Ford Mustang to head back to the top of Empire State Building

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the iconic Ford Mustang, the car will be heading back to the top of the Empire State Building in a repeat of a 1965 stunt. 

A brand new 2015 convertible version of the car will soon find itself on the 86th floor observatory after being split into three pieces to be taken up in the building's elevator. 

It is the same method used to take the 1965 model to the top of the skyscraper, but the new car presents a new challenge. It is 180mm longer and 100mm wider than its ancestor, meaning it will be a particularly tight squeeze for the segments. 

Once it reaches its destination, technicians will have just six hours to put the car back together, before it is put on display for the public between April 16th and 17th.

The Ford Mustang will be officially sold in the UK for the first time in the next couple of years, with motoring enthusiasts expected to rush to get their hands on one of the latest models.
