Ford has presented the Euro-spec Mustang during the Paris Motor Show.

The model will go on sale across the continent in 2015 in fastback and convertible variants. This will happen for the first time after 50 years of production. The manufacturer says the car brings “world-class levels of performance and refinement”, while “embracing the Mustang’s half-century of heritage and status as a global icon”.

In Europe the sports vehicle will be offered with two engines – the 5.0-liter V8 with 420 bhp (313 kW) and 390 lb-ft (528 Nm) of torque and the 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo unit generating 305 bhp (227 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. It also features all-new front and rear suspension systems, performance brakes and standard 19-inch wheels.

The new Mustang will be among the first Ford vehicles in Europe to offer the SYNC 2, the company’s new infotainment system that is equipped with an 8-inch touch screen and advanced voice control.
