Ford Performance just pulled the wraps off one of the most badass looking Mustangs to date, but this one is for the track. The Ford Mustang GT4, as its name suggests, will compete around the globe in the FIA GT4 series.

Strapped with a purpose-built 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 motor (developed together with Roush Yates Engines) up front, the GT4 receives extensive aerodynamic bodywork. Extra downforce is provided by the front splitter, hood vents, diveplanes, rear diffuser as well as a massive rear wing inspired by the Ford GT racing programme.2016 Ford Mustang GT4 - AutoBuzz.my

We don’t have information on the performance figures yet, but the six-speed Holinger paddle shift transmission is supposedly race-proven and is direct-pneumatic activated. The flywheel and twin-plate racing clutch is co-developed with ZF. The chassis now gets Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers from Multimatic, who also supplies the front and rear stabiliser bars as well as rear lower control arms (designed specifically for coil-overs). The 18″ x 11″ wheels are from Forgeline, whereas the brake rotors and six-piston callipers are by Brembo.

On the inside, the Mustang GT4 is equipped with a roll cage that is full FIA-compliant, including a racing dash logger from MoTeC. This Mustang will go head to head against race giants such as Porsche, Aston Martin and Ferrari.2016 Ford Mustang GT4 - AutoBuzz.my

Can we have a road-legal variant of the GT4, please?
