Ford has released a new Need for Speed movie promo with the 2015 Mustang, as the muscle car is playing the main role in the film.
The upcoming Need for Speed movie is no longer a surprise but what comes as something new, related to this footage, is a promotional video for the 2015 Ford Mustang, as the muscle car is playing the main role in the movie. The vehicle is owned by Toby Marshall, played by Aaron Paul.
“The best movie cars combine tons of power, rear-wheel drive, great handling and the ability to be easily flung around corners. As we’ve seen hundreds of times over the years–from ‘Bullitt’ to ‘Gone in Sixty Seconds’–Mustang fits the bill perfectly”, said director Scott Waugh.
The new Ford Mustang generation is available, for the first time in history, with a four-cylinder engine. The unit in question is a 2.3 liter EcoBoost, offered for the mid-range version, with 305 HP (227 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque. The entry-level variant is getting a 300 HP (223 kW) and 365 Nm (270 lb-ft) of torque 3.7 liter V6 engine, and the top of the line a 5.0 liter V8 with 420 HP (313 kW) and 528 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque.
