“We worked closely with EA to provide engineering data for the new Mustang, several months before we showed it to the rest world. The computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang,” says Mark Bentley of Ford.
With well beyond 9 million cars sold in its 50 years of continuous production, the Mustang has made a significant impact in pop culture, including games as it has been featured in the Need for Speed video game franchise since 2005. It has also made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and is the world’s most-liked vehicle on Facebook with more than 5.6 million fans.
The exclusive customized Mustang ‘hero car’ from the upcoming Need for Speed movie has also been playable in the game since it launched in November.
But let’s get down to brass tax—the full details:
- -You can also chase down Racers in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 as a cop car.
- -There's an in-game Ford garage as a Racer hide-out.
- -Try to obtain the three Ford driving achievements.
