23. Ford Mustang
The love affair between car enthusiasts and the Mustang has lasted over 50 years. Ever since they unveiled the first Mustang in April 1964, people haven’t been able to get enough of Detroit’s most famous pony car. Over the years, Ford has produced over nine million Mustangs, making it one of the most successful nameplates in the car industry. The Mustang is a mix of great performance with a V8 engine rumble, a touch of luxury, and good looks. Ford packed it in an affordable package with a long list of options.
The Mustang wasn’t revolutionary in the technical sense since it was just an ordinary Ford Falcon with a fancy body. But they designed and presented its package so perfectly, it caused a sensation. The first Mustang was so successful it started a new class of American cars they still call pony cars. Also, it entered the history books as one of the best first-year car sales of all times. Over the years, the Mustang has become the automotive symbol of America. But most of all, it is one of the finest, most respected products worldwide.
