Competition Vehicles > FR500 Series

Ford Performance FR500 series. The ultimate race-ready Mustangs.

The beginning of the dynasty started with the Mustang FR500C, a car designed to compete in the professional GRAND-AM Cup series (now the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge). The FR500C had a remarkable first season, winning the "triple crown"-the drivers', manufacturers' and team championships! The formula was so good that the car was taken to Europe where it stormed to the 2007 FIA GT4 championship. Since then, it has carried on by winning races and multiple championships in 2008 and 2009.
