Ford Mustang is world's best-selling sports coupe, again

Ford Mustang is world's best-selling sports coupe, again

The Mustang Supercars program will be overseen by the company's global performance operation, Ford Performance, which has also been launched in Australia and New Zealand as an official brand.

"We've been working with the teams to ensure they have the best technical support to make Mustang a victor", said Ford Australia boss Graeme Whickman at a launch event for the Ford Performance brand in Melbourne.

While sports cars have traditionally skewed toward male buyers in the United States, Mustang is increasingly finding favour with women. Since 2011, the Mustang has won all but one of the seasons it raced under the colors of Team Penske in that competition.

The 2018 model Mustang, which was also unveiled on Tuesday, was deemed by Ford the ideal fit for the Gen2 regulations.

"We're announcing a new chapter in Ford Australia's commitment to motoring enthusiasts", Graeme Whickman, Ford Australia President and CEO, said.

Ulster players release statement on Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding departure
A former Ulster and Irish worldwide has called on rugby authorities to explain why they sacked Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding . Where to next for Jackson and Olding was discussed on this week's The Hard Yards rugby show, a JOE podcast.

This won't be the first Ford Mustang to have a Monster sticker on it, that's for sure. In an environment of relatively flat sports vehicle sales to women, Ford research shows a 10 per cent gain in women buying Mustang in the last five years.

"Ford's dedication to the technical aspects of this process will continue to raise the bar for DJR Team Penske and the other Ford teams".

"I know Australians, New Zealanders and our fans around the world will be just as excited as I am to see the Mustang take to our tracks in the world's best Touring auto racing".

To celebrate Mustang's popularity, and to mark its 54anniversary, Ford Middle East unveiled a stunning mosaic made of up of hundreds of regional Mustang fan photos neatly arranged to form the Pony car's iconic emblem, an exceptionally unique creation presented for the first time ever in the region. Part of the Ford Performance 2018 Mustang RTR team, they are believed to feature 1000bhp V8 engines and some rather special suspension and braking systems that allow them to be driven at the most ludicrous speeds and angles.

"Ford Performance is about technology, innovation and product performance and to showcase our confidence in our performance range, we are bringing Mustang and the Ranger Raptor to the Supercars series in 2019".
