New Ford Mustang: First right-hand-drive Mustang built
The new Ford Mustang, unlike Mustangs in the past, will be sold in the UK in right-hand-drive (and in other RHD markets too), and that has now got closer with the reveal of the first RHD Mustang (above) to roll out of a Ford production plant. Ford has already taken orders for the first 130 UK spec RHD Mustangs during the UEFA Champions League final back in May, when 500 new Mustangs were offered as a high-profile way to kick off sales of the new Mustang in Europe.
The Mustang is available for the UK in RHD as either a Fastback or Convertible and a choice of either a 420bhp V8 or 2.3 litre EcoBoost with 324bhp, with a standard spec that includes Ford’s SYNC 2, Park Assist, Leather and 19″ alloys.
Now, those lucky enough to bag one of the first UK Mustangs during the Champions League final are a step closer to getting their cars (although it still won’t be until in to 2015), with the first RHD Mustang being built, even if it is only a prototype to shake down the RHD spec.
