The Mustang Unleashed collection is a series of limited-edition T-shirts, available in 15 different styles. Five designers from around the world each created three unique Mustang-inspired shirts, available exclusively through Gilt.com from September.

The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s global vehicle line up will allow the iconic pony car to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world, including the United Kingdom.

“Mustang is and will continue to be an automotive icon,” said Joe Hinrichs,Ford president of The Americas. “Expanding its availability globally affords our customers around the world the opportunity to have a true first hand Mustang experience – one unlike any other.”

The Ford Mustang’s impact goes well beyond the more than 9.2 million cars sold in its 50 years of continuous production. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is the most-liked vehicle on Facebook, with close to 8 million likes.

The 435hp, 5.0-litre V8 is joined by an all-new 310hp, 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine that brings state-of-the-art technology to Mustang.

The 2015 Ford Mustang features all-new front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a new perimeter subframe helps to stiffen the structure while reducing mass, providing a better foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering and ride.

At the rear is an all-new integral-link independent suspension. Geometry, springs, dampers and bushings are all specially tuned for this high-performance application. New aluminium rear knuckles help reduce unsprung mass for improved ride and handling.
