Ford Mustang Goes on Sale in the UK for the First Time Ever
Today marked a special moment in Ford’s UK automotive retail history as customers were, for the first time ever, able to specify and order the new Mustang – more than 50 years after the car first went into production.
Equipped with a 310 bhp 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine or a 412 bhp 5.0-litre V8 engine, the new Mustang fastback and convertible models are available to order from new FordStores. Located mostly in metropolitan areas, Ford is currently rolling out the stores across the country.
“There’s never been a better time to introduce this iconic car across Europe. All-new Ford Mustang is the most modern, technologically advanced and forward-looking Mustang in the amazing history of the marque,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president of marketing for Ford in Europe.
Available with six-speed manual or automatic transmission, the new Mustang will come fitted as standard with 19-inch wheels, a performance brake package, xenon headlamps, LED tail lamps, and a rear diffuser. Further standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a nine-speaker sound system, and voice control connectivity with an eight-inch colour touch screen.
Never before has the Mustang gone on sale worldwide and the all-new model will be available to customers in more than 100 markets. First shipments are headed for Asia, with vehicles scheduled to arrive in the UK later on in autumn.
