Ford Mustang review – design

Ford didn't hold back on the design of the Mustang, appealing to its retro heritage, while still appearing contemporary. In a sea of BMW 4-series and Audi A5s the Mustang will definitely get you noticed

  • Looks, noise, performance
  • Dynamically limited as the road becomes challenging - awful automatic transmission

Even though it has had time now to become a familiar sight on UK roads, the Mustang still turns heads like few others, with a friendlier reaction than one might usually get in ‘normal’ sports and supercars as a bonus. Everyone loves the Mustang, and the latest aesthetic updates have just sharpened its aggressive, yet approachable good looks.

One perfect example is from a sandwich shop nearby the evo offices. Turn up in a Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche, anything like that and the only feedback is whether we would like a can of coke with our order. Turn up in even a subtly specced silver Mustang convertible, and it’s the talk of the day. Uncanny.

The Bullitt is a new addition to the range, is only available in black or dark green and features a raft of slick retro-inspired details that aren’t available in the UK separately (the US market has far more personalisation options available than the UK). Set off with black wheels, red brake calipers and chrome brightwork around the windows, the combination looks especially aggressive, and is a worthwhile addition.
