2013 Ford Mustang V6

This is Steve Strope's Ford Mustang in the classic fastback bodystyle, and as you'll notice, it sports the signature colors of Martini Racing, a livery that's as legendary as any Gulf Racing-styled car.

    1380229020

    The Equus Bass 770 has gone viral, and it's not hard to see why. The retro styling of the boutique modern muscle car draws inspiration mainly from the old Ford Mustang fastback, but also the Dodge Challenger, and it's powered by a thoroughly modern supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 640 horsepower, a la Chevrolet's recently departed Corvette ZR1. It all ...

    Ford is planning some big changes for the 2015 Mustang – likely the biggest shift in its iconic pony car since it ditched its previous jelly-bean-ish shape for the retro lines of the current model. Now it's leaving that design behind as well in favor of a more dynamic figure previewed by the Evos concept. But while we've known that to be the case ...

    Report: Next Ford Mustang to drop 400 pounds

    The Ford Mustang is already the lightest of the current crop of muscle cars, at around 3,600 pounds for a GT coupe with the six-speed manual transmission. That's almost 260 pounds less than a Chevrolet Camaro SS and about 450 pounds less than a Dodge Challenger R/T, which means the Mustang has a pretty big advantage when it comes to handling, braking, ...
