2015 MUSTANG GT PERFORMANCE PACKAGE
Less than 2,000 50th Anniversary Mustangs were produced (1964 to be exact), but Ford fans that were looking for a little bit more could always purchase a 2015 Mustang Performance Package. The special 2015 Mustang GT Premium coupe had the look of a high-performance machine from head-to-toe, and the horsepower and torque numbers certainly did not lie.
Powered by a mean 5.0L V-8 motor, the 2015 Performance Packs (and 50th Anniversary Mustangs) could put down more than 420 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque. All of that horsepower and torque could meet the pavement thanks to the 19” wheels and Brembo Six-Piston Front Brake Calipers with Larger Rotors. Speaking of the brakes, the strut tower brace and distinct front spoiler helped direct cool air to the area, which paid major dividends at performance driving events.

The S550 GT Performance Packs had a distinct ride to them thanks to the unique suspension tune and heavy duty springs. The newly introduced independent rear suspension received an even bigger boost thanks to the GT Performance Pack’s larger rear sway bar and 3.73 rear axle. The 2015 GT Performance Pack was ideal for racing enthusiasts, but the aesthetic changes were popular for daily drivers as we
Not only did the larger brakes increase stopping power, but they also created an aggressive look when combined with the standard black wheels. Additionally, the rear spoiler delete and the gauge panel helped distinguish 2015 GT Performance Package Mustangs from other S550s, and there was palpable buzz from the moment that they were first introduced to the public.
The 2015 Mustang GT Performance packages represented all of the modern innovations of the time and all that the pony car had achieved heading into its Sixth Generation. As had been the case throughout the Ford Motor Company’s history, however, fans were eager for just a little more. In order to satisfy those special auto collectors that wish to honor both the past and present, Ford decided that its 50th Anniversary Mustang would be a very special edition of the GT Performance Package!
50TH ANNIVERSARY MUSTANG SPECS AND DETAILS
Aside from the limited edition color options, the 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang closely resembles a regular GT Performance Pack at first glance. However, the Ford Motor Company did not disappoint those wishing to celebrate the historic milestone and introduced a retro flair throughout this special edition muscle car.
Wimbledon White Mustang GT
Back in the 1960s, chrome was much more common than it is today. With that in mind, Ford added some chrome accents to the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Mustang to give off an old-school appearance in which classic auto fans know and love. The nostalgic touches included chrome highlights around the grille, side glass, and taillights. Speaking of chrome, the 2015 Mustang anniversary wheels closely resemble that of the rims on the 1964.5 pony cars with a unique Y-spoke design.
Additionally, the Limited Edition 50th Anniversary Mustang is the only S550 with rear quarter window louvers installed from the factory. The window louvers were layered glass made to echo the louvers found on the 1964.5 pony cars. Ford also resurrected the faux gas cap for the 50th anniversary edition, and it shows the GT logo with '50 Years' beneath it. The distinct badge certainly stands out among the black backdrop and lets the masses know that this is, in fact, a one-of-a-kind build!
For many Ford owners, the real excitement began as soon as they opened the door to find the custom interior that features Wimbledon White combined with stunning black leather. Keeping with the black-and-white theme, the unique inner cabin features two-toned stitching throughout, which further combines the past and the present. A quartet of extremely comfortable seats immediately catch the eyes. These two-toned seats contain special 50th Anniversary logos embroidered towards the top and on the headrests.

Along with the seats, the 50th Anniversary Mustang interior features an aluminum panel with the build number and '50 Years' logo on the dash. In addition to the vehicle identification info, the plate contains Bill Ford’s signature. When describing the limited edition pony, Ford famously stated, “If you don’t like this car, you don’t like cars.”
The vintage black and white stitching and chrome accents around the doors and windows mix perfectly well with all of the infotainment and driving modes that are standard in present day Mustangs. Similarly, the commutative decals and subtle tributes on the exterior blend nicely with the natural lines and curves of the S550.
In short, the 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang casts a bright eye on the future, while also paying the proper respect to the original pony car that started it all. Here’s to another 50 years of Mustang, and beyond!
