Doing the perfect burnout every time is something that many Mustang owners aspire too. Now, if you get the 2015 Ford Mustang GT, you will be able to impress your friends and warm up your wheels every time you want.

Ford has finally revealed the Mustang’s secret that it hinted at last year, and calls the feature Line Lock. It causes the front brakes to hold firm while releasing the rears, creating the perfect burnout. However, if you’re a purist and prefer to do things the old fashioned way, you can always disable this feature.

It also comes with a bit of a warning. While Line Lock is standard, it is only meant to be used at the drag strip where drivers use it to warm up the wheels. Ford also warns that if you race your Mustang, it will void your warranty.

Check out this video for some sweet Mustang burnout action.

When building the next generation of automobiles, especially one as important as the all-new 2015 Mustang, it can be difficult to road test the models without attracting attention. And when it comes to the Mustang, which has now been going strong for 50 years, the attention from auto paparazzi is even greater. According to Ford, it took less than an hour for spy shots to appear online after the Mustang was taken on public roads for the very first time back in June.

But Ford had come prepared. An entire design team worked on the Mustang’s camouflage, creating and putting in place hard plastic, foam, vinyl, and ratchet straps to alter its appearance and mislead spectators. That really got our curiosity-sense tickled here at Hassett Automotive, so we figured we would the video that talks all about the camouflage process:
