Ford Mustang California Special Gets Updates Inside and Out

Ford-Mustang-California-Special-gear-patrol-slide-1

The special edition pony vehicle going on sale this summer is a tribute to the first California Special, based off a 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype.

After the Mustang Bullitt, it's time for another Ford Mustang special edition, one that adopts a more laidback attitude - theoretically.

The 2019 Ford Mustang - including Ford's brand-new addition to the GT/CS lineage - goes on sale this summer. 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. "This signature design takes its cues from the original California Special, while enhancing the personality of today's Mustang".

The California Special includes the Mustang's 5.0-liter V-8 mated to a six-speed manual transmission and will get 460 hp and 420 pound-feet of torque.

Advanced rev-matching helps smooth out shifts by predicting shifts and then quickly matching engine rpm - similar to the heel-and-toe methods the pros use.

Like Ford Mustang, Bang & Olufsen is an innovator in both iconic design and heart-racing performance across its line of audio products.

Also on the tech side is the B&O Play 1,000-watt sound system with 12 speakers and a 10-channel amplifier. This option is not offered on the EcoBoost engine, but that engine will now offer an optional active exhaust system for 2019.

Despite just being refreshed for 2018, Ford is bringing several changes to the 2019 Mustang.

As far as body colors are concerned, Ford adds three new such hues for 2019: Velocity Blue, Need for Green and Dark Highland Green.

Ford did not release pricing information for the 2019 California Special.

And for Mustang fans, the party doesn't end here as Ford will be introducing a new Shelby GT500 early next year.
