New 2014 GT Premium Convertible

So after a long wait of over two months I am the happy owner of a Race Red Premium GT Convertible. The car is was a Ford executive vehicle that a friend ordered as his company car, and I got the car when it was time for his car change.

It is my first convertible and has the premium package, the electronics package with the nav screen, and the brick red interior.

I love the 5.0, its amazing how fast it can go, definitely a lot faster than both my 4.6 Mustangs.

Here are some pics after a thorough wash and quick wax.

Kona,

Welcome! That's a great find and a gorgeous car! I'm not entirely sure that I've seen such a clean Vert on the threads recently. What's first on your mod list?

Thanks a lot. I spent pretty much the entire evening cleaning up the car...

As for mods, not planning anything major, will probably change the exhaust for a Borla to get something little more throaty. The stock exhaust is very quiet. I´m also considering adding matte black rocker stripes and wheels in the future.

I just noticed I posted the thread in the wrong section, should be the "Talk" section and not the Tech section.

sorry

No Sweat-I'm sure it's going to get moved shortly. I know exactly how you mean on the interior volume and it's just not right! Be sure to take a look at our AxleBack Exhaust section along with our Decals/Stripes/Rocker section as we have many different styles available.

-Let me know if you're to have any questions at all in the meantime or feel free to shoot me a PM!

Nice looking car. I recommend the BBK LTH and FM American Thunder axle-backs, with the Bama tune. I love mine in Hawaii. Not because it is sunny all of the time but because there are so many rentals that everyone assumes every convertible is a V-6. I blacked all of my emblems to help people by into the idea that it is a V-6. I have caught so many by surprise when what they presumed was a V-6 rental smokes them off the line and screams down the road.

2014 Black/Black/Black Convertible GT. BBK LTH w/ shorty X-pipe, Flowmaster American Thunder mufflers and BAMA tune.

DROP that top and photo the interior. I have never seen a red on red on the convertible. Did they have the interior custom done?

Will sure post some pics of the interior. Its been raining all day long but hopefully tomorrow the sun will be shinny.

The brick red interior is very popular here in Mexico, probably because Ford in the US has to get rid of the excess inventory of red leather since it seems to not be a popular choice. We can´t custom order the cars down here but i´d say probably 50% of the cars sent to Mexico have red interiors. My other 2010 GT (candy apple) also had the brick red interiors, though the red tone is very different, those are a bit darker.

I don´t love the red interior, but I don´t hate it either. It probably looks better on a black or sterling silver car. Curiously, red interiors have pretty much always been a part of the Mustang history since the 60´s and were also quite popular during the Fox era. They were gone with the 99 new edge model and came back with the 05 model.

Will post pics with top down tomorrow for sure!
