After a long wait, Ford finally revealed the 2015 Mustang to the world on the December 5, 2013. This time, Ford is going global with the Mustang making it available in multiple markets outside of the U.S.

Currently just a prototype, the 2015 Ford Mustang is not expected to arrive in showrooms anytime soon. That said, the first prototypes have been traveling the globe showcasing all that’s new about the pony car.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT recently payed a visit to Jay Leno’s Garage. Starting with the Mustang 1, Ford embarked on a journey that created an world famous icon. The first production Mustang with chassis no. 0001 was also at Jay’s garage accompanied by the then CEO of Ford Motor Co.

A good history lesson then, before the 2015 Mustang rolled in and along came the Mustang Chief Engineer who worked on the project. This being a pre-production prototype, Jay did not get to drive it, though.

However, he did get the opportunity of cranking-up the 5.0-liter V-8 engine. And doesn’t she sound like sweet music.

The movie adaptation of Go Like Hell already hasA-lister Tom Cruise in the fold and if recent reports are accurate, Cruise is set to be joined by another Hollywood heavyweight: Brad Pitt.

The two last co-starred in the 1994 movie Interview with a Vampire and the potential co-starring role will ignite a move that’s already being billed as a blockbuster adaptation of the A.J. Baime book that chronicled the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari during their glory years at Le Mans .

It’s already been reported that Cruise will be playing the role of Carroll Shelby in the movie with Joseph Kosinski sitting in the director’s chair. There’s been no mention of what role Pitt will play in the movie but if it’s any indication, it won’t come as a surprise if he stars as Ferrari’s very own patriarch, Enzo Ferrari.

It’ll be very interesting to see how the cast for Go Like Hell builds up. But with Cruise and possibly Pitt on board, it’s going to be one heck of a blockbuster.

Ford GT is no doubt one of the most powerful and fastest cars in the world, but with the right updates it can get even better than the stock version. In this video you will meet the fastest GT ever: equipped with a supercharger, two turbos and a little shot of nitrous, this special Ford GT run the quarter mile in 9.39 seconds at a speed of 151 mph.

Next to making this Ford GT supercar faster than ever, these changes also completely updated the sound of the V-8 powerplant, so the video is a must see for any GT fan out there.

For those of you whom do not remember, Ford GT is powered by a 5.4 liter V-8 engine that delivers a total of 500 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and up to a top speed of 205 mph.

More V-8 supercar news. This time it is an American car with a massively powerful V-8 in the form of a Ford GT X1 TT . This highly modified Ford GT has been worked up on by Rich Brooks from the The GT Guy LLC. The engine in this car puts out no less than 1000 horsepower.

Ford built the Ford GT in 2004 as a replacement for the Le Mans winning Ford GT40. The company produced just over 4000 units of the GT. The standard car was powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 coupled with a supercharger.

The thirsty configuration was able to put down 550 horsepower. The car was designed along the lines of the original with flared rear haunches and low roof line. It was pretty unique car this.

Rich Brooks was able to double the output by adding a twin-turbo contraption to the already powerful 5.4-liter V-8 to a rare, limited edition Ford GT X1. Just 30 examples were ever built as part of a deal with the Genaddi Design Group.

The twin-turbo 1000 horsepower V-8 was then called the Ford GT X1 TT. At present, the car is in the U.S. with 3700 miles on the odometer and is up for sale for $450,000.

"They hide in the bushes, they fly over test tracks;" the automotive paparazzi are always on the prowl, looking to grab a shot of the most secretive automotive projects. Ford has now revealed the next-generation Mustang coupe, and in this video it explains how the art of camouflage helped it keep the 2015 Ford Mustang under wraps, quite literally.

The iconic Ford Mustang , has been around for 50 years and has a huge fan following. So, it’s no surprise that the amount of excitement and curiosity was high ahead of the official reveal. Before we all get to see the car, it is essential for any car maker to keep it away from prying eyes during the development and fine-tuning phase.

Ford managed to keep us guessing for sometime before the Stang’s official launch, so what did it do to protect the car’s identity? As camouflage experts at Ford explain, they prefer to use soft vinyl instead of hard plastics that bind to the surface of the vehicle. The soft vinyl covers better and hides the contours of the body which made it rather difficult for us lot to get a peek at the lines.

As it seems, a lot of work goes into wrapping the car in vinyl, Styrofoam and plastic. During the early stages, our auto paparazzi had brought us heavily camouflaged images of the Mustang. As the launch date was nearing, the vinyls and plastics were replaced with psychedelic wraps to reveal the front fascia, and that’s when the internet became flooded with renderings of the 2015 Mustang.

