Many of you have asked us to feature this one, so here it is. But let's do this a little differently.
Let's start with this:
And then show this:
There are two ways to look at this set of photos. One way is to look at the 2015 Mustang in general, and decide on whether you like it or not. We have heard mixed responses so far.
But the other way to look at these is to focus on the Hot Wheels casting itself, and see how well it mimics the real thing. This is another design executed by designer Ryu Asada, and once again he showcases his focus on realism and proportions.
When we first saw the Hot Wheels version, the upward-sloped chin concerned us. We were worried that the Mustang was suffering from the same distorted chin that plagued the Lotus Evora. But then going back to pics of the real thing, it is supposed to look like that. Like the Mustang or not, Ryu nailed the casting, and it is hard to get any better on a $1 car.
As for the actual Mustang itself, we here at Lamley love it. The retro-inspired design of the previous generation was fantastic, but was also getting a little tired. This model appears to move on from that design successfully, adding some great modern lines. We are on board.
But are you? Let us know. And if you are not sold, you may want to wait until you have this model in hand. It may convince you that new Mustang is a winner.
