First of 45 special-edition models sells at auction
7 August 2009

The first limited-edition Lee Iacocca Ford Mustang has sold at auction for $125,000 (£75,000).

Only 45 of the Mustangs will be built and they have been created as a tribute to Lee Iacocca, widely known as the “father of the Mustang”.

The 2009 1/2 Iacocca 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang gets a lightly redesigned front end, with inset headlights, and a more dramatic fastback rear. Special 20-inch Iacocca Design wheels wrapped with Goodyear Eagle tyres complete the clean look.

Inside there is a leather-wrapped steering wheel with "I" logos, Diamond Design leather seats, and Iacocca-badged aluminium sill plates.

Ford Racing provides a cold-air intake system and the Ford Racing Handling Pack adds new shocks and springs.

An optional supercharger system boosts the 4.6-litre V8’s power to 395bhp. The remaining 44 units will be sold exclusively at Galpin Ford in Southern California.

    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
