Ford Australia will revive its factory involvement in Supercars next season through a remarkable new programme that includes bringing the Mustang bodyshape to the series.

The brand completed its withdrawal as an official Supercars manufacturer at the end of the 2015 season, its involvement since then based on licensing agreements with Tickford Racing and DJR Team Penske rather than genuine funding.

It will be the first two-door model to make use of the Gen2 regulations and be powered by the five-litre V8 engine.

The car will developed as a joint venture between both of the current Ford outfits, which opens the door for DJRTP's aerodynamics guru and superstar race engineer Ludo Lacroix to have an influence on the development of the new car.

The Mustang will be a welcome change for the Ford teams, with the now four-year-old FG-X struggling to match the pace of the brand new ZB Commodore.

It will also provide a direct link between Tickford's racing and road car operations, with the brand currently selling street-legal tuned Mustangs.

It's already been a rollercoaster ride for the Mustang in Supercars. Back in 2016, the Ford teams began heavily investigation it as a possible replacement to the FG-X, with the understanding that 2018 was the target for a change.

By early 2017 there was pressure being put on Ford to help fund a new model, with hopes that Roger Penske could use his contacts in the US to get Ford Performance backing. However, at that stage Ford was unmoved on the idea at a Global level.

Penske has since flirted with the idea of bringing a new manufacturer into Supercars, including recent threats of a move to Holden should Ford not come to the party.

This new deal locks the front-running squad into the Blue Oval for the foreseeable future.

“This is an exciting announcement for DJR Team Penske and for the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship,” said Roger Penske.

“We have been working closely with the Ford Motor Company over the past few years and this really builds a lot of momentum for Supercars.

"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. The Mustang brand has such an iconic history in motorsports and it will be great to be racing them in multiple series.”

Ford hasn't put a timeframe on its new commitment to Supercars.
