The Mustang’s exterior features plenty of retro touches to the rear and nose, along with an expanded bonnet and brawny wheel arches. It also sports headlamps with LED tri-bar tail lamps and dual exhaust pipes as standard. Design features like wide shoulders, lengthy bonnet and raked roofline gives the car a muscular look.
Fastback GT hard-top

Aviation inspired interior
The Mustang gets an aviation-inspired cabin complete with airplane-like toggle switches on the centre console. It also has features like leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio and speed controls, bucket seats, an 8.0-inch SYNC2 touchscreen infotainment system, and ambient lighting.

For India, Ford has launched the Mustang with the 5.0-litre V8 mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. While the motor is capable of developing up to 426hp, the engine for India has been tuned to develop 401hp. The India-spec Mustang also comes with a special performance pack as standard equipment which will include a limited-slip sports differential and four driving modes, namely Normal, Sport+, Track and Wet.
