You would have thought that of all the things in the world the new Ford Mustang didn't need, it was a new name tag.
And if that’s not confusing enough, there are the differences between the Mustangs with Performance Packs, those with Handling Packs and the variants sold in the US and those heading in our direction.
I will try my best to clear the fog for you. Right now, the Dark Horse is the only tuned version of the new seventh-generation Mustang there is. Shelbys will definitely come, as will many, some or more of the others, but that’s all for the future. And when I say seventh-generation Mustang, read heavily facelifted sixth-generation Mustang, whose standout feature, common to all 'Stangs, is a much improved though still hardly plush interior with a two large digital screens where once there were real instruments.
The Dark Horse will cost around £61,000, adding about £10,000 to the price of the standard V8 Mustang GT when both go on sale in the UK early next year.
There's no four-cylinder turbo Ecoboost version of either car. I’m over it, too.
