2016 Ford Mustang Le Mans 50th Anniversary Edition
Июнь 10, 2016. The sixth-generation Ford Mustang was unveiled in December 2013 and went on sale for the 2015 model year. The redesigned pony car is a significant departure from its predecessor, being the first to feature an independent rear suspension. The new Mustang is also the first to be marketed and sold globally, and the first to receive a right-hand drive version from the factory. Also, it’s the first pony since the third-generation car to feature a turbocharged, four-cylinder engine.
It’s been two years since the new muscle car arrived in dealerships and the sixth-gen Mustang has already spawned several special-edition models, as well as high-performance versions wearing Shelby, Saleen, and Roush badges. For 2016, Ford is releasing yet another limited-edition model, this time around for the French market only. Dubbed 50th Anniversary, it is limited to only 50 units, features a special exterior color, and pays tribute to Ford’s legendary 1-2-3 win at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 50th Anniversary Mustang arrives just ahead of this year’s endurance race and is part of a series that also includes the Fiesta ST, Focus ST, and the bonkers Focus RS.
The special-edition coupe is based on the range-topping Mustang GT and we will have a closer look at its features below.
