Conquering the west with it's mighty beast looks and big thumping engine underneath its thick skin, the legend is first of its type to come to Indian shores to roar on Indian roads. That said, its uppish price tag, long waiting period and not-so-typical-muscle-car-design make buyers list cut short but never the less it's The Mustang!
For the 1st time in Mustang, the 5.0 V8 engine is equipped with Cam Torque actuated Ti-VCT engine. This basically manages the cam timing independent of each other.
The Right Hand Drive Mustangs have slightly less power than the Left Hand ones. Furthermore, the Indian models have lesser power compared to its British siblings!
The Mustang has been honored with a US postage stamp twice! First in 1999 with a first-class stamp valued at 33 cents and then in 2013 when the Shelby GT-500 was featured as part of a set of stamps commemorating muscle cars.
The iconic legend Mustang has finally come roaring to the Indian roads. It's one of the most recognized cars ever built and continuously being produced since 1964. The 6th generation Mustang is the first one ever to be built for the right hand drive market. The muscle car though has toned down some muscularity for all the right reasons of better aero-dynamics and improved handling. But nevertheless this one has retained all the crucial Mustang genes just tuned to be improved. It retains classic Mustang styling cues abound, from the large trapezoidal grille and angled-back head lamps to the fastback roof line and iconic three-bar tail lamps. Just having a glance at it one can feel the rage it beholds to unleash. Its aggressive stance with newly designed trapezoidal grill housing the 'racing stallion' and has big air dams throwing air directly on its 5.0L V8 engine. It has also got new HID head lamps with LED Day-time Running Lights which nicely complements its iconic 3 strip LED tail lamps with sequential turning indicator. Mustang has a dimension of - Length 4782mm, Width 2080mm and Height 1379mm which rolls on 19" alloy wheels having 2720mm of wheelbase. It has turning radius 5.54 meters. Surprisingly, there isn't a single Ford badge and just 5.0 badge on its front fender and GT on its back clearly indicating that this time it’s all about 'racing stallion' and nothing else. When V8 is revved up, its twin rounded steel exhaust growls loud, although not as loud as one would expect from an 8 cylinder car! It being first of its kind has no direct competition in India but after uppish price tag and CBU tax makes it competes against delicate and sportier Audi TT, BMW Z4 and Mercdes-Benz SLK. It might be the game changer for Ford but only time will say.
