It's finally here! We drive Ford's new Mustang in SA

Cape Town - It took one giant billboard to send Ford enthusiasts into a frenzy in 2013 when the automaker announced its Mustang was headed for South Africa...

The car that has inspired generations of muscle car-enthusiasts isn't only Ford's flagship performance car but the soul of the brand. The Mustang is the epiphany of motoring icons, it’s even made more than 9000 appearances in film, music and video games.

In December 2015, Ford has launched its Mustang in South Africa.

Tracey Delate, Ford SA’s general marketing manager, says: “This is the car we’ve all been waiting for! The mighty new Mustang is here!”

The Mustang features a six-model line-up powered by two petrol engine options - 2.3 EcoBoost and the mighty 5.0 V8. All engines are available with auto transmission though the GT Fastback is only available in manual guise. There are two body styles - Fastback and Convertible.

Great car to drive in a country where most of the suburban roads are full of potholes :thumbs:

The reality is that it's still a Ford (found on rubbish dump)... and the other phrase that comes to mind: "al dra 'n aap 'n goue ring..."

I've had a close look at it and it didn't push my buttons in any form (I actually had to ask the driver what it was)

I hear in the US it's known as First On Race Day? Thanks but no thanks, I'll stick to Toyota.
