Ford is bringing back its legendary Mustang Mach 1 car. The classic sports car is one of the most famous cars ever made. It has starred in many movies and has also played a central role in American TV shows. The new Mach 1 has a high-performance engine. A spokesman said: "Mach 1 has a special place in Mustang history. Like the original...it will deliver great looks and [be the best racing] Mustang ever."

The Mustang is a stylish, sporty convertible. In 1964, Ford thought it would sell 100,000. The Mach 1 became the most successful car since 1927. Ford sold over one million of them in two years. People called it a "muscle car". Other car companies copied it. Chevrolet made the Camaro and Pontiac made the Firebird. A journalist said: "The heritage of the Mach 1 invokes a sense of speed." Ford hopes the Mach 1 will stay in people's hearts.
