This concept picture has been developed since August 2014 right after the event of Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance. Of course, this 2016 Mustang Rocket is quite different from the common Ford Mustang models because it has new front end and hood to support its wider fenders made of carbon-fiber. This way will make the car have lighter bodyweight in order to support its performance faster with better fuel consumption.

The grille is also new with the hexagonal shape to make it very nice with lighting accent. In addition, 2016 Mustang Rocket is designed with twin hood scoops borrowed from the 1968 Shelby GT500 to make people a bit nostalgic about that old car.

The interior design will not be too far from the original version of Ford Mustang. The company considers giving some nice refreshments by presenting red leather to make it more acceptable on the market.
