The word Mustang conjures up the image of a wild horse. These are very abundant in the canyons of America and are associated with speed and power. The Ford design team in the 1960s, when they came up with a name for their “muscle car,” came up with the Mustang as a name for it. The car made its debut and set the car charts on fire. Now six decades have passed and the iconic car is still in production and sold in large numbers around the world. The car is presented in India and for those who are interested in knowing or buying it, it costs 95 lakhs rupees on the road in Mumbai.
I bought a Mustang about 3 years ago and have been using it ever since.
It is a convertible model and the roof can be removed for an exhilarating ride. Keep in mind that anything over 150 MPH with the roof down can be like adrenaline in the blood. The Mustang has been dubbed the original “Muscle Car” by car enthusiasts. This is due to the immense power it has under the hood. It is available in two engine specifications, namely the V-6 and the V-8, which means 6 and 8 cylinders. The V-8 is rated at 396 BHP and a top speed of 200 MPH. I personally drove the Mustang at 180 MPH and the car just sped away without a trace of a wave.
The car comes as a convertible and coupe and has only two doors. The model introduced in India is a coupe and the pleasure of driving with the roof down cannot be savored.
The Mustang is a low-rise car and once you get into the driver’s seat, one will have the idea that you are hugging the road. This is unavoidable as it is a racing car and the designers have designed it to keep the drag coefficient low. The car has a six-speed automatic transmission that, in addition to a high BHP of over 300, develops torque at 280 to 4000 RPM. Automatic transmission is a must for such a car, so that the driver can focus only on driving the car and not worry about changing gears.
The car I have has 18-inch alloy wheels and manual air conditioning. Frankly, if the hood is raised, you don’t need air conditioning as the wind whistles around your ear. The bucket seats are very comfortable and can accommodate 4 adults. The car has a cruising speed of about 100 MPH, but sadly the car cannot be run at that speed in India, except perhaps on the Pune-Panvel highway. Perhaps the Agra-Delhi highway as well. But you can still navigate the city as it has an extremely powerful engine and the driving is effortless and will certainly make people’s eyes turn, even more so if you have an attractive passenger in the front. Lastly, yes, the Mustang is a great advertisement for the owner to hold onto a pretty girl for company.
The Mustang is one of America’s flagship cars and shows that the American auto industry is still the best in the world.
