Here’s our own video of the unveiling of the car at the 2015 Mustang press event. We were briefed inside the TCL Chinese theater on Hollywood Boulevard as to the details of the car by several members of Team Mustang, then taken outside for the unveiling. Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of the Americas, and Raj Nair, group vice president for global product, presided over the next part of the briefing.
And this was a very special and unique unveiling… since this was Hollywood (Steve McQueen’s star was 15 feet away, and son Chad was there to help), something special was done here that was not done at the other unveilings around the world. The Mustang left its own imprint in cement as part of the ceremony, although not without some difficulty.
Our apologies for the “shaky cam” video here – the cold, wind, and huge crowd worked against us.
Ford brought out some of its top people from Team Mustang, but also present where the Force family, Henry Ford III, and Chad McQueen. Pictures follow:

No word on the disposition of the Mustang “footprint” – we would think it will be shipped back to Dearborn.
