Many earlier Ford models were “derided” by Germans, but the latest figures prove an unquestionable success in the country’s automotive market, the British Car Magazine stated.
"Germans have fallen in love with the Mustang," Ford Germany managing director Wolfgang Kopplin claimed, as quoted by Left Lane News. "Driving a Mustang GT on the Autobahn is a one of a kind experience for people who love cars."

Still, the report, covering the first months of 2016, shows that the Audi TT’s combined sales surpass that of the Ford Mustang.
The Ford Mustang, originally introduced in America in 1964, first entered the German market in summer 2015, in line with the company’s effort to expand in Europe. Specifically designed for the Euro market, the sixth-generation model has seen a gradual increase in sales since that time.
