The current one is an SUV, so a Mustang in name only.

The performance difference makes me wonder why anyone would bother with the V8. Especially when you consider the price difference, although that is much less here. Mustangs have always been available with engines other than V8s, as they were cheap cars based on ordinary saloons. That were usually fitted with straight six or even four cylinder engines.


I saw a Mustang SUV yesterday, and it looks like somebody crashed a Focus into a Mustang and spent 10 minutes with a welder and big tub of filler.

At the classic car show I had a ride for charity in a 5.0 mustang that had been played with, 860bhp with suspension and brake mods to suit. Performance was absolutely brutal and handling seemed pretty impressive too :y

Acceleration was quite uncomfortable to be honest, noise was superb 8)
