A Vintage Ford Mustang Displayed at The Peninsula Arcade

This summer, antique car aficionados can move into top gear for a memorable experience. Courtesy of the Shanghai Auto Museum, The Peninsula Arcade is exhibiting one of the world’s most-beloved cars, the 1966 Ford Mustang, throughout the end of the year. The Ford Mustang is the second vintage car to be showcased at The Peninsula Shanghai as part of a distinctive partnership with the Shanghai Auto Museum, the first dedicated auto museum in China.

On display, the iconic “pony car” with its galloping wild pony emblem marks the 50th anniversary of the original Ford Mustang launched by the Ford Motor Company at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. The Ford Mustang has been one of the world’s favourite cars in the past half century, with more than nine million cars sold. Appearing in thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, the Ford Mustang has achieved numerous milestones in the last 50 years and continues to inspire passion among drivers like no other car.

The Peninsula Shanghai’s dedication to automobile history is legendary as the only luxury hotel in Shanghai with a customised car fleet including four EWB Rolls-Royce Phantoms, a restored 1934 Rolls-Royce Phantom II, six BMW Peninsula Edition cars and two custom-made MINI Cooper S Clubman cars, all finished in signature Peninsula racing green. For automobile enthusiasts, The Peninsula Shanghai’s Academy programme offers guests to enjoy the China Motor City experience with a chauffeured ride and a private tour of the Shanghai Auto Museum to discover the history of showcased cars.
