Ford Motor Co. plans to develop a right-hand-drive variant of the Ford Mustang when it is redesigned for its 50th anniversary in 2014, according to a report by Australian daily Herald Sun. The report said the right-hand-drive version of Ford Mustang will sold for the first time in the United Kingdom, Australia and other countries. 

The daily said that since the right-hand-drive Mustang is seen to account for fewer than 10 percent of the model’s global sales, Ford will sell it is as many markets as possible to offset additional engineering costs associated with its development.

The UK is seen to become the largest market for the right-hand-drive Mustang, followed by Australia, Herald Sun reported, adding that Jim Farley, Ford's executive vice president of global marketing, sales and service, plans to fly to the Land Down Under on Aug. 13 to unveil plans for such model.

The daily said that the 2015 Mustang is expected to be unveiled at the 2014 New York auto show. Confidential sources confirmed to News Corp. Australia that "Mustang is a goer," according to the Herald Sun.

The Ford Mustang is set to replace the Falcon as the carmaker’s performance vehicle in Australia, wherein the company is planning to shut down car and engine sites after decades of manufacturing in the country.  Ford Australia plans to sell only V-8 performance models of the next Mustang, but some countries will get a four-cylinder version of the redesigned model. Ford is building the Mustang at its Flat Rock assembly site in Michigan.
