To mark the pony car’s birthday and its ‘official’ arrival in Australian showrooms next year, the Mustang will occupy an enviable position to view the New Year’s Eve fireworks around Sydney Harbour.
Ford has carefully manoeuvred a Mustang in place above the Sydney Opera House, where it sits on a neighbouring high-rise building as if it ‘climbed’ the national icon.
This may seem bizarre, but the Mustang has been ‘climbing’ buildings all year…
It all began in March, when Ford recreated a stunt from 1964 which saw the Mustang perched upon the Empire State Building’s 86th floor observatory.
Fifty years ago, Ford was looking to create a buzz around its new model ahead of the official unveiling at the New York World’s Fair.
The original stunt worked; gaining media attention and gathering public interested for its new performance coupe and convertible, ensuring sales success soon followed.
The Mustang also sat upon the world’s tallest skyscraper - the Burj Khalifa - in Dubai earlier this year.
Ford will assist Sydney’s New Year’s party as host of the event’s “first-ever soundtrack”, by broadcasting music (including live performances) to various locations around the Harbour.
The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang is expected to arrive in Australia late next year, and Ford has already established a pre-order website to field enquiries from enthusiastic would-be owners.
As the Mustang’s 50th birthday year comes to an end at midnight, we don’t expect to see it climbing any more buildings next year.
