Will be launched in Q2 2016.

The first batch of Ford Mustangs has been spied in India by TeamBHP forum member aravind.anand. Three units were spotted at what looks like Ford's Sanand plant in Gujarat. Supporting the speculation is an import listing from Zauba stating that 4 units were imported from USA and were unloaded in Mumbai.

India will get only the Ford Mustang Fastback (coupe version).

The Zauba listing further reveals the specifications as well. As expected, India is getting the 2016 Ford Mustang GT coupe only. It's powered by a 5.0-litre Ti-VCT naturally aspirated V8 engine that produces 435 hp and 542 Nm of torque. A 6-speed manual transmission is available internationally, but India will get only the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.

It's worth noting that India gets the Euro-spec model, not the North American one. It doesn't have the tri-bar daytime running lights, hood vents, sleek mirrors and red taillights with sequential turn indicators. More will be known about this when Ford showcases the retail version at the market launch.

In the U.S. market, the 2016 Ford Mustang GT Fastback is priced at US$32,395 which converts to INR 21,56,938. As it will be imported as a CBU in India, it will be priced well over INR 50 lakhs. Ford India has confirmed that the sixth generation and the very first right-hand drive Mustang will be launched in India in Q2 2016.
