Europe – New Mustang generation gets large photo gallery image

Ford has released a large photo gallery with the new generation of the Mustang in its European configuration.

This is actually the first time when Europeans get to enjoy the Mustang officially and since its introduction on the Old Continent, more than 2, 200 customers have expressed their interest in the car, placing an order for it. The muscle car is coming in two body styles, the fastback and the convertible, and it is getting the Selectable Drive Modes, the AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, Selectable Effort Electric Power Assisted Steering and the Launch Control system for the V8 variant, along with the electronic Line Lock system. Standard items include the 9-speaker audio system, the dual-zone climate control, SYNC2 infotainment with 8-inch touch screen, LED taillights, rear diffuser, automatic HID headlights, 19-inch wheels and more.

As far as the engine lineup goes, the entry-level offered in the United States, the V6, has been dropped. Europeans can order the cheapest variant in the shape of the 2.3 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder turbocharged unit, which is capable of putting down a total output of 313 HP and 432 Nm of torque, allowing the Mustang to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.8 seconds, with the 6-speed manual transmission. The range-topping GT model has a 5.0 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine, with 415 HP and 530 Nm of torque, which needs 4.8s to reach 100 km/h with the 6-speed manual gearbox. The new Mustang generation will arrive in dealerships across Europe this July and it is priced from 35,000 euros for the EcoBoost and from 40,000 euros for the GT.
