Description

100% original, FIA GT4 homologation. One of the 5 Ford factory cars built.

Rarely, in the history of the American motorcar, has a model left quite such a mark in its time… and it is far from being in the past. The Mustang was unveiled for the first time on 17th April 1964 in New York..

It was Ford’s intention to offer the post-war American youth a model which broke away from the heavy and massive style of cars being driven in the United States. Fitted with either a V8 or a straight 6 cylinder the Mustang was immediately synonymous with a sporting image, further confirmed by the various versions prepared over the years by Carroll Shelby.

Prince amongst the Muscle Cars, the Mustang had mixed success over the decades. In 2005 the present model put in its appearance, and the myth took off once more. Personified by a Shelby 500 GT that absolutely oozed pure racing. Different American championships have allowed the Ford Mustang to continue reaping success upon success. This is namely the case in the Grand-Am series, where the Mustang FR500C has become the reference in its category…

Initially designed to take on the Grand-Am series in the United-States, the Mustang FR500GT4 immediately emerged as an excellent work base for the new FIA GT4 category, materialisinginto the FIA GT4 European Cup. Entered respectively by the Canadian team MultimaticMotorsports and the Belgian team Motorsport 98, it did not take long for the American power beast to claim its first victories, both at Oscherslebenand in Spa. The Mustang FR500C GT4 won European GT4 Championship in 2007 and 2008, proof of its potential and superiority.

The chassis #FR500C 05016 was one of the 5 factory cars by Ford with GT4 homologation. This car is 100% original and SRO FIA homologated. This car has been sold by Ford Motorsport to Blackforest American Team. After the Silverstone Meeting in 2008, the car has been completely rebuild and never used in competition again.
