Ford is bringing the California Special to the S650-generation Mustang. In one of the most appropriate reveals since the Mercedes-AMG SL “Big Sur” Edition, Ford is showing off the latest iteration of this appearance package at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Keeping with the GT/CS lore, this appearance pack is still just an appearance pack and still limited to the Mustang GT.

The 2024 Mustang GT/CS comes with the choice of two 19-inch wheel options, with a normal gray or a wheel with rave blue painted pockets. Blue accents also make their way to the grille with the nostril air intakes and a GT/CS badge. The electric blue color also covers the exterior badging on the fenders, tail light panel, and lower stripe.

Blue also joins the interior, with blue accent stitching on the seats and dashboard. Rave blue is found on the special badge on the dashboard. Of course, the GT/CS is available with either a 10-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. The rest of the interior depends on your GT’s other options.

This GT/CS package, which is available on both coupes and convertibles, adds another $1995 to the bottom line of your new Mustang. Ford will unveil this California Special edition at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16, but you can add one to your next Mustang order right now.

Double-pivot steering, contra engine, planetary gear transmission (1891 – 1897)

It was Carl Benz who had the double-pivot steering system patented in 1893, thereby solving one of the most urgent problems of the automobile. The first Benz with this steering system was the three-hp (2.2-kW) Victoria in 1893, of which slightly larger numbers with different bodies were built. The world’s first production car with some 1200 units built was the Benz Velo of 1894, a lightweight, durable, and inexpensive compact car.

1897 saw the development of the “twin engine,” consisting of two horizontal single-cylinder units in parallel. However, this proved unsatisfactory. It was immediately followed by a better design, the “contra engine,” in which the cylinders were arranged opposite each other. This was the birth of the horizontally opposed piston engine. Always installed at the rear by Benz until 1900, this unit generated up to 16 hp (12 kW) in various versions.

The Benz patent motor car Victoria is the first vehicle with the double-pivot steering for which Carl Benz filed a patent in 1893.
