TL;DR

This 2002 Ford Taurus is the most incredible car ever made

New, 55 comments

I've always thought of the Ford Taurus as an unassuming family sedan, mathematically optimized not to offend anyone with its styling or performance.

I just threw those ridiculously uninformed opinions out of a 20-story window.

An Omaha man — an American hero and owner of a 2002 Taurus — spared no expense filming a Craigslist ad when the time came to part with his steel steed, relying heavily on drone footage and cinematic pans to turn a mild four-door into the baddest-ass vehicle on the road. For audio, the video uses narration from an ad for a 1987 Taurus, which has all the dramatic verbiage you'd expect from an ’80s-vintage car spot.

If you don't want this car after watching the video, check your pulse. Academy Awards, here we come.
