As the Mustang starts to reach other parts of the world, Ford is expanding its marketing push for the car. One of the latest examples is an incredible interactive video that documents driver Paul Swift lapping the historic Silverstone racetrack in the United Kingdom.
Not only does this video show you the carâ€™s track position, rpm, and speed as it laps the course, but it allows the viewer to change vantage points from positions as disparate as the front bumper or an overhead helicopter.
â€œThis video is a lot of fun, it makes you feel like youâ€™re behind the wheel of a Mustang,â€ Tom Barnes, Mustang vehicle engineering manager, said. â€œYou have complete control of your view as if youâ€™re actually driving on the track.â€
You can watch the fully interactive video right hereâ€¦
And, even if your browser or device doesnâ€™t support the 360-degree interactive video, you can watch Paul run Silverstone in this traditional YouTube vidâ€¦
That sort of action should get potential pony car buyers excited all over the world.
