Mustang Supercar: technical deep dive gallery

We get up close and personal in Wheels’ March edition

Mustang Supercar T Jpg

IT’S NOT often that you get unfettered access to a brand new Supercar, much less one that’s caused the sort of stir generated by Ford’s new Mustang. Nonetheless, Bruce Newton has leveraged his formidable industry contacts book to bring you the goods on the controversial coupe that looks set to illuminate Supercars, for better or for worse.

As well as the detailed technical background to the car, our man Newton gets access to the brains trust behind the project, DJR Team Penske competition director Ludo Lacroix and MD Ryan Story. He also gets to witness some shakedown laps at Queensland Raceway from Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard and gets firsthand access to the data from the team’s testing at Phillip Island. Without issuing too much in the way of spoilers, this thing is seriously rapid.

There’s the full backstory on how the project was skilfully shepherded through a labyrinth of bureaucracy on both sides of the Pacific, why the car looks the way it does, who’s responsible for those unusual proportions and a discussion on the aero gains the team have established in a  notoriously buttoned-down formula.

In addition to that, there’s page after page of beautiful photography as Ellen Dewar pokes her Canon 35mm right into the Mustang’s mechanicals, creating wall art for Supercars superfans. You’ll need to wait until February 28th before you can get your hands on the March edition of Wheels, but until then, click on the gallery up top for a sneak peek at some of the highlights from the shoot.
