In an effort to build a truly global platform, Ford began its shakedown of the first-ever, right-hand-drive Mustang.

The figures on the 2015 Mustang keep coming in. Several weeks ago, the Blue Oval released the specs on the new car’s engines. Now comes another important number: 1,964.

I’d rather the Mustang not return to Le Mans. What I want Ford to do is bring back the GT40 for another go.

These numbers still have to be certified, but they are official Ford horsepower and torque stats. Swim among the facts and figures after the jump.

We all probably should just move on from the debate over whether the Mustang Ecoboost is a fitting name for the new model of the pony car. It’s a done deal now as Ford is already kicking up promotions for the car by holding a recent closed-course ride-along for a few select journalists including the guys at Road & Track.
