Ford Attempts To Break Mustang Parade Record With Over 1,300 Cars
Ford is breaking records of its own this year. Not speed or power records, but the number of pony cars. Mustang owners from all over Europe help got together to help Ford set a new world record for the most Ford Mustang sports cars in a single parade, at Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium.
Examples from every generation of Mustang since the iconic sports car’s launch in 1964 converged on Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground on September 7, to help set a new world record for the largest number of 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 meters 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.
