Most recognizable of all its many visual tweaks is the California Special's fading black side stripes - a telltale fixture that's been a part of every GT/CS since the second-generation model from 2007-'09.

Other touches include a signature Ebony Black and Race Red script California Special badge, Mustang Performance Pack 1 front splitter and five-spoke painted wheels. Climbing inside, this limited-run Mustang is adorned with Miko suede seats, red stitching, and special "GT/CS" embroidering throughout.
