This year marks the 50th anniversary of Ford Mustang’s introduction to the world. The iconic car rolled out in 1964. Now, Ford will commemorate the occasion by building 1,964 units of the 2015 Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition. Buyers get two colors: Wimbledon White or Kona blue, and a choice of six-speed manual transmission or six-speed automatic.
The chrome highlights and louvered rear quarter windows come only in this edition. Other offerings include cashmere and leather on the steering wheel, front bucket seats and other console areas. The limited edition has a 5.0-liter V8 producing 420 hp. This thing looks good and they’ll come out first half of next year, so save a spot in line starting. Right. NOW.
“Boom!” Remember when John Madden used to say that in the early iterations of his video game? The franchise is now 25 years old, and these days the only thing he says is “Where are my damn royalty checks, Bernice!?” and “This gravy needs more gravy!” This Amazon exclusive Madden NFL 25 Anniversary Edition ($100) brings you EA’s newest version of pixel pigskin, plus a 17-week Madden Ultimate Team pack subscription and exclusive offers for DirecTV and NFL Sunday Ticket for your phone, tablet, or computer. Pick it up for the Xbox 360 or PS3, or do the gaming equivalent of going for it on 4th and 5 by ordering a copy for the Xbox One or PS4.
Instead of applying for AARP, Land Rover is marking its 65th anniversary with the LXV Special Edition of its legendary Defender ($44,671). Featuring a 2.2 liter diesel engine capable of 120 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, only 65 of these hard-topped, off-road warriors will be made. LXV branding is all over the interior, with orange stitching weaving its way throughout the seats, steering wheel, and center console. Factor in 16-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels, a Santorini Black paint job, and a tailgate sporting a black Union Jack badge and you can see why it’s a very special “65 Love Affair”.
