When the original Ford Mustang made its debut in the 1960s, it set the motoring world alight with its combination of brawny good looks, roaring engine noise and raw power. Based on the Ford Falcon compact car, the Mustang soon took on a persona of its own, and gave rise to an entirely new type of vehicle - the 'pony' car.
This is the ultimate petrol head's car; its muscular curvature, the unmistakable growl of the V8 engine, and the uncluttered interior all combine to mean just one thing. The legendary Mustang has returned, and the new version of this classic muscle car was a hit in 2015 at launch as it is today!
Ford has done a fantastic job of updating the look of the Mustang in this new edition. An aggressive front end, sharp, predator-like headlamps and a sloping roofline give the vehicle an imposing presence on the road. And the interior, too, just feels 'right'. Drawing inspiration from aeronautical design, the driver's area of the Mustang is refreshingly ergonomic and simple, achieving a delicate balance between high-tech digital displays and analogue dials which create a sense of retro cool.
As one of the most iconic models in the Ford range, the Mustang has a lot to live up to in terms of performance. Thankfully, the latest generation exceeds expectations, thanks to a 5.0-litre V8 engine which outputs up to 500bhp. Not only that, but Ford is also offering the supremely efficient 2.3-litre turbo charged EcoBoost unit, which is expected to significantly improve fuel economy.
To add to the excitement offered by this latest iteration, the new Mustang comes fitted with some truly sophisticated technology. The push-button start mechanism allows you to get going in a flash, while the driving mode selector means that you will be able to tailor your driving style to suit your mood.
