“Must be a muscle car, must have two doors”
Dennis Hoang is an international student who has lived and studied in Australia for many years. This guy had a strong passion for muscle car but could not own any model at that time due to his age.
Arriving in Vietnam, finishing the course and being old enough to own a car, Dennis immediately thought of a trendy muscle car, although the financial conditions allowed the young man to approach luxury cars. The opportunities to sit in the sub-seats of the Ford Mustang Shelby, Dodge Challenger the highest variant SRT Hellcat, … quickly turned into dynamic motivating Dennis to stick with the Ford Mustang High Performance 55th anniversary.
“The power of the 2.3L EcoBoost engine is just enough if you want to use the Mustang everyday”
I don’t deny myself like the 5.0 Ford Mustang GT version, but the price is a hindrance. However, the main reason why Dennis chose the lower version is because it suits his current needs.
“The power of the GT 5.0 version is too redundant in Vietnam, when the domestic expressway only runs at most 120 km / h. Therefore, choosing the 2.3L EcoBoost version is reasonable with the need to go. everyday again “.
In return, Dennis cleverly chose for himself the high-performance version of the High Performance, making his car the only one of the three 55th anniversary versions currently available in Vietnam.
“My Mustang has comfort mode, so it’s not hard to use on the street, the car is quite gentle and obedient. However, when switching to Track mode, the Mustang is like a” monster “showing its original form. The car has a recoil every click of the throttle, and with each deep pedal, the driver or the passenger seat can fully enjoy the feeling of his back firmly attached to the seat. American boldness makes the driver feel more excited. In general, the Mustang is suitable for use in many different purposes, “said Dennis.
“The lightness only costs 150 million, but the Mustang High Performance driving experience is worth every penny”
The items that Dennis upgraded for his beloved car included only a new radiator, air filter and a set of branded exhaust FI Exhaust. In particular, the exhaust is the most expensive equipment, and also a favorite upgrade of this guy.
“My favorite thing about the new exhaust system is that it can be turned on / off. When I go in the street to run in a relaxed way or go to a cafe, I can turn it off, the exhaust sound is quite gentle. But when running at night, I want to function. A little more dynamic can turn on the exhaust mode, immediately a roar appears and gives stimulation to the driver. Not to mention every time of gear, the sound of “buttercup” also makes the operator more excited ” , Dennis Hoang excitedly recounted.
In addition, according to the 2k owner, small upgrades also partly improve the Ford Mustang’s latency. However, most interestingly, according to Dennis, when driving the Mustang is in Sport or Track mode, the driver can completely drift easily, and with the “insist” not hard, the sudden acceleration makes the phenomenon. Tail throwing is very easy to happen. However, this can still be controlled with the 2.3L EcoBoost engine.
The inherent minus points
“As a car with a sporty tendency, of course the car’s shock absorbers have to be hard, especially this suspension cannot be customized. Therefore, during use, sometimes the car also makes people feel better. The driver feels tired on a long journey, not to mention the hard steering wheel and the seats are not really comfortable, “said Dennis.
In terms of space, because it is mainly for personal use, Dennis does not feel much inconvenience. The capacity of the trunk is still enough to accommodate daily exercise equipment, but if you travel with only 2 people, it is still okay when the storage capacity can be expanded by lowering the 2nd row.
“Although it is a 4-seater car, the rear seats do not really match its function. The rear seats are quite tight and only suitable for children under 10 years old, or girls with small stature. with young men, the sitting inside can not stretch their legs comfortably, not to mention when going into the bounce, the head will definitely touch the ceiling “, Dennis recounted.
Space “trade-off” of the Ford Mustang.
Next, according to Dennis, some other gadgets in the car are sometimes inferior to conventional cars, although the car is 2 to 3 times more expensive.
“For example, the mirror still has to fold hands, there is no electric adjustment. The seat can be adjusted forward / back electrically, but if you want to recline, you must use the muscle. The entertainment system is enough, but the soundproof system in the car is not yet. really good, especially the car glass is a single layer without borders, so when the bass from the sound system is pounding hard, the glass door has vibrations, “said the 2k guy.
“Ford Mustang is the car worthy of the collection”
As a fan of American muscle cars, Dennis decided to buy a Dodge Challenger – a legendary rival of Ford Mustang, but after a few experiences, the international student still satisfied the Mustang. my more.
Facing the trend of SUVization, many people have given up on low-undercarriage sports cars to move to high-performance SUVs, typically Mercedes-AMG G63, even up to Lamborghini Urus but with Dennis, American muscle or sports car. 2 doors are still cars that will stick with him for a long time, even though your garage has many other cars, which is a dream for many people. However, the Mustang still has a separate place to stay. Finally, this guy revealed to us: “The next car is still 2 doors but coming from Germany to change the wind, the car is on the way to Vietnam”.
