Ford Motor Company has released the first TV commercial for the brand new 2015 Mustang. Co-branded for the “Need for Speed” movie, the ad was directed by Scott Waugh, the same man that sat in the big chair during production of the upcoming motion picture.
The ad that debuted during Sunday’s Daytona 500 race includes scenes from the movie and features a voice over that sets up the premise of the film. And the main star, a Race Red painted 2015 Ford Mustang.

“The best movie cars combine tons of power, rear-wheel drive, great handling and the ability to be easily flung around corners,” says Waugh. “As we’ve seen hundreds of times over the years – from ‘Bullitt’ to ‘Gone in Sixty Seconds’ – Mustang fits the bill perfectly, and it’s really a car that represents American culture at its best, which is why we chose it for Toby’s ride in ‘Need for Speed.’”

As we’ve previously mentioned, the Need for Speed movie is scheduled to hit nationwide theaters on March 2014. The film will star Aaron Paul, who is driving a bespoke 2014 Ford Mustang as well as the sixth-generation pony featured in the video below.

While this highly-anticipated movie is only two weeks away, those looking to grab a 2015 Mustang will have to end until the fourth quarter of the year, when Ford will begin shipping the pony car to its global showroom.
