"There's been a lot of speculation and calls for Mustang to be on the track, and as a Ford Performance model that's raced around the world, it's fitting that Australia's most popular sports vehicle should be on our race tracks".

The addition of the Mustang to the Cup Series will make the model the fourth Ford to race the ovals since 1972 after the Thunderbird, Taurus, and Fusion. "We know enthusiasts of the Mustang, Australia's most popular sports auto, will be as excited as we are about seeing Mustang on track".

They are working closely with Ford Performance to develop the Supercars-spec Mustang, which will run a 5.0-liter V-8 borrowed from the Falcon-based cars.

Ford's already working with two teams to homologate the vehicle. Kevin Harvick won three straight races in it in the season's opening weeks, and four of the top five drivers in the standings - Joey Logano, Harvick, Clint Bowyer, Keselowski - are Ford drivers (the lone exception being Kyle Busch atop the list).

The Broadmeadows brand, which has for several years blocked the iconic model's use, announced Tuesday that the legendary "pony car" will replace the Falcon FG X as its race weapon of choice.

"We're in partnership", said Mr Whickman, who declined to specify how long the deal would extend for.

The Mustang - which will be the first ever two-door racer in the Supercars era - will also need to comply with Supercars' parity formula that's created to level the playing field between it, the Holden Commodore ZB and Nissan's Altima. A year ago, Ford sold 125,809 Mustang cars and convertibles. "Mustang is a flawless fit for our racing heritage today and tomorrow". "Next year is about the Mustang", said Tickford Racing team principal Tim Edwards. It can run on just two cylinders while coasting or cruising to save fuel.

At this stage, expect to see up to six Mustangs on the grid for the Adelaide 500 next March.

Racing legend and co-owner of DJR Team Penske, Dick Johnson, joked that he "wouldn't be caught" in any other auto, after speculation Ford would sign on.

"We did look at other vehicles when we first thought about this, well before we even engaged with the teams or the series, but the Mustang is the right fit and its credentials in terms of the V8 are very, very strong".
