The Ford Mustang Supercar has been officially unveiled ahead of the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship
The wraps are off, and the 2019 Ford Mustang Supercar has been revealed ahead of its track debut at the Superloop Adelaide 500 on the 14th of February.
The Mustang Supercar replaces the Ford Falcon FGX supercar, which the racing Mustang shares much of its underpinnings. The Mustang was designed, engineered and homologated by Ford Australia, Ford Performance, Shell V-Power Racing and Tickford Racing, after getting the approval from Supercars in December. Help was brought in from various experts in the United States, who have developed the ‘Stang for NASCAR and NHRA as well as the Mustang GT4.
A total of six Mustangs will appear on the grid, with two from each of the aforementioned teams.
“For Supercars, the Mustang ushers in a new era,” said Supercars CEO, Sean Seamer. “It’s a product that you see readily on the road, it’s been super successful for Ford globally and here in Australia, and it gives the opportunity to reach younger and older generations with a fantastic looking race car.”
We wonder what else will be appearing on the Supercars grid in the coming years…
