Ford Reminds Us of the Great Motivational Force That Was Carroll Shelby

We’re counting down the months to the launch of the new Ford Mustang, an all-new model that promises to have global appeal yet still retain the very essence of what made people like and buy the cars in the first place.

Part of that essence is down to Carroll Shelby’s contribution to Ford and the subsequent creation of many hot Mustangs, and now the company has put out a video to honor his name yet again.

It would have been nice if he had the opportunity to view the new car, soon to be the sixth-gen model, and see if it stood up to his expectations and standards of what it’s supposed to be…

Perhaps Shelby would not have approved of the four-pot turbo that is expected to be used in some models, but he definitely would not have minded the extra dash of modernity that it promises.

Nevertheless, even with Shelby no longer around, the upcoming Mustang is easily one of the most anticipated cars of the coming months – expect to begin to see increasingly revealing photos early next year, before it’s announced to be fully revealed in spring.
