The Queen made a wish and Ford Motor Company delivered. Twenty-year-old NASCAR phenom Colin Braun brought award-winning musician and actress Queen Latifah a 2010 Ford Mustang and schooled her in how to drive the iconic muscle car like a pro. Latifah, already a proud owner of a ‘65 Mustang, wished to drive the car in the extended music video for her new song “Fast Cars.”
“There are certain cars throughout history that have their own identity. They become synonymous with feeling and energy, an event in your life,” says Latifah. “A Mustang is a Mustang; the car is timeless.”
Latifah received her pro driving lesson and 2010 Mustang by participating in “The ‘10 Unleashed” promotion, which asks people to describe their ultimate Mustang dream experience in 250 words or less.
“Queen Latifah is a fabulous actress and musician, but more importantly she stays true to herself,” says Ford Mustang Communications Manager Patricia Piedrahita. “That’s what the Mustang is all about – style, power and individuality. When Queen Latifah told us she owned a classic Mustang and wanted a new one for her ‘Fast Cars’ video, we saw the perfect fit.”
