Video: Ford Performance Gives You The Keys To Speed Therapy

We have a question for you. Has getting out and driving your project vehicle ever gotten you through a rough patch in life? For many enthusiasts, taking the car out for a weekend drive is something we look forward to all week.

The team at Ford Performance know all too well that a performance car does much more than get drivers from point A to point B, it can genuinely help ease some of the personal stress many people may struggle with on a daily basis.

Earlier this year, Ford partnered with researchers to build a “Buzz Car,” and found that driving a fast car is actually good for your well-being. The study revealed that pilots of Ford’s Focus RS, Focus ST, or Mustang experienced an average of 2.1 high-intensity “buzz moments” during a commute, which stacked up nicely against other comparable fun experiences.

This week, the team at Ford Performance put these findings to good use by selecting a group of ordinary drivers, each coming from very different walks of life to experience precisely how driving a performance vehicle can help to boost your mood. The video, appropriately titled “Speed Therapy,” features professional stunt driver Crystal Hooks taking the unsuspected drivers for a spin in not one, but four different Ford Performance vehicles.

While riding shotgun in a car like the Shelby GT350 or even the Ford GT would be a thrill for many drivers, what makes this particular video so special is these drivers get to experience these vehicles from behind the driver’s seat.

The smiles on each of the driver’s faces really say it all. The video also confirms what many of us already know; that sometimes Speed Therapy in a Ford Performance vehicle is exactly the form of therapy to you may need to get you through the day.
