Background

The Mustang has become a byword for affordable American muscle cars - it's crafted a carefully orchestrated reputation for democratic fun over six successive generations. In 2015 the Blue Oval took the decision to engineer the latest model for right-hand drive sales. So you can now buy one in your local Ford dealership.

60sec road test

The new Mustang has developed into a highly credible package. The fact that Brits can now sit on the right-hand side is the icing on the cake. The latest fifth-generation model has abandoned earlier iterations live rear axles and crummy interiors for a more sophisticated, global package. But what's clever about it is how Ford has managed to keep the drama intact. A choice of spicey engines helps: pick from the more Euro-focused 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder turbo (310bhp and 35mpg economy) or the real deal, full-fat American-spec 5.0-litre V8 developing a fulsome 415bhp and a soundtrack to die for. And isn't that the whole point of owning a Mustang? Despite the more modern multilink rear axle, this car will still slide and when the bent eight lump is hurtling you to the next corner with an angry wub-wub hammer-tune, you'll forgive the still slightly crappy interior quality. This car has character in spades, and we respect it hugely. That prices start at £30k for a four-pot seal the deal.
