That’s not a standard Ford Mustang, is it? Far from it. It’s got 700bhp for a start, getting on for 300bhp more than standard. But the important thing here isn’t that this is a tuned Mustang – that’s hardly a novelty back home in America – but that this is a British-tuned Mustang. Mostly using US bits, but a Mustang tuned for a European audience nevertheless. It’s been done by luxury car dealer Clive Sutton in response to Ford bringing the pony car to Europe as a proper part of the model range, and the likely appetite for bolt on bits. Do we need a tuned Mustang over here? I think so, yes. If I have an issue with the standard 5.0 V8 Mustang, let alone the Ecoboost, it’s that the engine sounds too apologetic, too wheezy to really convince as a muscle car. Clive Sutton offers a range of upgrades, so you don’t have to have your Mustang as decked out as this £72,500 shrinking violet. So what’s this one got?
