The new Ford Mustang is finally coming to European markets, but with significantly less power

--

The Ford Mustang will celebrate 60 years since its first introduction this year, and those interested in Europe will also be able to celebrate by buying the last generation introduced last year. Compared to the US version, however, they will have to settle for slightly lower performance.

The car will once again be available in both coupe and convertible body styles, with the canvas roof revealing the sky above your head in eight seconds. The significantly modernized cabin will offer a 12.4-inch digital instrument panel and a 13.2-inch infotainment screen facing the driver.

The SYNC4 system promises modern graphics, 5G connection, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto wireless connectivity, cloud navigation or a great music experience thanks to the B&O audio system.

Ford will probably be the only one in the world to make an affordable sports car with a V8, the head of the brand said

Under the hood of the GT model will be a 5.0-liter V8 engine, tuned to 328 kW (446 hp) and 540 Nm of torque. These are nice values, but the American model offers 358 kW (487 hp) and 562 Nm of torque. With the optional sports exhaust, even up to 362 kW (493 hp) and 566 Nm.

The European model will offer an active exhaust system for quiet driving around town as well as the right atmosphere on open roads and six driving modes. Standard on the GT is a Performance package with a limited-slip differential and 19-inch Brembo brakes.

Customers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission and a ten-speed automatic. MagneRide suspension is also available as an option, and an electronic parking brake with Drift Brake function is interesting. The price of the GT model on the Czech market starts from CZK 1,591,900.

Dark Horse

In Europe, however, a sharper version of the Ford Mustang Dark Horse, on the basis of which racing cars are created, will be available.

The car will impress with a more distinctive design, including a fixed rear wing, a more prominent diffuser, a new Dark Horse logo, and the special Ember Blue paint will also be present.

But the most interesting thing is the more powerful version of the 5.0-liter V8 engine, which is tuned to 333 kW (453 hp) and 540 Nm of torque. In the USA, however, this version is even tuned to 373 kW (507 hp) and 566 Nm of torque, which is quite freezing when looking at European parameters.

The Mustang Dark Horse is also available with a ten-speed automatic transmission, but the alternative is a special Tremec six-speed manual. In addition, the revised suspension, improved cooling and standard Pirelli tires improve the driving characteristics. The price of the Dark Horse Mustang in the Czech Republic will start at 1,871,900 CZK.

The Ford Mustang arrives in the GT California Special edition, betting mainly on blue accessories
