After Rohit Shetty, Tamil superstar Dhanush became the second Indian celebrity owner of the new Ford Mustang GT.
The multi-faceted Dhanush, best known for his work in Tamil cinema as an actor, director, producer, writer, lyricist, and playback singer, got himself the iconic American pony in a stealthy shade of black.
Ford India had launched the sixth-generation Mustang GT last year for INR 65 lakhs (ex-showroom New Delhi). In a matter of months, all Indian units allotted for 2016 were sold out.
The Mustang GT’s 5.0 litre V8 petrol engine is good for 401 PS and 542.3 Nm of torque. The firepower allows it to sprint from 0 to 100 kph in just 4.5 seconds, and on to a top speed of 250 km/h.
Power is sent to the rear wheels using a six-speed automatic transmission with shift paddles on the steering wheel. It also comes with a Line Lock function for smokier burnouts.
