First images of the new Ford Mustang Supercar during testing

The first images of the new Ford Mustang in Supercar specification has been revealed during testing ahead of its debut next year.

DJR Team Penske completed a first homologation test at Queensland Raceway with drivers Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard behind the wheel.

“First of all, the car looks awesome. It’s going to be so good to see it in Shell V-Power colours next year,” said McLaughlin.

“It’s a great start. It did everything we could expect of a brand-new race car, and the balance feels pretty close to our current package. Having now driven it, I’m massively excited for the 2019 season to begin.”

The team was pleased with the first run, the first of three homologation runs, with staff from Ford Performance Aerodynamics USA also present.

“It’s an encouraging start. The car looks fantastic, and both drivers reported that the car has plenty of promise. We couldn’t be more pleased with how things progressed today,” said Ryan Story, managing director of DJR Team Penske.

The team will continue testing at Phillip Island next week.
