Mustang fans will be paying somewhere between $44,990 and $63,990 to park one of Ford’s new-age pony cars in their garage. Pricing details for the first official right-hand drive Mustang were confirmed in March, with the range extending to six models – four fastbacks and two convertibles. Engines will be a 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 5.0-litre V8 that makes 303 kiloWatts and 525 Newton-metres of torque. But the convertible only comes as an automatic.
There are only four options: racing stripes at $650, a black roof at $975, 19-inch premium wheels at $500 and prestige paint, also at $500.
Ford reports a sellout from day one, with early adopters promised their cars by the middle of November.
One eager owner has done a price comparison which reveals great news for Australian buyers. He ‘built’ a car identical to his on the American website for the car, adding the additional equipment that is standard on the Australian Mustang. The result was a car that was actually more costly in the USA, once the exchange rate is added to the equation, than the one he will be getting in Melbourne.
