Bassline Junkie Dizzee Rascal Rides In A Classic Ford Zodiac

No need for speed, heroin, coke or ketamine. Dizzee's a bassline & classic Ford junkie

Remind me later
Like fellow rapper Devlin, Dizzee Rascal has a penchant for classic cars. The classic for Rascal's latest music video is this Ford Mk3 Zodiac, a more luxurious version of the Zephyr model, which was built between 1962 and 1966. Taking the four-door saloon from 0-60mph in 13.4 seconds is a 2.5-litre straight-6 that pumped out 109bhp, meaning it was capable of a top speed of 100mph. Less than average figures today but not too shabby for something from the 60s. It's not the first time he's featured something old school. Remember Pussyole in 2007? That had a Ferrari 308 GTS and a 911 from 1974. Like all the rappers across the pond though, he couldn't resist modifying the Zodiac. Check out the wheels; they drop a bassline all by themselves. Bassline Junkie is available to download now and is part of the Mixtape. Check out the crazy music video here. (You'll need headphones for this one, people!)
