Video: A quick way to destroy your Ford Mustang V6
Idiocy comes in many shapes and forms, some more ridiculous than others. For the owner of this Ford Mustang V6, a clear disregard of the limits of your muscle car certainly counts as an act of plain lunacy.
Determined to show-off his new Mustang V6, the driver decided to bring his muscle car into an isolated road to stretch its proverbial legs. What started as a leisurely joy ride slowly turned into a pretty ill-advised attempt at showing off.
Not content with the Mustang V6’s electronically limited top speed of 115 mph, the driver decided to extract a little more juice from his muscle car, flooring the car to well over 140 mph - it would have been fine if he had the 5.0-liter V8 Mustang - which is pretty much all the way north of what the car is capable.
The result, as the last few seconds of the video will show you, is what happens when common sense flies right out the window. Not only did the driver completely destroy the Mustang’s drive shaft - it ripped into the floor pan! - but he also managed to break the transmission and severely damage the muffler AND the exhaust system.
There’s a reason why the Mustang V6 has a speed limiter. This dude, apparently, didn’t get the memo and his car paid a pretty steep price for his utter idiocy.
