Ford has a new limited-edition model for the 2019 Mustang GT that channels west coast flavor, minus the fish tacos and In-N-Out burgers.

Ford says the California Special Mustang will be available in a variety of vibrant-looking paint jobs including, crucially, the same Dark Highland Green that comes on the Bullitt. Those cars looked especially trick with the blacked-out grille and side stripe the modern auto honours complemented by fog lamps, a Shelby-styled side scoop and spoiler, and custom taillights. Under the hood is the same 5.0-liter V8 putting out 460 horsepower and 42lb-ft of torque - it would be nice to get a little extra power for a special edition, but hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it.

2 - The familiar side strip with the GT/CS logo begins just behind the front wheels and runs along the doors, fading as it meets the side scoops.

Customers who opt for the special edition vehicle get a blacked-out grille, exclusive wheels, a lower splitter and a side body stripe. A "California Special" script badge adorns the dash on the passengers side. Ford is packing some very cool tech into the 2019 California Special with a 6-speed manual transmission that features rev-matching technology.

5 - The 2019 GT/CS gets unique wheels with a machined face and painted pockets. "This signature design takes its cues from the original California Special, while enhancing the personality of today's Mustang".

New for 2019 is a rev-matching six-speed manual.

Climb inside the new GT Calfiornia Special and you'll be greeted by seats trimmed in black Miko® suede with red accent stitching and embossed GT/CS insignias, paired with embroidered GT/CS floor mats.
