Fifty years after debuting one of the world's most popular cars, Ford is marking the milestone by revealing a Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Created to honour five decades of Mustang heritage, only 1,964 examples of the 50 Year Limited Edition will ever be built when it goes on sale in the US market, later this year.
"When Mustang was approved for development more than 50 years ago, I don't think anyone imagined it would spawn such a dedicated base of fans around the world and still be in production today," said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company. Based on the all-new 2015 Mustang GT fastback with performance pack, the 50 Year Limited Edition is designed to provide customers with outstanding performance and a unique appearance that will be instantly recognizable on the road. The only options for the 50 Year Limited Edition are the choice of two exclusive colours and a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
"The new Mustang blends a muscular, contemporary shape with design cues that define it as quintessentially Mustang," said Moray Callum, Ford vice president of design. "The 50 Year Limited Edition adds details that set it apart from other Mustangs, while hearkening back to the 1965 original." The 50 Year Limited Edition car will be among the first 2015 Mustangs built when production begins later this year 2
