Mustang GT's Touch Of Glass

Tuesday 21st January 2003

Ever since Ford's legendary Mustang first arrived in 1964 there has been a coupé and convertible version. Last week we showed you the latest incarnation of the roadster - and now here's its equally stunning tin-topped sister: the Mustang GT coupé. As with the convertible, it's powered by a 400bhp supercharged 4.6-litre V8 engine. However, rather than using an automatic gearbox, power is fed to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission.

The car's roof panels have been made from glass, but that's not the only departure from tradition. Mustang coupés of yesteryear had a 2+2 seating configuration, yet this new car is a strict two-seater. Both convertible and coupé versions ride on 20-inch alloy wheels, which are anchored by massive Brembo brake calipers. The cars also feature an innovative headlamp system which has camera-like adjustable lenses at the front, while the light beam itself is projected along a fibre optic ribbon. The road-going versions of the two new models are expected to arrive in the US in late 2004.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
