Ford Mustang Fastback Euro 18

Looks like the Ford Mustang is turning out to be a world phenomenon, in terms of sales. According to data published by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), 780 units of the Ford Mustang have been sold last month.

A look at the data provided shows that the Mustang has topped rivals like the Audi TT (708 units), Porsche 911 (752 units) and Jaguar F-Type (138 units). Meanwhile, the Mustang has also outsold its closest rival – the Chevrolet Camaro – which saw sales of only 18 units.

“Germans have fallen in love with the Mustang. Driving a Mustang GT on the Autobahn is a one of a kind experience for people who love cars,” said Wolfgang Kopplin, MD of Ford Germany.

In the UK alone, customer waiting times for the Ford Mustang has extended to six months. Those who placed an order in April will need to wait until October 2016 before their cars arrive. The long waiting list extends to Australia as well.

“The car has been enormously well-received right across the world, including in big markets like China and the US, so it will be quite a while before we can get on top of the backlog we have here in Europe,” Jim Farley said previously, explaining that it would take time to fulfil the demand of the Mustang in Europe.

Meanwhile, in Malaysia, the Ford Mustang was sighted recently, which suggests that a launch could be imminent. As to whether we’ll see the same overwhelming response that’s taking place around the world, well, that remains to be seen. Tentative pricing (in June 2015) of the Mustang was quoted at RM435k-RM450k for the 2.3 litre EcoBoost and RM550k-RM565k for the 5.0 litre V8.
