About the Ford Mustang Thrill

Since its launch in 1965, the Ford Mustang has become one of the world’s most recognisable sports coupes and an iconic American muscle car and star of one of the best car chases on film in Bullitt. Steve McQueen flies around San Francisco in a 1968 Mustang 390 GT. Now in its 6th generation Thruxton have the latest version of the famous V8 Coupe which produces much more power than even the largest 7 litre cars from the late 60’s but more importantly now has a sophisticated 21st Century chassis with a multi-link rear axle and Brembo brakes.

As soon as you start the new Mustang, you will fire up a range of advanced technologies and 444hp of pure American muscle. The active valve exhaust systems allow you to experience even more of the big V8’s character. The wide open smooth sweeps of Thruxton give an ideal opportunity to experience by far the most capable and complete Ford Mustang and now that it is an official UK car, the steering wheel is on the right side!
