Ford is celebrating the Mustang's 51st birthday by launching a new series which examines the creation of the 2015 model.

The first clip focuses on the car's exterior design and shows how designers went about reimagining an icon.  While they started with a "clean sheet of paper," the design team gave the 2015 Mustang a number of classic styling cues including retro-inspired taillights and a "shark bite" front end.  Despite this, the car is thoroughly modern and has an aggressive design that stands on its own.

As a refresher, the 2015 Mustang can be equipped with three different engines including:

  • A 3.7-liter V6 engine with 300 bhp (223 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque
  • A 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 310 bhp (231 kW) and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque
  • A 5.0-liter V8 engine with 435 bhp (324 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque
