A coach-built Ford Mustang is to be sold in strictly limited numbers in honour of Lee Iacocca, who is widely known as the “father of the Mustang”.
The 84-year-old was president of the Ford division when the Mustang was launched.
The body of the car – called as the 2009 1/2 Iacocca 45th Anniversary Edition Ford Mustang because it is launched late in the model year – has been designed by Michael Leone and built by the legendary Gaffoglio Family Metalcrafters.
There is a lightly redesigned front end with sunken 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. Just 45 units will be available exclusively from Galpin Ford in Southern California.
