Special Edition Ford Mustang confirmed for local introduction

The quintessential style of West coast America is heading to South Africa with Ford South Africa confirming the local introduction of the Ford Mustang California Special.

The California Special embodies the free-spirited ethos of the 1968 original and 100 units will be offered locally in the Fastback coupé body style.

What makes it special?

The special edition package includes unique badging and detailing, 19-inch alloy wheels and colour Shift California Special decals. Under the bonnet is Ford’s 330kW V8 petrol engine and an advanced ten-speed automatic transmission. Inside the Mustang features bespoke California Special detailing.

Unique styling features include a honeycomb front grille finished in Ebony Black that features a GT/CS badge in Race Red, as well as lower side stripes finished in black, red and grey. Incorporating GT/CS logos, the stripes run from the front to rear wings and feature a hidden California Special script that is almost invisible in low light conditions but is prominent in bright sunlight. A choice of eight exterior colours includes Atlas Blue and Cyber Orange. 

The evergreen Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang continues to lead sales charts across the world. It was the world’s best-selling sports coupé for the seventh consecutive year in 2021 and is available in 146 markets worldwide.

In South Africa the Mustang remains in a class of its own, where it captured 87 percent of the sports car segment last year. 3613 units of the current generation Mustang have hit the road in South Africa to date. The success of the standard Mustang as well as previously introduced special edition models, such as the Mustang Mach1 add to the appeal of what continues to be one of the world’s most recognisable and revered automotive nameplates.


Local pricing and further details of the Mustang California Special edition will be announced closer to its launch date later in 2022.
