Ford has announced the production of the right-hand drive Ford Mustang has begun at Flatrock Assembly Plant in Michigan, North America.

What’s more important, the Blue oval also says almost 2,000 UK orders for the sports vehicle have been received since January. This is the first time in the model’s 50-year history that it is offered in a right-hand configuration.

So far, 80% of customers have opted for the fastback body style over the convertible and 70% have selected the 416 PS 5.0-liter V8 engine over the 317 PS 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The six-speed manual transmission is the slightly more popular choice over the six-speed automatic (55% - 45%).

In terms of equipment, over half of UK Mustangs have been specified with the Custom Pack which includes a satellite navigation, a Shaker Pro 12-speaker audio system, heated and cooled front seats, a rear view camera, Luster Nickel silver alloy wheels and extra chrome detailing on fastback models.

The new Mustang is available to order in the UK from 29,995 GBP for the EcoBoost models and 33,995 GBP for the V8 versions.
