In year's past, the California Special wasn't much more than graphics package and e few extra cosmetic trim pieces. It has the same fading side stripe as on previous versions, but moved up to the middle of the door instead of the bottom on the 2016 version. This year, however, on top of the signature California Special side stripe and rear fender vent, the muscle auto gets a B&O Play 12-channel speaker system customized to the acoustics of the car's interior and a transmission equipped with rev-matching technology.

Other special visual features include unique five-spoke painted/machined wheels, a blacked-out open grille, and a Race Red "California Special" badge on the decklid applique. Climbing inside, this limited-run Mustang is adorned with Miko suede seats, red stitching, and special "GT/CS" embroidering throughout. The rev-matching system automatically blips the throttle during downshifts to match rpm so you don't get that drag feeling as the clutch pedal comes out. Though it's not available on the Mustang EcoBoost, the EcoBoost with the Performance Pack will now have an available active exhaust that can be quiet or loud depending on your mood or surroundings. The California Special will have new vintage-inspired colors and over-the-top stripes. But the company did announce that the new model year cars will go on sale this summer.
