The most desirable classic car in Europe isn’t a Jaguar E-Type or some fancy Ferrari, but an American icon: the Ford Mustang.
The findings come from a survey of 75,000 users of online car portal AutoScout24 which revealed that a total of 37 percent of Europeans surveyed chose the Ford Mustang as the classic car they would most like to own. The Ford Mustang beat out the BMW M1 (20 percent) and the Volkswagen Beetle (11 percent).

The Ford Mustang will be heading to the European markets for the first time soon and it’s clear that European automotive enthusiasts embrace one of America’s favorite sports cars.
In addition, the American automaker announced that its Mustang Customizer mobile app has attracted over 500,000 visits from Europe. The Mustang was originally launched in 1964 and has made nearly 3,000 movie and television appearances around the world over the decades. Next year, the sports car will celebrate its 50th anniversary.
