Gaming enthusiasts are likely already gearing up for the silver screen adaptation of the racing game "Need for Speed." To make a movie about racing means using a lot of fast, sporty cars, and DreamWorks Studios recently announced the "leading lady" would be none other than the iconic Ford Mustang. The automaker is not only lending the model to the studio for the film, set to debut March 14, 2014, but is creating a one-of-a-kind vehicle specially for the film.
"Ford Mustang is a symbol of freedom and optimism that allows you to be the person you dream of being, making it the perfect fit for this story," said Jim Farley, Ford Motor Company's executive vice president of global marketing, sales and service. "Ford is excited to partner with DreamWorks and Electronic Arts as they bring the epic gaming franchise of 'Need for Speed' to the big screen, allowing us to go further with them as they tell their great story on the global stage."
The silver car will have a custom body, a V-8 engine, blue racing stripes, 22-inch wheels and a hood with twin vents. In addition to that, Ford will also be providing a massive F-450 truck for the flick, so be sure to keep an eye out for it if you go to see "Need for Speed." In addition to flashy sports cars and tough trucks, the film adaptation of the video game stars Aaron Paul of "Breaking Bad" fame and Michael Keaton, who is best known for his portrayal of Batman.
Drivers who can't wait for the movie to come out can satisfy their craving for fast, fun rides by buying a used car from New Jersey Auto Auction. The dealership has a wide variety of makes and models, including a number of sports cars like the Mustang.
