Ford Mustang

Ford Mustang

It would appear that Ford's designers are looking backwards a great deal - the 2005 model year Mustang takes all its cues in the original 1964 Mustang that single-handedly invented an entire market sector for sports cars depending on mediocre saloons.

The brand new model might seem like the old car, but in common with Ford GT the nostalgic styling conceals a thoroughly modern driveline. There is a V6 engine in entry-level models, but that’s for cissies; true fans will be purchasing the excellent V8 version, using its 304PS V8 along with a five speed manual gearbox.

Best news of all may be the value for money that the car represents - cars start at a cheaper $19,000 as well as the V8 is just $28,800.
