The sixth-generation 2016 Ford Mustang is a revolutionary model for the iconic nameplate in many aspects. Its most important feature is arguably the new independent rear suspension, a first for the Mustang since its introduction in 1964. It’s also a lot sportier now, as it was designed as a true sports coupe rather than a muscle car. Moreover, it’s the first-ever Mustang to go global, which makes it a big deal for both Ford and enthusiasts the world over.

As the new pony is finally on its way to European dealerships, Ford Europe is busy promoting it through a series of short videos. The latest episode of "Ford Mustang arrives in Europe" shows the muscle car stretching its legs on the Blue Oval’s test track in Lommel, Belgium.

Footage of a Mustang GT being put through its paces on the track is backed by Raj Nair, Ford Group vice president, and Joe Bakaj, vice president of European product development, talking about the development process and the main features of the car. There’s a lot of info in there, but the conclusion is that the new Mustang was built to match the nameplate’s iconic DNA.

As a brief reminder, the new Mustang comes to Europe with two engines. The 2.3-liter, four-cylinder EcoBoost rated at 317 PS (312 horsepower) and the 5.0-liter V-8 generating 421 PS (415 horses). Until you can get your hands on one, check it out in action on the Lommel test track.
