Last weekend I was back at Beaulieu for Simply Ford. This is the second event I’ve been to at the National Motor Museum (in Beaulieu) that was brand specific. Simply Ford is, as the name implies, a gathering of cars that bear the Ford badge. Everything from Escorts to Mustangs turned up to be displayed in the grounds of the museum. It was another great day out.

Unfortunately, in the UK we miss out on some cars that some other countries (like the US of A) get. It’s a real shame when you hear that a new car is being released, but then you find out that the only way of acquiring one is to either import it or move abroad. With that slightly depressing thought in mind, we are now going to look at all the cars you can’t get if you live in England. Enjoy…

Yes, I know I’ve been posting about Mustangs for three posts in a row now, what with the Mustang Bullitt being announced and the Shelby GT500 being teased. However, recently there have been many images of the GT500 going around on the internet and on social media, so I thought it would be necessary to at least mention them. Now, you must know these are not leaked images, but rather renderings. The one above I think will be closest to the real thing, and here’s why…

I wanted to keep this post short and sweet, just talking a little bit about the news on the 2019 Shelby Mustang GT500 we have received. As at the time of me writing this, Ford has teased the car at the Detroit Auto Show. In the teaser video (there will be a link to it at the bottom of this post), there are a few shots of different parts of the new GT500, such as the wheels in the picture above. It was a pretty basic video, mainly to drum up some hype for the snake-badged beast’s return. Ford did want to make one thing about it very clear though…

Showcased at the Detroit Auto Show, this is the new 2019 Ford Mustang Bullitt Edition. It’s a more expensive, more powerful version of the 2018 Mustang GT, though no price or performance figures have been released yet. If you don’t already know, Bullitt is an old 1968 Steve McQueen movie with a very famous car chase scene in it. This new Bullitt Edition Mustang pays homage to that chase by taking the iconic look of the classic Mustang McQueen drove in the film, and putting it on the modern Mustang. What you get from that is a very cool, retro car that you can tell is special.

1. Aston Martin Vantage
First on my list is the new baby Aston, a true modern sports car. Under the bonnet is a twin-turbo charged AMG V8 with over 500bhp that’s bound to wake the neighbours in the morning, and that’s in addition to an almost 50/50 weight distribution due to the engine being mounted just in front of the driver. On paper the Vantage already sounds both fun and fast so hopefully it will be able to carry on and improve upon the previous car’s epic legacy.
