Ford already announced that the 2015 Mustang will arrive as a global car, which means that for the first time ever the company will offer a right-hand-drive version.

The American car manufacturer revealed today the first right-hand-drive version of the 2015 Mustang as the prototype will be used for various tests in preparation for the car’s debut.

Ford’s all-new 2015 Mustang will arrive with a choice of three engines: a 5.0-liter V8, a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost and a 3.7-liter V6. The 5.0-liter V8 engine develops 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, while the 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder generates 310 hp and 320 pb-ft. Meanwhile, the 3.7-liter V6 engine pumps out 300 hp and 280 lb-ft.

In the United States, the 2015 Ford Mustang starts at $25,995, while the 2015 Mustang GT starts at $32,925. The 2015 Ford Mustang GT 50 Year Limited Edition costs $46,996. As an option, Ford offers the GT Performance Package for $2,495, Navigation ($795), floor mats ($85), leather Recaro sport seats ($1,595) and Enhanced Security Package ($395).

"While the United States is the largest market for Mustang with more than 9.2 million sales since the car’s debut in 1964, more than 161,000 Mustangs have been sold outside of North America in that time. In 2012 alone, more than 4,000 Mustangs were sold in 35 countries outside of North America, ranging from the United Arab Emirates to Chile to the Philippines." said the press release. [source: Ford]
