This is the Ford Mustang GT4 racecar

Going racing? You might want this mightily winged Mustang GT4

Plenty of manufacturers offer their own customer racecars for GT4 racing. Though, none of them have been a Mustang.

Until now. Ford has used SEMA to show off its new ‘global’ Mustang racer, significant as such dedicated motorsport models have previously been solely enjoyed by its native American audience.

It is based upon the Shelby GT350R-C, a car which already has American motorsport success on its CV. The Mustang GT4 can run in a number of competitions, including European GT4, the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and the Pirelli World Challenge.

You want specs? The GT4 runs a 5.2-litre V8 engine linked to a six-speed paddleshift gearbox, while Multimatic Motorsports – who helped the Ford GT racecar win so much this year – have fettled the chassis. Forgeline provide the 18in wheels, while you’ll no doubt have clocked the starkly appointed spoilers and splitters that give the GT4 the aerodynamic profile it needs to properly compete.

So, budding racers: would you want a ‘Stang? Or would a Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport do you nicely?
