This limited edition Mustang is based on the 2015 Mustang GT fastback but includes a performance package. 50 Years Limited Edition delivers outstanding performance and unique appearance.
It is driven by the upgraded 5.0-liter V8 engine, which produces 420 horsepower (310 kW) and 530 Nm (390 lb.-ft.) f torque. Every 50 Year Limited Edition will be equipped with the Mustang GT performance pack, which includes six-piston Brembo front brakes and 19-inch alloy wheels fitted with high-performance Y-speed-rated Pirelli P-Zero summer tires.
Inside, there is a distinctive aluminum trim panel that spans the double-brow instrument panel and gets an axel spin finish. A special serialized 50 Year Limited Edition badge on the passenger side adds also to the uniqueness of the model. This limited-edition Mustang is the only model with a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The same stitching is also applied on the instrument panel, shifter boot, center armrest, door inserts and seats.
Ford and Barrett-Jackson have raised more than $6 million US dollars at various auctions benefiting local and national charities.
