The new Ford Mustang is available to order now, with prices for the EcoBoost model starting from £28,995.  The V8-powered GT model, meanwhile, will be available from £32,995.

The CO2 figures for the new Mustang have also been revealed, with the 314PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost recording 179 g/km placing it in VED Band I (£225 pa).

The 418PS 5.0-litre V8, however, emits 299 g/km, placing it not surprisingly in Band M, with a £1,090 first year charge and £500 a year after that.

Standard specification on the EcoBoost model includes a limited-slip differential, xenon headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, Sync 2 system with 8-inch colour touch-screen, electric seats, rear view camera and Ford MyKey.

The V8 GT model adds six-piston Brembo brakes, electronic line lock and launch control, GT badging and vertical ‘power bars’ on the front grille.

A £1,795 Custom Pack is available for both models, and adds an upgraded audio system, heated and ventilated front seats, parking sensors, alternative 19-inch alloy wheels and chrome window trim.

The Convertible models are priced at a £4,000 premium over the tin-top Fastback models, while a six-speed automatic transmission is available for both 2.3 and 5.0-litre engines for an additional £1,500.

Individual options include Shaker Pro audio system (£795), heated and cooled seats (£495) and reverse parking sensors (£295).  Leather upholstery is listed as a no-cost option.

Colour choices include two no-cost colours, Competition Orange and Race Red, plus Oxford White (£250), and six metallic finishes (£595): Absolute Black, Deep Impact Blue, Guard, Magnetic, Ingot Silver, and Ruby Red.  Also available is a tri-coat ‘Triple Yellow’ for £795.

Performance figures haven’t been released, but economy ranges from 35.3 mpg for the EcoBoost manual to 20.9 mpg for the V8.  Curiously, the V8 auto is more economical at 23.5 mpg.

The new Mustang is available to order only from selected Ford Stores.  UK deliveries are expected to start late autumn.
