New Ford Mustang. Just been on the web site configurator thingy. Here are the specs:

5.0 V8
0-60 - 4.8 secs
Top Speed - 155mph

Specced up to top spec price is £34k inc delivery, road tax, VAT.

Having been in one of the early ones in the UK last year, I can confirm that they sound very good and go very very well. Great looks as well.

How much is the Guilia going to cost? This has to be a direct rival doesn't it. Great value I reckon.

A big car which looks better in the metal than pics. It will be interesting to see who buys them. Instead of a Giulia ?

Well I reckon it will do all a Giulia will offer at a fraction of the price and more reliably - oh, and it's actually available. Looks a little bit similar as well....

You probably won't get a 'Stang on a company car list.

;)

Deffo worth getting as a rental stateside though. :)

They do a 2.3 zero boost version which is a bit more acceptable. But really it needs to be the V8.....

How is this a rival to a Giulia apart from the fact that it is a largeish car that's pretty quick?

There's a reason why most American cars are cheap. Drive one for a few hundred miles and you'll find out. Cheap and nasty in many respects, although their engines certainly have improved.
The new Mustang has a flat-plane crank though, which means it doesn't have that characteristic American V8 burble anymore...

You should take a look at the new one. This is the global Mustang, in right hand drive as well, and the fit and finish are far better than days gone by.

Sorry but they haven't made a decent Mustang since the 1960s

I have had a look at the new one, though I have not driven one. The interior seems better, but still nowhere near the same as most European cars.

Media reviews say the interior is up to Ford Europe levels, which is pretty good. Mechanically it is pretty advanced - and for £34k! And it does look good in the flesh. oh and it sounds very good...

I believe media reviews of new cars about as much as I believe that vampiric squirrels are living in the clouds.
