This 2012 Ford Mustang GT California Special has that right mix of style when you want something unique that you also want to really drive. You have ensured rarity with only about 300 made for this year/color, and nothing beats the power of a modern fuel-injected V8 and the control of a six-speed.

A red Mustang will always have an instant appeal. This example continues to have a nice high-gloss shine, and that plays particularly well with the GT and California Special package. After all, black always looks sporty against red, and you get plenty of it with the unique GT/CS carbon door stripe, blackout grille, blackout rear panel, and rear diffuser. Plus, the Boss-inspired front really puts an aggressive face forward. And this one turns the darkness and intimidation up a notch with black trim in front of the Roush-like faux hood scoop. Add in the large rear spoiler, bright dual exhaust tips, and upgraded 20-inch alloys, and you have quite a special package. And it's more than just its appearance that's attractive. After all, a paint name like Race Red not only reminds you of a true GT, but also Ford's records show only 435 cars were done in this color and only 302 were coupes.

The California Special gets some distinct interior touches, like the carbon fiber inspired dash and GT/CS embossing in the leather seats. Plus, the only way to get the CS was to start with a Premium trim level GT, and so that means this car is loaded. It has power windows, power locks, cruise control, keyless entry/alarm, dual front airbags, side airbags, heated front seats, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And the stereo is the premium touchscreen AM/FM/CD/XM infotainment unit with Bluetooth and Sync. The power-adjustable driver's seat has the kind of modern bolstering to let you dial in all-day comfort. The tilt steering column gives you a good view of the retro-cool gauges, and that large tach is particularly handy in this coupe.

With four cams, 32-valves, and 5.0-liters, the Coyote V8 is one of the best modern engines of our time. So it's great to see the powerplant looking so stock and well preserved. It's rated at a whopping 412 horsepower, and the six-speed manual transmission means you have firm control over all those ponies. And it's a terrific all-around driver with power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes w/ABS, and the Mustang GT sports suspension.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a two-owner rare coupe with poise and pedigree. So don't miss a bright red Mustang that's a looker and a driver. Call today!!!
