Australian buyers shouldn’t expect to see a GT500 in their nearest dealer anytime soon, Ford Australia spokesperson, Damion Smy told Cars Guide recently .
There are “no plans to bring the Mustang GT500 to Australia as it is strictly left-hand drive only,” Smy told the Aussie publication recently .
That will be a bummer for the nation’s fans of Australian Supercars Championship, which recently added a slightly dopey-looking Mustang to its championship.
That means that Ford’s most powerful Mustang ever won’t be gracing Australia’s shores any time soon.
With a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 under the hood making more than 700 hp and hitting 60 mph in the three second range, burnout-happy Australians will have nowhere to turn but Chevy, whose Camaro ZL1 will find its way into the nation’s dealerships.
