4.8 seconds to 100 km/h (62 mph) for the Coyote V8-powered GT model isn’t exactly impressive for a two-door sports car, but the Mustang has an advantage over its rivals - the truly competitive pricing.
For the 2.3-liter EcoBoost with the six-speed manual, you’re paying only €35,000. If the 5-liter Coyote V8’s rumble is more like it, that will cost you €40,000 in fastback format with the manual.
Bang for the buck, not even the Nissan 370Z can put its money where its mouth is. This is what I find most impressive about the Euro-spec Ford Mustang, more so when you consider that the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger aren’t sold on that side of the pond.
Production for the European and right-hand drive 2015 Ford Mustang will start this summer at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. As standard, European customers get amenities such as dual-zone climate control, automatic xenon headlamps, LED tail lamps, 19-inch wheels and a sporty rear diffuser.
Delivery dates? July for mainland Europe, October for the UK.
