When the UEFA Champions League final between Real Madrid CF and Club Atlético de Madrid kicks off on May 24 it will also mark a moment for which Ford Mustang fans in the UK have been waiting a very long time.
Ford has announced that the first 500 new Mustang models for Europe will be made available to reserve from the start of the game.
Ford has been an official UEFA Champions League partner since 1992. This year the final in Lisbon, Portugal, is expected to attract a Europe-wide audience of 70 million football fans and 165 million people around the world.
Both fastback and convertible Mustang models are available; the fastback in Race Red and the convertible in Magnetic Silver; and can be equipped with Ford’s all-new 2.3-litre EcoBoost that has a projected output of more than 309PS and 407Nm of torque; or the 5.0 litre V8 engine – with more than 426PS and 529Nm of torque.
They will also offer Ford’s SYNC 2 connectivity and navigation system; heated and ventilated seats; Park Assist; black leather trim; chrome detailing; and 19in alloy wheels.
Consumers can visit www.ford.com to view information, graphics and videos about the new Mustang and the iconic car’s 50-year heritage. During the match they will have the chance to register their details for an opportunity to purchase one of the 500 models that will include a special package and a limited-edition certificate.
The new Ford Mustang will be the first ever to be officially made available in the UK in right-hand drive when it goes on sale next year.
