Phil Morgan, head of, says:

"In line with the new Fast and Furious movie this year, we wanted to look at what sports cars are the most popular around the world, and also how this differs by country. We're not surprised about the Ford Mustang coming out on top, but maybe more surprised by the BMW i8 being 35 countries' favourite. This is what makes these pieces of research so great - you can never predict the results!"

The Ford Mustang is the name given to the series of American automobiles that have been in production since 1964 and is also the longest-produced Ford car nameplate.

As for the BMW i8, it was only released in 2014 and is a plug-in hybrid sports car, which came to the end of production in 2020.
