Ford brought back the California Special moniker in 2007 as a special cosmetic package, but the original model debuted in 1968. Ford has reintroduced the California Special option for the 7th generation Mustang, just in time for the model's 60th anniversary in 2024.
The new California Special has unique Rave Blue accents around the GT and 5.0 logos, alloy wheels, and the nostril intake surrounds. Dark-tinted headlamps, the recognizable GT/CS emblem on the grille, and side graphics that combine High- and Low-Gloss Black parts with Medium Light Rave Blue are some of the other exterior characteristics.
The GT/CS emblem is displayed in Rave Blue on the standard 19-inch alloy wheels, which have a Carbonized Gray finish. There's also the option of the 19-inch machined-face Performance Pack wheels with Rave Blue pockets for an even more stunning look.

The 2024 Ford Mustang GT California Special is already on the market, costing $1,995 more than the GT Premium. The package, like the latter, is only available with the 5.0-liter V8 engine, linked to either a 6-speed manual or an optional 10-speed automatic transmission. The redesigned GT/CS will make its public debut on November 16 at the 2023 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Both fastback and cabrio body variants will be available for the 2024 Mustang GT California Special, which will have striking Rave Blue exterior elements and matching interior detailing.
