The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!


The California Special design came out of a West Coast Ford dealer and was inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT coupé notchback prototype.

Just like the original, this new version of special Mustang GT has a blacked-out grille and side racing stripe.

For 2019 all Mustang GT's with the manual transmission will now feature rev matching.

The Mustang California Special has been a part of the Mustang repertoire off and on since 1968.

Ford officials liked the California Special so much that they made a decision to offer a limited number of cars of the 1968 model year. The California Special wears unique five-spoke painted machined wheels. Climbing inside, this limited-run Mustang is adorned with Miko suede seats, red stitching, and special "GT/CS" embroidering throughout.

He also planned to meet US Embassy staff, and attend a working lunch with Monica Juma, the nation's minister for foreign affairs. Tillerson, who was scheduled to visit Nigeria would return to Washington, a day ahead of his scheduled visit to the country.

The Blue Oval on Monday announced the return of the Mustang California Special, a special treatment that dates back to the original Mustang.

Mustang GT's retuned 5.0-liter V8 engine packs 460 horsepower and 420 lb. -ft. of torque and tops out at 155 miles per hour.* When that torque gets delivered to the pavement via 6-speed manual and available Performance Package, you better hold on, because that's where rev-matching gives Mustang drivers a leg - or a heel and a toe - up. And now, for the first time, the B&O Play audio system comes to Mustang with a stunning 10-channel amplifier producing 1,000 watts across 12 high-performance speakers.

Power and torque remain the same 460 hp/420 lb-ft as the regular 2018 Ford Mustang GT. The active exhaust and start quiet modes are also included.

As far as body colors are concerned, Ford adds three new such hues for 2019: Velocity Blue, Need for Green and Dark Highland Green. But the company did announce that the new model year cars will go on sale this summer.
