The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

The Ford Mustang GT California Special is back this summer!

The new CS will feature the trademark fading racing stripe, a blacked-out open grille, five-spoke machine wheels, the splitter from the current Mustang Performance Pack 1 and black and red badges. It wore a Shelby-inspired spoiler, custom tail lamps and twist-lock hood fasteners.

The Mustang California Special has been a part of the Mustang repertoire off and on since 1968. Outside, the Blue Oval is offering new vintage-inspired paint colors including Need for Green, Velocity Blue and the gorgeous Dark Highland Green which we saw on the Bullitt Mustang. This means there's a faded GT/CS stripe along the door; only in the middle of the door this time. The front of the vehicle wears the standard splitter from the 2018 Mustang GT Performance Pack 1. Signature California Special script badging appears on the passenger-side dash panel.

The manual transmission-equipped GT version, which is good for 460 horsepower, gets automatic rev-matching - a boon for anyone who wants to take their California special on a rip down the nearest twisty road. On downshifts, the engine rpm instantly kicks up to smooth out the transition between gears.

Ford is also leveraging its new partnership with B&O Play on the 2019 Mustang. Though it's not available on the Mustang EcoBoost, the EcoBoost with the Performance Pack will now have an available active exhaust that can be quiet or loud depending on your mood or surroundings.

Despite just being refreshed for 2018, Ford is bringing several changes to the 2019 Mustang. This class-exclusive quad-tip exhaust system can be controlled by the drive mode system or via personalized MyMode settings through the 12-inch all-digital LCD instrument panel, as well as through the standard 4.2-inch cluster.

"These intense new colors trace back to Mustang's classic colors of the late 1960s and early 1970s", said Holter.

The 2019 Ford Mustang - including Ford's brand-new addition to the GT/CS lineage - goes on sale this summer.
