This Pony is loud and proud

wheels and Re­caro seats, our GT car also came with a list of good com­fort items. These in­cluded a huge glass roof, an elec­tron­ics pack­age that in­cludes a voice-ac­ti­vated nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem, and dual-zone cli­mate con­trol.

The op­tional Re­caro leather seats were pre­vi­ously found in the Mus­tang Boss. If you are a regular reader of Mus­tang re­views, you know how great these seats are.

The car’s voice-ac­ti­vated nav sys­tem and rear-view cam­era, all cour­tesy of Ford’s SYNC sys­tem, are also use­ful ad­di­tions. I liked the flex­i­bil­ity to tailor the Mus­tang to my taste and found the SYNC sys­tem easy to nav­i­gate.

One of my favourite fea­tures found on the Mus­tang’s SYNC sys­tem, though, was the Track Apps. This
