Ford Mustang GT V8 Convertible

Ford Mustang GT V8 Convertible

REVIEW

How do you replace an icon? That’s the challenge that faces Ford every time they need to design a new Mustang. The most popular performance car in the history of the automobile, the Mustang has always been cool, fast and a little bit brash. For 2015 the Mustang got a lot of firsts – the first independent rear suspension in place of the rear axle, and the first RHD models to be sold in the UK. You can get a new 2.3 litre turbo Ecoboost engine, but in our eyes a Mustang must have a V8. This facelifted GT model has a 444bhp 5.0 litre V8 lump, with scintillating performance and a soundtrack to match, and as this is the convertible model your ears get uninterrupted access to that eight-cylinder burble. Thanks to the new specification, it also rides well, handles fantastically and even has an interior you can enjoy sitting in for hours. The Mustang has finally gone global, and the established European players should be very afraid, but it’s still a proper US pony car at heart…
