All show without any extra go.

Ford is marking the 55th anniversary of the Mustang with a special edition model exclusively for the European market. The Mustang55 is based on the Mustang GT with a 5.0-liter V8 engine and features visual enhancements including hood and side-stripes, special badging, and optional rear spoiler. The coupe models will come with roofs painted in black, complementing the gloss-black 19-inch wheels and black grilles in the front bumper. Speaking of the grilles, the upper one incorporates a new Pillar Black pony badge.

Interior upgrades include carbon-fiber dashboard trim and leather-wrapped center console and knee bolster with grey stitching, also seen in the floor mats. If you order the Mustang55 with a six-speed manual gearbox, Ford will install a unique molded gear-shift knob, and if you go for the 10-speed auto you’ll get a unique alloy metal gear-shift knob. The seats and door trims on all Mustang55 models are finished in Alcantara. The special series will be available as both a coupe (that Ford calls fastback) and a convertible.

In addition, European customers can also opt for a Mustang with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that’s not part of the celebration series. However, it also gets improvements such as door mirrors and boor spoiler inspired by the Mustang Shelby models, as well as hood stripes a new radiator grille. More importantly, the Active Valve Performance Exhaust system is now part of the standard equipment for the model, automatically limiting the exhaust’s noise output at pre-programmed times of the day to avoid disturbing neighbors.

Ford says it will continue to offer the Mustang Bullitt to European customers for a second consecutive year, which will be available alongside the improved 2.3-liter model and the new Mustang55. Through the first six months of 2019, the Blue Oval has delivered more than 5,500 Mustangs on the Old Continent, representing an increase of more than five percent.
