This is the new Ford Mustang, which has been spotted testing in the US.

These first spy shots show a heavily disguised test mule with revised front end styling. The headlights have been moved sidewards, which allows space for the much wider grille.

Overall, however, the design of the new Mustang is an evolution of the current fastback shape.

Its dimensions are likely to be slightly reduced, however, as the forthcoming model will be the first to be sold in the UK, and will come with a full right-hand-drive conversion.

It will be the first sporty two-door in Ford UK’s line-up since the demise of the Cougar in 2002.

The new Mustang is also likely to get fully independent rear suspension in place of the current car’s live axle, to make it more competitive against European performance rivals.
