Ford begins testing the all-new right-hand-drive Mustang

The all-new sixth-generation Ford Mustang was unveiled last December with sales starting this autumn in the U.S. and in more than 120 countries next year.

Big news for UK customers is that for the first time in 50 year history, the Ford Mustang will be available in a factory-built right-hand-drive configuration.

Ford Mustang engineers recently finished construction of the very first right-hand-drive sixth-generation Mustang prototype, which will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market in the coming months.

In addition to United Kingdom, more than 25 new right-hand-drive markets will be able to purchase the new Mustang, including the Australia and South Africa.

In U.S. the new Mustang is offered with three engines, though in most international markets the V6 won’t be offered and the choice includes:
– 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 310bhp and 320 lb-ft of torque
– 5.0-litre V8 engine with 435bhp and 400 lb-ft of torque
