Spy shots show next-generation Mustang testing in America

The next-generation Ford Mustang has been spotted testing in America.

The Mustang, due on sale in 2015, was spied in an early stage of testing and heavily camouflaged. In partcular the roofline is heavily covered, perhaps hinting at significant changes to the current roof design.

Ford has already promised that the next incarnation of its iconic Mustang will be available with right-hand drive, satisfying UK enthusiasts who have called for such a move for years.

A modified 2.3-litre version of the 2.0-litre unit found in the Focus ST will power the European Mustang range. Insiders think the modified version of the engine will endow the Mustang with around 300bhp.

Who the hell wants to see "spy shots" of a car in a bag?

I read on another site (Autoblog.com) that the engine would deliver 350 bhp which should make it pretty quick

Really want to see the new design. I hate the car bag.

The is not much point to RHD if we dont get a V8. A small 4 pot turbo just wont do. They might as well stick a diesel in it if all they are bothered about is selling more of them over here

Dunno about the rest of you but the new 2015 Mustang worries me no end, a four cylinder version is far too reminiscent of the 1974 Mustang II even the V8 version of that pushed out about 105BHP I hope that history doesn't repeat itself again

Maybe they will offer the 5.0 and the 2.3 ecoboost. I'm sure the ecoboost is going to be a fine motor but I will trade mine for another 5.0. Can't wait to see the S550 Mustang.

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK
