If you’re Formula D champion Vaughn Gittin Jr., there’s no better way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day than with a four leaf clover drift in a 900 horsepower Mustang.
This is exactly the kind of stunt millions of gearheads dream about, and when you’re a celebrated professional driver with connections at Ford, you can actually get the authorities to close down the road for you. And we’re so glad they did, because this footage is awesome. For folks who’ve never done any kind of high-performance driving — and for plenty who have — the dark art of balancing on the ragged edge of traction is a mystery, and getting to watch Gittin Jr. do it here is wicked.
Of course, this isn’t the kind of thing you should try at home. But if you’re looking to pick up a Mustang of your own, head to your local AutoNation Ford dealer. We’ve gotten a chance to test a few of the current generation, from the 460-horsepower GT, to a track-ready version sporting the Performance Pack 2, to the limited edition Bullitt, and we loved them all.
But you don’t have to take our word for it, after a test drive, you’ll understand why the Blue Oval’s pony car is such an icon!
