As part of the promotional campaign for the new 2015 Ford Mustang in Europe, the American car maker dispatched Formula Drift champion and action sports superstar Vaughn Gittin Jr. to Loheac, France. Gittin’s mission was to raise awareness for the Mustang the only way he knows how: by drifting!

This engine is expected to be the most popular in Europe.
