At the Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground in Belgium, with the help of Mustang owners from all over Europe, Ford has set a new world record with 1,326 Mustang's gathered in a single parade, smashing their previous record of 960 vehicles set back in December 2017.
The Mustangs were driven in an uninterrupted convoy with no more than 20 metres between them. Vehicles and drivers also participated in a special choreography to celebrate Mustang’s 55th anniversary this year.

More Mustangs are sold in Belgium than any other country in Europe, thus Ford’s choice to host the record attempt at the Lommel Proving Ground.
Lommel Proving Ground
Ford’s Lommel Proving Ground is where the company refines the sustainability, technology and driving dynamics of its vehicles in Europe. The facility covers an area of 3.22 km and features 80 kilometres (50 miles) of track, some of which is designed to simulate public roads, while other tracks feature differing road surfaces enabling engineers to evaluate handling, braking, ride and comfort.
More than 100 staff from the facility volunteered as marshals and support to help Ford’s world record-breaking attempt run smoothly.
