Ford Mustang GT Fastback Launched In India At Rs 65 Lakh

  • Jul 12, 2016
The Ford Mustang is one of the most recognisable performance car names known across the globe. From today it will be more than just a name whispered among the car enthusiasts in the country, though. Ford has launched the Mustang in India today; a single variant of the car is available with a V8 naturally aspirated motor paired to a six-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The Ford Mustang GT Fastback 5.0l V8 is priced at Rs 65 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.

In its sixth generation, the Ford Mustang is a hark back to its predecessors while also ushering in a whole lot of modernity. More than 50 years after the first Mustang was launched for the American market, the new Mustang is - most importantly - now available from the factory as a right-hand-drive car, has independent rear suspension and is also available with a 2.3-litre, turbocharged, 4-cylinder motor. The decision to make the new Mustang a global model when it was launched way back in 2014 is the reason why the car is available in India. But, the company took its own sweet time to launch this flagship model here; the Figo, Figo Aspire and Endeavour having taken precedence.

In terms of design, the Mustang continues to have classic pony car features - a long hood, a coupe (or fastback) roof and a very short boot - but with a modern twist. It is not as brawny as the 5th generation model, it is now more lithe-looking. Check out the images below:

The Ford Mustang GT Fastback is powered by a 5.0-litre (4949cc), V8 naturally aspirated petrol engine - dubbed the 'Coyote' - developing 401PS of maximum power at 6,500rpm and 515Nm of peak torque at 4,250rpm. Performance figures are not the same as international markets, power is down by 40PS and torque is lower by 27Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed, dual-clutch transmission, this can be controlled via paddle shifters behind the steering wheel. Indian customers will not be offered the 6-speed manual transmission - even as an option. The Mustang is offered with 4 driving modes - Normal, Sport+, Track and Snow. Customers can also activate special electronic track assists like the Line-Lock feature via the Mustang Track Apps smartphone app. Independent rear suspension, Brembo brakes, Pirelli P Zero tyres and a Torsen rear differential also help the Mustang be a very good sports car.

Safety systems include advanced ESC, 6 airbags including dual front, side and rollover curtain airbags, pedestrian protection system and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
