United Kingdom Scrambles to Get New Mustang Muscle Car
Published: August 25 2015 By @elanmcafee
For the first time in 50 years, perhaps the most iconic muscle car of all time - the Mustang - is set for production with right-hand specifications to accommodate driving in the United Kingdom. Dealers have only been taking orders for these new British-friendly versions for a short while, and already 2000 people have reserved their very own pony to take home. This has so far exceeded expectations that Ford of Great Britain has requested more of these Mustangs to fit the demand.
Most of the orders have been for the most powerful muscle car offering, which has a 5.0-L V8 engine under the "bonnet" that puts out 410 bhp (approximately 416 hp). The option for the six-speed manual gearbox has been popular as well; after all, the driving experience just wouldn't be the same in a plain old automatic - you have to shift gears!
Ford has also offered a Custom Pack to UK buyers, which has been extremely well received. This extras package includes temperature-controlled seats, satellite navigation, rear-view camera, upgraded stereo, and Luster Nickel alloy wheels. As for exterior paint color, the most popular choice has unsurprisingly been red.
