That's about as sophisticated as a horse cart. Does > it also have 'cart springs' too, like some other American 'muscle cars' ? Did you read the entire thread? Frank said the car was getting rave reviews because of reasons *other* than its level of sophistication, which - mechanically at least, - is pretty low. Its heritage engine, uncompetitive economy/emissions and deliberately old-fashioned chassis mean that this is a car designed exclusively for Mustang enthusiasts in the North American markets. I would not expect to see a Mustang officially available in Europe any more than a BMW 118d become officially available in the mid-West.
