This news came after Ford Mustang was adjudged as world's selling Sports coupe for third consecutive year. Ford sold 125,809 Mustangs in more than 80 countries a year ago.

The Mustang has also been gaining traction in China and thanks to 7,125 local registrations, was the nation's best-selling sports vehicle also. The most common setup worldwide is the Mustang GT with the 5.0-liter V8 motor, normally.

"The world loves Ford Mustang", says Erich Merkle, Ford sales analyst.

Speaking at the launch of Ford Performance in Melbourne today Ford Australia president Graeme Whickman announced the new Fiesta ST will be an important part of the new sub-brand, sitting alongside the Ranger Raptor, Mustang and new Focus ST. "It could only be found on TV or the Internet, and now it rolls down streets from Beijing to São Paulo".

Ford is back, and this time it's bringing the Mustang to Supercars racing in 2019. He further added that they are adding America's favourite sports auto with America's top stock racing series.

"I think this is good timing for us, especially as we look at how Fusion is still performing with four race wins so far this year early in the season, that we felt we didn't want to bring out a new vehicle until we knew we could do it right and make a good step forward", he said.
