Have you ever wondered which of the most expensive passenger cars Ford currently offers? GT is not counted because a Canadian company builds it and production is relatively limited. The answer is obvious, isn’t it?
As you can tell from the Facebook post at the end of this story, the Dearborn Fire Department certainly understands how special your Predator V8-engraved pony is. “This week we trained in vehicle promotion,”; and as part of training, “It almost broke our hearts to break this test vehicle.” Before you cry, remember that prototype cars cannot be sold.
The comments section is similarly interesting to see a GT500 in this sorry condition. “Best possible use for a Mustang,” said Jeremy Strey. “They saved countless innocent car show patrons by destroying this pile.” Others are not funny, using a more destructive stance. “We used crashed cars so it’s more real world experience,” said Rudy Doc Grajeda. “A new car can easily break down.

Whichever side you are on, we can all agree that men and women who make any kind of emergency rescue deserve our appreciation. Cutting a GT500 may seem like fun to us outsiders, but in a life and death scenario, the experience firefighters gain from this training session will save lives.
