Horse trad­ing

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle News -

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.
