Do you ever get out of bed in the morning craving a bit more ‘yee-haw’ in your life? If the answer to that is a big 10-4, then say howdy to the Ford Mustang fastback (read: coupé).

Right, now that we’ve got all the American clichés out of our system, let’s look at what the 'Stang offers. At the bottom end of the range is a 2.3-litre four-cylinder Ecoboost engine that shares more than a few nuts and bolts with the motor in the Focus RS. Spend a little more and you can have a thumping great 5.0-litre V8.

Despite being a large, brawny slice of Americana, it has a purchase price that seems entirely reasonable. If you want similar levels of firepower with a German badge, you’ll need to pay a lot more money or have a much smaller car. Even then, the Mustang has a presence that most European cars can only dream of. It’s even sort of practical, thanks to rear seats that are fairly usable.

If that sounds like your cup of soda, then click through the next few pages to see how it drives, what the interior is like and how kind it is to your wallet. If you’re already desperate to pony up (sorry), then check out our new car deals for supersized savings.
