First revealed on April 17, 1964 at the New York World's Fair, the Ford Mustang is celebrating its 51st birthday. A new video from Ford Performance, the first in a series to mark the occasion, shows how the design team created the all-new sixth-generation 2015 Ford Mustang.

In the first video, Ford Performance explores the challenges in designing the exterior of the 2015 Ford Mustang for a modern world while being true to the original car's heritage. Ford Performance begins by describing how the original Mustang changed the automotive landscape as an affordable sporty car that evoked optimism and freedom en masse as well as how the Mustang evolved from a street car to a race car thanks to racers like Carroll Shelby.

Next, the team of Mustang-loving engineers behind the 2015 Ford Mustang shares the excitement and challenges behind designing the sixth-generation Mustang for a global market while creating a car that is undoubtedly a Mustang. The 2015 Ford Mustang is being sold in Europe for the first time ever, and early demand for the new ponycar on the Continent was high.
