The 2015 Ford Mustang will lead a cavalcade of over 160 classic Ford Mustangs is all set to do the iconic track parade on July 26, 2014 at the Silverstone Classic, considered as largest classic motor racing festival. The cavalcade is part of the Mustang Owners Club’s 50th birthday celebrations for the iconic muscle car.

Ford is set to roll out the 2015 Mustang in the United Kingdom for the first time in its 50-year heritage. Anthony Ireson, Ford Britain marketing director, remarked that the Silverstone Classic and the Mustang Owners Club 50th anniversary celebrations provide an ideal stage for introducing the 2015 Mustang.

He remarked that the new Mustang car has been designed to appeal to its traditional fans – combining key design elements evoking the classic vehicles and exceptional power and a sophisticated chassis.

The new Mustang Fastback and Convertible powered by world-class engines like the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost (310 horsepower and 320 lb/ft of torque) and a 5.0-liter V8 (435 horsepower and 400 lb/ft of torque).

The first 500 new Mustangs for Europe were made available for online reservations during the UEFA Champions League Final on May 24 and the reservation book were filled up in just 30 seconds since bookings were open.

Around 130 of the online reservations were from British Ford Mustang fans. At the Silverstone Classic, Ford will hold two Mustang Celebration Trophy races for track-prepared pre-1966 Mustangs and their touring car rivals coming from the same era.
