Ford Mustang Voted Europe’s Most Wanted Classic Car
The Ford Mustang is Europe’s most desirable classic car, according to a survey of more than 75,000 users of online car portal AutoScout24.
A total of 37 per cent of Europeans named the Ford Mustang as the classic car they would most like to own. Confirmed as coming to Europe and the UK for the first time, the Mustang was the clear winner, ahead of the BMW M1 (20 per cent) and the Volkswagen Beetle (11 per cent).
“Ford Mustang is more than a car, it’s the freedom of the open road and the spirit of performance driving,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales and Service, Ford of Europe. “Mustang has been a fundamental part of global automotive culture for almost half a century and is one of the world’s most recognisable vehicles.”
Mustang celebrates its 50th anniversary next year in 2014. Following on from the reveal of a concept car originally in 1962, the production model was officially launched a couple of years later in 1964. With nearly 3,000 movie and TV appearances around the world, countless song references, parade appearances, toys and more, a following for Mustang is common to many car fans around the world.
