I know these Magnetic photos were posted already by TN (here if anyone missed it) but here is the article. I'm surprised (and delighted) that Ford is not only making such a big push overseas for the S550 but bringing the V8 wherever it goes.....show'em how it's done Ford! :ford:

Ford will finally sell the Mustang in China. Exports will start next year. The Ford Mustang is mighty popular in China but only available via the gray dealer-to-dealer market. The official Ford Mustang is scheduled for launch on the Chinese auto market in the first quarter of 2015.

One gray pre-production Mustang GT was seen in a Ford dealer in Beijing, shipped to China by Ford to whet the Chinese appetite. Mass production of the 2015 Ford Mustang will start on September 19.

The Mustang will be available with the 2.3 four-cylinder, the 3.7 V6, or the 5.0 V8. The addition of the latter is a smart move. The main competitor of the Mustang is the Chevrolet Camaro, which is officially marketed in China, but only with the 3.6 V6 under the bonnet. Price starts at 455.000 yuan ($73.000).

Price for the new Mustang is yet unknown. The outgoing 3.7 V6 ‘Stang starts around 500.000 yuan ($80.000) on the gray market. Ford will surely sell it cheaper than that and the 2.4 will be much cheaper again.

80K USD for a V6.... there is your answer why Chevy is not offering the V8 there. It would easily cost up to 100K. With prices that high and the pandemic traffic and smog in China I can't imagine it will sell many GT's there.

AFAIK, most import cars in China are exceedingly expensive. So, it's all relative. For someone there that can afford an $80K USD car, springing a bit more for a GT may not be that much of a stretch...

Though not everyone in China is wealthy, those on the rise may be willing to pay a bit more for a Mustang than we are. Mustang just needs to have a cooler image and offer comparable (or better) performance than available alternatives.
I believe that the 2015 Mustang may be a popular pony car in China. No doubt it will be in its home market. :)
