The upcoming ‘Need for Speed’ movie will have some muscle as the starring role. No, not ‘The Rock’. The muscle comes from Ford Mustang that will be taking the star role in this video game-based movie by Dreamworks Animation and Electronic Arts. This one-off Mustang is no ordinary pony, putting 900hp to its rear wheels thanks to a modified 5.8-liter V8 engine. Driving the car will be the ‘Breaking Bad’ star, Aaron Paul.
“We’re thrilled to have Ford play such an important part in a film adapted from one of the most popular video games of all time,” said Keith Koeppen, Ford marketing communications manager. “Mustang has an incredible history appearing in movies and ‘Need for Speed’ will be a great way to continue its hero car legacy.”
