  • The 2018 Mustang will be the fastest pony car ever Ford said thanks to an optional

It also includes all of the features from Performance Pack Level 1: retuned ABS and stability control, six-piston calipers, a silver strut tower brace... the kit list really adds up. The tires are 1.5-inches wider than those found with Performance Pack Level 1.

Via information leaked on the internet, we learned a while back that there was a spicier 2018 Ford Mustang GT performance package coming and today, the Motor Company dished the details on this new go-fast option. There's a custom high-performance front splitter and rear spoiler, created to add more downforce into the corners, with black detailing, and exclusive ten-spoke alloys.

Designed for the 2018 vehicle, the Performance Pack Level 2 takes the car's capabilities one step further. Those tires are now Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, 305/30R19 front and rear - expensive meats that you'll only want to drive in dry, warm conditions.

The exterior appearance of the auto is really where we see the most differentiation from the factory Mustang EcoBoost convertible.

The facelifted Mustang is yet to arrive in the United Kingdom, but should the new performance pack become available, it'll likely be exclusive to the 5-litre GT specification mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as opposed to the ten-speed automatic.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant ejected in Warriors loss to Grizzlies
The Warriors won't forget the huge comeback by the Grizzlies in their first meeting at the Oracle last season any time soon. The Grizzlies got 27 points from point guard Mike Conley , who shot 9-of-15, including hitting four 3-pointers.

But the most obvious visual change is wider, meatier wheels and tires that are 1.5 inches wider than the Level 1 tires and mounted to new 10.5-inch-wide front and 11-inch-wide rear 10-spoke Dark Tarnish wheels.

Other changes with the PPL2 include thicker stabilizer bars, stiffer springs, and retuning for both the electronic MagneRide shock absorbers and electronic power-assist steering.

"We have no plans to offer the US-market Level 2 package on Australian Mustang models", Ford product communications manager Damion Smy told TMR.

Elsewhere, to help keep it the right way up, the upgraded Mustang gets the front splitter from the previous generation Boss 302 Laguna Seca. "The auto has lightning-quick response and never gives up grip", said Jaime Cullen, Ford supervisor for vehicle dynamics development.

Pricing for the package is $6,500, and you can put in an order for a Mustang with it now for delivery next spring.
