MUSTANG RECORD SET BY FORD

MUSTANG RECORD SET BY FORD

Posted by Matt Bell on 12th September 2019

Mustang drivers from all across Europe gathered at Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground, Belgium, on September 7 to set a new world record for Mustangs in a parade.

Ford smashed its own record of 960 vehicles, set in Toluca, Mexico on December 3, 2017, with 1,326 Mustangs from all over Europe making the pilgrimage to the Ford testing facility in Belgium. To set the new record, the Mustangs were driven in an uninterrupted convoy with no more than 20 metres between each car. Vehicles and drivers also participated in a special choreography to celebrate Mustang’s 55th anniversary this year.

More Mustangs are sold in Belgium per head than any other country in Europe, making Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground the ideal location for the world record attempt. Mustang was the world’s best-selling sports coupe for the fourth year in a row in 2018 and sales continued to rise in the first half of 2019.

Watch below to see how the record attempt was conducted.
