Ford reveals new seventh generation Mustang Supercar

After it was teased during Ford’s launch of the road-going seventh-generation Mustang last month, the Supercars Gen3 iteration was formally unveiled at Bathurst today.

Joining the Chevrolet Camaro as the two inaugural models as part of the Repco Supercars Championship enters its Gen3 era, the Mustang incorporates many of the road-going equivalent’s tough stance.

Five-time Australian Touring Car Championship winner Dick Johnson will give the seventh-generation Mustang Gen3 its on-track debut at the Mountain later today. It’s Johnson’s team, which have homologated the new model alongside Ford Performance.

Ford Performance Motorsports Global Director Mark Rushbrook was excited to reveal Ford’s latest Supercars challenger via video link as the build up to next year’s Gen3 debut continues.

“It is fantastic to be able to show, for the very first time globally, the seventh-generation Mustang in racing form,” Rushbrook said.

“The reveal of the Mustang Supercar is the first of many, with Mustang to race in GT3, GT4, NASCAR and NHRA competition globally.

“Mustang has been an iconic brand on and off the track for 58 years and its legend will continue around the world.

“We always say Mustang was born to race, and that is more true today than ever.

“The Mustang GT Supercar is ready to race in 2023.”

Its debut will be on the streets of Newcastle on March 11, 2023 as Walkinshaw Andretti United joins Dick Johnson Racing, Grove Racing and Blanchard Racing Team as Ford representatives in the championship.

Ford Australia and New Zealand President and CEO Andrew Birkic was on hand to usher the Blue Oval into its new era of Australian motorsport involvement.

“We’re very proud to be showing the world our new Mustang Supercar,” Birkic said.

“What better place to do it than at the Great Race here at Mount Panorama.

“It’s a special moment to be able to uncover this car in front of passionate Ford fans, alongside all of our Supercars drivers.

“It’s very fitting that Dick will take the car for its first laps this afternoon.

“He’s a legend of the sport, and an incredible ambassador for Ford.

“This car looks sensational, it’s loud, it’s fast and we can’t wait to see it hit the track.”
