Ford Racing reveals its latest Mustang project

Filed under: Aftermarket, Performance, Ford, Racing

It's always interesting to see what the guys who make and sell speed parts will build to show off their wares. Heck, that's the appeal of the SEMA show in a nutshell. So we're intrigued by this new 2013 Mustang project from Ford Racing, despite its unfortunate color, "Gotta Have It Green," a hue that doesn't exist in the natural world. (Outside of 1980's album covers, that is.)

As reported on Mustangs Daily, the project starts with everyone's favorite Ford V8, the Coyote five-liter, but adds a whole bunch of stuff from the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog, including a 2.3-liter, intercooled, twin-screw Whipple supercharger. The car has a six-speed manual, of course, and there's an 8.8-inch axle out back. It's been lowered an inch, thanks to new FRPP springs paired with matching shocks. Stopping power comes courtesy of a 14-inch, four-piston Brembo setup and Laguna Seca brake duct kit. This project 'Stang is also equipped with a Mustang GT Side Exhaust System, 19-by-9-inch wheels with massive 255/40/ZR19 Pirelli PZero tires, and the Laguna Seca Adjustable Front Splitter.

While we don't see any performance specs for the car, we know the supercharged V8 is good for 624 horsepower and 536 lb-ft of torque.

You can check out all the images of the Ford Racing Mustang project car in our gallery.
