After 64 years and six generations, Ford built this week the 10,000,000th example of its iconic Mustang.
After this time and ten million units, the muscle car has become synonymous with America as fast food chains, shell eagles and inability to make a good recreation of British sitcoms.
Over the seriously impressive production area there have been some good versions and some not so good but also some that have been amazing. We take a look at the latter of the …

The original Mustang came as a result of a five-step card that was handed over to Ford's three design studios – build a "small" car that can seat four people, have bucket seats, have a floor mounted gear, weighs less than 1100 kg and no longer than 4.57 meters. The final result was the icon we all know and love today.
The V8 engine with top motors produced 271bhp and 423Nm torque – a lot of car for the time. This performance, combined with the car's great looks and relative practicality, made it a great sales success.
General Motors and other Ford rivals were not prepared for Mustang's triumph, and struggling to make their own pony cars to try and fetch themselves. Some good mo Deller appeared as a result, but no one created a legacy like Mustang.

He is working on tuning magic on the pony car. Shelby created the Mustang GT350 – another name plate that has survived to this day.
4.7-liter V8 was enhanced to have an output of 306bhp and the initial 1965 was built without comfort or easy driving taken into account at all. The updated 1966 model made the GT350 a little more user-friendly, but it still has its roots as a full performance version. 1945 Ford Mustang Mach 1

 Ok, so the second generation Ford Mustang was quite quite a bit like that. shambolic. Not only had big boots to fill in the form of the first classic first generation, but it came under American misery for vehicles – when the oil crisis left the manufacturers who made major power outages, while competing with the growing threat of European and Japanese usurpers.
It produced a hit in its four-year production round – King Cobra. It still did not get much power, despite a 5.0-liter V8 engine, but it took the least appearance. Big shots came while sticker packages were included in the selection list to get visual presence back to the car.
Sales proved successful, with over 4000 sold despite the limited edition status. Ford quickly jumped on this moment to introduce a third generation Mustang later in 1979.

Mustang Introduction of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
Traditionally, the pony car was known for its roaring V8 engines, or a straight-six because they were looking for a little more efficiency. Even though the oil crisis had just passed, American manufacturers began to turn to small capacity engines to provide better efficiency. Although the 2.3 liter unit produced only 175 bhp, SVO had all the capabilities in the GT width of handling to exceed it, while returning respectable fuel economy.
It may have taken 21 years for a turbocharged four-cylinder to be accepted in a Mustang, but it turned out that the muscles not only need a V8 to be serious fun.

The latest Mustang SVT Cobra R can only be the best of the gang. With the name plate originally launched in 1993 for the third generation Mustang and followed up three years later, at this point it became a favorite of fans.
Only 300 examples were made by the 385bhp, which also received a host of upgrades. Unplanned suspension gave the car severe swing resistance, while large brakes meant that you would not find yourself kitting the kitty if you were going to walk a little too hot around the track.
Oh, and of course it's the giant backwind. Unfortunately, Cobra R has not yet made a comeback, but never say never …

Ford Mustang GT 19659005 Ford Mustang's fourth generation had some mixed reception to say the least. Fortunately, this was made up when the fifth generation model was launched in 2005.
This iteration of the car did just everything. Not only did it look with its epic retro aesthetics, but it had the performance to match. The GT model's 4.6-liter V8 produced 300bhp and 434Nm of torque and 0-60mph was handled for a fast 5.6 seconds.
On the back side, it is clear that this is the model that put Mustang back on the 21st century path.

Ford showed this in 2012, with the introduction of Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca. While the Shelby GT500 was for those who wanted pure horsepower, the Boss 302 reduced the weight, put a good deal of handling-focused goodies and – in the case of the Laguna Seca car – an aerodynamic bodywork to keep it on track. 19659035] True, it was still quite big and maybe not as flexible as European and Japanese rivals, but it showed the world the muscle car had gone on from the days that focused on straight line performance.

While the Mustang has always been a bit of a working class hero, the GT350R was really at the other end of the scale.
Only 37 examples of this hardcore machine were built, with chassis number one selling at $ 1 million auction (around £ 775,000).
The lucky people who grabbed the keys to the GT350R got a lot of bang for t heing buck though, with 5.2-liter V8 producing 526bhp and 581Nm of torque. This special mustang was less of a pony and more of a stallion.
