We reported in detail when Ford Motor Co. recently unveiled the all new generation of its highly celebrated muscle car- the Ford Mustang. The manufacturer has now come up with a set of three videos that show the design development of the car’s exterior, interiors and the color and trim.
These videos feature Ford Mustang’s exterior design director Joel Piaskowski with exterior design manager Kemal Curic, interior chief designer Doyle Letson with interior design manager William Mangan and Ford’s group color and materials chief designer, Susan Lampinen.
The new Ford Mustang was unveiled by Executive Chairman Bill Ford at Ford’s special “Go Further” event to an audience of around 2,500 journalists, dealers and employees, in Barcelona, Spain.
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonate with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.”
More than 9 million Mustangs have been sold since it was first launched in 1964. The Mustang has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is one of 25 new vehicles that Ford will launch in Europe in the next five years.
“The Mustang’s formidable reputation for performance and its iconic status as a symbol of freedom and optimism precedes it even in those parts of the world where the car has never been sold,” said Stephen Odell, Ford executive vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa. “The new Mustang epitomises Ford’s aggressive product acceleration; technologically advanced and forward-looking, but without forgetting the heritage that has inspired Ford customers for generations.”
“The new Mustang is one of the most hotly anticipated cars ever, we are very excited to now give drivers in Europe the opportunity to experience the real thing,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe.
