Ford has announced that the production of the RHD (right-hand drive) Ford Mustang has begun in Michigan, North America at the Flatrock Assembly Plant. According to the Blue Oval officials, almost 2.000 UK customers have already paid for their Mustangs.
The orders have been received since January and this is for the first time in history when the car will be available in a right-hand configuration.
According to the same source, 80% of customers have opted for the fastback body style and 70% of them have selected the 416 horsepower 5.0 liter V8 engine over the 317 HP 2.3 liter EcoBoost unit.
The six-speed manual transmission is the slightly more popular choice over the six-speed automatic gearbox.
In terms of equipment, over half of RHD Mustangs have been ordered with the Custom Pack. This one comes with satellite navigation, a Shaker Pro 12-speaker audio system, heated and cooled front seats, a rear view camera, Luster Nickel silver alloy wheels and extra chrome detailing on fastback models.
In UK, the 2016 Ford Mustang starts from 29.995 GBP for the EcoBoost versions and from 33.995 GBP for the V8 variants.Source: Ford
