Mag­i­cal Mus­tang

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

Ford’s fab­u­lous Mus­tang is prov­ing a big hit in the UK, top­ping the high­per­for­mance sports coupe sales charts af­ter just a few months on sale.

Since Ford UK started tak­ing or­ders last year for the first right hand drive Mus­tang, it has topped 4,000 sales, with to­tal 2016 regis­tra­tions at 2,317, so far.

This puts the Mus­tang com­fort­ably at the top of the ta­ble against ri­vals, the clos­est be­ing the Jaguar F-Type with 1,446 and out­selling the likes of the Mercedes SL, Porsche 911 and Audi TT in the sport­ing coupe sec­tor.

The cur­rent split in sales across mod­els shows that 70 per cent of cus­tomers went for the 5.0-litre V8 en­gine, with the re­main­ing 30 per cent favour­ing the 2.3-litre EcoBoost.

To­tal cus­tomer or­ders for the Ford Mus­tang in Europe now stand at more than 19,500.
