Video: Making of the NASCAR Mustang Part 1
Designing the 2019 Ford NASCAR Mustang was a huge responsibility. Working closely with Ford Performance engineers, a team of Ford Performance designers created a vehicle that honors its Mustang heritage while optimizing for performance.
One of the key parts of the development process for the new NASCAR Cup Mustang was pairing the Ford Design Center with Ford Performance motorsports aero specialists to create a look for the Mustang that was true to its heritage, but also competitive for race competition. Team members met on a daily basis for months to get the NASCAR Mustang’s design to where it is today, ready to debut at Daytona.
This is the first in a two-part series that follows the process of bringing Ford’s iconic pony car, Mustang, to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The Ford NASCAR Mustang debuts 2.10.19 at Daytona.
