Review: Ford Mustang (2005 – 2014)


Evocative looks, entertaining drive and wonderful exhaust note. 4.6 GT manual convertible best of the lot.

Left-hand drive only and available in Europe as an independent import only.

What's the Ford Mustang (2005 – 2014) like to drive?

Fairly crude, but fun with a wonderful warble and much better handling than the Mustang engined Rover 75 V8.

What cars would you recommend as possible future classics?

What cars would you recommend as possible future classics? They must be automatic and reasonable to maintain.
You could have a look at a Mercedes-Benz SL (R107) although these are expensive now. Maybe a P38 Range Rover or a Bentley Arnage Red Label. If you'd like to go a bit more modern, then perhaps one of the first Audi TTs with the DSG box like the 2003 3.2 is an option (although the boxes are fragile) or something like a Smart Roadster. Also worth a look might be an American muscle car like a Mustang, or you could go for a high-performance model like a BMW M3 or Mercedes-Benz AMG. Feeling flush? Then how about a Nissan GT-R.
