The iconic Ford Mustang now comes in two special edition variants for the European markets. The Ford Mustang Special Editions available are Mustang Black Shadow and Blue Edition.
The new Ford Mustang Black Shadow Edition offers special black 19-inch alloys wheels and unique black body details. While, the Mustang Blue Edition channels the spirit of classic #ford Mustang models that featured eye-catching “Grabber” colors, offering a Grabber Blue body with sporty body stripes.
Both models are available in fastback bodystyle and offer a high-specification that includes heated and cooled seats, Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system with navigation, and a premium audio system.
The Ford Mustang Black Shadow will be available with a 421 PS 5.0-liter V8 engine and six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission, from January 2017. Offered in four body colors (Platinum White, Triple Yellow, Race Red and Grabber Blue), the Mustang Black Shadow edition features unique bodystyling that includes a black Pony emblem for the GT grille; exclusive black 19-inch Y-spoke alloy wheels; dissolve-effect black stripes along the prominent bonnet bulge ridges and across the body-side between the lower wheel arches; and black 5.0-liter badges on the front wings.
The high specification limited edition model delivers parking sensors, heated and cooled front seats, a premium ShakerPro audio system with 12-speakers and a powerful 8-inch boot-mounted subwoofer, and a premium black leather interior with prominent instrument panel stitching and matching door inserts.
With the Mustang Blue edition, the Mustang special edition comes in Ford’s distinctive Grabber colors, named for their ability to grab attention. The Grabber hues, available in 20 colors, were first introduced for the 1969 Shelby GT350 and GT500 models.
The new Ford Mustang Blue edition is available with either Ford’s 421 PS 5.0-liter V8 or the more fuel-efficient 317 PS 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine and six-speed manual or automatic transmissions, and delivers the eye-catching Grabber Blue exterior body color enhanced with central dissolve-effect black bonnet and roof stripes, and black 19-inch multi-spoke alloys wheels.
The Mustang’s 5.0l V8 fastback manual model reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standing start in 4.8 seconds, and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost fastback manual reaches the marker in 5.8 seconds.
Almost 23,000 Mustang have been sold and ordered in Europe since the iconic sports car’s launch in summer of 2015; around two thirds of those have been fastback models. Red, grey and black are the most popular Mustang colors in Europe and 64 per cent of customers select the V8 engine. EcoBoost models are most popular in southern Europe.
