Must have Mustangs drive the special relationship

Must have Mustangs drive the special relationship - News

  • Mustangs proving to be the most popular of US muscle cars with UK motorists
  • The monstrous American motor is a hit with those looking to emulate Hollywood stars like Steve McQueen
  • lets petrolheads drive a range of stateside V8s

Mustangs are the most popular American Muscle Cars for Brits to drive, according to new data.

The research from our most recent sales information here on Driving Experience reveals that the iconic US motor, which has featured in some of Hollywood's most loved films, makes up a third of all our muscle car bookings - all this despite the fact we have a wide range of other monstrous Stateside motors available.

Indeed, our Ultimate Mustang Experience with Hot Lap, which lets petrolheads drive three awesome V8s such as a 1965 Shelby Mustang GT350, a 2005 Ford Mustang GT500 and an original 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500, accounts for a third of all our bookings.

Alex MacGregor from says: "Mustangs are cemented in modern motoring culture, and their popularity is clearly reflected by car lovers who want to experience for themselves the awesome power behind the wheel of a V8."

"No surprise really, as Mustangs have been a prominent feature in American culture, often being the star of the silver screen. This includes being driven by some of the country's top stars like Steve McQueen in the 1968 thriller, Bullitt, through to more recent action in Transformers."

Even our second most popular muscle car package, the Triple American Muscle Blast with High Speed Passenger Ride, accounts for nearly a quarter of all our bookings, with Mustangs featuring prominently.

Alex adds: "The desire to get in the driver's seat of a cult classic like the Ford Mustang and let loose on the track is extremely popular with Brits who want to feel the power these American cars have to offer."

Head to our American Muscle Cars page on the Driving Experience website to book your next driving day in a Mustang, Chevrolet or Dodge using our Events Calendar or purchasing one of our gift vouchers.
