Own a racing team? Or are you a driver for one? Either way, if you’re involved in racing GT cars, you might want to check out the Ford Mustang GT4. This car is out of the box ready for racing, meets various regulations for competitions around the world and is suitable for GT4 European Series.
The Mustang GT4 puts Ford head-to-head with competition from Porsche and Aston Martin among others – in a mirror of the hugely popular FIA World Endurance Championship, where the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GT takes on the Aston Martin Vantage GTE, Porsche 911 RSR and Ferrari 488 GTE
It’s inspired by the Ford Shelby GT350R-C that won the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge championship just last month.
“As the Mustang nameplate continually expands its presence in markets throughout the world, so does our relevant motorsport presence,” explained David Pericak, global director of Ford Performance. “The Mustang GT4 is equipped to compete and win on tracks around the globe, and we expect it to be as popular with racers as its production sibling is with consumers.”
The Mustang GT4 is equipped with the next generation, naturally aspirated 5.2L V8 racing engine specifically tuned for GT4 competition. The race engine was engineered, validated and built by Ford Performance in partnership with Roush Yates Engines.
A lightweight, compact six-speed Holinger paddle shift transmission delivers proven race durability with direct-pneumatic activation for fast, positive and consistent gear shifts. The GT4 powertrain also carries a dry sump oiling system, ZF-developed twin-plate racing clutch and flywheel.
