Ford has revealed a limited, 50th anniversary edition of the new Mustang at the New York motor show. The limited edition car, based on the Mustang GT fastback, will come in a choice of white or blue colours. Mustang will only make 1964 units of this anniversary edition model as a homage to the original Mustang's launch year.
Styling upgrades over the standard car include extra chrome trim on the exterior, new tail-light housings, and a unique badge at the rear, denting its rarity. This special Mustang features lowered three-quarter windows, another hark to the 1965 original.
Inside, Ford has upgraded the Mustang's cabin with special aluminium trim alongside new badging, stitching and a new steering wheel. The seats feature the Mustang 50th anniversary logo, while bespoke floormats are also fitted.
Using the same 5.0-litre V8 engine as the GT and fitted with Ford's performance pack, the 50th anniversary Mustang will roll out 414bhp and 54kgm of torque. Performance brakes and special 19-inch alloys are also fitted, alongside performance tyres.
Models will come with either an automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox. If choosing the manual option, customers will also get a limited-slip rear differential.
Production of the 50th anniversary Mustang will go underway later this year and will go on sale in the international market by autumn.
