About This Product:
In 2019, the Ford Mustang GT made its return to racing in the Supercars Championship and its success was immediate.
After winning on debut at the Adelaide 500, the Mustang went on to race for four full time seasons by some of the biggest teams in the sport including Shell V-Power Racing Team and Tickford Racing who enjoyed the most success with the make.
From 2019 to 2022 the Mustang took the challenge right up to rival Holden teams, and in many cases, eclipsed them, winning 54 races, 181 podiums, 82 pole positions, 2 drivers championships and taking out the biggest race of all, the Bathurst 1000 in 2019. Star drivers to win races in the Mustang during that time included the dominant Scott McLaughlin who led the Mustang charge along with Cam Waters, Fabian Coulthard, Will Davison, Anton De Pasquale, Chaz Mostert, Jack Le Brocq and Alexandre Premat.
Authentic Collectables are proud to present this special collectable scale model, the DNA of Mustang Celebration Livery celebrates the racing achievements for the Mustang in the premier category of Australian motorsport, featuring a livery on this edition by renowned designer/illustrator Tristan Groves.
"When you think of Mustang the iconic pony badge and graphic imagery instantly comes to mind, so it makes total sense for the design of this celebration livery to be largely centred around a stylised pony which looks fast and aggressive" said Groves.
"That combined with the colour scheme, Ford / Ford Performance logos, the statistics and years on the roof with the winning drivers list on the boot make this a really special edition celebrating the Mustang in Supercars from 2019 to 2022, one I hope Ford Mustang fans will love adding to their collections".
The livery speaks for itself and as an added little nod to the storied history of the Mustang, we have decided to model the car using the originally approved for racing rear wing design featuring the larger end plates which was eventually updated later in 2019 and into 2020 due to category parity concerns.
Ford fans, this model shouldn't be missed.
