Almost 2,000 Ford Mustang
orders have been taken in the UK since January 2015 as the first right-hand
drive cars begin to roll off the production line at Flatrock Assembly Plant in
Michigan, North America.
The right-hand drive Mustang
is available to order in the UK from £29,995 (EcoBoost) (Rs 31.50 lakh approx.)
and £33,995 (V8) (Rs 35.70 lakh) and features a Thatcham Category One alarm as
The Ford Mustang – introduced
in the U.S. more than 50 years ago – has excited fans across the globe, but has
never been available to order with right-hand drive, until now. The first UK
customer deliveries are expected from November 2015, with extra supply secured
to meet the greater than expected demand. The car is expected to hit the Indian
shores too but the company has made no announcement on the front.
Reliable sources have
confirmed that the Mustang is definitely headed for India but when, is the
million dollar question. With India’s penchant for fast cars and the likes of
BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi doing well, it is obvious that the Mustang will
have several takers among the Indians.
So far, 80 pc of UK customers
have opted for the fastback body style over the convertible and 70 pc have
specified the 416PS 5.0-litre V8 engine over the more fuel-efficient 317PS
2.3-litre EcoBoost engine. Mustang’s six-speed manual transmission is the
slightly more popular choice (55 per cent) over the six-speed automatic, which
comes with sporty SelectShift paddle control, according to a company press
Over half of UK Mustangs have
been specified with the Custom Pack which includes satellite navigation, a
Shaker Pro 12-speaker audio system, heated and cooled front seats, a rear view
camera, Luster Nickel silver alloy wheels and extra chrome detailing on
Race Red is the most-popular
exterior colour among UK buyers, with 23 per cent of Mustang orders. Magnetic
Silver and Shadow Black are joint second choice with 16.1 per cent each and
Deep Impact Blue (10.7 per cent) and Triple Yellow (8.6 per cent) complete the
top five. Ebony Black is the top pick for interior colour, selected by more
than 75 per cent of customers.
