Mustang to be sold in UK
The next generation of Ford Mustang, due in 2015, looks to finally get a right hand drive edition.
Ford has finally listened to the cries of fans in the UK and revealed they make a version of the next Mustang specifically for the UK at their Go Further event.
It will be the first time that Ford UK has had a two door sports coupe in it’s range since they dropped the Cougar way back in 2002.
The next Mustang is due to be a heavily modified version of the current rear-wheel drive chassis on which the car has been based since 2005.
This will include the large task of adapting the engine bay and front axle set up to accept right hand drive.
The engines have not been confirmed but it is likely that the UK will miss out on the typical lumbering V8 thanks to EU emissions regulations.
It is more likely that there will be a V6 with more than 300bhp or four cylinder Ecoboost similar to that in the new Focus ST which would mean about 250bhp.
Perhaps the best news is that the new Mustang will be getting independent rear suspension as opposed to the live rear axle used on the current model which should mean some sharper and more balanced handling.
