Any true gearhead knows that when it comes to a rousing game of Monopoly, the race car is the most prestigious token. You want the race car, because everything else (aside from possibly the dog) is pretty lame. Who the hell wants to be a thimble?

For the new version of Monopoly Empire – it's basically the normal game, but rather than streets, you can buy up brands – there is no race car. Instead, board game enthusiasts will be fighting over a gold token shaped like the 2016 Ford Mustang. It all has to do with Ford's position as one of the brands that gamers can purchase within the game.

This isn't the first time an automaker has joined the long-running Hasbro game. A few years back, it was Chevrolet that was donating one of its cars for a game token – the then-new Corvette Stingray. While that was cool, we'd be feeling a little miffed if we were Chevy. When it made its debut, it was in Indiana Avenue's red tile. Ford has a more prestigious position, taking the pricier yellow spot that belongs to Ventnor Avenue.
