Yup, you heard that right, the GT variant. The fastback is propelled towards the horizon by a 5.0-litre V8 making 410bhp and 530Nm in the UK model, but…for India, this block will come in a detuned state pumping out 395bhp and 515Nm of peak torque. More than adequate, we say. Driving the rear wheels only will be a six-speed automatic gearbox equipped with flappy paddles. It’s a bit too early for the performance figures but still, the 2+2 coupe is expected to sprint from 0-100kph in a little over 5 seconds and on to a top speed of 250kph.
Drama will come standard with the Mustang GT as it comes with Electronic Line Lock; a feature that allows the wheels to spin freely for 15 seconds (read burnout). Launch control is also present to allow for fast getaways from the start line or just when you’re in the mood to show off at traffic lights. Also, depending on the situation and driving conditions there are four driving modes available: Normal (for everyday driving), Snow/Wet (handy during monsoons), Sport (for the occasional spirited drive) and Track (for your weekend trip to the racetrack).
Onlookers and passers-by will be able to instantly tell that this is the top-spec model as it comes with 19-inch alloy wheels, GT badge on the bootlid and a “5.0” affixed on the front wings (Oh, and it also helps that there is only one variant on sale). This pony will be laden with tech such as Limited Slip Differential (LSD), ESP, HID headlamps and a Brembo performance braking system.
The interior will be well equipped with a SYNC 2 infotainment system accessible via an 8.0-inch touchscreen, 9-speaker audio system, six-way power adjustable front seats, dual-zone auto climate control, keyless entry, rearview camera, ambient lighting, bucket seats and a leather wrapped multifunction steering wheel.
The price? That will be officially revealed on the 12th of this month. But, if we were to assume, we’d peg its price around the Rs 75 lakh mark.Source : TopGear.com
