'Mustang is one of an exclusive group of vehicles to achieve more than half a century of continuous production, and customers' appetites for the world's best-selling sports car show no sign of waning,' said Roelant de Waard, Ford's European Marketing, Sales and Service vice president. 'Our new Mustang55 is the essence of Mustang, combining exciting performance, bold design, and comfort-enhancing technologies like our FordPass Connect on-board modem and B&O Sound System.'


Mustang earlier this year celebrated 55 years since its introduction on April 17, 1964, and in 2018 was the world's best-selling sports coupe for the fourth consecutive year. The new Ford Mustang55 5.0-litre V8 and Ford Mustang 2.3-litre EcoBoost are available to order from August.

55 years and counting

The new Mustang55 special edition – available in fastback and convertible body styles – delivers a unique twist on the Ford Mustang's sleek and athletic styling with black, dissolve-effect stripes for the low-profile bonnet and lower body sides, and a black painted roof for fastback models that complements the gloss-black 19-inch alloy wheels. Shadow Black Mustang55 models feature silver stripes, and convertibles models feature a black cloth roof.

The upper and lower front grilles are finished in two-tone gloss black and Pillar Black with the upper grille incorporating a Pillar Black pony badge. Pillar Black 5.0 front wing badges also feature an exclusive Colorado Red execution for the decimal point. An optional Pillar Black raised boot-lid spoiler completes the bespoke exterior look.

Mustang55 models equipped with Ford's six-speed manual gearbox feature a unique moulded gear-shift knob, while 10-speed automatic models feature a unique alloy metal gear-shift knob.

Standard comfort and convenience technologies include heated and cooled front seats, Ford's sophisticated SYNC 3 connectivity system now with DAB+ radio, a premium 12-speaker B&O Sound System, and FordPass Connect on-board modem for enhanced connectivity and functions including Remote Start* for automatic models, Remote Door Lock Únlock and Vehicle Locator.

Shelby-inspired style

Ford Mustang Shelby models including the Mustang Shelby GT350 and GT500 models have delivered enhanced performance and unique styling for Mustang customers for more than 50 years, and now also inspire enhancements for the Mustang 2.3-litre EcoBoost fastback and convertible models.

Door mirrors and a boot spoiler finished in Magnetic Grey, and unique dissolve-effect black bonnet stripes that hug the power bulge are among the charismatic additions, as is a Magnetic Grey California grille incorporating the classic tri-bar pony badge first seen on 1965 Mustang models. Machined-finish 19-inch alloy wheels further enhance the revised look.

Now standard for the 2.3-litre EcoBoost, Active Valve Performance Exhaust technology includes an innovative Good Neighbour Mode that can be programmed to automatically limit the exhaust's noise output at pre-programmed times of the day to avoid disturbing neighbours. The system automatically adapts alongside electronic stability control, throttle response, automatic gear-shift patterns and steering settings according to the selected Drive Mode: Normal, Sport, Track, Snow/Wet, Drag Strip and customisable My Mode.

The world's best-selling sports car

Ford will also continue to produce special edition Mustang BÚLLITT models for customers in Europe for a second year. Powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine enhanced to deliver 460PS and 529Nm of torque, Mustang Bullitt is offered in classic Dark Highland Green of Shadow Black. Únique features include 19-inch Torq Thrust-style wheels; red Brembo™ brake callipers; a faux Bullitt fuel-filler cap; a bespoke black front grille; green stitching for the standard seats and optional Recaro® sports seats; and a white cue ball gearshift knob.

Mustang remained the world's best-selling sports coupe for the fourth consecutive year in 2018, selling 113,066 cars, according to data from IHS Markit. Ford sold 5,500 Mustangs in Europe in the first half of 2019, an increase of more than 5 per cent compared with the same period last year.** More than 500,000 sixth-generation Mustangs have been sold worldwide since 2015, including more than 48,000 in Europe.
