Following this morning’s confirmation of Supercars’ new Gen3 regulation details and the reveal that General Motors Specialty Vehicles will be on the grid with a Chevrolet Camaro, the series has unveiled renders of what the Ford Mustang would look like produced to the same regulations.
The series of renders has also been penned by Peter Hughes, showcasing next-gen Mustangs dressed in the liveries currently worn by Rick Kelly and Cameron Waters. Absent from the renders is DJR Team Penske.
The illustrations are a strong indication that Ford could continue to support the category. The brand had previously stated that it would consider stepping away from the series if it was the only manufacturer tipping in support.
Speaking about the reveal, new Ford Australia and New Zealand president and CEO Andrew Birkic made strong indication that the brand would continue to support Supercars.
“Ford and Supercars share a rich heritage and a strong future, and we’re excited that fans, today, can see how that’s developing for 2022 and beyond,” said Birkic.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Sean Seamer and the team at Supercars on our common goal of Ford competing in a highly competitive, entertaining and accessible series.
“We’ve said before that Ford Performance exists to win races and series that matter, and the development of the Gen3 rules is an opportunity to ensure that fans in Australia continue to enjoy a world-class Supercars series that delivers the spectacle and intense competition that has made it worth winning and, ultimately, great to watch.”
