The muscular Ford Mustang GT-R rekindles the legend's road racing glory and the magic of 5.0-liter Mustangs in a stunning racing concept making its world debut today. The Mustang GT-R signals a potential future race car, while honoring four decades of performance glory just days before Mustang's 40th anniversary.
The bright Valencia Orange car, inspired by the famous Grabber Orange 1970 Mustang Boss 302 Trans-Am race cars piloted by race legends, including Parnelli Jones, is a technological showcase that reveals a number of existing or production-feasible racing parts.
Built at Saleen Special Vehicles in Troy, Mich., the car was developed by the same members of the Ford GT Dream Team who are building sub-assemblies and painting body panels for Fords first supercar.
