Default 2015 Ford mustang offering line lock option for drag racers

Pretty cool feature.....I can see how this works for the OEM....you engage line lock, warranty goes bye bye

Different. You don't see this. Ever. I don't see any warranty issues...

Electronic line-lock for 2015 Mustang GT is intended for use only on racetracks. Racing your vehicle will void your warranty.

You can bet the car's computer stores how many time the line lock was used.

Guaranteed.

If you want to keep your warranty you better not touch it.

Most auto manufacturers will void the warranty for "spirited driving". At least Ford has the decency to tell you up front.

Who cares? It doesn't look like a Mustang anymore. Looks like a Aston Martin Vanquish got raped by a Ford Fusion and had the bastard child.

My guess it will be easy to bypass so people can still use it for drag racing under warranty.
