In 2009 Ford teased the sport-coupe world with its Iacocca Mustang - a limited-edition pony that promised V8 power. This 4.6L beast celebrated more than four decades of performance, delivering fastback style and 400 HP. It was striking; it was bold; it was… produced in a miniscule 45-car run.
Ford had no intention of launching this vehicle on a mass-scale, instead choosing to carefully craft a few dozen ponies. This caused a surge of interest in the Iacocca Mustang, with Seattle drivers trying to snag them from the assembly line; but no one could.
That is about to change.
According to Motor Authority, the 2009 Iacocca Mustang will return to the market - with noted auction house, Barrett-Jackson, offering the No. 20 model! On April 12th the phone lines will be opened and bidding will commence, with this silver-clad pony certain to generate massive attention. Its odometer sits at a mere 400 miles, with its five-speed manual transmission barely used; and its supercharged engine should roar down every highway.
Interested? We are! The 2009 Iacocca Mustang is a rare pony… and we can’t wait to see what kind of price it fetches this spring.
