Ford Performance is showcasing the Mustang’s racing potential with the unveiling of a racing variant of the pony car at SEMA.

The Ford Mustang GT4 race car is based on the Shelby GT350 R-C Mustang, a car with a few podium finishes already under its belt after its first year racing in a number of North American series.

Unlike its Shelby counterpart however, the Mustang GT4 is designed to meet global racing regulations and eligible for races such as the European GT4 and Pirelli World Challenge.

Power comes from a 5.2-litre V8 carried over from the Shelby GT350 and GT350R. It produces 392kW (526hp) and 429 lb-ft (581Nm), channeled to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox.

Fully race-prep, the Mustang GT4 comes complete with a front splitter, side skirt extensions, rear diffuser and fixed rear wing. It also boasts a vented bonnet, full roll cage and a racing suspension tuned by Multimatic Motorsports.
