If Ford knew the Mustang will be such a successful car in Europe, they would have launched it earlier and also with the previous generations. The current Mustang is already a hit in the UK.

Over 1,000 UK customers have now received their new right-hand-drive Ford Mustang, as total sales accelerate past 3,500.

So far, 80 per cent of UK customers have opted for the fastback body style over the convertible and 68 per cent have specified the 416PS 5.0-litre V8 engine. Mustang’s six-speed manual transmission is the slightly more popular choice (54 per cent) over the six-speed automatic.

And who said that red is the perfect color for a Ferrari? Race Red is the most-popular exterior colour among UK buyers, specified on 20 per cent of Mustang orders. Magnetic Silver is second in line with 17 per cent and Shadow Black is third with 15 per cent. Triple Yellow (9 per cent) and Ruby Red (7 per cent) complete the top five.

The Mustang colour palette has been updated from March 2016 to include new White Platinum, Grabber Blue and Lightning Blue colours. Competition Orange, Deep Impact Blue and Guard Grey colour options are no longer available to order.

The right-hand drive Mustang is available to order in the UK from £30,995 (EcoBoost) and £34,995 (V8).
