Ford Mustang voted as Europe’s most-wanted classic car

JonathanJanuary 8, 2014

UK Carline is proud to offer a number of quality manufacturers on competitive car leasing deals. This means that they can, not only innovate and produce the latest technology to improve the driving experience, but can also stand the test of time against new models.

One of the cars that meets these high standards is Ford and it has recently topped a poll which indicates that its vehicles can still stand out in a highly-competitive industry.

The vintage Ford Mustang has been voted as the car that most people want across Europe, according to a recent survey. Car portal AutoScout24 asked more than 75,000 users which retro cars they would rate higher than any other.

Europeans across the continent ranked the Ford Mustang as the car they would most want, with 37 per cent of them admitting that there was no other classic model for them. This left the likes of the BMW M1 (20 per cent) and the Volkswagen Beetle (11 per cent), trailing in its dust.

“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 of marketing, sales and service at 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.”

Ford also said that its Mustang Customizer app has been incredibly successful in the European market. The download allows people to design and build their own dream cars and compete with their friends to see which model is the most successful by generating the higest points.

The Ford Mustang was released in 1964 and was an instant success and a cult icon that inspired millions of people across the world. It has appeared in almost 3,000 movie and TV shows, been mentioned in an array of songs and been recreated in toys and merchandise on a global basis.

Next year will undeniably be a big landmark for the company as the Mustang will celebrate 50 years since the first model was launched. To track the impending anniversary, Ford has released a new series of videos entitled “Mustang Countdown”.
