Ford has sold Mustangs in Europe in the past, but the 2015 Mustang is the that was developed as global vehicle from the get-go. Now, one year after it was unveiled to the world, Europeans are still waiting for the pony to hit their showrooms. But due to an online leak on a European website, we now have an idea how much the 2015 Mustang price will be in Europe.
autoevolution reports that a 2015 Mustang equipped with the 2.3L EcoBoost turbo-four and six-speed manual transmission will cost at least €34,000 in Germany, which is approximately $41,332 USD as of this writing. If you want the GT, it’ll run you about €5,000 more. Additionally, the 5.0L ‘Coyote’ V8 will — for some wild reason — be rated at 412 horsepower in Europe, and not the more robust 435 horses in the United States. And those who pine to enjoy the rays while at Cannes should expect to spend €4,000 more for a top that drops.
For some perspective, a 2015 Mustang GT convertible will cost about €7,000 less than a Porsche Boxter, so it’s certainly more of a prestige product in Europe. But that’s not to say that Ford’s new pony doesn’t have substance; after all, how much horsepower does the standard Boxter make?
