With a host of new models, the New Mustang and Focus RS are set to appear. The all-new new Mustang is latest car to wear the legendary galloping horse badge and a convertible 2.3-litre EcoBoost-engined Mustang, with 317PS power output and 432Nm of torque, will make its Moving Motor Show debut, alongside the UK debut of the new Focus RS.

The all-new new Mustang is the latest car to wear the legendary galloping horse badge and a convertible 2.3-litre EcoBoost-engined Mustang, with 317PS power output and 432Nm of torque.

Already over 1,300 UK orders have already been taken for the first Mustang available with right-hand drive. The first year’s allocation is already sold out.

While rally and stunt star Ken Block will drive the RS during the main Goodwood Festival of Speed days from Friday – Sunday, visitors to Thursday’s Moving Motor Show will be the first in the UK to get a look at the Blue Oval’s latest and lairiest hot hatch on the main Ford stand.

As well as the head-turning Ford Mustang, Moving Motor Show drivers will also experience the Focus ST TDCi estate, the Ford Fiesta Red Black Edition and gold Transit SportVan to celebrate its 50th birthday later this year.

Ford’s new derivatives major on combining performance with outstanding fuel economy; the Focus ST TDCi will transport its occupants from 0-62mph in just 8.3 seconds but is still capable of 67 mpg on the combined cycle.

Also joining its stablemates is an eye-catching new version of the top-selling Fiesta. Under the bonnet, Fiesta Red Black features Ford’s multi-award winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with 140PS, bestowing it with more power-per-litre than a Bugatti Veyron.

Fiesta Red Black’s sporting credentials are underlined by the car’s striking exterior, which can be specified in black with a contrasting red roof and red detailing including the grille surround, or vice versa.

There will also be cause for celebration as Ford prepares to mark half a century of the Transit, and no expense has been spared with the creation of the Transit Custom SportVan. This one-off edition is finished in gold and sports a 2.2-litre 155PS diesel engine with an impressive 385Nm of torque; capable of shifting the heaviest of loads but still returns over 42mpg.

The Transit Custom SportVan will take to Goodwood Hill as part of a convoy of gold transits touring the country in a run-up to the anniversary of its launch date on August 9.
