“There are certain cars throughout history that have their own identity. They become synonymous with feeling and energy, an event in your life,” says Latifah. “A Mustang is a Mustang; the car is timeless.”
On June 24, 2009, Latifah took a detour from promoting her new album to head to the New Jersey Motorsports Park, where Colin Braun and the 2010 Mustang were waiting for her. “Are you ready,” Braun asked her. She held on tight while he white-knuckled her through a few hot laps and then Latifah joked, “It’s time to conquer this track,” before she threw on her own helmet and experienced the raw power and handling of the new 2010 Mustang.
