    Powertrain, suspension, styling and equipment tweaks make Ford’s American icon more suited to European tastes. More rounded, and still as lovably alternative as ever. A facelifted Ford Mustang. As if to prove that Ford of Europe’s decision to bring the iconic American muscle coupe to this continent three years ago wasn’t a fad, it’s bringing us an updated one.The styling changes aren’t drastic, but there’s more to report under the skin, with an overhauled ‘Coyote’ 5.0-litre V8 being adopted that develops more power than it used to; a set of digital instruments and a more complete collection of modern active safety systems being fitted; revisions and upgrades being made to the car’s steering and suspension; and a new 10-speed automatic gearbox being offered.The new engine and gearbox combine, in the case of US-specification cars, to allow the Mustang GT to crack 60mph in under four seconds – although Ford has yet to let on exactly how much power the car will develop in European trim or how fast it’ll be.Ahead of the press launch proper, it gave us the chance for a short early drive in the new Mustang automatic at its proving ground in Belgium.

    • Fitting a sunstrip
      Sunstrips can be aesthetically pleasing and very useful. The concept actually originates in the 1970s, where certain cars would be fitted with a green tint across the top of the windscreen. Then in the 1980s and 1990s, it was quite common to see racing cars being fitted with sunstrips to not only block out the sun but also provide extra sponsorship space on the vehicle.

    • Understanding your tyre sidewalls
      The language of tyres can seem a complex, and one few drivers understand. When choosing tyres drivers are guided by the tyre shop, and most drivers understand which Brands are premium, mid-range or budget and how to check tread depths. However the tyre sidewall gives you a lot of useful information, you just have to understand the hieroglyphics.

      Having an auxiliary fuse box can be beneficial to those who intend to modify their vehicle, either for work or pleasure and who intend to add additional electrical components such as exterior/interior lighting, stereo upgrades and alarms to name but a few.
