The new Ford Mustang has achieved a feat that the Americans can be proud of. The latest iteration of the American pony car just managed to outsell the popular Audi TT and Porsche 911 at their home turf, Germany, in March 2016. This outcome is definitely not going to be taken lightly by Audi and Porsche.
According to data furnished by German Federal Motor Transport Authority, the Mustang clocked 780 units in Germany last month as against the TT’s tally of 708 units and the 911’s 752 units. The Mustang’s arch nemesis, the Chevrolet Camaro, could only manage a measly 18 units.
Delighted by the Mustang’s sales performance, Wolfgang Kopplin, MD of Ford Germany, said:
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.
The new Mustang not only proved to be popular in Germany but has also took other important markets by storm as well. In its 5 decades of existence, this is the first time the iconic car is available in RHD configuration. It already commands a huge waiting period in the UK and Australia.
The new Ford Mustang is all set to be launched in India in the coming months with the top-of-the-line 5.0-litre V8 petrol engine which is detuned to deliver 401 PS (40 PS less than the American version).
