Ford Mustang Supercar revealed: first real look at super 'Stang
Here it is, folks; your first proper look at the Ford Mustang Supercar that will race in the 2019 Supercars Championship. You remember it, Iu0027m sure. This was the very car that, when revealed in camouflaged guise, sparked gasps across the nation over its stretched and swollen body shape that looked little like its road-going namesake. The reason is that itu0027s not actually a liveried Mustang, but rather stretches those styling influences over Supercarsu0027 Gen 2 control chassis (one originally designed for a four-door sedan). But, from where weu0027re sitting at least, this finished product looks a lot sweeter than that camouflaged car. u201cToday is when we show the fans what the Mustang Supercar really looks like, ready for the 2019 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship,u201d says Shell V-Power Racing Team Principal, Ryan Story.
In total, six Mustangs will enter the 2019 series, and weu0027ll see what each will look like in their liveries at the Phillip Island test event on February 14. u201cThis is an historic moment,u201d says Ford Australia president and CEO, Kay Hart. u0022To see the project come together has been incredibly exciting for everyone involved, and today marks the start of Mustangu2019s 2019 season.

Scott McLaughlin declaring it a u0022weaponu0022. u201cBeing able to defend my title in the new Ford Mustang as it returns to touring car racing in Australia is very exciting for me, for the team, and everyone thatu2019s in a Ford Mustang,u0022 he says. u201cI think weu2019ve got a weapon on our hands and Iu2019m just looking forward to getting on with it.
