With the Mustang marking its 50th anniversary this month, Ford has announced that it will release a special-edition model that will be limited to just 1,964 units.
Called the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition, it will be based on the GT fastback model with the performance pack and have nearly every available option as standard. Customers only need to choose if their car is equipped with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, and if it will be finished in Wimbledon White or Kona Blue, both of which are exclusive to the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition.
Other visual elements that make the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition distinct from the regular Mustang are the large faux gas cap badge on the rear fascia and the louvered rear-quarter windows.
The limited-edition treatment continues inside with the aluminum trim panel on the dashboard getting an axel-spin finish, a serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge on the passenger side, and the cashmere-stitched leather-wrapped steering wheel. The seats also feature exclusive two-tone cashmere-and-black leather upholstery with the Mustang 50 Year logo embossed on the seat backs.
Powering the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition is a 5.0-liter V8 engine that puts out 420hp and 529Nm of torque.
"Mustang fans love to drive their cars, even the rarer examples of the breed, so we built this limited-edition from the best-performing 2015 Mustang available--the GT fastback with the performance pack," said Mustang chief engineer Dave Pericak. "While some collectors will undoubtedly stash this car away in a museum, those who choose to hit the open road will get a world-class sports car that can run with the best."
