Calendar years and fiscal years tend to be the only timetables automakers concern themselves with, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t recognition of other measures of time. For instance, Ford chose to observe the Chinese zodiac, mainly because the Year of the Horse just ended last week.
That’s fortuitous timing, considering the first Ford Mustangs were making their way to China as celebrations were carrying on. To recognize this fact, and the end of the Year of the Horse, Ford commissioned Vaughn Gittin, Jr., to take a 2015 Mustang GT to the streets of Ordos City, in north-central China for a joy ride.
Watch what happens when Vaughn Gittin Jr. climbs in the driver’s seat of a 2015 Mustang in the video below, and for those celebrating the new Year of the Goat, Happy Chinese New Year!
