2015 Ford Mustang celebrates NYE in Sydney

Ford has hoisted a 2015 Ford Mustang high above the Sydney Opera House as part of Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.

2015 WILL SEE Ford begin its wave of new product releases in Australia with the 2015 Ford Mustang one of its most anticipated new products. To celebrate and keep up the hype around its new products which include the 2015 Ford Everest and Ranger, Mondeo, Edge and Mustang, Ford Australia has hoisted a convertible Mustang to the top of a building next to the Sydney Opera House.

Part of Sydney’s New Years Eve celebrations and the Mustang’s 50th anniversary, the hoisting of the Mustang in Sydney follows Ford putting a Mustang on top of the Empire State Building and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest skyscrapers.

According to a short release, Ford says “As a new associate partner to the City of Sydney, Ford Australia also will host the event’s first-ever soundtrack by broadcasting music – including live performances featuring the Australian group Milky Chance – to key harbour-side locations”.

    No one noticed the Mustang and no one cared… that should have been the Falcon, not that cheap yank piece of metal.

      Hey there, yep, I get what you’re saying and the stunt didn’t make much sense to me either… It would have only been seen by whoever was invited to the affair where the car was … or so I assume. It could have been the Falcon, but it was all part of the Mustang’s 50th anniversary. It’s sad about the Falcon for sure, but don’t forget that Aussie engineers will still be working on global models, like Ranger and Everest, etc. Not that that entirely makes up for job losses. Cheers Isaac.

    Cant wait for the Mustang…. would love to know the pricing though!
    How about 55-60k for the V8!

      Hey Morgan, I’d love to know the pricing too. There are plenty of rumours that the Mustang will be priced similarly to the Falcon, but I’m not so sure about that… It’ll be a premium-ish model here. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Cheers Isaac.
