It has been a while since the Ford Mustang came to India. It is a vehicle that people associate American Muscle cars with. It is one of the major cars that started the trend of muscle cars and made Ford what it is today. Many people were excited when it was first launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 75 lakhs ex-showroom. However, still for many people it was out of budget. Now, you can find some Mustangs in the pre-owned market. But here is one which is selling for a price of a Toyota Fortuner.
The ad is posted on OLX and the seller’s name is MD Cars. You can get in touch with them by clicking here to get more information about the vehicle.
It is a red coloured Mustang GT, which was manufactured in December 2017 and it does look really good in this shade. It also comes with blacked-out multi-spoke alloy wheels. The vehicle is registered in Karnataka but the seller is located in Hyderabad. The advertisement says that the vehicle has covered just 12,000 km which is very less considering it is a 3 year old car. So, it looks like the car has been sitting for quite a long time.
From the pictures we can see that there are no scratches or dents on the body work and the car is also clean. So, the seller must have taken good care of the vehicle. The advertisement states that the Mustang is covered by Comprehensive insurance and is still a first-owner vehicle which is a good thing.
The seller is demanding Rs. 47.56 lakhs and at this price it makes the Mustang a very appealing deal. However, we would say that the vehicle should come with a proper service record and it should be maintained properly because finding spare parts and servicing these exotic sports cars is expensive and you would have to pay a lot of money in repairing them if you end up buying a wrong one.
Speaking of the Mustang GT, it was only offered in one variant by Ford in India. The Mustang is known for its old-school, naturally aspirated 5.0-litre V8. The massive petrol engine produces 396 Bhp at 6,500 rpm and peak torque of 515 Nm at 4,250 Nm. It was only offered with a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that delivered all that power to the rear wheels only. Braking duties are done by disc brakes in the front and at the rear.
Despite being a sports car, the Mustang GT is equipped with a lot of equipment. It comes with cooled and heated seats, ambient lighting, 6-way electric adjustment for driver seat, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, HID headlamps, LED tail lamps, auto-dimming interior rear view mirror and much more. There is also quite a bit of safety equipment such as side and curtain airbags, dual airbags, ABS, ISOFIX child seat mounts, , tyre pressure monitoring system, hill hold control, traction control, stability program and much more.
