As we are about to celebrate Independence Day in the United States, we can be thankful that we have had the 2015 Mustang for quite a while. As it goes on sale for the first time in Europe, Ford has released a series of documentary-style videos highlighting its features for a new audience.
â€œThe new Ford Mustang will be wickedly fast off the line and throw you back in your seat with a thrilling engine soundtrack,â€ Hermann Salenbauch, Mustang vehicle line director, said when its performance specs were released. â€œBut Mustang isnâ€™t just fast in a straight line. The ride and handling will be a revelation for European drivers.â€
Obviously, the independent rear suspension is a big selling point across the pond, but the videos do highlight many of the carâ€™s other features, including the quick-opening convertible top, as youâ€™ll see in the first video set in Franceâ€¦
Our favorite part of the series has to be listening to Raj Nair, Ford Group Vice President, Global Product Development and Chief Technical Officer, talk about the new Mustang as it slides around a Belgian test trackâ€¦
In a Scottish setting, Fordâ€™s vice president of Design, Moray Callum, details the finer points of 2015 Mustang stylingâ€¦
And finally, Jim Farley, Ford of Europeâ€™s president and CEO, gets nostalgic about the Mustang experiences that set him on his path in lifeâ€¦
Sure, we already know about the 2015 Mustang in the states, but watching these videos does make us flash back to the anticipation of the carâ€™s release. It was an exciting time, and it makes us look forward to the next new Mustang release.
