Illegal street racers take on the law in the world’s most intense police chase! Sort of.
Special thanks to Rob and Big as well as the Need for Speed: Most Wanted team for making this video possible! The game comes out on 10/30, and it’s made by Criterion, aka dudes who know what racing games are all about.

This version is based on the 179hp 1.6-liter EcoBoost model and it was built by Ice Nine Group, which says it drew its inspiration from the V8 Supercar Series. The green colored Fusion with the black accents gets new wheels and a set of aerodynamic enhancements highlighted by the large rear wing.
The Blue Oval is introducing a 3.7-liter twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) V6 engine to the car’s range.
This is the same 3.7-liter V6 unit with an output of 305-horsepower and 279 lb.-ft. of torque found on the Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility Vehicle, and it will squeeze between the already available 285hp flex-fuel 3.5-liter V6 and the 365HP 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6.
According to Ford, the horsepower and torque ratings of the 3.7-liter engine are the highest of any naturally aspirated V6 offered for pursuit-rated sedans in the country.
With this engine, the Police Interceptor Sedan achieves a fuel economy of 25 mpg (9.4lt/100km) on the highway, 18 mpg (13.1 lt/100km) in the city and 21 mpg (11.2lt/100km) combined.
Named the ZERO’D and billed as the “world’s first elite eco-friendly custom-built muscle car”, the four-door saloon is based on a 1967 Ford XR Falcon. It’s the brainchild of Mick Fabar, owner of Green Homes Australia, who wanted to create a muscle car with a green footprint – not only when it came to power, but it’s construction as well.
The ZERO’D was fitted with a 7.3-liter Ford Powerstroke turbocharged V8 diesel capable of delivering 600-ponies to the rear wheels through an Allison four-speed automatic transmission.
The V8 was modified to run on commercially available B20 biofuel (20% bio, 80% diesel fuel), in which case, exhaust emission are reduced up to 70 per cent, “whilst still delivering impressive horsepower and torque”, according to Fabar.
What’s even more impressively green about the ZERO’D is that it was built using primarily recycled materials. All exterior body panels of the Falcon are second-hand and its hand-stitched black leather interior trim is made entirely from hide off-cuts and ‘seconds’ that would normally be discarded, while the nuts and bolts are also recycled.
The owner says it took 11 months to plan and seven months to build the car, with Queensland’s Bond University documenting every step of the build to ensure the production team maintained its carbon footprint of zero.
