Ford has officially unveiled the Mustang GT's electronic burnout control system.

Dubbed electronic line-lock, the system keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes. The driver can then hit the accelerator to do a burnout without having to balance one foot on the brake and the other on the gas.

While Ford plays up the drag racing angle, they say electronic line-lock is "intended for use only on racetracks." Of course, they also add "racing your vehicle will void your warranty."

Regardless, Mustang chief engineer Dave Pericak said “We’re using advanced controls technology for the all-new Mustang to provide some of our most dedicated fans with an industry-first feature they can use when they go to the track. With electronic line-lock, customers who drive their Mustangs to work all week and then compete on the weekends will appreciate not having to modify their brake systems to be able to do effective tire prep at the drag strip.”
