Virtual Reality App Allows Customers To Go Behind The Scenes at Ford


Have you wanted to see what happens behind the curtain when an elite racing team takes the new Ford GT to the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in a first-person view? With the new virtual reality app from Ford, customers can get up close and personal without leaving the comfort of their homes.

The new app puts Ford fans trackside for one of the most iconic auto races in the world with one of the most dynamic performance models ever built. The unique storytelling app puts users directly in the pit and into the cockpit as driver Joey Hand narrates the action. The latest iteration of the Ford GT won the LMGTE Pro Series for the first time in 50 years by out-dueling the Ferrari 488 GTE.

The Ford VR app is accessible to anyone with a mobile device, and with virtual reality headsets, users have a chance to experience the Ford GT at Le Mans like never before.

Ford has already released a follow up to the Ford GT at Le Mans experience featuring Hoonigan racing's Ken Block and the Ford Focus RS RX.

Using VR is a great way to experience vehicles that you might never see in-person, but the team at Griffin Ford in Waukesha, WI has the complete lineup of street-legal performance models from Ford in stock and ready to test drive. Whether you're looking for a Ford Focus RS or a Ford Mustang GT, our dealership has several performance models for sale that you can see up close and take for a spin.
