The 2015 Ford Mustang has been a hit here at home, but also a hit globally. Ford has been on a road show of sorts, sporting their newest pony in the lineup. The 2015 Mustang was recently introduced in the Publika mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This 2015 Ford Mustang is slightly different than the US version. It’s a right hand drive machine and doesn’t officially go on sale until 2016, making it a 2016 model once you can get your hands on one. We’ve learned from sources that the Mustang on display is a GT model, with 435HP…
So if you are a driver in Kuala Lumpur and really want to get your hands on one of these, you’ll have to wait another 6 months or so. But, if you are like us, we found the wait to be well worth it and we are enjoying our 2015 GT daily.
Ford has began to export the Detroit built 2015 Ford Mustang to many overseas countries as we have mentioned previously. Well Ford has just began to ship some Pony’s to China. We found that fans in China will have to come up with nearly $130,000.00 if they want to drive a Mustang GT down the streets of Shanghai. This is partly due to the fact that Ford charges more because of all the changes they need to make for a car leaving our shores. But the Chinese government also imposes a huge tax on cars with “large engines”. This tax can run in excess of 66% of purchase price.
2015 Ford Mustang Arrives in China
Ford is offering the Mustang in the EcoBoost, V6 and GT models. Even with the enormous price tag, Ford says sales are “exceeding” their own expectations. We believe them. Ford just released the sales numbers for January 2015……..over 112,000 Mustangs sold in January. That is an increase of nearly 20 percent from a year ago January. We expect this 6th Generation Mustang to live long and continue to produce huge sales numbers for many years to come. If the Chinese start to love this car as much as Americans….the sky is truly the limit!

Mustang owners are lucky in the fact that all 2015’s come from the factory with a front splitter. The only problem is the front splitter is just black plastic and might be a little boring. We found the aftermarket parts company APR Performance, they created a front splitter that is 100% real carbon fiber and replaces the existing, plastic splitter on all Mustangs.
2015 Ford Mustang APR Carbon Fiber Splitter
Not just an audacious visual upgrade, the APR Carbon Fiber Front Splitter for your 2015 Ford Mustang also provides the highly desirable performance benefits of reduced lift and high speed stability, but what really makes APR Performance products worth your attention? The answer is simple: top shelf quality. Unlike some competitors’ products, APR items guarantee perfect fitment without damaging or expensive modification, and like the rest of their product line this Carbon Fiber Splitter is made of the best materials, all of which adds up to a killer finished product.
This fine looking splitter can be found at a few parts houses in the internet. We found them at Southern Car Parts and also RPI Designs.
