The Ford Mustang turns 50 this year. For it’s golden anniversary, they made a Special Edition model. Based off the 420-horsepower 2015 Mustang GT, this one gets a Performance Pack upgrade and lots of interior upgrades: a cashmere-stitched, leather-wrapped steering wheel, with similar details in the instrument panel, shift boot, door inserts, seats and center armrest. Choose either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission. Ford also gives you two color options: Wimbledon White or Kona Blue. Only 1964 of these 50th Anniversary Mustangs will be made.

Only a man with a massive ego, like Rick Ross level, would name a car company after himself. Apparently David Brown is that guy. He created a new luxury car brand that draws from the best of the classic 60s sport cars and remixes them into a contemporary vehicle. In their Speedback GT you see a bit of Thunderbird/Aston Martin in the front end, a bit of Jaguar from the side, & decide for yourself on the rear-end. Under the hood, there’s a supercharged V8.
