Ford has announced a special version of 2012 Mustang V6, which will be offered with a new Mayhem performance package.

"We saw great enthusiasm from fans, with tons of creative, unique names coming in," commented Brian McClary, Ford social and emerging media specialist.

"The contest was twofold – it let us engage with fans by letting them have a say, and it helped build awareness for the package.", he added.
