Dick Johnsons Bathurst Mustang revealed
Ford fans will get to see Ford Australia's latest addition to the Mustang range when Dick Johnson takes to the track at Bathurst for a series of demonstration laps in the all new R-SPEC Mustang. Will Davidson and Cam Waters have been confirmed as the drivers that will join Johnson on track for the demonstration, in GT and Eco-boost variants of the Mustang respectively.
The new Mustang will be one of only 500 made and is a result of a collaboration between Ford Australia and Herrod Performance. Each of the new supercharged Mustang R-SPEC's will be individually numbered and badged.
“Herrod Performance is so proud to be able to work with Ford on this special collaboration, bringing a unique Mustang R-SPEC equipped with genuine Ford Performance Parts, and honed with the expertise of both Ford Australia and Herrod Performance teams,” said Rob Herrod, Managing Director, Herrod Performance.
