Our 550 km long drive in the Pony made us realise how practical it is

Verdict – Our Goa to Bangalore drive in the Ford Mustang has made us realise and explore a new dimension of performance car driving on Indian highways. Yes, most of the sports cars available in India are not capable of doing such long distances on roads like ours. But surprisingly the Ford Mustang is a multi-faceted car that can be enjoyed on a race track, used on a daily basis and is practical enough for long drives in India. Yes, compared to the international market the price tag seems to be on the higher side but in Indian context, it is a sports car that offers good bang for your buck with that heavenly V8 engine and the feel good factor of owning the Pony car.

That aggression on the face catches a lot of attention on the road

What’s Cool

* Versatile driving dynamics suitable for the track, city driving as well as highway driving
* The Line Lock system is a unique and interesting feature that helps you do burnouts easily

What’s Not So Cool
