LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang

2013 Ford Mustang

The 2013 Ford Mustang has made its official debut at the 2011 Los Angeles International Auto Show. We have come to expect the unexpected with all things Mustang in the past contemporary generations, so seeing the next phase of the legendary pony car, simply put, keeps the passion for this automobile on fire.  The 2013 Mustang receives some exterior touches to exude a more aggressive grille & front fascia, fantastic LED lighting, and several different “nice to have” features that make the Mustang the much more appealing to a wider audience.

What’s more, the 2013 Mustang offers up some of these nifty features without losing any of its core panache and attractive sportiness.  SelectShift automatic transmissions, LED bar lighting, a 4.2″ LCD interactive display, braking assist on hills for manual transmissions…just scratch the surface of the awesomeness that is the next Ford Mustang.

LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500

2013 Shelby GT500

After seeing how much attention went into the 2013 Ford Mustang for the masses, we knew that the 2013 Shelby GT500 would have an even more impressive showing on the docket in Los Angeles today.  The 2013 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be propelled by an all-aluminum 5.8-liter (351 c.i. anyone?) supercharged V8, rolling along with 650hp and 600 lb-ft of twisting force.  Additionally, Ford and the SVT team with Shelby’s crew left no stone unturned with updates and improvements to the entire powertrain, braking systems, gearing, and suspension tuning.

If that’s not enough, the new Shelby GT500 also gets a redesigned front grille, providing additional downforce at speed, an menacing splitter, roaring exhaust, and lots more fine touches any Mustang enthusiast will appreciate.

So what are you waiting for?  Get going and check out all the fine tuning Ford’s done to the next Mustang Shelby GT500!

LA Auto Show: 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302

2013 Boss 302

It’s no secret any longer…the 2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302 is back and is here to stay.  The updated 2013 Boss 302 builds upon the inaugural success of the 1970s legend’s rebirth in the 2012 model year.  How, you say?  Insane graphics, new paint hues, a rear seat delete, and so many more tweaks that make this car significantly resemble its namesake from the muscle car’s pinnacle era.

We had the first-hand chance to rip up the track in a 2012 Boss 302, and it was quite possibly the best performing, and yet, most refined Mustang to date.  It’s crazy to imagine just what the Ford team could possibly do to make such a great thing…even greater.

There’s so much more in store than we can lead in upon within the confines of a simple introduction, so you’d better check all the mess out in the official PR from Ford!

Ford left Mustang fans worldwide hanging yesterday with a delay in the 2010 Mustang teaser image release, but we were able to grab hold of the new pony car’s latest sexy shot and make sure you got your eyes on this one.  After seeing a limited amount of exterior photos (the hood and front fender), we finally get our sights set on the rear of the 2010 Mustang. From this photograph’s perspective, we can see the updated rear end, the new ducktail spoiler, and the smoothed taillight bezel.

Stay tuned, as we’ll bring you some of the hottest official images available and quite possibly, a behind-the-scenes look from the Show.
