Ford gifts Saudi woman 'dream' Mustang after ban on women driving is lifted

SAUDI ARABIA - When the decades-old ban on women driving was lifted in Saudi Arabia, Sahar Hasan Nasif wanted to drive her dream car: a 2018 Ford Mustang GT convertible finished in stunning Triple Yellow Tri Coat.

Her dream is now a reality. Ford delivered the Mustang to Nasif, a retired English professor, this week.

“This is just amazing. From the announcement of the decree on lifting the ban last September, to actually having my very own Mustang, it really is a dream come true. I still can’t believe it,” said Nasif.

“I just love the Mustang. From the moment I rented one in California in 1999, I knew I wanted my very own Mustang,” she said. “I loved the seats, the shape, the roar (of the engine), the fact it was a convertible; I loved everything about it and still do.”

Sahar caught the attention of Ford Middle East last September when she was quoted in leading news outlets that the lifting of the ban would mean she could finally buy and drive her own dream car, a Ford Mustang in yellow and black – almost 20 years after falling in love with it.

Her quote, which was also tweeted, resonated with Ford Middle East who reacted swiftly by offering Sahar her dream Mustang. The order was placed, and Sahar’s 2018 Mustang GT Convertible in Triple Yellow Tri Coat with a black accent package rolled off the Flat Rock Assembly line in Michigan in March.
