The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang is allegedly equipped with an electronic burnout control system.
The new pony car has created a lot of buzz around the automotive media and it seems Ford has an ace up its sleeve for the sixth-gen Mustang which will reportedly have some sort of electronic aid to do burnouts. According to Motor Authority, the system will enable drivers to "execute the perfect, smoky, epic burnout" and can be characterized as the equivalent of a launch control for burnouts.
Exact details about how this system works are not known at this moment but MT believes it could enable a line lock on the front brakes while at the same time turning off the traction control system to reach the suitable engine speed in order to release the clutch which would allow for a burnout procedure.
Many will believe using electronic aids to perform a burnout will take away most of the fun and we certainly can't blame them for that. Chances are this burnout control system can be disabled so drivers will have the possibility to perform burnouts the old fashioned way.