With the official unveiling of the 2015 Ford Mustang , the teams are finally relieved of trying to keep it under wraps. But, this cat and mouse game between the car makers and the paparazzi continues, as we are still awaiting some special-edition models.

Looks like Gymkhana isn’t the only viral phenomena we can expect from Ford these days.

This time a year ago, Ford of Europe released its own version of Ken Block’s now famous Gymkhana race-stunt series. Only that time, the role of Block was played by his inanimate cousin, Mental Block, and the Ford Fiesta rally car used in the stunts measured about four inches long.

So with Christmas once again upon us, the Blue Oval is back at it again with the second installment of Snowkhana, appropriately titled "Snowkhana Two." This time around, the Mental Block and his trusty steed find themselves in the always treacherous jungle called "under and around the Christmas tree."

Like a true savant drifter, Block and the Fiesta navigate around a pile of presents, other toy cars, a dinosaur, and even an excavator truck. And he did it all that while trying not to get too distracted by the cameo appearances of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Darth Vader, and Miley Cyrus riding on a wrecking ball...err...a Christmas ornament.

It’s all in good fun and a reminder to all of us that the holiday season still has the power to bring out the kids in all of us.

Less than a week until the official debut at the Geneva Auto Show , Ford has pulled the covers off its latest version of the Focus . The new styling takes after its big brother the Fusion and black-sheep cousin Mustang with its Aston-Martin grille and lower front fascia. First introduced in 2011, this is the third generation ’s first refresh.

Although Ford hasn’t released all the nitty-gritty details on the car, we understand the powertrain lineup is to remain relatively unchanged except for the new 1.0-liter I-3 EcoBoost and its six-speed manual transmission – a combination exclusive to the U.S. The rest of the world makes do with an automatic with their 1.0-liter EcoBoost – a combination that also exclusive to everywhere but here. Yep, Ford is only offering the 1.0-liter with a manual transmission within the States, so rowing your own gears is a must. The remainder of the Human race must look upon with envy.

The interior looks to remain similar to the current Focus with its highly styled dash and bolstered seats. Ford has said the interior will be getting a heavy dose of new in-dash technologies like an enhanced SYNC AppLink system that allows for greater smartphone connectivity.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was unveiled to the world recently, when Ford showed the pony car to public at launch events that took place at multiple locations around the globe. Ford now plans to expand in to new territories and that includes right-hand-drive markets, like England, Australia and Japan.

The iconic Ford Mustang does have an international fan base, therefore we weren’t taken by surprised to hear that the Mustang would venture outside of the U.S.

At the unveiling, Ford showed us the standard 2015 Mustang along with the 2015 Ford Mustang GT . Like we’ve said before, the styling is simply gorgeous, and we love the way Ford designers have incorporated certain design cues from the classic Mustang into this modern reincarnation.

The gills from the original return in the form of daytime running lights, while the triple-bar taillights are now more three dimensional to the naked eye. With the basic models well outlined, folks are now curious to learn about more power-packed versions of the pony car.

Well, that wait is nearing an end, as today an insider revealed a demo promo order system on dealer-side computer software, which clearly shows a Shelby GT350. This means that though the GT350 will likely return as a dealer-direct package, as opposed to a Shelby aftermarket add-on package. Short of the name, the screen grab doesn’t reveal much else.

To date, Ford has remained mum about the whole thing, as it could be preparing for yet another big event to launch the first of the Shelby cars based on the 2015 Ford Mustang .

Gran Turismo 6 may have scored a nice coup when BMW agreed to debut the M4 Coupe in the game,, but one competing video game franchise saw it as an opportunity to call GT6’s marketing score with one of its own.

In an announcement that was as pleasant as it was surprising, Need for Speed Rivals made its own recently-launched-car debut when the 2015 Ford Mustang became available in the game.

For what it’s worth, the 2015 Mustang is car tailor-made for a game like NFS Rivals, which possibly explains why the developers wasted little time putting installing it in the game. You can drive the Mustang as either a cop or a racer, two things the all-new pony car is well-versed at. And unlike GT6, or Forza 5, for that matter, driving skills sometimes takes a backseat to all-out mayhem in Need for Speed.

So if you’re running roughshod, steering clear of law enforcement authorities, or doing the actual pursuing of racers, the addition of the 2015 Ford Mustang in Need for Speed Rivals will make playing the game that much more enjoyable.

The preview video of the muscle car already makes it look at home in the Need for Speed franchise. Imagine what you can do with it once you get your hands on the game.

Need for Speed Rivals is already on shelves for the PS4 and XBox One with the 2015 Mustang likewise available to download.
