You’re bound to have heard by now that the all-new Ford Mustang is available on the Irish market, so we are looking at its key features and seeing just what the hype is all about.
First you have two models to choose from, the unmistakable look of the Fastback, or the streamlined profile of a Convertible, both available in 10 colours. Then you need to select your level of power, a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine or 5.0-litre V8 engine.
The Fastback embodies the spirit of a Mustang in an ultra-modern form. The Fastback’s long bonnet flows downwards to reduce drag, helping the car to cut through the air with ease. The distinctive headlamp and rear light designs as well as other signature features, leave you in no doubt as to the car’s identity.
The Convertible is perfectly proportioned from every angle, a flowing beltline wraps around the cabin opening to define it. An entirely new folding mechanism enables the roof to fold away in seconds, deep into the body to maintain the car’s streamline appearance and aerodynamics.
The exterior commands a powerful presence complete with the instantly recognisable Pony or GT badge as well as the forward -leaning ‘shark-bite’ grille, sculpted bonnet at front, unique tri-bar tail lamps and twin exhausts at the rear. The car’s muscular yet sensual body shape is accentuated by design features that improve aerodynamics and down-force, maximising performance and efficiency.
The interior is cocooned in comfort, surrounded by space and technology. The layout is inspired by a jet fighter cockpit, the cabin is comfortable, well-equipped and invigorating interior space. Completed with aluminium panels, leather seating and surrounds and metallic detailing.
