Ford Motor Company has delivered the global debut of a motoring icon that is set to go on sale in Europe for the first time - the new Ford Mustang.

The new Ford will be the first Mustang to go on sale in Europe following almost 50 years of production in the US.

Fastback and convertible models promise world-class levels of performance and refinement, with sleek design that retains iconic Mustang design elements recognisable to car fans across Europe.

New Mustang will deliver power of choice in Europe, from 5.0-litre V8 engine to the all-new, fuel-efficient 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine, and has been developed with performance, driving dynamics and usability in mind.

In addition to unveiling the new Mustang, Executive Chairman Bill Ford also presented the company's Blueprint for Mobility and outlined Ford's global and European market progress.

He was joined by Barb Samardzich, Chief Operating Officer, Ford of Europe, who delivered an insight into Ford's plans to continue forging a path as a global technology leader.
