Today’s muscle cars have a menacing look. David Pericak on Ford’s new Mustang GT4:
As the Mustang nameplate continually expands its presence in markets throughout the world, so does our relevant motorsport presence. The Mustang GT4 is equipped to compete and win on tracks around the globe, and we expect it to be as popular with racers as its production sibling is with consumers.
The Mustang GT4 is equipped with the next generation, naturally aspirated 5.2L V8 racing engine specifically tuned for GT4 competition. The race engine was engineered, validated and built by Ford Performance in partnership with Roush Yates Engines. A lightweight, compact six-speed Holinger paddle shift transmission delivers proven race durability with direct-pneumatic activation for fast, positive and consistent gear shifts. The GT4 powertrain also carries a dry sump oiling system, ZF-developed twin-plate racing clutch and flywheel.
Lots of words that mean ‘menacing look.’
All that muscle and not a word about horsepower.
