  • Une Ford Mustang 1964 devant l'usine de Flat Rock dans le Michigan le 8 août 2018

"La Mustang est une véritable machine à fabriquer des sourires dans tous les pays", a-t-il ajouté.

Quelques heures après avoir annoncé la sortie de la 10 millionième Mustang de ses lignes d'assemblage de Flat Rock, dans le Michigan, Ford a levé le voile sur la Mustang NASCAR Cup qui disputera le championnat éponyme la saison prochaine. D'après Ford, elle a été la voiture de sport la plus vendue en Amérique au cours des 50 dernières années. Comme son aînée, elle est animée par un V8 de 460 ch accouplé à une boîte manuelle à six rapports, soit respectivement 296 ch de plus et trois rapports de plus que la première Mustang.

La 10 millionième Ford Mustang est un cabriolet GT drapée d'une robe blanch " Wimbledon " comme sur la première Mustang lancée en 1964.

La Mustang, voiture culte de la marque Ford et symbole de la culture américaine, a passé mercredi le cap historique des 10 millions de véhicules assemblés dans son usine de Detroit, capitale historique de l'automobile.

Trois avions de combat P-51 Mustang ayant participé à la Deuxième Guerre mondiale en ont profité pour survoler la scène. Heureusement, les ventes ont grimpé à l'étranger, notamment en Chine, ou Ford y a écoulé plus de 4 200 modèles en 2017, et en Europe avec environ 13 200 véhicules vendus. L'année dernière, elle s'est même offert le luxe de dépasser la sacro-sainte Porsche 911 sur treize marchés européens, dont le Royaume-Uni et l'Espagne. Il n'a pas fallu attendre longtemps après sa révélation avant que la Ford Mustang rencontre le succès.

Les deux voitures ont d'autres points en commun, comme ceux d'être équipées d'un moteur V8 et de profiter d'une transmission de vitesses manuelle. D'autres détails rendent hommage à la mythique sportive de 1968 pilotée par Steve McQueen, tels que les encadrements chromés de la calandre et des vitres, ainsi que des jantes en aluminium de 19 pouces.
