Unveiled amid the automotive extravagance that is the SEMA custom and performance car show in Las Vegas, the Ford Mustang GT4 comes with the promise of being eligible for any GT4 race series in the world. It is due to take to the tracks on both sides of the pond from 2017.
The newest pony car aims to offer privateer racers an “affordable” package in the professional/amateur GT4 series. The car is based on the Shelby GT350R-C which won its IMSA class in its first year of competition in 2016, though Ford insists it is mostly a new car.
Power comes from a 5.2-litre V8 with Holinger paddle-shift transmission, suspension is by Multimatic Motorsports, 8x11 Forgeline wheels with racing slicks are fitted and there’s a full roll cage. The aero package includes new rear wing, aggressive splitter, additional bonnet venting and a new rear diffuser.
