The 2015 Ford Mustang appears on-track for an arrival in Australian showrooms late next year, with testing of the first right-hand-drive model now underway.

Ford released this single photograph of the new right-hook muscle car today in prototype form, marking the first time a RHD Mustang will be available from the factory.

Australia isn’t the only RHD market Ford will be targeting of course, with the UK, South Africa and New Zealand among 25 new markets for the ‘Blue Oval’s’ pony car.

Furthermore, Ford will begin production of the right-hand-drive Mustang more or less at the same time as the left-hand-drive, with sales of the LHD version to the US market due to begin in the Australian spring.

Ford says more than 161,000 Mustangs have been sold outside the US since the car’s debut in 1964, compared with 9.2 million sales in its home market.

That figure is unlikely to include the countless Mustangs around the world than began life as LHD models, only to be converted to RHD by owners in markets such as Australia eager to own one and not willing to wait 51 years.

The original Mustang was revealed in New York in April 1964, and Ford recently recreated its famous unveiling by perching one of its all-new models on top of the Empire State Building.

Key specifications for the new model were released earlier this year, including outputs for the four- and eight-cylinder engines available to Mustang buyers in Australia.

Keep watching TMR for more on the 2015 Ford Mustang ahead of its local arrival next year.
