Ford Mustang California Special adds a little more go to its show

The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

This year, however, on top of the signature California Special side stripe and rear fender vent, the muscle auto gets a B&O Play 12-channel speaker system customized to the acoustics of the car's interior and a transmission equipped with rev-matching technology.

Like the original, it features a signature side stripe and blacked out grille, but also gets a set of unique black five-spoke wheels, an aggressive front splitter, red-stitched suede seats and a California Special logos in the cabin and on the trunk lid.

Ford says the California Special Mustang will be available in a variety of vibrant-looking paint jobs including, crucially, the same Dark Highland Green that comes on the Bullitt.

For 2019 all Mustang GT's with the manual transmission will now feature rev matching.

"Few things are more satisfying than dropping the top on a California Special and taking a drive down the majestic Pacific Coast Highway", Mark Conforzi, Ford designer, said in a statement.

He was one of the best players on the pitch, so I am happy that we have him in the team, and he needs to continue in this way". The German avoided being sent off by Craig Pawson and Mourinho praised the referee for his decision.

The 2019 Ford Mustang California Special pulls some of the aesthetic DNA from the original 1968 vehicle without managing to look hokey, no mean feat these days.

To complement the visual styling, the 5-liter V8 making 460 hp and 420 lb-ft connects to a six-speed manual gearbox with Rev Matching tech. On downshifts, the engine rpm instantly kicks up to smooth out the transition between gears. Buyers will have the choice to add a new 1,000 watt, 12-speaker B&O system to the Mustang.

Despite just being refreshed for 2018, Ford is bringing several changes to the 2019 Mustang. What took everyone by surprise was its driver-controlled, fully active exhaust mode and quiet start mode, also known as good neighbor mode.

Ford is also leveraging its new partnership with B&O Play on the 2019 Mustang.
