Nothing out of the ordinary there, but Ford also thoughtfully put <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/tag/nascar/">NASCAR</a> driver <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/tag/carl+edwards/">Carl Edwards</a> in the driver's seat, and it turns out that the boffins didn't realize how capable their car was until the Sprint Cup driver showed them.<br /><br />In a new series of TV and internet spots called "Rocket Science," Edwards spends most of his time going tire-smoking sideways while engineers discuss the features of the hotted-up all-wheel drive Taurus, like the blind-spot assistance system and its 475-mile range. There's a press release with the particulars, but you'll want to click <a href="/2012/04/02/ford-straps-engineers-in-2013-taurus-sho-with-carl-edwards-hila/#continued">past to jump</a> to check out the vids showing a string of very nervous engineers in the hands of a very professional driver on a very closed course.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/02/ford-straps-engineers-in-2013-taurus-sho-with-carl-edwards-hila/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Ford straps engineers in 2013 Taurus SHO with Carl Edwards, hilarity ensues</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/04/02/ford-straps-engineers-in-2013-taurus-sho-with-carl-edwards-hila/">Ford straps engineers in 2013 Taurus SHO with Carl Edwards, hilarity ensues</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Mon, 02 Apr 2012 19:32:00 EST.
