If you love cars, then you'll be pleased to learn that the Ford Mustang is tipped to be the world's most popular sports car in 2018. This is according to the latest research gained from vehicle registration data within the sports car industry. During 2016, Ford sold over 150,000 Ford Mustangs, and sales have been steadily increasing. Outside of the States, a staggering 45,000 Mustangs went up for sale.
The Mustang has always been a firm favourite with the muscle car fans ever since its inception in the early sixties. It was based on the Ford Falcon of the same era and found instant success. It was named the Mustang because the designer John Najjar had a love of the fighter plane from World War 2 although there have been rumours that it was named by Robert Eggert who was a researcher for The Ford Motor Company. At the time Robert was also a horse breeder and was coincidentally reading a book called Mustangs. We will never know the real truth although we do know that its becomming the fastest selling sprts car.

Launched back in 2015 in China, it has long since been the fastest and biggest selling sports car in China. This iconic car within the sporting community has caught the attention of sports car enthusiasts around the world, with many choosing to incorporate cherished number plates to truly personalise their vehicle. The Mustang is now in its sixth generation and during 2016, the car managed to increase its exports by up to 18 percent. Its up against some stiff competition from Audi with their latest reincarnation of the S5 and the Jaguar XFR models but we are sure it will fare well the British public.
