2012 Ford Mustang 5.0 GT LHD


  • Recent engine replacement with a low-mileage unit
  • Extensive mechanical upgrades promise outstanding performance
  • Very good condition throughout
  • 1966 lookalike decals and private registration

The Appeal

This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a late-model fifth-generation Mustang that not only looks the part, but has also had a lot of money spent ensuring it performs exceptionally well.

With the standard engine being replaced in 2021 with a very low mileage 2016 unit, it has since been upgraded and tuned to perfection by well-regarded specialists. It is now in outstanding mechanical condition and ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.

The History and Paperwork

  • Imported from Dubai in 2020, the car seemingly previously spent time on the salt-free roads of Japan
  • Purchased as a project by the current owner in 2021, it has since been through a process of extensive mechanical refurbishment and upgrades
  • Engine replaced with 2016 unit with only 7780 miles
  • All recent mechanical work and upgrades have been completed by renowned Mustang tuners IPG classics and M & E Performance
  • All original owner’s handbooks and documentation present
  • Extensive receipts for parts and upgrades from the car’s time in both Dubai and the UK
  • V5 log book present in the owner’s name
  • Ford Mustang Performance aftershave and shower gel kit is a charming piece of memorabilia
  • Left-hand drive

The Interior

  • Very original and unmodified interior is generally in excellent condition throughout
  • Dashboard and centre console bear no major scratches or damage
  • Front seats are in good condition with only minor signs of wear
  • Rear seats are in very good shape and look barely used
  • Switchgear is in good condition with all features said to be functional
  • Retro-styled gauge cluster is unmarked
  • Steering wheel is in decent order though bears some visible marks and signs of age
  • Door cards, carpets and headlining are in great condition
  • Gear lever and handbrake are in good condition
  • Genuine Ford Mustang rubber floor mats
  • Boot area is clean and tidy apart from some scratches to the plastics. A rubber boot mat has been fitted to protect the carpets
  • Some paintwork has peeled away on the bottom of the doors
  • There is a noticeable paintwork blemish on the passenger side door sill

The desirable black leather interior of this Mustang has held up very well, with all of the major components bearing only minor signs of ageing. It has clearly been taken care of over the years, and cleans up very nicely.

The Exterior

  • Bodywork is in excellent order with no major damage to report
  • Blue metallic paintwork is also very nice although there are several blemishes across the front valance which are evidenced in the photographs
  • 1960s-inspired stripes and decals really make this a unique sight on the road
  • Exterior glass, mirrors, headlights and taillights are all in near-perfect condition
  • 20-inch alloy wheels look great and set the car off particularly well, though all wheels bear some scratches and marks
  • Noticeable paint chip on the lower part of the driver’s door
  • Further stone chips on the side-mounted air intakes
  • Underbody is in excellent shape with no visible signs of corrosion

Overall the condition of the exterior is very nice throughout, with only the usual stone chips and a handful of paintwork blemishes as the most noticeable defects. These are not commensurate with the car’s age and mileage.

The Mechanics

  • Recent engine replacement with a 2016 7780-mile unit
  • Full Boss 302 inlet/cam conversion 
  • New injectors, plugs and coilpacks
  • New water pump, belts and pulleys
  • Uprated oil pump
  • New alloy radiator & header tank with waterless coolant
  • New condenser and electric fan
  • New throttle body, throttle pedal and ECU
  • K & N cold air intake system 
  • Full 3” exhaust system plus long tube headers & 200 cell race cats ensure a thunderous exhaust note
  • Full M&P performance tune to 491bhp
  • Recent service of the 6-speed automatic transmission
  • Full coilover suspension
  • Recent brake inspection and refurb 

The mechanical condition and upgrades are what sets this Mustang apart from other examples. Thanks to an extensive programme of upgrades, including a virtually brand-new engine replacement, the car performs exceptionally well on the open road and is a thrill to drive.

A full Coilover suspension setup ensures that the car has the handling potential to match the enormous levels of performance.


Having had a small fortune spent on overhauling the mechanics, including a replacement engine and full transmission service, this Mustang is now ready for the lucky new owner to unleash its amazing performance at their will.
