Win one of four cars with 2013 Ford Mustang configuratorThu, 21 Jun 2012 00:00:00 -0700
The 2013 Ford Mustang configurator is back online with new features. Now, normally, this wouldn't warrant a mention. But the contest in which you could win a new Mustang, Mustang GT, Boss 302 or Shelby got our attention.
After you've designed your dream 'Stang on your computer or on the smartphone app, you can virtually inspect the car with five different views and make it appear as if it's doing a massive burnout.
As a bonus—and this might be our favorite part—you can play the sound of your virtual GT500, Boss 302 and GT Mustangs by clicking a button on the page. Fair warning: It's only fun for a few hours, but by then you probably should get back to work, anyway.
“Fans can save their finished fantasy Mustang to a computer to use as desktop wallpaper or share to their Facebook account and enter into the battle mode,” said Brian McClary, Ford digital marketing manager. “The battle mode pits the designs head-to-head, where more than 5.1 million battle votes have already been cast.”
Ford will select four virtual Mustangs over the rest of the year and build real versions of each, and they will be given to the four winning fans. Go to www.ford.com/cars/mustang/customizer/ for more details and to enter.
