Demand for the European version of the Ford Mustang appears to be very strong, as the Blue oval is reporting half a million potential customers have flooded the company’s websites to specify an example of the vehicle in the first month Mustang was available to order across the continent.

Ford says during the first week, more Mustang models were specified online than any other Ford vehicle with websites for the model attracting more than 1.1 million visits from mid-January to mid-February.

Data for that period shows the most popular specification in Europe is the EcoBoost-equipped model with six-speed manual transmission, chosen for 37 per cent of models configured. Manual transmissions overall accounted for two-thirds of models specified.

Ford made the first 500 Ford Mustangs for Europe available to reserve during the 2014 UEFA Champions League Final. More than 9,300 people registered online for a chance to reserve one of the models during the match with the first 500 models being reserved in just 30 seconds.
