Also, the video answers any questions you might have about the new Mustang, including why Ford made it wider.
The video you're about to see is the second in Ford's Mustang in Europe series and offers an insight on the new Mustang from the people who worked on the pony car's development.

As you'd expect, the video involves a lot of sideways action courtesy of a red Mustang GT Fastback and its beefy five-oh V8 good for 421 horsepower and 530 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque. It can run from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds, which means it's the perfect tool to avoid embarrassment with a quick getaway once that traffic light turns green.

Besides the monster V8, European customers can equip their new Mustang with a softer engine, namely a 2.3-liter EcoBoost plant toned down to produce 317 horsepower and 432 Nm (318 lb-ft) of maximum torque, still good enough to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds.

The video will also tell us how it feels to work on a new Mustang from the carmaker's point of view, especially when, as they put it, "whenever you redo a Mustang you have the eyes of the world on you."

We already tested the new Ford Mustang, in both egos - with the V8 and with the EcoBoost engine - and we found out the V8 is the engine that works like a charm on the Mustang, and the extra money you have to pay for doubling the number of cylinders makes sense.

What engine would you opt for?
