Here at TC Harrison Ford we have some pretty exciting news! Year-to-date, the Ford Mustang has achieved sales 60% ahead of its nearest rival, making it the most popular high-performance sports coupe in Britain.
As part of the class of sports cars boasting 250hp or more, the iconic muscle car sees Ford racing to the top of the category, beating the Jaguar F-Type, Audi TT, and Porsche 911. This success is likely in-part thanks to the Mustang's effortless high performance, producing 314hp even with the 'standard' 2.3 litre EcoBoost engine, and up to 418hp in the 5.0 litre V8 GT version.
Priced from £30,995 for the EcoBoost engine, and from only £34,995 for the V8 GT, the Mustang is almost half the price of Jaguar F-Type, which sits in second place on the list, so it's no surprise that Ford's impressive combination of performance and affordability is popular with the British public.
Since introducing the Mustang to Europe in Autumn 2015, Ford has sold over 19,500 Mustangs across the continent, 4,000 of which are in Britain alone, and 70% of those UK buyers are opting for the roaring 5.0 litre V8 engine. With some recent tweaks Ford have also added SYNC 3 (with a new 8" touchscreen) and some new colour options to the Mustang's offerings.
All-in-all, we think it's safe to say that the new Mustang's success is more than just a luck of the draw; impressive engineering and beautifully design come together to produce a car that is difficult to resist! To find out more about the Ford Mustang, contact your local TCH Ford dealership.
