It is a white convertible with 460 hp, emulo of the cabrio also from the 60s animated by a V8 engine of 164 units.
Eighteen months of work were enough to realize the idea of Ford's drivers to make a vehicle younger and more daring than the Falcon, which rolled in 1964 when the first hardtop and convertible hardtop Mustangs appeared on the platform of that sedan and a year later the fastback or GT version, designed by prototype builder Carroll Shelby, the father of celebrities and very expensive Cobra car & # 39; s.
It was presented that year in the New York Hall and was an immediate sales success, which led to the appearance of similar pieces from other brands, all associated with the segment of muscle cars & # 39; (muscle cars), a term that arose spontaneously from the sixties and seventies to describe these bizarre design cars and engines potent.
Since the Mustang has not stopped producing, even in spite of the oil crisis in the 80s and 90s, which forced the brand to be smaller and popular & # 39; design models, completely removed from the muscular & # 39; aspect of the first copies, until it returned in 2005 with the face and style that characterized the first years of his life.
Since the plants that produce the Mustang have not stopped and world sales continue to grow, to the point that, 54 years after birth, appeared in the production line of Flat Rock (United States), the unit 10 & # 39; 000,000.
To celebrate in style, the car received a powerful 5.0-liter engine with 460 horsepower, coupled with a six-speed manual and was armed with a Wimbledon white convertible GT body, corresponding to the forerunner of the saga of 1964, that moved with another V8 of 164 units and a manual box with three marches.
During his 54 years of life, Mustang was manufactured in San José (California), Metuchen (New Jersey) and in the original factory, located in Dearborn (Michigan). The 10,000,000 piece is also from Michigan, in particular from Flat Rock.
The Mustang arrived on the North American market in response to the Chevrolet Corvette, which had successfully rolled into the United States since 1953. He competed with the Ford Thunderbird, a model that finally did not meet his rival and forced the company to think of a more imposing substitute and, above all, affordable for the Americans.
Three overflights of the same number of P-5 Mustang hunters from the Second World War served as a framework for the celebration of the event involving paraded, from Dearborn to Flat Rock, a number of copies of all time.
Tribute to Steve McQueen
Five decades after the famous chase with Steve McQueen with a Ford Mustang in the movie Bullitt, the North American brand decided to pay tribute to him with a copy of a limited edition, painted with the dark green color he used in 1968 or in black & # 39; shade & # 39;exclusively for this model. The body is the conventional GT and the engine is a 5.0-liter V8 but 428 hp and 595 Nm of torque, with manual transmission maneuvered from a beam that copies the original Bullitt.
