As the name says, the limited edition Mustang is finished in a Jet Black exterior and comes with unique 19-inch aluminum wheels with black accents and glass roof with a three-layer structure that blocks 90 percent of infrared rays and 96 percent of ultraviolet rays.

Motivation is provided by the familiar 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that sends 426 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque to the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. The Mustang V8 GT Coupe the Black will go on sale from March 15 and will cost JPY5.05 million, which means about $50,000 at current exchange rates.

Is this Japan-exclusive black pony gorgeous or what? Why can’t Ford release a similar edition in the United States as well? We bet it would be quite popular, even with the next-generation 2015 Mustang only months away.
