The Ford Mustang is a muscle car that we love. It is regarded by us as THE muscle car by many and so it doesn’t come as a surprise that it has retained the title of the world’s best selling sports car for a 10th year running.
The Mustang, celebrating its 59th birthday, has been named as the world’s best selling sports car according to Ford analysis of registration data from S&P Global Mobility. No other sports car has been able to outsell the icon for nearly six decades.
Ford’s internal data shows that the United States accounts for 78% of global sales with growth seen in other markets as well such as Germany, Britain, Switzerland, and the Middle East. In the Middle East, sales for the Mustang were up by 7.4%.
“We’re proud of the entire Mustang family, what it represents to Ford and especially our passionate Mustang owners and fans,” said Dave Bozeman, the Vice President of Enthusiast Vehicles for Ford Blue and Ford Customer Service Division, “It’s our commitment to serving Mustang’s global community, from Atlanta to Adelaide and beyond, that has earned Mustang the honor of world’s best-selling sports car for 10 years combined.”
