2011 Ford Mustang V6 Epic FAIL

Here is what happens when a bonehead removes the speed limiter from his new car and then goes on a max speed run while filming it themselves.

Major damage caused by the broken shaft included a hole in the metal floorpan, major exhaust system and muffler damage, broken transmission shifter, broken parking brake, broken interior plastic trim parts, etc.

As it turns out, 305-horsepower, 280-pound-feet of torque 3.7-liter V6 Mustang is built with a 2.73 rear gear ratio and a lightweight, one-piece driveshaft that’s engineered to toe the line between fuel economy and performance. That driveshaft is part of the recipe that allow the coupe to produce yield 31 mpg highway – it simply isn’t built to handle the type of speeds the owner in the video submitted it to.
