If you’re into cars in any way, like the SXdrv crew is, cast your mind back to when you were younger (assuming you’re around the 30-40-year old mark) then there’s a very high probability that you know someone with a Ford Mustang poster on their bedroom or garage wall, if it wasn’t up on your own wall. It’s a car that’s always stood for performance, and it has one of the richest histories of any car lines out there, it’s hands down the most famous Ford ever produced. Classic car collectors have always sought after Mustangs, especially collectors in countries outside of the United States. Many countries were excluded from getting the car because of it being a left hand-drive, and so exposure to the car was limited to some rare models that were privately imported, or to magazines and more recently, online galleries. Then back in 2015 something amazing happened to the Ford Mustang...
Not only did the clever men in white coats completely re-engineer the Ford Mustang from the ground up to create an all-new car, the powers that be who run these projects decided that the then latest Ford Mustang should be available in both left and right hand-drive to make it a truly global sports car. This means that the throngs of Ford fanatics now had the ability to purchase a brand new Ford Mustang is just about any country - legally. As you’d expect this did amazing things to the sales figures of the car. Those countries that were never able to have new models snapped up as many as they could and they were flying off showroom floors in record numbers. Most people know the Ford Mustang to be a performance car and the only one to have was the rumbling V8, but smaller motors were introduces, line an inline six and a 2.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder sourced from the Focus RS, and while these options had the Mustang V8 purists all complaining, the sales figures showed that people wanted a Mustang no matter what was powering it. Also, with today’s technology and the aftermarket tuning scene, the 4-cylinder that would usually be shunned was also subjected to mad modifications using big turbos and the like. People were buying Mustangs, all of them.
