Ford to showcase new models at Goodwood's Moving Motor Show

Ford will showcase a host of new models at Goodwood's Moving Motor Show on Thursday 25 June, including the much-anticipated new Mustang and Focus RS.

The new Mustang is the latest car to wear the legendary galloping horse badge and will make its Moving Motor Show debut in the form of a 2.3-litre convertible with 316bhp and 432Nm of torque, alongside the UK debut of the new Focus RS.

More than 1,300 UK orders have already been taken for the first Mustang available with right-hand drive, which will arrive in dealerships this autumn. With the first year's allocation sold out, new FordStore dealerships are now supplying Mustangs for delivery from April 2016.

Meanwhile, rally and stunt star Ken Block will drive the new RS during the main Goodwood Festival of Speed event from Friday to Sunday. Visitors to Thursday's Moving Motor Show will be the first in the UK to get a look at the carmaker's latest hot hatch on the main Ford stand.

Moving Motor Show drivers will also be given the opportunity to experience the Focus ST TDCi estate, the Ford Fiesta Red Black Edition and the gold Transit SportVan, to make its 50th anniversary later this year.

There will also be cause for celebration as Ford prepares to mark half a century of the Transit, and no expense has been spared with the creation of the Transit Custom SportVan. This one-off edition is finished in gold and sports a 2.2-litre 154bhp diesel engine with an impressive 385Nm of torque; capable of shifting the heaviest of loads but still returns over 42mpg.

The Transit Custom SportVan will take to Goodwood Hill as part of a convoy of gold transits touring the UK in the run up to its anniversary on August 9.
