FORD Australia has teased a preview of the car that will carry its fortunes in Supercars from 2019.
The render of the 2019 Supercars-spec Ford Mustang hit social media on the eve of this year’s Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000, the last for the marque’s venerable Falcon FG X.
“2019 doesn’t know what it’s in for, but here’s a taste,” read the tweet from Ford Australia.

The car is being jointly developed by DJR Team Penske and Tickford Racing in conjunction with Ford Performance, an alliance announced in April.
Although it had been mooted that the car could have been ready in time to be shown off at Mount Panorama, the car may not make its public debut until its nears time for Supercars’ aerodynamic parity testing at the end of the year.
The Mustang will nevertheless have a presence at Bathurst this year, with a GT4-spec version set to take part in a time-attack demonstration against a Supercars-spec Falcon FG X and Ford’s Le Mans 24 Hours-winning GT, set to be driven by Ryan Briscoe.
