The 2015 Ford Mustang is going to the first model in the car’s long lineage to officially be sold in Europe. It won’t be quite as cheap in foreign markets as it is in its home market of North America, however the Blue Oval’s pony car should still offer European consumers a good amount of performance for their money.
How much performance you get in exchange for your valuable euros will depend on where you live. A 2.3-liter EcoBoost model will start at £28,995 ($43,079 USD) in Britain, but according to the Irish Independent, the same car will cost €46,000 in Ireland, equivalent to £33,282 ($49,696 USD).
The 2015 Mustang will go on sale in Ireland this October, with local Ford dealers current keeping track of interest from potential buyers. Ford says over 500,000 European citizens have visited their website to configure their own Mustang, indicative of the amount of interest in the American icon.
“The rush to configure Mustang online represents 50 years of pent up demand across Europe,” said Ford spokesman Roelant de Waar. “For some people, the new Mustang is the car they have waited for their whole lives.”
The amount of people who chose the 2.3-liter four-cylinder enginer in their Mustang or the 5.0-liter V8 was split down the middle, while two thirds of them picked manual transmissions. Black and Red proved to be the most popular colors, while Ebony leather proved to be the most popular interior color.
