The Ford Mustang is an American icon and was originally based on
the Ford Falcon. The first production Mustang rolled off the
assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan in March 1964 and was
introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April
1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product
launches in automotive history, with the original Mustang selling
over one million units in its first eighteen months alone. After
five previous generations diluting the original 'Pony car', the
sixth-generation arrived in 2013 to widespread consideration that
Ford has perhaps returned the Mustang to its glory days.
The sixth-generation Mustang was unveiled on December 5, 2013, in Dearborn, Michigan, New York, Los Angeles, California; Barcelona, Spain, Shanghai, China; and Sydney, Australia, with the internal project code name; S-550, with three engine options available: a newly developed 2.3 litre EcoBoost with 310bhp, a 3.7 litre 300bhp V6, or the 5.0 litre Coyote 435bhp V8 with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. A new independent rear suspension system was developed specifically for the new model. It also became the first factory version designed as a righthand drive export model to be sold overseas through Ford new car dealerships in righthand drive markets.
This intimidating 5.0 litre V8 Fortis Auto Design wide-body special edition was initially imported by Bill Shepherd Mustang in 2015. Part of a limited edition 50th anniversary performance pack run, produced just after the 1,964 cars that were released to pay homage to the first generation Mustangs of 1964.
Boasting retro stitching throughout, a retro look instrument
cluster surround and exclusive black leather upholstery embossed
with the Mustang 50 year logo, this example sits on 19" alloy
wheels with the unique Y-spoke design found on the 1964 model.
Chrome accents around the rear taillights and a special 50 year
plaque on the dash noting this special edition's place in history
complete the many upgrades. The model was marketed as a 2014½
model, paying tribute to the original 1964½ model.
Not satisfied with the standard Mustangs appearance, and in the true spirit of enhancing the Mustangs, Fortis Auto Design worked closely with renowned specialists to create this one-off bespoke example. Extreme Dimensions created the bespoke wide arch moulded body and Diode Dynamics provided the lighting upgrades which include interior LEDs and RGBW +A Sequential Tri-Bar DRL upgrade. KW Automotive lowered the suspension and a MagnaFlow competition exhaust was added providing ample audio to compliment the aggressive appearance. The car has hydro-dipped carbon fibre dash panels and scissor doors give the vehicle additional flair coupled with ROUSH components including; bonnet scoop and vents and front bumper boasting a Steeda Front Splitter.
Further body modifications include QuickLIFT ELITE bonnet kit and custom Avery Diamond Super Snake striping and Fortis Auto Design custom decals. Offered with a full service history including a recent service in April 2017. This truly one-off Mustang will stop traffic and harks back to how original Mustang owners would upgrade their 'pony car'. This certainly is a car for those who want to be noticed and is not for shrinking violets.
