Peggiorata tantissimo secondo me esteticamente, in America perde il V6 3.7 aspirato, per guadagnare il 4 cilindri 2.3 litri Ecoboost.
Il top di gamma resta sempre il V8 5.0 Coyote per fortuna che è stato aggiornato alla doppia iniezione (diretta ed indiretta), mentre anche la trasmissione perde il 6 marce automatico ZF per guadagnare il 10 Marce automatico sviluppato da Ford e GM.

Il cambio manuale, il getrag 6 marce, ora è accoppiato ad una nuova frizione bi-disco ed ad un nuovo volano bimassa.

Debuttano nuovi sistemi di sicurezza attiva e migliorano le finiture all'interno.

Press Release "California Special 2022":


  • Ford introduces new Mustang California Special, channelling the spirit of iconic 1968 original with unique design details including “colour shift” decals
  • Available exclusively in 450 PS V8 convertible specification, California Special is built for top-down fun with standard features including heated and cooled front seats
  • Making its European debut, new model expands Mustang family that includes all-electric Mustang Mach-E and Mustang Mach-E GT, Mustang GT and Mustang Mach 1

The quintessential style of west coast America has crossed the Atlantic as the Ford Mustang California Special arrives in Europe for the first time.

Embodying the free-spirited ethos of the 1968 original, the new California Special is offered exclusively in convertible body style with a folding soft-top for classic looks and open-air thrills. A special-edition design package with unique badging, detailing, 19-inch alloy wheels and special “colour shift” California Special decals delivers distinctive style, and Ford’s charismatic 450 PS V8 petrol engine provides the power for effortless cruising.

Inside, the Mustang California Special is designed to help liberate all the fun of the open road whatever the weather, with bespoke California Special detailing adding exclusive appeal. Standard comfort technologies include heated and cooled front seats, a 12-inch customisable instrument cluster, and advanced SYNC 3 connectivity that enables drivers to call up their favourite road trip soundtrack or find directions to the nearest beach using just their voice.

A new video released today by Ford marks the Mustang California Special’s arrival in Europe by celebrating the spirit of Mustang and demonstrating that California is a state of mind to be enjoyed wherever you are.

“The California Special is a huge part of the Mustang’s legacy in America and it symbolises so much of what Mustang stands for: The joy of driving and the freedom of the open road. Those ideals resonate just as strongly with driving enthusiasts in Europe, so it’s about time customers here got to experience the unique California Special blend of style, performance and driving fun,” said Matthias Tonn, Mustang chief programme engineer, Ford of Europe.


Classic design reinvented

When the now iconic Ford Mustang first hit the streets in 1964, owners’ clubs sprang up across America, with many regional dealers creating their own personalised designs. One – inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype – came to be called the California Special.

That original version featured a blacked-out grille, fog lights and a side racing stripes that ended ahead of new rear side air scoops, as well as a Shelby-inspired spoiler. Impressed, Ford put a limited number of California Special cars into production for 1968.

The newest interpretation – available only as a folding soft-top convertible in homage to the famously Mediterranean-like climate of “the Golden State” – reflects the original with a honeycomb front grille finished in Ebony Black and featuring a GT/CS badge in Race Red, as well as lower side stripes finished in black, red and grey. Incorporating GT/CS logos, the stripes run from the front to rear wings and feature a hidden “California Special” script that is almost invisible in low light conditions but becomes much more prominent in stronger sunlight.

Like the original, aerodynamic enhancements hint at V8 performance, with a larger front splitter and optional rear side air scoops. At the rear, a California Special faux filler cap sits above quad tailpipes. Unique five-spoke alloy wheels add to the exclusivity. Front 19 x 9-inch and rear 19 x 9.5-inch wheels are finished in Carbonised Grey to complement the front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. Under the bonnet, a strut tower brace features a California Special badge.

Nine exterior colours include signature Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange, contrasting with the black roof that folds to transform the coupe profile into a sleek convertible in eight seconds.

Further unique design touches and comfort features inside the Mustang California Special highlight its special-edition status. Standard heated and cooled front seats help occupants stay comfortable with the roof down in summer or winter. The leather seats and door inserts are part-finished in grey Miko® suede – an ecological, synthetic material made from recycled polyester – with red stitching. Seats and floor mats are embossed with the GT/CS logo, and the instrument panel is finished in Carbon Hex aluminium with a unique Mustang California Special badge.

Press Release Mustang EUDM :



Unmistakably Mustang
Sleeker, faster and more technologically-advanced, the new Ford Mustang for Europe delivers athletic styling, sophisticated engine and suspension upgrades and advanced driver assistance features. Ford has sold almost 30,000 Mustangs in Europe since the iconic sports car first went on sale across the region for the first time in more than 50 years, in early 2015.

The instantly-recognisable, powerful Mustang profile now features a lower bonnet profile and more aggressive face. Dramatic rear-end design is enhanced with a re-modelled bumper and diffuser element.

Mustang’s exhilarating performance and a fun-to-drive experience are enhanced with a further-developed Ford 5.0-litre V8 engine, delivering an anticipated 450 PS. Both the 5.0-litre V8 and 290 PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost are available with an advanced new 10-speed automatic transmission that uses real-time adaptive shift-scheduling to offer improved fuel efficiency* and acceleration.

“Typically, when you shift gears, you give up time,” said Matthias Tonn, Mustang chief programme engineer, Ford of Europe. “The Mustang’s new 10-speed transmission enables the engine to deliver peak power and torque while up-shifting, for faster acceleration and seamless performance. We expect the result to be our fastest accelerating Ford Mustang yet.”

A new optional MagneRide Damping System can deliver a lightning-quick response to changing road conditions, and two new selectable Drive Modes – Drag Strip Mode and customisable My Mode – join the Normal, Sport, Track and Snow/Wet Modes. Active Valve Performance Exhaust technology includes an innovative Good Neighbour Mode, which can automatically limit the exhaust’s noise output to avoid disturbing neighbours. With Drag Strip mode enabled, Ford expects the new Mustang 5.0-litre V8 to be the fastest accelerating ever, with anticipated 0‑60 mph (0‑97 km/h) acceleration in less than 4 seconds, a time that was once the preserve of the most exotic supercars.

New Mustang driver assistance technologies include Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Adaptive Cruise Control, Distance Alert, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Aid. Also available is a customisable, all-digital, 12-inch LCD instrument cluster, while Ford’s SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system – compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto™ – can be controlled by natural voice commands and using pinch and swipe gestures on the central 8-inch touch screen.

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_New-Mustang-18-2.jpgottima soluzione per chiarire le modifiche fatte con il facelift. Molto americano e molto rispetto per i clienti. non come da noi dove cambi una lampadina e sbraitano con "modello tutto nuovo". Sarebbe da suggerire lo stesso modo di procedere ad Audi e compagni di merenda. A parte OT sempre affascinante sta mustang.

Io non rappresento l'utente medio eh, ma mi sembrano quelli di una brutta citycar.. 

Ovvio che sono pareri, comunque dal vero la plancia è piuttosto importante e si, americana, ma non direi da citycar..alta, imponente, molto orizzontale, sedili profondi, tunnel dinosaurico, portierone spesse e pesanti...poi vero che soffre alcune cadute di stile sulle plastiche, ma per quello che costa!
