Ford ’s massive worldwide debut of the all-new 2015 Mustang was nothing short of spectacular. While the Mustang coupe stole the show, the convertible made its appearance but didn’t seem to make its presence known. However, Ford is pulling out the stops to properly introduce the redesigned pony. Just like it did 50 years ago, Ford is putting a Mustang atop the Empire State Building, parking on the observation deck along the 86th floor.

Unfortunately, Ford is running into the same issue it had debuting the first-generation Mustang — how to get it up there. A simple helicopter drop becomes impossible when considering the deck’s close proximity to the Empire’s tall spire. Rolling in a mobile crane would work except a crane that tall doesn’t exist. So, like the Mustang before, the new pony will squeeze into an elevator.

As you can imagine, the ‘Stang would have a hard time fitting in an elevator built for people. Just like in 1964, the car will be sliced into three sections before making the ascension. Ford’s team of engineers with then have a mere six hours to reassemble the car before its grand debut 1,454 feet off the ground on April 16, coinciding with the New York Auto Show happening below. The car will be on display for a short 54 hours before the process happens in reverse.

Since it first hit the market, the Ford Mustang has been one of the “go-to” vehicles for great movie cars. From Bullitt all the way to this year’s Need for Speed movie, this pony is the king of the silver screen. One of the most memorable Mustangs to entrance theater goers was Eleanor in the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds. The Eleanor from the film was a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT 500 , but many modern remakes of that classic machine now roam the road. If you want a modern “Eleanor” GT500 , I know just the place to get one; RK Motors in Charlotte, North Carolina.

This particular Mustang is a 2007 model with a host of visual and performance upgrades. From the supercharged V-8 dumping almost 500 horsepower towards those rear wheels to the shimmer of that Satin Silver paint, this is one machine you don’t want to miss.

When Ford revealed the Mustang on December 5th, 2014, it took what it has built in recent years and did the impossible: make it better. The new, European styling is not as over-the-top as I feared it may be and it only added to the model’s outstanding legacy.

Well, now we all get to drool over the topless version, which is sure to ruin the lives of toupee wearers around the globe.

The details are still not complete on the 2015 Mustang Convertible, much like its coupe brother, but we are able to piece things together using the details from the coupe, the limited information on the convertible and the few image that Ford released.

One thing is for sure; Ford did a good job in designing the convertible Mustang separate from the coupe, giving them distinct appearances that reminds me of the Fox Body years.

The 2015 Ford Mustang to Star in "Need for Speed"

The 2015 Ford Mustang has drummed up plenty of interest, with its European design and independent rear suspension. Its starring role in the upcoming "Need For Speed" movie simply added fuel to the fire.

Now the upcoming Stang is set to hit the front page again, as the earlier-mentioned role in "Need For Speed" is prepared to cross the auction block. And this is no normal Mustang, as it comes with a custom wide-body kit, a set of Forgiato 22-inch alloy wheels, an enlarged grille with revised air intakes, rocker-panel extensions, a twin-snorkel hood and low-profile mirrors. Add in its silver paint with Kona Blue racing stripes, and you can see that this truly is a one-of-a-kind Mustang.

To my knowledge, there are no engine mods, but given this beast packs at least 420 horsepower, then no mods are really necessary.

This custom Mustang will roll across the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction on April 12th, 2014. The car will be sold with no reserve and all of the proceeds will benefit the Henry Ford Health System.

Nearly every car enthusiast knows that the Ford Mustang was released on April 17th, 1964, but what if I told you that the first Mustang was actually sold on the 15th. Even more surprising is the fact that this was not special treatment given to some big celebrity at the time. That’s right, folks, Gail Wise — a 22-year-old school teacher at the time — bought the first ever Mustang two days before its release.

She came across this $3,400, Skylight Blue Mustang when she went to a dealer to buy a convertible , but the dealer was fresh out of drop-top models, except the Mustang in question. When the dealer took her into a back room to see the `Stang , she borrowed enough money from her parents to buy it on the spot. The date: April 15th, 1964 — two days before the pony car made its debut at the World’s Fair.

The car ran into issues in 1979, and Gail’s husband parked it in the garage until the early 2000s, despite his wife’s pleas to sell the car.

I don’t want to spoil the entire video for you, so I’ll stop here and let you check it out for yourself. It is an inspiring and interesting story.

