On the day that Ford opened its order book for the 2015 model year Mustang in the US, Dodge upstaged it with some news about the most powerful Challenger yet. The Hellcat has a 6.2-litre supercharged Hemi V8 and, while no power or performance figures have yet been released, in excess of 600bhp is expected. There’s not much detail yet, so instead we’ll concentrate on the gallery of images. Looks as hard as nails, doesn’t it?
All of which rather overshadowed news that Ford is now taking orders for the next-generation Mustang – in the US, at least. Pricing for the fastback, 3.7-litre V6 model starts at $24,425. If you’re reading this in the UK, that equates to a barely believable £14,500 – about £3k less than a Fiesta ST costs here.
