Battery-electric powered drifting and performance driving excitement meets action tourism as Vaughn Gittin Jr. pushes the boundaries of electric vehicles with the Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400—to one of Earth’s most geographically exciting and remote places—to launch his newest film, Free Rein: Faroe Islands.
Free Rein: Faroe Islands has Gittin Jr. traveling by air, sea, and land to get to the Faroe Islands where there were no limitations to what Gittin Jr. could dream up. His partner in fun, the 1,400-horsepower battery-electric Mach-E 1400 as his guide, Vaughn visited a variety of breathtaking sites—including one of the world’s only subsea roundabout—experiencing the local Faroese traditions, and of course, taking car control to 11 by drifting the extremely tight and technical roads of this wild landscape.
–“I am so fortunate that we [Ford and RTR] have been able to push the boundaries of electric vehicles and do something so new that has never been done before,” said Gittin Jr. He continued, “Pioneering electric-battery power in the Ford Mustang Mach-E 1400 has been a dream for me, and it is our collective hope that all the learnings and fun that has been experienced will have a trickle-down effect in future road cars that consumers purchase. I am very excited about these future technologies and all which battery electric power has to offer!”
While 1,400 horsepower produces a mechanical symphony of electric motors and straight cut gears spinning, the custom designed sound-experience that projects—via high powered exterior speakers—in conjunction with Grammy Award winning artist T-Pain allows the viewer to fully immerse themselves in what the future of electric vehicles could be.
