The sixth generation Mustang was unveiled on 5th December 2013, in Michigan, New York, Los Angeles, Barcelona, Shanghai and Sydney with the internal project code name S-550. With three engine options, a newly developed 2.3 litre EcoBoost 310bhp four-cylinder, a 3.7 litre 300bhp V6 or 5.0 litre Coyote 435hp V8, with either a Getrag six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters.
A new independent rear suspension (IRS) system was developed specifically for the new model. It also became the first version factory designed as a right hand drive export model to be sold overseas through Ford new car dealerships in right hand drive markets. The 2018 Mustang engine line up was revised with the 5.0 litre V8 receiving a power increase to 460hp and 420 lb ft of torque. The automatic transmission in both engines is now a ten speed Ford 10R80. The 2020 model year saw the re-introduction of the GT500. The 2020 GT500 included a hand-built 5.2 litre ‘Predator’ aluminium-alloy V8 engine with a 2.65 litre roots-type supercharger. The Shelby GT500 produces 760hp and 625 lb ft of torque but the GT350 was discontinued at the end of the 2020 model year.
With little more than delivery mileage, this ‘as new’ 55 edition example is presented in Velocity Blue and was first registered to our vendor on 13th October 2020; this however, was just the start of the ownership story and certainly not the end. Whilst purchasing the car from the dealership our vendor asked about further upgrades that might be available, bearing in mind the car was already specified with front and rear witness cameras, a 55 Edition rear spoiler, MagneRide adaptive suspension and full Ebony leather. The dealership pointed him in the direction of arguably the country’s leading specialist, Clive Sutton, in London who was duly commissioned and set upon the conversion from 55 edition specification to full CS800 specification, details of which can be found below. A car that cost £49,000 from the Ford dealership was suddenly treated to nearly £40,000 of Ford recognised upgrades. With the Ford warranty still valid it has been transformed from a sports car to a car that could challenge a super or even a hyper car. Boasting a guaranteed 830bhp but achieving 850bhp on a dyno test, it is believed even that could be surpassed after running in the engine together with a claimed under three seconds 0-62 and a top speed of over 200 mph. Clive Sutton’s performance packages are considered the very best and the CS800 is the top package available. Offered with a warranty from both Ford (for the standard car items) and from Clive Sutton for the CS800 Package this is as good as buying a brand new bespoke CS800 without the wait.
Having waited a good eight months during lockdown, our vendor was full of excitement for the car, visiting the factory and showroom at numerous stages. Clive Suttons also used this very car for a PR photoshoot and video. Further PR surrounding the CS800 can be found here;
This is a Mustang like no other - brash, capable, ballistic fast and filled with the latest technology, it brings to mind the Nissan Skyline GTiR only rarer and faster. A new car, with upgrades worth the value again, no waiting list…. what is there not to like!
Supplied with original supplying invoices from Sutton and Ford, full book pack, all keys, tracker and warranties.
