DreamWorks Studios is turning the popular EA video game Need for Speed into a film and Ford was chosen as the film’s exclusive partner. A one of a kind Ford Mustang Hero was unveiled for the film at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles.
The custom Mustang is a key character in the movie, becoming a part of the story. It features a custom wide body, 22-inch alloy wheels and larger air intakes to feed the supercharged V8.
Need for Speed brings back the car films of the 60s and 70s and follows the cross-country journey of the heroes. What begins as a journey for revenge becomes a journey for redemption. The popular video game has sold more than 140 million games.
The movie stars Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Dominic Cooper (Captain America), Imogen Poots (Fright Night) and Michael Keaton (Batman).
By appearing in this movie, the Ford Mustang will have nearly 3,000 appearances in feature films and TV shows. What better way to celebrate 50 years of the Mustang?
