And there you have it – a brand-new Mustang with the steering wheel on the right. Ford has finished construction of the very first right-hand drive 2015 Mustang, and the prototype will undergo testing to prepare the pony for its leap into over 25 RHD markets around the world.
When global production begins, it’ll be the first time an RHD Mustang rolls off a Ford assembly line. While the US is naturally the car’s biggest market, more than 161,000 units have been sold elsewhere from its birth in 1964 to date; in 2012 alone, more than 4,000.
Now that the Mustang has finally got it ‘right’, its introduction in Malaysia is, at long last, not improbable. The icing on the cake is of course the road tax-friendly 2.3 litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 310 hp and 433 Nm of torque (so why would you want the 300 hp/379 Nm 3.7 litre V6?), although we’re sure some would plump for nothing less than the 435 hp/541 Nm 5.0 litre V8.
We were in Sydney last year covering the official unveiling of the sixth-gen Ford Mustang – see full details, a mega gallery, finalised power figures, videos explaining the car and a video of the event itself.
