New Mustang Supercar breaks cover ahead of its racing debut next year

Next year is an exciting year for Ford Fans in Australia. The Ford Mustang is set to hit the track in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship. Today, Ford fans have been given a first look at what the new Mustang Supercar will look like.

The first Mustang Supercar has been turning laps at Queensland Raceway, with the team from DJR Penske shaking down the car. This is their first of three homologation tests, with another test scheduled for Phillip Island later in the week. A straight line test against the Commodore and Altima Supercars will be held later in the year, to help with homologation.

Both DJR Penske drivers Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard have spend time behind the wheel.

The Mustang replacing the outgoing FGX Falcon in next year’s Championship. All current Ford teams are expected to switch to the new Mustang in 2019. This Mustang racer is being co-developed by the US arm of Ford Performance, DJR Team Penske, and Tickford Racing.

    I was afraid it was going to look like that…

    Not easy to put a low slung coupe body on a sedan chassis/cage.

      Yeah, proportions-wise the NASCAR versions seem to be (and I never thought I’d say this) closer to the production model.

        Less ridiculous anyway

    We’re gonna start seeing that massive wing on Mustangs at car shows in the near future. I guarantee it.
