It’s available with a hybrid powertrain and the price starts from Rs 54.78 lakh (ex-showroom India).
The Mustang is the ultimate muscle car sold in India. When Ford decided to bring the pony car to India a few years back and it brought a smile on a lot of performance enthusiasts’ faces.

Ferrari 488 GTB
What is a list of red cars without a Ferrari in it? Well we have chosen our favourite and it is the 488 GTB. In red, it looks too good to be true and makes everyone turn around to catch a second glance. It has a 4.0-litre V8 that makes 660PS and can do the 0-100kmph run in just 3 seconds. So by the time people turn around for a second glance, you'd probably be long gone. This relatively inexpensive Ferrari will set you back a handsome Rs 3.88 crore (ex-showroom New Delhi).
