The first allotment of sixth-generation Ford Mustang pony cars has already sold out in India, reports The Hindu Business Line, just days after its official launch in the market less than two weeks ago.
This generation of Ford Mustang marks the first time that Ford has offered a factory right-hand drive version, opening the car up to more than two-dozen new markets, including India. Unlike most markets, though, India is only being offered the V8-powered GT model, paired exclusively with a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic and a standard Performance Pack.
It’s unknown how large India’s initial allotment of Ford Mustang units was, but based on the scarcity faced by other right-hand drive countries like Australia and the UK, hopeful buyers may have to face a lengthy wait. The pony car costs somewhere north of Rs 65 lakh (about $97k US) in India, after regional pricing differences and on-road costs are taken into account, making it much more a product reserved for the well-to-do than it necessarily is in the United States.
The right-hand drive Ford Mustang is built at the same Flat Rock, Michigan plant as the regular left-hand drive model.
