Ford has revealed a special edition version of the Mustang to celebrate the model’s 55th anniversary.

Dubbed the Ford Mustang55, the new model is available in both fastback and convertible forms of the V8-powered GT, offering unique exterior styling and a high-specification interior.

On the outside, the anniversary edition gets ‘dissolve-effect’ black bonnet and side stripes. If you order your Ford Mustang55 in Shadow Black, the strips will be silver instead.

Convertible models get a black cloth roof, while coupé models get a black painted roof. There are also gloss black details, including the alloy wheels and front grille, as well as black badging. A rear spoiler is available as an optional extra.

Inside, standard equipment includes heated and cooled front seats, 12-speaker B&O sound system and Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system. There’s also a unique gear shift knob for manual cars and similarly unique drive selector for automatics.

There are no upgrades to the drivetrain, so Ford Mustang55 models use the same 5.0-litre V8 engine making 450hp. The four-cylinder engine is not available in the limited-edition specification.

Updates for the four-cylinder Mustang as well

   

A range of new styling upgrades have also been made available for the 2.3-litre EcoBoost, such as 19-inch machined alloy wheels, grey boot spoiler and door mirrors, and black bonnet stripes.

The four-cylinder model now gets a retro-inspired ‘California’ grille with the classic tri-bar pony badge first seen on 1965 model Mustangs.

It should also sound better, with the Active Valve Performance Exhaust now standard on the 2.3-litre models.

Across the board, the Mustang is now available in several new colours, called Twister Orange, Grabber Lime, Iconic Silver and Lucid Red.

Ford has also announced that the special edition Mustang Bullitt will continue for another year.

UK pricing and on-sale dates for the Ford Mustang55 have not yet been announced.
