2007 Ford Mustang FR500GT Concept

Encouraged by the first-year dominance of its 420-horsepower stock Mustang race car in the Grand-Am Koni Challenge Series Ford Motor Company has developed what it describes as the ultimate Mustang showroom stock race car. Code-named ‘Man Racer,’ the new 550-horsepower Mustang follows on the heels of the highly successful FR500C, also known as the ‘Boy Racer.’

‘Man Racer represents the reincarnation of the Trans-Am Mustang from the 70s, which was the most powerful showroom-looking pony car at the time,’ said Dan Davis, director, Ford Racing Technology. ‘This car has amazing output from a normally aspirated engine, and the chassis is specially tuned for high-speed performance and handling.’

This concept racer is outfitted with Ford Racing Performance Parts and was featured in the October issue of Car and Driver magazine.
