Ford Mustang leads global sports coupe sales

Chevy introduced the Camaro ZL1 into the Cup Series this year. It will succeed the Fusion in NASCAR's premier series.

The Mustang campaigns in the Supercar series in Australia and in the GT4 series in Europe as well.

Ford also announced today that the 'Stang has once again been crowned the best-selling sports coupe on Earth, according to IHS Markit data.

The new ST will feature a more powerful 147kW/290Nm 1.5-litre three-pot EcoBoost engine and six-speed manual transmission, with performance further enhanced by light-weight cutting-edge chassis technology and advanced aerodynamics.

"For years, Mustang was unobtainable for customers on most parts of the planet", says Ford sales analyst Erich Merkle.

The decision to make the Mustang even more visible has been made in the wake of the success it enjoys for several years. "It could only be found on TV or the internet, and now it rolls down streets from Beijing to Sao Paulo".

Unsurprisingly, the United States remains the Mustang's largest market with 81,866 units registered previous year. In China the Ford Mustang was the best-selling sports coupe previous year with 7,125 registrations.

"As a Ford Performance model that's raced around the world, it's fitting that Australia's most popular sports vehicle should be on our race tracks".
