50th Anniversary Mustang - Now in Kona Blue
Ford shows off under the Brooklyn Bridge
The covers of the Kona Blue sprayed version of the new 2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year limited edition were just lifted off by Ford CEO Mark Fields and friends under the majestic towers of the Brooklyn Bridge (OK, not so much, it's the kitschy mini version here in Las Vegas).
The unveiling of the 50th Anniversary Mustang here in Vegas was another of a multitude of events put on by Ford this week to celebrate the milestone, this one in front of an appreciative crowd of Mustang lovers who have come from as far away as France and Australia to help celebrate America's iconic pony car.
"The Mustang has become a part of our culture," Fields said, "and this car is a present to our fans around the world." He rattled off a few facts to back it up: 9 million Mustangs built to date, 3000 movie appearances and 6 million Facebook fans - just for the Mustang page. Fields also emphasized that the new Mustang is a global car that will be sold the world over.
While he was at it, Fields pointed out the unique features of the 50th Anniversary Mustang like the louvered glass rear windows and special badging. He was later joined on stage by Mustang and Ford dignitaries including Henry Ford III, drifting ace Vaughn Gittin Jr. and others.
So now for the all important question: Wimbledon White or Kona Blue?
