After 50 years and five model-generations, Ford's iconic "pony" will finally be available in right-hand-drive for markets such as Singapore. The handsome sixth-generation Mustang comes with a right-size engine, too - a turbocharged 2.3-litre EcoBoost 4-cylinder.
With the other engine choice being a beefy 5-litre V8, the inline-4 is like the French fries of a Big Mac meal. But the output of the 2.3-litre is surprisingly big - 310bhp and 434Nm. On a horsepower-per-litre basis, this is Ford's most powerful production engine today.
