The right-hand-drive Ford Mustang
For the first time in its illustrious history, a right-hand-drive Mustang will roll off a Ford assembly line when global production begins this year.
The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s line-up of global vehicles will allow the iconic car to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world, including the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa and the prototype Mustang will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market.
While the United States is the largest market for Mustang with more than 9.2 million sales since the car’s debut in 1964, more than 161,000 Mustangs have been sold outside of North America in that time.
While Mustang has more than 100 fan clubs around the globe, and was recently voted ‘Europe’s Most Wanted Classic Car’ by AutoScout24, bringing a right-hand-drive Mustang to market will allow more enthusiasts to experience the car than ever before.
From the beginning, Mustang’s unique combination of style, performance and affordability established an entirely new class of sporty cars, and it has led the segment ever since being in continuous production for 50 years.
