‘Back To The Future’ Mustang
The “Back To The Future” series is of course famous for the DeLorean DMC12 but it featured many other cars. The interesting thing about the Mustangs in this movie is that they were artistic visions of future models, not regular production cars. Since Marty and Doc Brown travel in time, they encounter future vehicles. In this case, a red Fox-body Mustang GT convertible with strange add-ons (via Futuropedia).
The rise in power of domestic cars during the ’80s brought the first actual performance to the Mustang range in almost 20 years. The Fox-body Mustang grew more and more powerful with each model year, starting from 175 HP in the 1983 model. By the late ’80s, the venerable 5.0-liter V8 engine was pumping 225 HP and 300 lb.-ft of torque. This translated to reasonably competent 0 to 60 mph times.
