Belgian Drivers Fall In Love With The Ford Mustang

The title for the highest concentration of new Ford Mustang examples in Europe doesn’t belong to the UK, Germany, or France as one might suspect. Instead, it belongs to the comparatively-small country of Belgium, where the S550 Mustang has sold in numbers of 1,600 since its European launch.

That equates to one new Ford Mustang per 4,693 drivers, according to Ford – higher than in any other European country. Germany and the UK have both purchased Mustangs in greater quantities, but their larger population sizes mean a concentration of about one-per-7,700 drivers in each country.

In all, the Ford Mustang has sold more than 21,000 examples in Europe; Germany leads in overall purchases with 7,281 pony cars, next to the UK’s 4,761 and France’s 2,126. Belgium, amazingly, comes fourth on the list.

“Mustang is a car that has a massive and passionate following among fans in Europe through enthusiasts’ clubs and numerous Mustang meetings,” says Ford Belgium Managing Director Laurent Charpentier. “It is a sports car like no other, one that some fans here have literally been waiting their whole lives for.”
