The UK Is Crazy About The New Mustang And Here's All The Proof You Need

Sales

America's car has found a new home.

For the first time in history Ford is offering the Mustang, as in the all-American muscle car, for sale in the UK. Many are wondering just how the Mustang will do in England. The country isn’t exactly known for loving big V8s and convertibles. So, is the right-hand drive Mustang destined to fail? It doesn’t seem so, at least not according to a report from Autocar. The British outlet says orders are already full through July of 2016. Yes, there’s already a waiting list of one year.

This news wasn’t dropped by an anonymous, nameless insider but instead came straight from the mouth of Ford of Britain boss Andy Barratt. Despite the waiting list Barratt is encouraging prospective buyers to head into dealerships and place their orders, saying “I will do my very best to ensure we look after every single customer in the right way." The Mustang will be offered in both fastback and convertible styles and will be powered by either a 5.0-liter V8 or the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. It seems like the demand, at least initially, for the Mustang is there. What remains to be seen then, is if Brits prefer big V8s or turbocharged four-bangers.
