The life of a test mule is short and cruel.
The development process for a new car is an iterative process, and that process requires creating actual test samples that push their limits to ensure both quality and durability. These cars exist only for the sake of suffering and are pushed to their limits in far more extreme conditions than the average driver would ever do. This is an essential part of actually building a car, but the mules are thanked for their job by being crushed.
With that in mind, there's a worse fate for a test mule than what the Dearborn Fire Department did with this 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 test car. The car, which would otherwise have been crushed, was instead torn apart, as part of the live vehicle extraction training to prepare the department for emergency response. The process may have been a waste of 760 horsepower, but it sure hits the crusher.
