Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) Ford Performance has recently revealed at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) a new vehicle based on the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R-C, Ford Mustang GT4, and Ford Performance App.
Ford Mustang GT4, Ford Performance App Introduction
In collaboration with Multimatic Motorsports, the carmaker developed the new offering with the same design language of the Ford GT350R-C, which recently won the 2016 IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC).
The Ford Mustang GT4is equipped with an enhanced version of the 5.2L V8 engine of the Ford GT350R-C. It has a paddle-shifted six-speed sequential transmission and an all-new suspension. Moreover, the new vehicle features a set of 18” Forgeline alloy racing wheels and bodywork modifications that can optimize brake cooling.
Meanwhile, the Ford Performance App is an all-new, data-logging app that improves overall driving experience with the use of smartphones. It will soon be available on most handsets next year, compatible with the Ford Mustang GT4 and other Ford Motor vehicles.
Using the app, users can share their data on social networking platforms or synced to personal computers (PCs) for in-depth data analysis. It works perfectly with the SYNC 3 technology for optimized performance integration.
“The ability to take their track sessions with them everywhere they go and easily share their footage and data with friends is a huge benefit of our new app,” explained Dave Pericak, Ford Performance Global Director, about the new offering.
Ford Mustang GT4 Availability
The Ford Mustang GT4 will be eligible to join the IMSA CTSCC, the GT4 European Series, the Pirelli World Challenge GTS class, and all other competitions exclusively for GT4 vehicles.
Pre-ordering has been announced to start on December 1. Pricing for the Ford Mustang GT4 has not yet been revealed but a Ford Motor spokesperson has confirmed that it will be available for about the same price as other GT4 vehicles— $150,000 to $200,000.
Ford Motor has declined 1.11% on Tuesday, closing the trading session at $11.61.
