The Ford Mustang is now officially available for purchase in Hungary. We started getting acquainted with the V8 right away – writes

It cloaks its true dimensions well, black is the real hiding color: it is only noticed by anyone who moves in the same direction as it. It’s a shame because there’s something to look at, the discs are embossed in just the right place and to the right extent, everywhere we see references to the first generation of Ford Mustang – mostly in the form of badges. I was also confronted with the 190-inch height of myself reflecting the world in front of the car on the horizontal hood, so I immediately enjoyed the racing landscape, which is disturbing only at sunrise or sunset, but so are the sunglasses… The mechanical leather armchairs the memory function has been omitted from a recline, if someone comes back in, we can re-adjust the tilt angle.

First, everyone marvels at the dashboard: anyone who knows the original Mustang recognizes the shape in broad lines (if nothing else, the inscription Since 1964 in front of the passenger reveals it), and even the German car fanatic praises the American interior. True, with some kind of hurtful courtesy:

there are so many retro inserts on the dashboard that it doesn’t seem to have saved on soft plastics…

The arrangement of the center console switches is chaotic

The center console is simple and complex, on the one hand the touch screen head unit, which is clear and fast to use even without sound control in Hungarian, and on the other hand the climate panel, which is not only complex in appearance but also in behavior. Air control means that only the windscreen can be blown separately, the airflow to the body can be stopped by closing the vents, the footwell is constantly ventilated when the air conditioning goes on and the internal circulation switches on and off from time to time while driving.

The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 only evokes the old days in terms of stroke volume and cylinder number. Compared to the previous 4.6-liter version, the aluminum block casting is reinforced with mesh stiffeners, despite the 11.0: 1 compression ratio, it also operates reliably with 87 octane gasoline, four valves per cylinder and two overhead camshafts per cylinder control the gas exchange. exhaust side is also variable control.

The result is 421 horsepower and 530 Nm on paper, in practice a sound that makes a goosebumps.

The great bubbling sound pulls out into a real invigorating roar, the down-speed is 7000; we run into this in a matter of moments. In this case, the lighting of the instrument unit turns red, but we don’t have to worry about it now – a 6-speed automatic switch is on at this time. There are shift control tabs on the steering wheel, but outside of the engine brake, one doesn’t really feel the need to get involved, things are professional and the structure works quickly.

The shape is downright bombastic and the power is right, but with a four-cylinder engine, the Mustang convertible remains a big promise – writes
