The much loved sports car of America get even more tech and styles for 2019 as the popular Ford Mustang GT California Special now gets a revival, with the new tech features now include the rev-matching on the 5.0L models that are manual-equipped, over the top stripes, three new colors inspired by vintage, and B&O Play premium audio system that is custom-tuned.
The Ford Mustang GT California Special of 2019 is no doubt appealing as it features the fading stripe of the trademark which traces from its 5.0 side badge up to its fender scoop on rear side. The trunk lid is also adorned by the signature Ebony Black as well as Race Red script badge. At the car’s front, it adheres to the open grille, picking up the splitter which is Mustang Performance Pack 1. California Special also wears one-of-a-kind five-spoke machined wheels that are painted.
Step inside and you will discover the suede-trimmed seats that are in rich black Miko color, which have been embossed with GT/CS insignia as well as the contrast red accent stitching, as well as the custom embroidered GT/CS mats on the floor. The Signature script badging for California Special can also be seen on the dash panel on the passenger side.
The retuned 5.0L V8 engine of the Ford Mustang GT packs a 420 pound-foot of torque and 460 hp, topping out at 155 miles per hour. Once the torque was already delivered to the road through the available Performance Package and the 6-speed manual, make sure you hold on since this is where the rev-matching starts giving Mustang drivers a toe and a heel or a leg up.
The advanced rev-matching can help smooth out the shifts through predicting the shifts then instantly matching the engine rpm, which is the same with the help and toe methods that the professionals use. On the downshifts, its engine rpm can instantly kick up for smoothening out the transition in between gears.
