At the heart of the Mustang is likely to be the acclaimed 5.0-litre V8 engine that can comfortably dish out 435bhp of power along with 524Nm of peak torque and comes paired to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters. The iconic car, which is set to open its Indian chapter, is likely to be offered in the GT variant in the country. Earlier, the Mustang GT Premium Fastback was spotted at the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), Pune, for government approvals.

The Mustang is expected to boast automatic HID headlamps, LED fog lamps, LED tail lamps and rear diffuser as standard fittings.
