Information About the Ford Mustang
Carrying forth the Mustang name and branding into its sixth generation, Ford launched the current Mustang - or the Mustang S550 to give it its full title - to mark its 50th year in production in 2015, following six years in development by their chief engineer Dave Pericak.
You will be left in no doubt when you take to the wheel that you are driving and witnessing the sheer force of the most up to date American muscle car around. Weighing in at 1578 kg, with a wheelbase of 107.1 inches, there is superb handling and traction to be had when this hits the tarmac.
Whilst there are three engine options available for the Mustang S550, the one we have available to book for driving experiences on TrackDays is on the highest powered of them all, a roaring 5 litre V8 engine, bumping out 300 bhp. You’ll zip from 0 - 60 mph in a scorching 5.2 seconds, and can expect to achieve top speeds of 143 mph.
Cool Facts About the Ford Mustang
As this was the performance car that Ford were launching at the time of Mustang’s 50th anniversary of production, they launched a special model of the Mustang S550 - the Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition - to mark the occasion.
This included a choice of two special edition colours from its launch year in 1964 (Wimbledon White and Kona Blue) and two tone cashmere and black leather upholstery, and was unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in 2014.
Furthermore, Ford did something else incredible as part of the celebrations, when they cut a convertible version of the Mustang into small sections, before reassembling it on the 86th floor - otherwise known as the observation deck - of the Empire State Building in New York.
Terms and Conditions
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
