Many Ford Mustangs have starred in movies, whether it be the 1969 Fastback in John Wick or the 1968 Shelby GT500 in The Thomas Crown Affair. But the most famous silver-screen ‘Stang is without a doubt the 1967 Shelby GT500 reimagined by designer Chip Foose to create an almost mythological muscle car named Eleanor for the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds.
For 2018 Ford designers shrunk the Mustang‘s hood even lower, pressing it about three-quarters of an inch downward while incorporating relocated hood vents. That hood shrouds the new headlight eye slits, lending the Mustang an even more menacing visage than before. And to ensure no one overlooks the car’s new styling, it comes in a new signature shade called Orange Fury.
Last year, Ford managed to sell around 140,000 Mustang models, and was the only sports coupe to sell over 100,000 units, according to data from IHS Automotive. Currently, the automaker sells the mustang in 140 markets.
Galpin Auto Sports (GAS) and Henrik Fisker announced the start of low-volume production on the 725hp coach-built super Mustang dubbed “The Rocket,” which was first unveiled as a prototypelast November during the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show. The first production model will make its world debut at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, March 14, where a select number of media will also have the opportunity to drive it.
