Need for Speed Rivals players can now race the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang before the car hits the streets in 2014, EA has announced.

To obtain the new car you simply need to download the free game patch.

"We worked closely with EA to provide engineering data for the new Mustang, several months before we showed it to the rest world. The computer design models enabled the game developers to create an accurate representation of the new Mustang," said Mark Bentley of Ford.
