Striking in Grabber Lime Green, factory code F9, a colour option only available for one year. As to be expected, in an overall excellent condition. Matt finish side skirts, front lip spoilers, carbon fibre rear boot spoiler, gloss black honeycomb front grill and bonnet vents, all denote a muscular and purposeful vehicle with an aggressive stance. The subtle 5.0 badging to either flank, hints at the power on tap, while the rear LED light panel reflects the glorious “Fastback” models of the 60’s. From any angle, the car is easily defined as unmistakably a Ford Mustang.
The extremely well equipped interior is unmarked, and shows no signs of any wear. Highly supportive black leather seats are perforated, have a contrasting stitch, plus the luxurious addition of both a heating and cooling function, and are 6-way power adjustable. The double binnacle dash-top lifts styling cues from the original cars design. Chrome effect highlights to doors and centre console are a pleasing addition. A large centre console stowage compartment houses an auxiliary 12v socket and Bluetooth connection. Floor mats have preserved the carpets throughout. The rear seats conveniently fold down flat, giving access to the boot area and creating a cavernous load space. All switches, dials and electronic aids operate exactly as factory intended. 12”inch digital LCD instrument cluster, power windows, air conditioning, heated door mirrors, cruise control, reverse camera, large touch screen, and illuminated push button start/stop. The illuminated entry sills, mood and puddle lighting, which projects the famous “Pony” image, enhance the ownership experience.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
The intoxicating hallmark of any Mustang is the aural sensation. Press the illuminated start button and the 5.0 litre V8 barks into life, quickly settling to a steady idle with pitch-perfect exhaust tone from the quad rear pipes. Generating approx. 460 bhp and 533 Nm of torque, the power plant propels the GT from 0-62 mph in around 4.9 secs and is limited to a top speed of 155 mph. Transmission is via an engaging 6 speed manual gearbox driving the rear wheels. Traction Control and Limited Slip Differential are fitted as standard. In addition, an expensive “Stop the Hop” kit will be supplied if required. Driving Modes can be selected to suit all conditions, Normal/Snow-Wet/Sport/Track + Drag Mode. Your driving experience can be further enhanced and tailored to your own personal requirements. Mustang Track Apps monitor Line Control/Accelerometer/Acceleration Time/launch Control, while Ford Sync 3 provides Smartphone connection, sync compatible Apps with App Link, while Apple Car Play + Android Auto lets you use the 8” colour Touchscreen as if it were your mobile handset. Ford Pass Connect offers Wi-Fi for a maximum of 10 devices, live traffic information, sync navigation + local hazard information, and records previous journeys.
A superb example of a very desirable motoring icon.
