Ford Mustang brings California Special, rev-matching and more

Ford has a new limited-edition model for the 2019 Mustang GT that channels west coast flavor, minus the fish tacos and In-N-Out burgers. One - inspired by the 1967 Shelby GT notchback coupe prototype - came to be called the California Special. A "California Special" script badge adorns the dash on the passengers side.

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.

Ford will be offering the 2019 Mustang GT California Special this summer. The new version draws cues to the original with a blacked-out grille, racing stripe and California Special logo placed on the lid of the trunk. At the front, the auto follows the blacked-out open grille and picks up the Mustang Performance Pack 1 splitter. Unique wheels round out the CS package.

The Blue Oval on Monday announced the return of the Mustang California Special, a special treatment that dates back to the original Mustang.

Inside are Miko suede-trimmed seats with "GT/CS" embossed on them, red stitching and custom GT/CS floor mats.

The manual transmission-equipped GT version, which is good for 460 horsepower, gets automatic rev-matching - a boon for anyone who wants to take their California special on a rip down the nearest twisty road. A 1,000-watt 12-speaker B&O Play sound system will also be an option.

Mustang enthusiasts now have more opportunity to personalize their vehicle than ever before, with exciting new vintage-inspired colors including Velocity Blue, Need for Green and the iconic Bullitt model's exclusive Dark Highland Green. Though it's not available on the Mustang EcoBoost, the EcoBoost with the Performance Pack will now have an available active exhaust that can be quiet or loud depending on your mood or surroundings.
