This is what it costs to drive a V8 in the Netherlands


Electric motors, particulate filters, three-cylinder and start/stop systems, everything is done to avoid emissions – and the associated tax penalty – as much as possible. However, at Ford Netherlands you can order a Mustang with a big V8. This is what you pay for the beast.

The new generation of the Ford Mustang always has a 5.0-liter V8 under the hood. The most powerful version produces 453 hp.
