We spent last week with Ford at their Future Trends event in Detroit, and one of the sessions included seeing how they test their cars in a wind tunnel.

We were taken to Wind Tunnel 8 where we would be standing in the wind tunnel during a test.

Because we were actually in the wind tunnel they only took it up to around 25 mph.
