While the United States is the largest market for Mustangs, the sixth-generation 2015 Mustang will be available in over 110 countries. Among those regions are 25 markets that require a right-hand drive configuration. For the first time, such a setup will come right off the assembly line.
Apparently, Ford engineers just finished the construction of the first prototype 2015 Mustang built with right-hand drive. With this unit, they will begin testing the car to ready it for sale in the aforementioned 25 markets, including Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
While the car goes on sale here in the US this fall, those other countries will have to wait a bit longer to enjoy that independent rear suspension.
