The recent unveiling of the new 2013 Ford Mustang means a lot of things to a lot of people. But one of the most important, at least for those that aren’t satisfied with a standard version of the muscle car, is the introduction of some of Ford’s special edition packages for the Mustang.

One such is the California Special package, which has been one of the favorite trims for Mustang lovers everywhere. The full breadth of details surrounding the 2013 Mustang California Special have yet to be announced, but it appears that it will carry a number of unique additions similar to what Ford did with the 2012 version.

Among the noticeable modifications given to the 2013 Mustang California Special will include a unique front grille, side scoops, a new pedestal rear wing, a new rear diffuser, special black decals on the hood and side of the car, and just like the 2012 model, a special interior trim.

As far as performance modifications go, the 2012 Mustang California Special package kept the 412-horsepower, 5.0-liter V6 engine pf the standard model. For the 2013 model, we expect Ford to do the same, which means that the 2013 Mustang California Special will carry the same 420-horsepower, 5.0-liter V6 engine that the 2013 Mustang GT has.

Whatever the case may be, the 2013 Ford Mustang California Special package is fixing to be a great alternative choice for those that want something extra for their 2013 Mustang.

UPDATE 01/12/11: To be honest, we don’t understand why Ford just wouldn’t come out with an extensive batch of photos for the 2013 Mustang California Special. But hey, we’ll take any new photos any way we can get them, even if it’s in batches of three. Check out the new photos of the Mustang California Special in the gallery provided!

ok, not everyone is a mustang follower, or engineer. I am neither. but there is no 5.0 liter v6 mustang (making this a typo or maybe an undercover chevrolet salesman) and there isn’t going to be. The mustang gt (AND gt california special) has had a v8 since it was born, that’s what makes it a gt. 420hp in a v8 (which this has!!) will rock the road harder than ANYTHING in this price range and as far as road-humping you won’t significantly womp on this until you get a 911...even then, not by too much. I wouldn’t be so bothered that i felt like making an acct just to leave this comment if this wasn’t the first article to come up on google if you type "2013 ford mustang gt california special".

I like the curve on the hood, it looks so muscular and the white paint gives life to the whole body work.

I must admit that the standard version of their models is very satisfying and it has a nice concept ever. This is more something to do with the past models of Ford.

I do admire its exclusivity looks. It deals with great special package and I must say that the engine output is very satisfying on this ford Mustang.

Grandest mustang I assure you. This Mustang is known for decades and it never fails to give us the trends and needs of people today. Perfect for lovers while driving into streets or maybe out of town. The color pale white with black roofing looks good in the eye.

This Mustang is oozing with exquisite sophisticated looks, specially by looking on its hood, bumper and roof. All in one package as I might say. Moreover, the engine specification of it is quite good enough for it.

Nice photos on the gallery, but I am hoping for some interior photos of this 2013 Ford Mustang California Special. Hoping for them to put it here. Anyway, I am impressed on its engine performance.

I enjoyed looking at this gallery. I do admire its exclusivity. This model really looks awesome with the special package on it and I must say that the engine output is very satisfying. I think it could offer more models as year goes by.

I love the roof of this car! Oozing with great looks! Moreover, the exterior looks of this car is what made it look more luxurious and classy. That gallery is amazing as well.

Thanks for that gallery. I enjoyed looking at it. Anyway, though this is just a muscle car, I still find its engine not that impressive. Don’t you think it is better with a V8 or a V10, so this could rock the roads.

This Mustang looks sophisticated on its exterior design with white body paint. The wheels are perfect for this one. I do agree with them that this Mustang could be better if they have used a V8 or V10 engine.

It would be better if they use V8 or V10 engine on this Mustang. Anyway, there is really no doubt if it the favorite trims for Mustang because it truly looks great every time they modified this vehicle.

It still quite good for the fact that its output is 420 horsepower, which as yet could give a nice speed performance on this Mustang vehicle. Moreover, just like them, I also admire its exclusivity!

V6 engine for a Mustang vehicle? Well, I think it is not good on it, and it is really the first time that I encounter a muscled car having only that weak engine. Anyway, I think they should truly boost it more.

It looks so rich and classy at its abstract design, and that is its different from the other Mustang cars. Anyway, it really looks awesome with its special package, and I must say that its engine output is very satisfying!

The Mustang vehicle is not only trendy today but also with the next year which is great! smiley Anyway, I love the special package that this Mustang California can offer, especially on its engine.

The packaged that this Mustang California vehicle can offer is absolutely awesome for it. However, I still find out that its competitor can offer more powerful engine, especially Chevrolet.

Mustang vehicles are really so awesome, and even though they also look outdated with their platform, they are still looking very fabulous! Well, aside from their looks, I as yet admired the powerful engine that they always used to it.
