Ford recently took 9 of their engineers on the ride of a lifetime during what they thought would be a routine commercial video shoot. The engineers, expecting to be shooting a commercial focusing on the technology of the 2013 Ford Taurus SHO, were in for a surprise when they entered the car and saw NASCAR’s Carl Edwards in the driver’s seat.
The videos produced are part of a series titled “Rocket Science,” which feature Edwards racing around the Infineon Raceway while talking to the nervous engineers about the Taurus’ technology. The first four episodes have been released and are named after impressive features of the Taurus SHO: EcoBoost, High-Tech Thrill Ride, Blind Spot Pursuit, and Screaming MPG.
Check out the videos below to watch as the engineers attempt to casually talk about these features while Edwards whips them around.
