Ford Mustang World Record gathering at Lommel, Belgium

Ford has set a new world record for the most Mustangs congregated in one location, but it wasn’t in Detroit or even anywhere in the US or even North America. It was in Belgium.

The company welcomed 1,326 cars from all over Europe at Ford’s European Proving Grounds in Lommel, Belgium. Ford sold 5,500 Mustangs in Europe over the first half of the year, a 3.7% increase over the same period last year, and the model boasts the best sport-coupe sales in the world. Belgium is Mustang’s largest sales market in Europe.

The gathering, which included examples of every Mustang generation since the model was introduced in 1964, broke the previous record of 960, set in December 2017 also not in the US, but at a Ford facility in Toluca, Mexico.
