Love for automobiles is something that binds us and our readers together. For many, this love affair with cars, bikes or any other automobile starts at a later stage of life. However, many are born with this love in their hearts and are auto fanatics from a very small age. Start soon or late, but the purity of this passion is not determined by time alone but also by its intensity. Why we are talking about this today is because of a recent incident in which Ford made a kid’s dream come true in real life. The company surprised a kid on his birthday with one of his favourite cars, the Mustang, and allowed him to take a ride in the car too. Take a look at the video below to see the emotions flow out of the child’s eye.
The kid we are referring to is Abeer, who very recently turned 7. According to his parents, Abeer had a thing for cars from a very early age. He was elated when his father gifted him a toy car at the age of 2 and since then, this love affair has climbed new heights. His family and Ford, therefore, decided to surprise him on his seventh birthday and bring a real Ford Mustang as a gift for him. At the day of his birthday, he is blindfolded and taken to an open space. As soon as his blindfold is removed Abeer jumps with happiness after seeing a Red Mustang in front of him.
He then gets inside the car and gets a good look of its sporty interiors. Further, Abeer’s birthday cake is quite special as it features the car on it. The feeling of euphoria can be seen in his eyes. In Ford’s own words, that’s how to make a birthday surprise into a childhood memory.
Talking about the other protagonist of this video, the Ford Mustang sold in India is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine that churns out a maximum power of 396 Bhp along with 515 Nm of torque. This makes it the cheapest V8 engined car in India your money can buy. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed auto gearbox which channels powers to the rear wheels. To let you know, the Indian spec Mustang gets a slightly detuned engine as compared to its international counterparts. However, the almost 400 horses its V8 still produces are enough to set you racing in no time.
Seeing this video makes us wish so badly for the same to happen to us, even if are adults now. We auto enthusiasts may be adults and doing all sorts of stuff but a good car still brings out the child in us. A very happy belated birthday to Abeer then from Team CarToq and our readers.
