Meet Ford Racing’s 2013 Mustang Project Car

Ford Racing knows that the best way to sell parts is to let people see them on a car. For that reason they have built quite a few project cars over the years that serve as rolling examples of what can be done with parts from the FRPP catalog. Ford Racing isn’t afraid to prove their their cars’ merits, either. Their last project, a supercharged 2011 Mustang GT, set a record for the fast production car for a close half mile course a little over a year ago at Bristol Motor Speedway.

With the launch of the 2013 Mustang, though, it’s time for a new project. The car, featuring the new Gotta Have It Green paint color, actually made its debut alongside the 2013 Mustang Cobra Jet and Boss 302SX Concept at the PRI Show back in December, but this is the first time we’ve got official details and photos from Ford Racing. Like its predecessor, the 2013 Mustang has the FRPP 2.3-liter supercharger system under the hood as well as a variety of other performance upgrades including upgraded Brembo front brakes, an adjustable FRPP suspension system, tubular rear lower control arms and more. The exterior is fairly subtle, featuring black Track Pack wheels and a Boss 302 Laguna Seca front splitter.

You can see a full list of upgrades and photos of the Ford Racing 2013 Mustang project car below.
