Saddle up Australia. A new Pony is entering the track. Introducing the Ford Mustang Supercar, in Ford Performance livery. The Mustang Supercar will be competing in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship from 2019.

The first car is one of DJR Team Penske’s existing Falcon FG Xs which was fabricated into the first Mustang Supercar at the team’s base in Stapylton, Queensland.

Under Supercars rules, the Mustang bodywork must be designed to fit over the category’s control chassis, which has been in place since 2013.

The control chassis means teams can convert cars from one model to another by changing the required outer and inner paneling and associated bracketry.

Chassis DJRTP 02, which was used for Supercars’ tire and aerodynamic testing last year, will become the first Mustang Supercar.

It is currently the team’s second spare, last raced as a Falcon FG X in Fabian Coulthard’s hands during 2016.

DJRTP worked in conjunction with Ford Performance in the United States on the body.
