Ford Mustang Drift Cars Set New World Record For Largest Tire-Mark Image: Video

A pair of drift-spec Ford Mustang RTR-Ds in Saudi Arabia have set a new Guinness World Record for the largest tire-mark image, spending a total of 45 minutes to lay down 9,515 ft2 of rubber in the shape of a breast cancer awareness ribbon.

The record was awarded to Saudi Arabian Ford distributor Al Jazirah Vehicles Agencies and Al Jazirah Ford Racing, which outfitted both its Ford Mustang RTR-D drift cars with special burnout tires that created an appropriately-pink cloud of smoke while the stunt was being carried out. The cars themselves are several steps above and beyond your typical, available-to-every-American Ford Mustang RTR, featuring stripped interiors, sequential gearboxes, and fully-built racing motors.

In other words: your Ford Mustang probably can’t replicate this.

Al Jazirah Vehicles Agencies, naturally, created the record-making burnout art in order to help raise awareness for breast cancer. “We need to do more as a society to promote breast cancer awareness throughout the year with creative ideas that connect with key audiences in our society,” says Al Jazirah President Sheikh Abdullah bin Fahad Al-Kraidees. “We have to talk more about topics which impact people‚Äôs health, and push the importance within our communities about the need for early screening which improves the chances of recovery from breast cancer.”
