When it comes to pony cars, the Ford Mustang will be the first car to consciously (and unconsciously) cross the mind of a true car enthusiast. Especially when talking about the Ford ‘true’ Mustang that has a large performance engine.
Okay before discussing the Ford Mustang GT V8 2018, we would like to invite you to take a quick look at the wild horse from Michigan, United States. First introduced in 1964 ago in New York, United States, the Ford Mustang began to be known as a United States sports car that has a cool appearance plus impressive performance. No doubt this car is named in the world of motorsport because it has tasted the bitter rivalry on the NASCAR race track, the 24 Hours of Daytona, the FIA GT3 European Championship, and many more prestigious global class racing events.
Even the Ford Mustang often exists in more than hundreds of Hollywood films and box offices, one of which is the James Bond agent car, played by Sean Connery in the Goldfinger film (1964) and the Lt car. Frank Bullitt, played by Steve McQueen in the film Bullitt (1968).
Counted six generations of Ford Mustang present in the world, where the last generation aka the sixth generation Ford Mustang was introduced globally in 2015.
Although it’s already the sixth generation, this is the first generation of the Ford Mustang which was first produced directly from the manufacturer in the right steering format, so that it can be enjoyed in several automotive markets with the right steering wheel configuration. So what does the ‘true’ Ford Mustang feel like now available in the right steering version?
FORD EXTERIOR MUSTANG 2018
The 2018 Ford Mustang GT V8 that you see at the moment is a facelift version that was carried out in 2017. In appearance there are some details that distinguish the car that you see today with the sixth-generation Ford Mustang pre-facelift. To be clearer, we will reveal in terms of the front, side, and rear exterior.
One thing that needs to be appreciated from the look of the Ford Mustang GT V8 2018 is how the exterior appearance of this car feels very sporty and dashing. Breaking down the design of a more sporty front bumper combined with a trapezoidal shaped grille with a honeycomb accent as if to characterize this car as a sports car. Especially if you see the hood that is now packaged more swooping and presents with a double scoop water grille.
For the tri-bar section headlight and the projector from the Ford Mustang already using LED technology. In addition, the turn signal on the bumper is now bigger and uses LED technology.
Carrying a body profile of 4789 mm (length) x 2097 mm (width) x 1382 mm (height) along with a 2720 mm wheelbase, it has been seen in plain view that the 2018 Ford Mustang GT V8 car has a fastback body curve with a short but side stern side the area of the hood is more elongated.
There is no dramatic design curve from the side of this car, but for the ‘shoe’ business it is rather unfortunate not too attractive. In the condition of the car sold at Blinkz Blinkz Motor, it currently uses 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels that look ordinary, but fortunately already using Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires measuring 255/40 R19.

The back side of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT V8 now comes with a redesign on the LED taillight that is in line with the replacement of the rear bumper design, to accommodate the diffuser and quad-tailpipe designs. For the open button, the trunk door can be operated through a button hidden in the area above the number plate room.
FORD INTERIOR MUSTANG 2018
The interior of the 2018 Ford Mustang GT V8 manages to combine two retro and modern characters in one fitting synergy. Some details of interior design are made just like the classic Ford Mustang, but now given a touch of modern technology that makes this car feel interesting.
The Ford Mustang V8 GT 2018 Dashboard is in fact not significantly different from the pre-facelift sixth-generation Ford Mustang. It’s just that if you pay attention in detail, now the material used is better because the dashboard panel uses soft-touch type. You can read another ford car review at Car News Egg.
The majority of the car’s settings buttons are on the center console, which can also be displayed on the 8-inch Ford SYNC infotainment screen. But more interesting is the instrument cluster which now uses a 12-inch digital screen. The settings on the steering wheel are quite complete and easy to operate, including a pair of paddle shift buttons behind the steering wheel.
The seat of the Ford Mustang GT V8 2018 uses a 2 + 2 configuration, where the front seat uses Recaro racing seat upholstered in leather. Unfortunately the front seat of the Ford Mustang can only be operated back and forth and up and down electrically, while for the position of lying down and upright from the seat still use the manual method.
