Ford Performance has unveiled its new Mustang GT4, a turnkey racecar that has been created to compete in GT4 series races around the world.

 

The covers have been pulled off at the year’s SEMA Show, showcasing what can be created through a partnership of Ford Performance and Multimatic Motorsports. The car is based upon the Ford Shelby GT350R-C that won the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge last month.

 

The Mustang GT4 has been designed to race in tournaments such as the GT4 European Series, taking on Porsche and Aston Martin among others.

 

David Pericak, global director of Ford Performance, said: “As the Mustang nameplate continually expands its presence in markets throughout the world, so does our relevant motorsport presence.

 

“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 features a 5.2-litre V8 under the bonnet, which has been tuned specifically for GT4 competition. It was created by Ford Performance and Roush Yates Engines.

 

In addition to the vast powerplant, the Mustang GT4 also features a six-speed Hollinger paddle shift transmission and a ZF-developed twin-plate racing clutch. It also has a large rear wing, aggressive front splitter and a diffuser, all of which contribute towards the car’s downforce and high-speed stability. A fully FIA-compliant roll cage has been fitted to the inside of the car, as has a race-orientated dash logger.
