The Mustang GT convertible concept, which debuted at the North
American Auto Show in January of 2003, signaled a new direction for
the 2005 Mustang. After its debut, this car travelled to more than
50 auto shows around the world. The Redline Red Metallic car
features a distinct "showbar" with a rim of billet-aluminum trim
picking up where the instrument panel and console trim leave off.
This car started out with a significantly modified Ford Thunderbird
rear-wheel-drive architecture. The platform was sectioned to
achieve the proper proportion. The front-end geometry is all
original. The 20-inch wheels and 13.8-inch vented and cross-drilled
Brembo disc brakes are pushed out to the corners and anchor the
design to the road. A sharp accent line runs the length of the body
just above the rocker panel and culminates in a "C-scoop" design
behind the door cutline to create an intentional visual link with
the C-pillar design. The Mustang GT is powered by a 3.9-liter V8
engine mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Its interior is
awash in red and charcoal leather and accented with billet-aluminum
hardware. The modern interior design pays homage to another era in
Mustang history while the use of high-quality materials, precision
craftsmanship and technical innovations point to Mustangs to come.
Upon opening the door, both driver and passenger will see the Ford
logo proudly displayed on a billet-aluminum sill panels. The
interior includes perforated red leather surfaces on the seat backs
and steering wheel, as well as a billet-aluminum shifter, 4-point
racing-style seatbelts and unique instrument gauges that look like
a fine watch with its face removed. The cluster instrumentation is
unique, but features a familiar, round optical look. Rather than
using needle pointers, the gauges feature a small, gear-driven,
trolley scored with indicator lines that rides around the inside of
the bezel matching rpm and groundspeed. THIS IS A CONCEPT VEHICLE.
