Before you is a picture of a classic Ford Mustang in all of its glory from the mid-1960s - a creation many craved then and continue to crave today as one of the ultimate expressions of the motor car.
Except that this model here is from the mid-60s in spirit only.
In reality, it was built quite recently and, as such, includes many of the features you would expect from a car that was, um... built quite recently.
Meet the ‘Original Mustang Replica’ from Revology Cars out of the US, which is quite a step above a ‘tribute’ car when it comes to authenticity.
The body is all-new, and crammed inside is the technology you'd expect of a modern car and a modern engine under the bonnet.
Dynacorn is the company that makes the modern ‘Stang body under licence from Ford. The parts are the same as those that were created for the original Mustang (and are interchangeable).
Under the bonnet is a 5.0 litre V8 engine with fuel injection making 198kW - matched with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic - while disc brakes on all wheels and power steering are other features that bring the Mustang forward from its beginnings.
The suspension is a further leap forward, with McPherson struts up front and a three-link design at the rear from RRS of Australia; as used on Mustangs from 2005 until the current model with its new independent setup.
But the interior is the clincher that gets the Mustang across the line and into the 21st century, with features including Bluetooth, electric seats, remote keyless entry and central locking.
There’s also a remote boot release, tilt adjustable steering column, intermittent wipers and a digital message screen in the instrument cluster.
Revology has gone to great lengths to keep the original look. For example, the USB and auxiliary ports are hidden in the ash tray, and the electric windows are operated by pushing or lifting the original-look window winder.
The car is covered by a one-year, unlimited kilometre warranty which extends to three years for the drivetrain and five years for rust or corrosion to the body.
Both fastback and convertible body-styles are available, with first deliveries expected in the US around this time next year.
Prices start from US$119,500 (AU$156,712). The 2015 Ford Mustang will be priced from $44,990 for the EcoBoost four-cylinder model and $54,990 for the V8 when it arrives in Australia later this year.
