There's something about the classic red sports car that's hard to match. Perhaps that's why Ford decided to celebrate a milestone with its Mustang with just that – a cherry red model rolling off the production line. The iconic vehicle was the 1 millionth made at the manufacturer's Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Detroit, Mich., and was created the same week the brand celebrated its 49th anniversary.
To honor the milestone, the plant built a red 2014 Mustang convertible and drove it off the line to much fanfare. The plant only began operations in 2004, continuing the tradition of producing the top machine.
"Mustang is one of the most beloved nameplates in the industry, with fans around the world and throughout Ford Motor Company," said Rah Nair, group vice president of global product development, as quoted by Auto World News.
With the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang right around the corner – and the 50th year of continuous production now underway – the brand is gearing up to celebrate. Drivers can likely expect a special edition Mustang as well as a next-generation automobile, although there's no word on when these designs will be made public, The Detroit Free Press reports. However, Ford has revealed that 50 other companies will be joining the efforts, releasing special custom products, such as jackets, watches and videogames, to commemorate the anniversary.
