The 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang is an excellent excuse for the blue oval to celebrate with as much tire smoke and pony play as they can commission. This video from the newly formed Ford Performance division gathers together Mustangs from all across its half-century lifespan to celebrate the milestone with balletic, choreographed shenanigans.
None of the Mustangs in the video are stock as each have significant mod work done on them. Just about every era of ‘Stang is represented here, even the much maligned Mustang II. The end result is a string of ponies that would make any Mustang fan’s heart burst.
Leading the pack is the 2015 Mustang RTR, the latest modded Mustang to bear the name of drift racer Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s aftermarket tuning brand. The “spec 2’ RTR adds custom grills, rear and chin spoiler, and side sills. An RTR-specific Magnaflow exhuast system, supercharger and cold air intake round out the mods, giving the 2015 ‘Stang the ability to squeeze 725 horsepower out of its 5.0-liter V8.
The context, however, isn’t really important as the whole tribute is pretty much muscle car pornography from start to finish. The cars themselves are lovely, the choreography is shot extremely well, and apart from a cringe-worthy line delivery from Vaughn Gittin Jr, there’s nothing but enjoyment to be derived from this.
As much fun as this video tribute to the Mustang is to watch, the unfortunate side effect is that it has us desperately longing for rear-wheel drive weather.
