As you may know from our previous reports, Ford opened the order books for the 2015 Mustang during the UEFA Champions League final match. Turns out nobody was watching the football game, as the ordering website registered more than 9,300 people trying to buy the new muscle car.
Unfortunately, there were only 500 units of 2015 Ford Mustang available for Europe in the first phase, and all of them were gone within just 30 seconds. It was a first-come, first-served sort of deal, so whoever clicked faster got the chance to get a brand-new Mustang. The 500 new Mustangs were allocated across 20 countries.
The models available for the Europeans at this stage include fastback models in Race Red and convertible models in Magnetic Silver. They could also chose between a 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine with more than 309 PS and 407 Nm of torque; or the 5.0-litre V8 engine with 426 PS and 529 Nm of torque. The V6-powered 2015 Ford Mustang is not offered in the green continent.
Notable options you can choose for a 2015 ‘Stang include SYNC 2 connectivity and navigation system; heated and ventilated seats; Park Assist; black leather trim; chrome detailing; and 19-inch alloy wheels.
“We knew there was huge excitement building for the new Ford Mustang coming to Europe, but the response during the UCL Final was overwhelming,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “It was a truly special way to kick off the Ford Mustang era in Europe.”
