Spy Shots: Ford's new Mustang hybrid

Ford already has hybrid versions of the Escape/Mariner and a Fusion/Milan coming late this year. Now there is this Mustang hybrid. Actually, there are no parts from the current Mustang in this vehicle, although it is based on Ford parts. Long-time Ford tuning specialist Roush Engineering has developed this diesel-equine hybrid for Kurt Systems. The vehicle is built up from a F-150 frame and suspension components and a Volvo 2.4L five cylinder diesel engine. The 1hp quadra-ped is actually not used for propulsion. The whole vehicle is actually used to train horses. Now, if Ford would just build a real Mustang hybrid we'd be off and running.
