As you may know already, the Ford Mustang celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2014 and in order to mark this event the well-known American muscle car will also be the star in the new Need for Speed movie, produced by DrewmWorks. Inspired by the long-running series of driving video games developed by Electronic Arts, the Mustang will play the role of the hero car driven by the film’s star Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”).
The one-of-the-kind Mustang was created with the help of designers at Ford and features a more aggressive look thanks to a new custom body kit that includes wider fenders, a lowered suspension as well as a new set of 22-inch wheels. Moreover, the fog lamps are new and feature high-tech LED halo lamps around the air intakes.
“We’re thrilled to have Ford play such an important part in a film adapted from one of the most popular video games of all time,” said Keith Koeppen, Ford marketing communications manager. “Mustang has an incredible history appearing in movies and ‘Need for Speed’ will be a great way to continue its hero car legacy.”
