Ford introduced the legendary Mustang muscle car in India last year. The vehicle has gone on to become the highest selling sports car, selling over 250 units in the 10 months it has been on sale here. The first lot got sold out almost immediately. Ever since the iconic vehicle was launched, many stars themselves have picked one up. Here are 7 such Mustang owners from India:
Karun Nair, the cricketer who scored a triple ton and the one that put up quiet a show in this years IPL has a Mustang too. What’s more is that he has opted for a special number which reads 303, which is the score he managed, that too being not out.
The Mustang is one vehicle that has really caught the attention of most buyers who want a sporty car with a piece of history, yet not wanting to spend a lot of money. The Mustang is powered by a 5.0 liter V8 that produces 396 Bhp and 515 Nm.
Rohit Shetty not only has a Mustang, but he also has India’s first modified Mustang. Mods include a custom new wrap, done by the famous D.A.D in Mumbai. It also features a new grille and a new bonnet with larger air scoop.
