This Mustang ďconceptĒ car was a 4th attempt by Ford to restyle the Mustang into a ďbiggerĒ car. Itís roofline showed quite a slope which made the rear window nearly horizontal. Itís exhaust tips were rectangular and exited through the rear valance. Check this out.... itís taillights were multicolored. When the car was coasting they turned yellow, when accelerating they were green, and of course they were red when stopping. It had a front fender badge that was a pony-over-stripes and itís name was in block letters. The doors were opened electronically (no exterior handles). There were Shelby type scoops on the front fenders. The headlights were hidden behind the front grill. Itís most favorite feature (on the car circuit) though was its color......Ultra Violet.
What Mustang concept car is this?

It is nice to see sb. is checking our (foreign) site for trivia questions or answers.
I am still trying to locate the car. Rumours say it is somewhere in a museum.

Does anybody know if Ultra Violet was actually a Ford color? It is a really cool looking purple. Check out our foreign friends link above for a color picture.
