Want to experience the Ford Mustang from multiple perspectives as it speeds around the legendary Silverstone race track?
A new interactive video enables viewers to do just that. Shot at Silverstone with a fastback powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine, the video allows you to rotate the vantage point from inside the car.
Just like in a video game, you can also seamlessly switch to helicopter and front bumper views, see the Mustang’s position on an active map, and check the speedometer and rev counter.
Viewers start the action by clicking on the car’s iconic pony symbol, and start button. The camera is adjusted using the arrow keys, track pad, or mouse. Clicking on a helicopter icon displays the aerial view, clicking the front view displays the view from the grille.

“We wanted everyone to be able to experience a Mustang V8 at high speed on a great track”
– Mark Truby, vice president, Communications & Public Affairs, Ford of Europe.
“What makes this video unique is the viewer is in complete control of the vantage point. They can view in any direction just as if they were in the cockpit of the Mustang, switch to drone view, check speed and RPM. It’s totally immersive.”
Footage for the 80-second film was captured in a single day using six GoPro cameras inside the car, as well as drone and front bumper cameras. This was then meticulously edited to ensure a seamless panorama. Professional driver Paul Swift drove the Mustang on the 2.6-kilometre (1.6-mile) lap of the National Circuit at Silverstone, home to the F1 British Grand Prix.
“I have never seen a 360° film of this quality before – it really is like being in the car,” Swift said. “I’d love to tell you how it’s done but I’m sworn to secrecy!”
