This orange beast is the fastback model with a 5.0 liter V8 engine producing 435 PS and 528 Nm of torque. We understand that Sime Darby Auto Connexion is considering bringing its fastback and convertible body styles for sale here, as well as the 2.3-litre four-cylinder Ecoboost engine that produces 314 PS and 434 Nm of torque.
It’s a stunning machine that’s every bit as intimidating in the flesh as in the pictures, with blackened rims and, thankfully, a manual gearbox in the model being shown to complement the six-speed automatic that will also be offered. With that automatic transmission option, the Mustang can sprint from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds with the 5.0 V8 engine and the 2.3L Ecoboost hits that figure in 5.3 seconds.
It is suspected to launch in Malaysia at the end of 2015, finally being made available in right-hand drive markets (pictured here is a left-hand drive version) – it will also be hitting the shores of Australia and the UK, in addition to ours. As for pricing, nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but we understand that SDAC are surveying the potential of asking between RM350k to RM400k for the 2.3-litre EcoBoost variant, and between RM550,000 to RM600,000 for the range-topping V8.
The preview will be running between today, Wednesday, 11th March until Sunday, the 15th of March.
