2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback Manual Review

The 2016 Ford Mustang GT coupe V8 with a manual gearbox, that stirs the soul most of all. Well, our petrolhead souls anyway. Of course, this Mustang is not merely trading on a legendary image and the company’s past reticence to make it right-hand drive. It also stacks up on paper as a genuine performance bargain irrespective of badge.

The car you see here kicks off at $57,490 plus on-road costs. For that, you get a rear-wheel drive V8 performance coupe. Name another new car on the market doing that at present. You can’t, because there isn’t one. It’s such a shame General Motors won’t give us Camaro, yet.

Couple that to the right badge and the most road presence of any car south of six-figures (based purely on the amount of people who stop and point) and half the battle is won already. That order list starts making sense.

It really does look a million dollars, especially in gun-metal grey with black 19-inch wheels. The rear lights (without sequential indicators, unfortunately) surrounded by embossed black, are particularly menacing. As is the GT branding, since there’s not a single Ford badge on the car’s body. The Pony projector lights that splash onto the pavement at night from projectors under the rear-view mirror are pure drama.
