Ford has released the first teaser image of the 2016 Mustang California Special.

While the picture doesn't reveal much, the special edition will apparently be based on the Mustang GT which features a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces 435 bhp (324 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque.

That's not much to go on but previous California Specials have featured a sportier front fascia, rear diffuser and special alloy wheels - among other things.

The California Special will be unveiled later this month, so stay tuned for full details.
