This Ford GT Carves Up Traffic On The Run From The Law

Ever wondered how it feels to try and outrun the police in a supercar? Wonder no longer...

What we have here is some intense on-board footage of a lightly modified Ford GT attempting to out-run the fuzz. Our pixelated driver has taken his supercar out for a blast on the freeway when his passenger, Super Speeders' Rob Ferretti, spots a cop in the distance. Sure enough, the in-car equipment picks up a police radar gun that has caught them travelling rather too briskly, and after the briefest of discussions about whether to go for it, they take the only sensible option - they give it the beans.
On board with a Ford GT. Brace for illegal shenanigans and awesome noise. On board with a Ford GT. Brace for illegal shenanigans and awesome noise.
This particular GT made 617rwhp thanks to a chip and bigger throttle body, and our driver made full use of that in his escape. Acting as a spotter, Ferretti helps carve a route through traffic, using radios to keep tab on their pursuers. In amongst the mild panic is the sound of that glorious V8, highlighted by the Ford Racing exhaust. What is not apparent is the outcome for the driver and passenger, although the video does close with news of a police car closing in on them and the passenger repeating the line “we are f****d”. One can only imagine that if the law did catch up with Thelma and Louise, they were unlikely to have responded with any sympathy whatsoever. You will perhaps be unsurprised to learn that this Ford GT is now in the scrapheap in the sky, having met its untimely demise shortly before Ferretti took over its payments. Video

This is me and my dad, and we are stood next to my absolute pride and joy (Betty the Beetle). This post however isn’t about her as such, it is about that man stood next to me. He put real blood (take the bonnet off beetles when working under them, they catch you out big time!) sweat, and tears in to this restoration for me and 5 years later she is just about ready to make her way on to the roads. We have had a lot of help along the way but he has truly been grafting on this from building a sandblasting cabinet in our shed to working in there till the early hours of the morning, killing himself for me. I just want to say thank you Dad for giving me the best thing that money cant buy. You. And so for this I would like to ask if Car Throttle could post this on their Facebook page and everyone to share to show my Dad that not only I but everyone else appreciates the work he has put in to it and for the world to see how he made my dreams a reality.

Thank you Dad,

Benjamin Stephens
