Ford Mustang: 10 millionth example rolls off the production line

Ford Mustang 4-cylinder 2018 UK first drive review panning

The 10 millionth Ford Mustang rolled off the line at the automaker's Flat Rock Assembly Plant in MI on Wednesday, further cementing the model's place as the best-selling sports auto of all time.

It was way back in 1964 that the first series production Mustang - the pioneer of the muscle auto genre - rolled out of Ford's plant in Dearborn, Michigan.

54 years after entering production for the first time, Ford has managed to achieve something impressive - 10 million Mustangs. There's good reason for the specifications, too.

The 10 millionth - or 1 crore - Ford Mustang is a 5.0 V8 cabriolet that has been finished in a very iconic Wimbledon White colour code.

Sixty Mustangs helped create the figure. Boasting 164bhp when new, the Mustang has evolved significantly since the first example rolled off the production line - the current V8 churns out a stock 416bhp. The owners plan to spell out the milestone production number with their cars and the automaker has arranged for a flyover salute by a P-51 Mustang fighter plane.

'Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite around the world, ' said Jim Farley, president of global markets, Ford Motor Company.

"I get the same thrill seeing a Mustang roll down a street in Detroit, London or Beijing that I felt when I bought my first vehicle - a 1966 Mustang coupe that I drove across the country as a teenager". The automaker has gathered one Mustang from every model year, and they're parading from Ford's headquarters in Dearborn to the Flat Rock Assembly Plant where the Mustang is now built.

It's not all been smooth sailing, however.

One thing's for sure, even though Ford is getting rid of all of its other auto models in favor of utilities and trucks, it has no plans to put its pony out to pasture.

But don't go looking for the 10 millionth in showrooms.
