Video: Ford Mustang ’10 Unleashed on Need for Speed gamers

You’re playing a racing game and you’re beating all challengers that come your way. In the middle of you dominant run, you start thinking to yourself, ‘hey, I can totally do this in real life and make everyone eat my dust’.

Well, for better or for worse, sometimes you get what you ask for.

This is what a couple of Need for Speed gamers found themselves in after being picked by Ford’s Mustang 10 Unleashed to unleash to burn rubber on a real race track. After hosting a tournament that featured the best Need for Speed players in the world, the four gamers who came out on top were treated with a very special prize: racing a real 2010 Ford Mustang.

But before being exposed to the world of real car racing, the four gamers were taught at the Fast lane Racing School about the nuances of real car racing – and not those that they’ve dominated on the video game circuit. After their crash course, the four gamers were then put the test against the 2010 Mustang.

Find out how they fared in the video.

Thanks for the tip Ben!

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

That is a great experience to drive a new Mustang just by playing Need for Speed Shift. I envy the winner of this game and also want to drive that sweet baby. Also the gamers of this contest were taught on a professional driving school and that’s so lucky tards to experience that.
