Savvy motorists in the market for a new sports car should beat a path to their nearest Ford dealer, advises cap hpi.
The Ford Mustang tops the chart of the top five best depreciating sports cars at one year old and 10,000 miles. The Ford beats models from Porsche, Lotus and Nissan.
Commenting on the findings, Clive Wilson, Black Book editor at cap hpi said: “The new Ford Mustang met with positive reviews in the media and is proving a hit for the brand. The majority of buyers are picking the V8 for the authentic muscle car experience, while the Ecoboost engine accounts for around 30% of sales. “Depreciation is often the hidden cost of motoring but for anyone looking for a good value sports car, the Ford Mustang provides a savvy new and used purchase.”
Ford recently announced the Mustang is the UK’s most popular high-performance sports coupe, ahead of competitors from Porsche, BMW, Jaguar and Mercedes. Figures for sports cars with 250PS or more put the Mustang at the front of the pack from January to July 2016.
Since Ford started taking orders in January 2015, the Ford Mustang has topped 4,000 sales to date, with total 2016 registrations at 2,317, so far. This puts the Mustang comfortably at the top of the table against rivals, the closest being the Jaguar F-Type with 1,446.
Total customer orders for the Ford Mustang in Europe now stand at more than 19,500 since the car was launched in the third quarter of 2015.
