It's got a sleek and sexy body - and its 50 years-old! The Ford Mustang is celebrating its 50th anniversary - and it still turns heads like never before. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MUSTANG OWNER CHRIS JOHNSON SAYING: "How can you not look good in this car, anytime you pull up to a stop it always brings smiles to faces from everybody around you." Mustang enthusiasts like Chris Johnson have descended on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. (SOUNDBITE) (English) HAKAN HEDBERG, SWEDEN MUSTANG CLUB, SAYING: "I have never seen so many Mustangs in the same place." But the party doesn't just belong to Las Vegas - Mustang is celebrating internationally. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MARSHALL ELVIE, FRANCE MUSTANG CLUB, SAYING: "I love very much the Mustang and last week in France there was a 50th anniversary celebration there too." It's fast and it's furious. Car sales set records for Ford, with more than a half a million units sold in 1966 alone. Wth everlasting appeal, Ford has decided to sell the new 2015 Mustang globally for the first time, rather than make non-North American buyers import the car.
