Ford Mustang GT
Since its dramatic 1964 introduction, Ford Mustang has been the icon of American performance with its bold style, brawny engine and rear-wheel-drive excitement. The legend continues in the 2005 model with an all-new platform and clean-sheet design that makes it faster, safer, more agile and better looking than ever.
Drop-top versions are also available - the Ford Mustang Convertible powered by a V6 and the powerful V8 Ford Mustang GT Convertible.
Muscular new engines infuse Ford Mustang with tire-smoking performance. The 4.6-liter all-aluminum V8 that powers the 2005 Ford Mustang GT has three-valve heads and cranks out 300 horsepower. Because it has an aluminum block, it weighs 75 pounds less than a comparable cast-iron design while delivering 40 more horsepower than the 2004 engine. That's more than 50 percent more power than the small-block 289-cubic-inch V8 found in the classic 1964 Ford Mustang.
