More rubber meets the road later this year when Ford expands the availability of electronic line-lock on 2018 Mustang. The track-exclusive feature – previously available only on V8-powered Mustang GT – will be standard on all pony cars, including those equipped with 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engines.
The feature is available with either the 10-speed SelectShift® automatic or six-speed manual transmission.
On models equipped with an available 12-inch, all-digital instrument display, drivers will see an industry-first, video-game-like animation of a spinning alloy wheel kicking up a cloud of smoke to indicate when the electronic line-lock feature is activated.
“Burnouts just never get old, no matter how old you are and how many times you’ve done them,” said Vaughn Gittin Jr., Formula Drift Champion. “Who would have thought that we would see an EcoBoost Mustang producing 15 seconds of fury like this? You’ve got to love these rad things Ford is doing.”
To introduce the new updates to the world…
Maserati has chosen the most prestigious car culture event in the world to unveil the MY18 GranTurismo and GranCabrio. The iconic four-seater coupé makes its European premiere two days after it was revealed at the NYSE (New York Stock Exchange), while the GranCabrio makes its world debut at Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The Maserati stand at Goodwood makes its mark this year by celebrating 70 years of GranTurismo. Alongside the newly introduced GranTurismo and GranCabrio, a collection of classic GT Maserati cars will tell the GranTurismo story to the public.
GranTurismo is a genuinely Italian car concept pioneered by Maserati and remains the purest expression of the Modena based marque. The following legendary Maserati GT models will be on display at Goodwood:
A6 1500: the original GranTurismo model was launched at the 1947 Geneva Motor Show featuring a 1.5-litre six-cylinder in-line engine with 65hp under a revolutionary body designed by Pininfarina.
