The 2015 Ford Mustang, which has been sold out for 12 months even before reaching showrooms, is one step nearer to the excited owners as the very first batch of vehicles has already landed in Melbourne.
Pretty much 500 fans of this well-renowned American muscle car will initially be treated to the arrival of this good-looking auto in time for the holiday season.
Despite having to pay AU$45,000 ($32,900) and AU$65,000 ($47,500), more than 4,000 Australians placed their deposits for the new Mustang.
Australians purchased two times as many Mustang cars as UK clients, despite the fact that the size of the population and the market in the UK is three times that of Australia.
This is the very first time that the Ford Mustang has been built in right-hand drive configuration on a U.S. production line. Way back in the 1960s and early 2000s, Mustangs offered within Australia were changed into right-hand drive in the country.
Initially, 173 Mustangs will arrive in Melbourne. Three additional shipments which will compose of 300 vehicles will get there ahead of Christmas.
It takes around two to four months for the Mustangs to arrive from Detroit to Australia.
Meanwhile, Charles Dance, who starred in the television series "Game of Thrones" as Tywin Lannister, has been reported to sell his vintage Ford Mustang Convertible.
This 1967 Mustang is predicted to fetch five digits, from £25,000 ($37,700) to £30,000 ($45,200). It's going to be showcased at the Classic Car Auctions event in Leamington Spa on Dec. 5.
In addition to being known as a great actor, Dance is also famous as a hardcore car enthusiast who even made an appearance on the BBC "Top Gear" segment "Star in a Reasonably-Priced Car," in which he drove a Vauxhall Astra on the show's test track.
David Beckham's previous auto, a 2007 Range Rover Sport, will join Dance's Ford Mustang at the auction. Beckham's car is forecasted to be sold at £23,000 ($34,700).
This SUV comes packed with a plaque boasting the name of the former England football captain. Beckham gave the vehicle to his sister after upgrading it.
A 1995 Ferrari 348 Spider will also be auctioned off for £40,000 ($60,300).
