First ever Right-Hand Drive Ford Mustang produced
Ford Mustang engineers have completed the first ever right-hand drive sixth-generation Mustang prototype ahead of its global market introduction in 2015.
FOR THE FIRST TIME ever, a right-hand drive Ford Mustang will roll off a Ford assembly line when global production begins.By adding a right-hand drive Mustang to the line-up allows the ‘pony car’ to be sold in more than 25 right-hand drive markets around the world, including Australia, South Africa and the UK.
Ford Mustang engineers recently finished construction of the very first right-hand-drive sixth-generation Mustang. The prototype Mustang will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market in the coming months.
This year marks the Mustang’s entry into an exclusive club – vehicles in continuous production for 50 years. Despite not officially being sold beyond America for much of its 50 years, the Mustang has more than 100 fan clubs and over 7.6 million fans on Facebook – the most of any vehicle nameplate. It was recently voted ‘Europe’s most wanted classic car’.
The sixth-generation Mustang goes on sale in the United States this autumn and in the UK in 2015, and will eventually be available in more than 110 countries worldwide. Ford Australia is yet to confirm which engine variants we’ll see or pricing for the Mustang when it arrives here in 2015.
