Just in time for the Mustang 50th birthday celebration, Ford is showing off the 2015 Mustang convertible.

The Dearborn automaker claims the new rag-top is designed for "maximum top-down enjoyment". The Mustang chief engineer, Dave Pericak, says the unique features of the 2015 make this the "best convertible we've ever built".

The 2015 Mustang has a new electric motor controlling the convertible roof, so it operates in half the time. Plus an added bonus is that it is controlled with a single latch in the center, so you no longer have to reach across the front of the car to drop the top.

The roof is still made out of fabric, but is better insulated for a quieter ride.

Ford is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the iconic Mustang, with huge celebrations planned in Las Vegas, and Charlotte, in April. Employees will also have a Mustang show in Dearborn.
