“A lot can happen in a half-mile. You can miss your exit, blow a tire, or your 2,000-horsepower twin-turbo Ford GT could hit 212.9 mph from a standstill … you know, everyday stuff. The Ford in question was tuned by the speed freaks at Hennessey Performance in Texas, and the top speed — a new world record, by the way, from a standstill start — was achieved at the annual Houston 1/2-mile shootout. Check out the high-speed view from a rear-mounted camera, and don’t tell anyone you’re pretending it’s the police you’re leaving in your dust.”
