The Mustang GT California Special returns in 2019

Today, the 2019 California Special for Mustang GT is a visual standout, featuring a trademark fading stripe that traces from the 5.0 side badge to the rear fender scoop.

Stepping inside, the GT/CS is outfitted with rich black suede-trimmed seats, featuring embossed GT/CS insignias on the headrests, contrast red stitching and custom embroidered floor mats.

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

The California Special began as a dealer special edition in 1967, inspired by the Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype, but it was so popular that in 1968 Ford took the reins and built its own factory version. The vehicle will be fitted with a five-spoke wheel and Performance Pack 1 front splitter.

2019 will be an exciting year for Mustang as Ford prepares to offer a list of new options and features including the new California Special appearance package.

As far as engine performance is concerned, the CS gets the 5.0-liter V8 - packing up to 460 horsepower and 420 lb. -ft. of torque and topping out at 155 miles per hour - paired to a 6-speed manual transmission.

The meeting comes amid concerns of a fallout in the coalition, with political pundits saying the move by Mr. Odinga would join the meeting whose main agenda was set to be the pact with President Kenyatta.

Also new for the Mustang GT California Special and all 2019 Mustangs with the 6-speed manual transmission is an advanced rev matching system.

You might need to use some good neighbor restraint with the newly optional, 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen Play [MF6] audio system.

Power and torque remain the same 460 hp/420 lb-ft as the regular 2018 Ford Mustang GT.

2019 is going to look at lot like 1968 at Ford dealerships. Already available on GT models, a quad-tip fully variable active valve performance exhaust is trickling down to EcoBoost Mustangs for the 2019 model year.

Ford has produced special edition Mustangs on a number of occasions, most recently for the 2016-17 model years.
