YOU WON’T LOSE MUCH WITH A MUSTANG !
Motorists looking for a new sports car that doesn’t depreciate overnight should look at getting hold of a new Ford Mustang, advises cap hpi.
The Mustang currently holds the title for best depreciating sports cars at 12 months old and 10000 miles, beating models from Porsche, Nissan and Lotus to the number 1 spot.
1st. Ford Mustang – 99.5% retail value retained against RRP
2nd. Porsche Cayman – 96.5% retail value retained against RRP
3rd. Lotus Elise – 93.4% retail value retained against RRP
4th. Nissan GT-R 89.9% retail value retained against RRP
Clive Wilson editor of Black Book at cap hpi said “The new Ford Mustang met with positive reviews in the media and is proving a hit for the brand. The majority of buyers are picking the V8 for the authentic muscle car experience, while the Ecoboost engine accounts for around 30% of sales. Depreciation is often the hidden cost of motoring but for anyone looking for a good value sports car, the Ford Mustang provides a savvy new and used purchase.”
Since 2015, the Ford Mustang has topped 4000 sales to date, with total sales this year so far at 2317. This puts the Mustang comfortably at the top of the table, the closest rival being the Jaguar F-Type with 1446 units. The current split in sales across models shows that 70 per cent of customers specified the 5.0-litre V8 engine, with the remaining 30 per cent favouring the 2.3-litre EcoBoost. Total customer orders for the Ford Mustang in Europe now stand at more than 19500 vehicles since they were launched in the third quarter of 2015.
