2013 ford mustang features projection lamp

the 2013 models of the ford mustang feature a galloping horse projection

among a range of new technology and sport features, the 2013 ford mustang models feature an innovative add-on: a small lamp, embedded under the side mirror, projects the iconic image of the mustang’s galloping horse onto the ground below.

the projection occurs whenever the vehicle is unlocked. engineers worked through six or seven designs of the system before reaching the current, production-ready model.

another innovative feature in the new models is a 4.2inch LCD screen, nestled between the vehicle’s odometer and tachometer, which tracks data related to fuel economy and performance. g forces and acceleration and braking times are recorded through the ‘track apps’ program and can be navigated via a five-way control button on the steering wheel.
