Making Ford vehicles available to global consumers supports thousands of jobs across the United States. The all-new 2015 Mustang is supported by U.S. suppliers in 25 states. In 2013, Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan, the car’s production home, celebrated the 1 millionth Mustang built there. The facility has approximately 3,000 employees working two shifts at full capacity to produce Mustang and Fusion. In addition, 100 jobs at the Port of Portland have now been added to support Ford exports bound for Asia Pacific and other markets.
Shelby American, a wholly owned subsidiary of Carroll Shelby International Inc. (CSBI:PK), launched the first global Shelby GT muscle car, which is based on the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT. One of the most popular cars in Shelby history the 627 HP 2015 Shelby GT was unveiled at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in Ford Motor Company’s booth. Shelby is now taking orders with delivery of cars planned for the beginning of the second quarter of 2015.
This custom project is labeled “Made in Germany”: and centers around a new widebody aerodynamic kit, made largely from carbon fiber. At the front, this starts with a new bumper, spoiler and cup wings. Meanwhile, the back is dominated by massive quad exhaust sitting inside a carbon fiber diffuser skirt.
The PDR700 also brings fresh side skirts and flared wheel arches. All the parts are designed to fit the new Corvette Stingray C7. We’ve calculated that the body kit alone would set you back €7,050, not including installation or paint.
Ford unveiled the GT, an ultra-high-performance supercar that serves as a technology showcase for top EcoBoost® performance, aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fiber construction.
The GT is one of more than 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming by 2020. It joins Focus RS, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R in the growing Ford Performance lineup.
Beginning production late next year, the GT hits the road in select global markets to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford GT race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Ford unveiled the new Shelby GT350R Mustang, the most track-ready road-going production Mustang ever built.
In 1965, Ford and Carroll Shelby developed a road-racing version of the popular Ford Mustang – the Shelby GT350 Competition model. Lighter, more powerful and with a highly developed suspension, it is one of the most iconic racing Mustangs ever produced.
Arriving later this year, the new Shelby GT350R has been designed and engineered in the same spirit, delivering never-before-seen track capability from a Mustang – thanks to innovations in aerodynamics, chassis engineering and light-weighting.
New Dodge Viper Documentary Captures Hand-built Craftsmanship and Passion in Every Dodge Viper [VIDEO]
A new 22-minute documentary, “Viper: DNA of a Supercar,” launched today by Dodge showcases how the Dodge Viper is created like no other car – with passion driving every ounce of design origin, attention to detail and meticulous handcrafting.
“The Dodge Viper is a precision-handcrafted machine expressively built to stimulate all the senses of an enthusiast’s soul,” said Tim Kuniskis, President and CEO, Dodge and SRT, FCA North America. “It’s not widely known what it takes to create this supercar, including the 140 to 160 hours to hand paint each Viper, so we produced the film to show what sets the Viper apart from everything else in its segment.”
