The sixth generation Ford Mustang is a pony car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. The sixth generation was presented at private Ford events on December 5, 2013 and commenced series production at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant on July 14, 2014. In departure from prior Mustang models, the sixth generation Mustang includes fully independent rear suspension on all models, as well as an optional 2.3L EcoBoost turbocharged and direct injected four cylinder engine. The new Mustang was introduced as a 2015 model year vehicle, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the Ford Mustang, which was revealed as a 1965 model year vehicle on April 17, 1964. This will also be the first Ford Mustang to be marketed and sold globally, and the first factory right hand drive Mustangs produced in addition to the left hand drive models. This is part of Ford's One Ford campaign, which also applies to the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Ford Mondeo, Escape, Ford Kuga, Edge, Ford Transit Connect, Ford Transit, as well as other models. Background Ford Mustang convertible The sixth generation of the Ford Mustang debuted on December 5, 2013 with same-day media events in Dearborn, Michigan, Los Angeles, California, New York City, New York, Barcelona, Spain, Shanghai, China, and Sydney, Australia. The 2015 Mustang marks the 50th anniversary of continuous Mustang production, which began in March 1964 in advance of the debut of the original Mustang at the 1964 New York World's Fair on April 17, 1964 in Flushing, Queens. Development of the 2015 Mustang, codenamed "S550," began in 2009 under chief engineer Dave Pericak and (from late-2009) exterior design director Joel Piaskowski, shortly after the updated 2010 model year Mustang went on sale. In December 2010, an exterior design theme proposal by Kemal Curic from Ford's Cologne, Germany design studios was selected by design management. Curic (also responsible for the 2011 Focus (2012 in the US) and the 2014 Mondeo/Fusion) relocated to Ford's design studios in Dearborn in January 2011. During mid-stage development, Curic's original exterior design proposal was eventually rejected by Ford executives, resulting in rapid design changes. After reviewing 3 different exterior theme proposals (A, B, and C) in design clinics in September 2012, the final exterior design (Theme A) was approved by Ford management, with the final design freeze occurring in December 2012, 20 months ahead of originally scheduled August 2014 production. The interior design program began in the spring of 2010, under Doyle Letson. By late 2011, a final interior proposal was settled on and was combination of Theme A & B. In June 2012, the final interior design was frozen. The first test mules in 2010 model year bodies were spotted earlier in June 2012, and the first S550 prototypes were built five months later (exterior design freeze) in May 2013. Engine Three engines are available: a standard aluminum 3.7 L "Cyclone" V6, an optional 2.3 L EcoBoost turbocharged with direct injected I4, or a 5.0 L "Coyote" V8. The 2.3 L EcoBoost engine is new to the Mustang, having debuted in the 2015 model year Lincoln MKC crossover. This four-cylinder includes improvements over earlier versions. The 2.3 Ecoboost engine also marks the return of 4-cylinder engined Mustangs, which were standard in cars produced from 1974 to 1993, as well as in the "SVO" turbocharged models from 1984 to 1986. The Shelby GT350 version uses a modified version of the Coyote engine, code-named the Voodoo, that features a 5.2 L with flat-plane crankshaft instead of the traditional crossplane. Models and Special Editions Shelby GT350 (2016-) For 2015, GT350 has been confirmed, featuring a 5.2 L Flat Plane Crank V8 engine with 526 hp (392 kW) and 429 lb·ft (582 N·m) of torque. The GT350 is more track focused than the GT500, and was bench marked against the Camaro Z28, Porsche GT3, and BMW M4. Notable features are track-focused chassis tuning, significant aero-dynamic changes to include lowering the hood around the engine, two piece Brembo brakes, MagneRide damping option, light weight Tremec six speed manual transmission, Recaro seats, and various light weighting efforts. Specifically a carbon fiber reinforced polymer radiator support that directs cooling channels for various components. Additional options, such as larger alloy wheels, navigation system, rear backup sensors, a rear backup camera, Blind Spot Monitoring, security system, remote vehicle starter system, SHAKER PRO Surround Sound Premium Sound System, premium leather seating surfaces, sunroof and HID front headlamps are available. Interior color schemes, such as Coral Red and Saddle, are available in addition to the standard Black interior color scheme. Shelby GT350R (2016-) A further enhanced and even more limited edition of the GT350 with an "R" package (GT350R) was announced by Ford at the 2015 North American International Auto show in Detroit, to be available to customers later in the year. The first GT350R with #001 sold for $1 million at Barrett Jackson Auction at Scottsdale, Arizona. A combination of changes to aerodynamics and suspension tuning to the new Shelby® GT350R Mustang leads to most race-ready road-legal Mustang ever. Significant engineering innovations result in weight savings, aero improvements to benefit on-track performance; Ford is the first major automaker to introduce carbon fiber wheels as standard equipment on Shelby GT350R Mustang. Items removed include air conditioning, the stereo system, rear seats, trunk floorboard and carpet, backup camera and emergency tire sealer and inflator. Exhaust resonators also have been removed for weight savings with the benefit of creating a sharper exhaust tone. Shelby GT350R is more than 130 pounds lighter than the Shelby GT350 Track Pack model, which has proven its durability in multiple 24-hour racetrack tests. Aside from carbon fiber wheels, larger front splitter and rear wing, Shelby GT350R features distinct design details. Exterior touches include red painted brake calipers, red pin striping at the edges of the optional over-the-top racing stripes and Shelby GT350R badging. Inside is high-contrast red stitching, Shelby GT350R badging and the D-shaped steering wheel fitted with a red center mark at the top. [Text from Wikipedia] en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mustang_(sixth_generation) This miniland-scale Lego Ford Mustang Shelby GT 350R (S550 - 2016) has been created for Flickr LUGNuts' 91st Build Challenge, - "Anger Management", - all about cars with some link to being angry. Given he won't be reading this - my Global Chief Engineer - instrumental in making this car happen, will be soon receiving one of these as his Company car - but one of his North American underlings who I am in contact with, will also be building him this Lego model in the matching yellow with black stripe package.
