Do you fancy a spin in the all‑new Ford Mustang from multiple perspectives as it speeds around the legendary Silverstone race track.

Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine this video allows the viewer to rotate the vantage point from inside the Mustang using the mouse or curser.

Footage for the 80-second film was captured in a single day using six GoPro cameras inside the car, as well as drone and front bumper cameras. This was then meticulously edited to ensure a seamless panorama. Professional driver Paul Swift drove the Mustang on the 2.6-kilometre (1.6-mile) lap of the National Circuit at Silverstone, home to the F1 British Grand Prix. For the online version of the Mustang film, viewers start the action by clicking on the car’s iconic pony symbol, and start button. The camera is adjusted using the arrow keys, track pad, or mouse. Clicking on a helicopter icon displays the aerial view, clicking the Mustang’s fascia displays the view from the grille.