As Ford preps for the all-new 2015 Mustang ’s appearance, it’s giving the 2014 model one last hurrah in the Japanese market with this 2014 ‘Stang GT "The Black.” This isn’t the first time Japan has gotten its own special edition Mustang in murdered-out form, but this will surely be the most special, as Ford is only producing 40 examples.

Making this pony car unique are bespoke 19-inch black wheels, a unique black interior package, the glass roof package, and of course, a black exterior paint scheme. Further details include brightly machined faces on the wheels with the glossy black finish giving contrast from the wheel pockets. White stitching on the black leather seats and atop the dashboard also gives a nice contrast.

Ford’s popular glass roof makes its appearance here too, while preventing 90 percent of infrared rays and 96 percent of ultraviolet rays from entering the cockpit. Such a feature might come in rather handy while thundering through the land of the rising sun.

Speaking of thunder, plenty of it will be had with the 5.0-liter singing into the dual exhaust pipes. A healthy 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque turn the rear wheels bolted to the Mustang’s soon-gone live rear axle. The Black holds an MSRP of 5.05 million Japanese Yen, which is $49,252 at the current conversion rates.

There’s not much more sacred to classic American motoring than the Ford Mustang , with its origins dating back to 1964. It’s been an icon of freedom and enjoyable pastime. The same can be said for the classic arcade game of pinball.

With its heyday in the 1970s, the pinball machine was a hugely-popular pastime for teens looking to get out of the house and spend time with friends. Perhaps more than a few were driving early-model Mustangs handed down from mom and dad.

Well the two are coming together in a special way for the 2014 Chicago Auto show . Ford and the legendary Stern Pinball have built three unique pinball machines to commemorate the pop-culture contributions the two companies have made. The Mustang-themed tables feature the Boss 302 , Boss 351, and Boss 429 of 1969 to 1971 and 2012 to 2013.

Of the three games, one is signed by the game’s designer and features the original ’65 Mustang setting next to the all-new 2015 ’Stang . All three styles are covered in Mustang badges and insignias for the full effect. The machines will be built for use in arcades and public areas all over the U.S. No word yet on when the games will start appearing in local arcades, however.

To be among the first to own the newest and shiniest hardware has always been coveted, and that still held true as the opportunity for ownership of the first production 2015 Ford Mustang rolled across the Barret-Jackson auction block on Saturday, January 18th.

The winning bidder will pay Ford a handsome sum of $300,000 for the Mustang after a back-and-forth bidding war between the competing contenders. What’s more, all the proceeded will be given to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, a foundation whose purpose is researching treatments and cures for Type 1 diabetes in children.

Although the deep blue 2015 Mustang was on the block, it isn’t the one up for auction. The lucky winner will get to custom order their 5.0-liter-powered GT with either the six-speed manual or six-speed automatic; with any interior and exterior color Ford offers; and any factory-optioned striping combination. The Mustang will be the first off the assembly line when production begins later this year.

The new-generation Ford Mustang is one of the stars at this year’s Detroit Auto Show , but it will be quite some time before customers get the chance to drive it. Until then, you can enjoy seeing the new `Stang in action on the silver screen, as it will be featured in the upcoming "Need for Speed" movie that is set to be released on March 14th.

Since the original Mustang was launched in April 1964, the muscle car has made more than 3,200 appearances in movies and television shows, so it is quite a hit in Hollywood.

In the upcoming "Need For Speed" movie, Aaron Paul will drive a custom 2015 Mustang that NFS director Scott Waugh specially selected. According to Waugh, the Mustang "is a car that really represents American culture," and this was the reason why he selected it. We’re willing to bet that the popularity of the all-new Mustang also weighed pretty heavily on his decision too.

Check out the video (above) to see exactly how fun it is to drive the new Mustang.

Ford just unveiled the sixth-generation Mustang and it looks like plenty of aftermarket companies were impressed by its amazing tuning capacities.

A virtual kit was just announced by the folks over at Forgiato Wheels in cooperation with Kris Horton from CarsbyKris. Apparently the two companies wanted to have something ready for the car in time for its official debut in April 2014 — the Mustang ’s 50th anniversary.

As we can see from the first images of the modded car, this special Mustang will be updated with a pretty aggressive body kit and a new set of wheels designed by Forgiato.

What we really like on this car is its bright exterior paint that combines perfectly with the new carbon-fiber elements, and the new set of wheels that are contrasted by red brake calipers.
