Race Ready: Ford Mustang GT4 Turnkey Race Car is actually an International Player
What’s which you say? You’d love to campaign a GT4 car in a racing series, yet the IPO of your emoji-based medical software company as well as the stress of defending your indoor surfing title leaves no time to prep a car? We’re here to tell you which Ford has got your back with its Global Mustang GT4, a turnkey race car. Based on the Shelby GT350R-C—which just happens to be fresh off a class-winning run inside the 2016 IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge—the Mustang GT4 is actually configured to put you on the starting grid of any GT4 series inside the globe. which’s on display which week at the 2016 SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Relying on a 5.2-liter V-8 as well as a six-speed Holinger paddle-shift transmission for motivation, Ford called on some of the industry’s best-known names to fill inside the blanks when preparing your vehicle for the competition: Multimatic chipped in using a set of dampers, lower rear control arms, as well as a stabilizer bar tuned specifically for the GT4 setup, as well as Forgeline supplies the 18-by-11-inch rolling stock.
The Internal features an FIA-compliant full roll cage. Race-ready engine control as well as an ABS controller permit fine tuning of performance characteristics, while a Motec dash logger lets you keep track of your results. The front splitter, additional hood venting, rear diffuser, as well as a massive rear wing harness the power of aerodynamics in name of speed as well as grip. Although they’re optimized for on-track performance, we quite frankly find the purposeful fitment of the aero bits to be quite flattering to the Mustang’s profile, as well as we wouldn’t be surprised if some of the subtler elements find their way to the street.
