Over 21,000 Mustangs have been sold in Europe, but a proportionally high 1,600 have gone to Belgian customers, ranking the smaller country fourth behind Germany, Britain and France.
â€œMustang is a car that has a massive and passionate following among fans in Europe through enthusiastsâ€™ clubs and numerous Mustang meetings,â€ said Laurent Charpentier, managing director, Ford Belgium. â€œIt is a sports car like no other, one that some fans here have literally been waiting their whole lives for.â€
