A new record in the Malaysia Book of Records was achieved when 137 Ford Mustangs gathered under the Malaysian Mustang Club banner. The event, held at the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, saw Mustang owners and fans get together to share the Mustang experience.

An official record certificate was presented to the club president, Alfred C K Joseph, by the chief operating officer of the Malaysia Book of Records, Christopher Wong. “We are delighted to have earned a spot in the Malaysia Book of Records for having the title of biggest gathering of Ford Mustang vehicles in the country,” said Joseph.

Our aim is to show unity and harmony by bringing all walks of life together in our multiracial community through our passion and love for cars,” Joseph continued. Established in 2018, the Malaysian Mustang Club now has 245 members.

Aside from sharing information and knowledge about the Mustang, the club also advocates safe and courteous driving and provides a platform for Mustang fans to connect with one another. The Ford Mustang was first released in 1964 and has been in continuous production ever since.

Syed Ahmad Muzri Syed Faiz, managing director of Ford distributor Sime Darby Auto Connexion, said, “Kudos to Mustang Club Malaysia for spearheading this event and setting a new record in the country. It is a tremendous feat to organise and mobilise 137 Mustang vehicles and club members.

“We are incredibly proud of their efforts. We continue to be committed in maintaining close relations with the network of various Ford owners’ clubs and supporting their activities to foster deeper mutual understanding and camaraderie.”

The latest sixth-generation Mustang was sold here, offered with either a 317 PS 2.3 litre EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder or a 416 PS 5.0 litre naturally-aspirated V8. Back when it was new in 2016, it was priced at RM488,888 for the EcoBoost and RM598,888 for the V8-powered GT. The facelift, which includes a more powerful 430 PS V8, was supposed to be launched last year, but plans have yet to materialise.
