The Top Gear car review:Ford Mustang

Overall verdict
This is the car that makes our Mustang dreams a reality. Sleek TT it ain’t, and neither should it be.


It’s a Mustang and it’s officially here in Europe for the first time in history


Not the most sophisticated of machines


What is it?

We know what you’re thinking: why on earth would I be interested in an left-hook muscle car brought into the UK by some dodgy US import dealer called something like Big John’s Stateside Motors? The correct answer to that is that you wouldn’t be. But here’s the thing, as of right now you can pop into your nearest Ford dealer and come out with one of these. In right hand drive. With a lily-livered four cylinder engine if you so wish. And a full UK warranty. Sound good? Of course it does. This is the all-new Mustang, specifically designed to be sold in markets outside of America and as well as a 5.0-litre V8, you can now have it with a 2.3-litre turbocharged Ecoboost engine.
