One of the first European tinted reviews...
Right. The big news is that the Mustang gets an independent rear suspension for the first time (if you don't count the SVT Cobra). But that is just the beginning of the handling story for this car. It's not going too far to say that this chassis is one of the best Ford has ever produced, anywhere in the world.
In the spec we'll get in the UK - which in the US would require optioning a performance pack - this Mustang is fabulously neutral, controlled, amazingly well damped and exactly what you want underneath you. It's a tiny bit harsh on some bigger bumps, but road noise is low, the steering is direct - especially in Sport mode, one of three switchable choices available - and it's a lot of fun to drive
when it comes to handling the Euro's know a thing or two...
