Video: Ford brings back the legend that is the Mustang 5.0


Judging by the blatant self-promotion in this video, we’re pretty sure that Ford is quite proud of the way the all-new Ford Mustang 5.0 GT turned out. Don’t get us wrong, we’re totally smitten with the car too and we’ve had one too many dreams of taking the car out on the road for a little joy ride.

Ford likewise made no bones about this commercial, bringing out everything you needed to know about the 5.0 GT. The list is complete with all the tech specs, including the 412 horsepower engine and engineering marvels done on the car. The slick editing also gave it a little more bite.

Check it out for yourself and understand the importance behind the ’5.0’ title. If you don’t know the legacy and history behind it, then you better brush yourself up on a little Ford history. The ’5.0’ is synonymous to ’Mustang’ and vice versa.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Here comes the Ford Mustang ! For me, this one is truly a legend. It’s one of the best and the best types of cars in the world. Now that they released a 5.0 version of it, I bet this one can literally burn some gasses.

This engine is 4,951 cc ... so actually This 5-O DOES round up to 5.0 liters.

Same with the challenger body, I wonder if they changed the rules on body style? Still not going to watch a nascar race...
