Ford’s Mustang GT Goes for Hot Laps at MMC

Courtesy of Hot Rod: The release of a new Mustang is cause for enthusiasts to flock to Ford dealerships. Team Mustang has done it again, this time with the all-new Performance Pack Level 2, which is guaranteed to excite the Mustang faithful.

Performance Pack Level 2 was born from Ford’s desire to fill its stable with exciting pony packages that meet the rigorous demands of performance, personalization, technology, and at the same time, hitting important price points. There is a full palate of Mustang models- including the base EcoBoost Fastback, Premium package with every imaginable comfort and convenience option. There are topless versions, too, and don’t forget the ultra-high-performance Shelby GT350 and GT350R.
