2016 Ford Mustang: Australian Hands On

The Mustang is an iconic car. In Australia, we’ve rarely seen it outside of films like Bullitt, Gone In 60 Seconds and the new Need For Speed — the last locally delivered model was the relatively unpopular 2001 4.6-litre, and companies like Performax charge upwards of $100,000 for right-hand-drive conversions of US-delivered variants. Now, in 2016, the first made-for-Australia version of the Ford Mustang is here — it’s launching this week, starting at under $46,000.

Ford Wants To Turn Your Car's Back Wheel Into A Batpod

Ford Is Using Gorilla Glass On Its New GT

The new Ford GT is a very high-tech vehicle. It eschews the previous GTs’ fuel-sucking, supercharged V8s for a far more efficient twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, for one. It’s made almost entirely from hand-laid carbon fibre, rather than comparatively heavy aluminium and steel. Since the GT is destined for Le Mans endurance racing, it has to be light. One of the most interesting weight-saving measures is windows made out of Gorilla Glass, the same toughened material covering your smartphone’s display.
