Europe awaits iconic Mustang
Ford Motor Company has unveiled the new Ford Mustang - the first Mustang ever to go on sale in Europe in almost 50 years of production.
More than nine million Mustangs have been sold since it was first launched in 1964, making it a global icon. The world's most-liked vehicle on Facebook, Mustang has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is one of 25 new vehicles that Ford will launch in Europe in the next five years.
The new Mustang has been developed with world-class performance, driving dynamics and usability in mind - and includes a significant amount of advanced driver convenience and driver aid technologies.
"The new Mustang is one of the most hotly anticipated cars ever, and here at Foray Motor Group we are looking forward to getting news of when it will arrive and introducing it to our customers," said Group sales manager Tom Croft.
The clean-sheet design of both Ford Mustang fastback and convertible evokes the essential character of the vehicle, retaining key design elements of the classic Mustangs recognisable to car fans across Europe, including the long sculpted bonnet and short rear deck, with a contemporary execution.
Several key design features define the new Ford Mustang, including:
- A low roof height and wide stance
- Sleek profile enabled by steeply sloped windscreen and rear glass
- Three-dimensional, tri-bar rear lights
- Contemporary execution of the iconic car's signature shark-bite front fascia
April 17, 2014, marks the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the original Ford Mustang. Mustang will continue to be built in
America at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant.
