In celebration of the Mustang’s 50th anniversary this year, Ford Philippines is releasing 50 units of the 5.0L Mustang V8 GT Premium edition. The sports car will be available in two new exclusive colors: Grabber Blue and Gotta Have it Green, with racing stripes. Interior appointments include Recaro sport seats. The price is P3 million, for which you will get one peso in change.
Meanwhile, Ford is publishing “Mustang Countdown,” an online video series that will feature the storied sports car. The Mustang’s conceptualization, production, and cultural significance will be highlighted in each of the videos. Already up is a video called “Where it All Started: The Mustang 1 Concept.” This video shows the debut of the first concept car to wear the pony badge, circa 1962. Also featured is “RC Movie Magic” highlighting the viral video of a pair of radio controlled Ford Mustangs. Videos to come will show Mustang in video games, competition, and custom restomods.
Ford counts more than 9.2 million Mustangs sold since 1964, and more than 3,000 appearances on film and TV, notably “Bullitt” (1968), “Gone in 60 Seconds” (1974 and 2000), “I am Legend” (2007), and Drive (2011).” Mustang will also be the star of the upcoming “Need for Speed” movie based on the video game.
