Few cars can claim to have made such an impact on the United States during the 1980s as the 1987-1993 5.0L Mustang. For a cheap price it gave enthusiasts a powerful V8 engine, enough luxury and good handling, and because of this was a big hit. In base 'LX' form, the car came without the range-topping GT's bodykit, hence it weighed less and was quicker. Various magazines testing the car in the USA had the Borg Warner T5 manual five-speed versions running low-14-second quarter -miles, surpassing many higher powered muscle cars of the 1960s and early 1970s. Certainly it was vastly superior in handling, thanks to progressive rale springs and a 'Quadra-shock' horizontal shocks at either side of the axle to prevent wheel hop and increase traction. The LX was so quick in standard form that even the US police chose it for high-speed patrol work.
