The 2008 Mustang continues the retro body style with the great performance expected with the Mustang name. This year the Mustang offers many special packages ranging from the V6 Pony Package to the Shelby GT500 KR. The V6 Pony Package offers the 210 hp SOHC engine coupled with the suspension of the GT models, giving this pony better response then the Deluxe or Premium V6 Mustangs. Another V6 package that Ford is offering for the Mustang this year is the Warrior in Pink package, which proceeds go to Komen for the Cure, a breast cancer foundation.
Keeping with the muscle car tradition of the Mustang for is also offering a Bullitt, Shelby GT500, Shelby GT500 KR and possibly another run of the Boss. The Bullitt Mustang was first offered in 2001 and is making a return with the retro body style and this could be the last production run of this collector’s car. Keeping with the spirit of Steve McQueen the Bullitt will be offered in Dark Highland Green and Black exterior paint and the 4.6L V8 motor found in the GT but tweaked to get better performance by reducing the rotating mass and adding 3.73 gears in the rear. For a raw power all out performance Mustang look to the GT500 and GT500 KR (King of the Road), both offer over 500hp in a 5.4L supercharged V8 being the fastest production Mustang ever! This Mustang is offered in a limited edition and is sure to draw plenty of attention, especially with it being the star in the return of the Knight Rider TV series as KITT.
Other new options this year on the Mustang are ambient lighting and the Shaker 1000 audio system. The ambient lighting is offered for both GT and V6 Premium Mustangs and lights the footwells and cupholders in seven different colors that can be controlled by a switch on the dash. The Shaker 1000 audio system is a 1,000 watt system consisting of 10 speakers including two 500 watt subs located in the trunk. This audio system also includes an in-dash 6-disc CD changer as well as mp3 capabilities. The 2008 Mustang comes with plenty of options to customize your Mustang from the factory, but for all your other Mustang up-grades and customizing needs look to American Muscle.
