The name Mustang brings back fond memories, and the new Mustang simply excites! The 2008 Ford Mustang V6 Deluxe Coupe is a two-door wonder. Its powerful 4 liter, 12-valve engine with a horsepower of 210, going up to 26 mpg on highways is enough for a long, smooth drive. With seating for 4 people, the car seems about okay initially, but is magnificent on the road. Its breathtakingly stately wide and low stance is enough to thrill the ardent car lover. The new Mustang retains the class of its predecessor and adds an identity of its own. It is heroically robust, yet very stylish with cool 18 inch wheels.
The safety features are up-to-date, with disc brakes for 4 wheels, dual stage airbags in the front, a SecuriLock ignition system (anti theft and passive). The car gives good control on the road. The v6 Mustang comes with an optional Pony package which gives a larger stabilizer bar up front (GT handling), a rear stabilizer as well as improvised cast aluminum wheels with a good finish.
The manual transmission offers a 5 speed output while there is the option of automatic transmission as well, for the choosy driver. The car comes with 3 cool new colors and the exteriors are very good. The rear driven power shows on the test drive. The high intensity discharge headlamps are certainly a pleasant surprise. The ambient package for the interiors comes with 7 unique colors for the rear and front foot-well. There are power door and window locks, as well as an audio mp3 system for entertainment, lit entry, comfortable air conditioner, keyless, remote entry and not to forget, the power side mirrors.
