The all-new Mustang is the most advanced version yet of the iconic pony car, offering more advanced driver-assist technology than any other car in its class. The sleek new design of Mustang fastback and convertible is backed up by world-class performance from a range of available engines, including a new turbocharged EcoBoost® 2.3-liter and an upgraded 5.0-liter V8 with more than 420 horsepower. In addition to state-of-the-art connectivity systems, Mustang features available track apps, launch control and more.
Ford Mustang was revealed to the world with a television advertising campaign on the evening of April 16, 1964, before being shown to the public at the New York World's Fair on April 17. The car officially went on sale that day, and Ford dealers accumulated a record 22,000 sales and orders that first day on the way to more than 418,000 sales in the first year and 1 million sales in less than two years. Over the past five decades, more than 9 million Mustangs have been sold.
"Almost 50 years ago Ford captured the world's attention by placing a 1965 Mustang Convertible atop what was then the world's tallest building, the Empire State Building in New York City," Bill Ford said. "Today's event in Dubai, home to the world's current tallest building, completes an incredible global journey for Ford and Mustang."
A team of six engineers travelled with the special Mustang from Ford's world headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., to Dubai aboard an Emirates Airlines flight. Once the car arrived in Dubai, it was transported to the base of Burj Khalifa and carefully separated into six sections that could be transported to the 112th level via the building's elevators. The team reassembled the vehicle over approximately 12 hours.
"We've taken the new Mustang to new heights of technology and refinement, so taking it literally to new heights atop the Burj Khalifa is an amazing achievement for our team," Benintende said. "There are no cranes that would reach that high, and helicopter delivery is out of the question. Making this happen is truly an example of Ford engineering expertise at work."
Ford partnered with several organizations to bring this event to life, including Dubai's Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and Emaar Properties.
"Dubai is a destination which offers a remarkable range of breath-taking experiences, so Ford's ambition for this event was a natural fit," said His Excellency Helal Saeed Almarri, Director General, Dubai Tourism. "It was a privilege to work with Ford and our partners to stage the event and to demonstrate once more that Dubai is a city which continues to push the boundaries of possibility."
