... according to Ford.

Sports car segment is one of the fastest growing segments on the European market for the first half of this year. According to JATO Dynamics, total registrations grew by a significant 31 percent to a total of around 70,000 units for the first six months.

After dominating the German sports car market in March, it seems the Ford Mustang is now also the best-selling high performance car with 250 horsepower (184 kilowatts) or more in the United Kingdom. The Blue oval says the pony car has 2,317 registrations in the country for 2016 so far and “this puts the Mustang comfortably at the top of the table against rivals, the closest being the Jaguar F-Type with 1,446.”

In Europe, the Mustang takes the third place with 9,231 sales, while the Audi TT tops the chart with 12,479 registrations followed by the Porsche 911 with 9,538. 

Last year, the Mustang was the top-seller in this segment globally with approximately 110,000 sales. It was the only sports coupe to sell more than 100,000 units and was “far and away the best-selling two-door sports car in the world,” as Ford explained.
