It hasn't yet been 12 hours since the hotly anticipated 2015 Ford Mustang has been let out into public view. After a series of evocative leaks over the course of the last days, we brought you a full deep dive of the sixth-generation pony car at the dawning of today. And yet, here we are rushing to bring you news of a new Mustang variant, already.

Be it part of a plan to keep the Mustang fervor at full boil, or a misunderstood email somewhere in the chain of command, Ford UK has unceremoniously tweeted a picture of the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible. For a newly global Mustang, getting our first look at the droptop from the convertible-crazy British does make some amount of sense.

As for details, well, you're looking at them. Brandon Turkus reported yesterday that the Mustang 'vert would make use of a fully electric convertible mechanism, and that it would be of fabric construction rather than some kind of retractable hardtop. We see here that the fabric part is clearly true, and it does look as though Ford may still be employing the same kind of manually attached tonneau cover that exists right now. Of course, our view from this angle isn't great, and the particulars are still up in the air.

Overall though, the shape seems very crisp and tailored compared with the profile of the current Mustang Convertible. Here too we find the lowered, ground-hugging stance of the machine to be somewhat enhanced by the roofless look.

Expect to see details and a lot more images pop up in the near future. Until then, weigh in with your opinions of the 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible, in Comments below.

UPDATE: Video of the 2015 Mustang Convertible's reveal in Australia added below. We've also added a gallery of images from the video, and from Ford's new Mustang microsite.

      You guys do realize there are convertible pics right on the Ford website, right? High resolution and all. Even a slider that lets you see what the top looks like up & down.

        That is one of the few cars that actually doesn't look bad with the top up.

      I wonder if there is going to be another with the glass top. I found it just really unique for the class. But damn, it would be a tough sell with how great the convertible looks.

      So, it's got the front end off their Ford Focus and the rest of it looks like the same old 1990's Mustang. Not for me.
