The Ford Motor Company is bringing back its legendary Mustang Mach 1 car. The classic sports car was first made in 1964. It is one of the most recognisable cars ever produced. It has starred in many movies, such as "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift" in 2006. It has also played a central role in American TV shows. The new Mach 1 has a high-performance engine. A Ford spokesman said: "Mach 1 has a special place in Mustang history. Like the original, the all-new Mustang Mach 1 will be true to its heritage. It will deliver great looks and [be the best racing] Mustang ever."
The Mustang is a stylish, sporty convertible. In 1964, Ford predicted it would sell 100,000 cars a year. However, the Mustang became the most successful car since the Ford Model A in 1927. Ford had sold over one million Mustangs by 1966. The car was very popular. People called it a "muscle car". Other car companies copied it. They made the Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. A journalist said: "The heritage of the Mach 1 invokes a sense of speed." Ford is hoping the Mach 1 will stay in people's hearts.
