Cars have to be built to perform all sorts of tasks. Maybe I'm going to take my 2015 Shelby GT350 to the track. Maybe I'm going to drive it around Antarctica. Who's gonna stop me? North Korea? Hell no, not with a 5.2-liter flat plane crank V8 and more than 500 horses. Let 'em try.

Anyway, back to Antarctica. I might totally go there, so Ford has to subject the GT350 to rigorous cold weather testing, just as they do all of their vehicles. And this video shows exactly how that's done.

It shows how testers blast cars with ultra-cold air until it ices over, to see where snow and ice build up and how the vehicle responds when it does. It's nuts to watch. Things get very, very cold on that car.

On a side note, we're going to the Detroit Auto Show soon, and this video accurately simulates what happens to your car after five minutes of driving there in January.
