The first all-new Ford Mustang rolls off the line today at Ford’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant, marking production of the sixth-generation pony car. For the first time in its 50-year history, Mustang will be available globally to customers in more than 120 countries around the world, and Ford has teamed up with five top fashion designers to mark the occasion. The Mustang Unleashed collection is a series of limited-edition T-shirts, available in 15 different styles. Five designers from around the world each created three unique Mustang-inspired shirts, available exclusively through Gilt.com from September.

The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s global vehicle line up will allow the iconic pony car to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world, including India. “Mustang is and will continue to be an automotive icon,” said Joe Hinrichs,Ford President of The Americas. “Expanding its availability globally affords our customers around the world the opportunity to have a true first hand Mustang experience – one unlike any other.”

The Ford Mustang’s impact goes well beyond the more than 9.2 million cars sold in its 50 years of continuous production. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is the most-liked vehicle on Facebook, with close to 8 million likes. The 435bhp, 5.0-litre V8 is joined by an all-new 310bhp, 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that brings state-of-the-art technology to Mustang. The 2015 Ford Mustang features all-new front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a new perimeter subframe helps to stiffen the structure while reducing mass, providing a better foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering and ride.

At the rear is an all-new integral-link independent suspension. Geometry, springs, dampers and bushings are all specially tuned for this high-performance application. New aluminium rear knuckles help reduce unsprung mass for improved ride and handling.
