2015 Ford Mustang Is Official Pace Car At Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR
2015 Ford Mustang will be the official pace car for the Quicken Loans 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Michigan International Speedway (MIS), 15th of June. The participation of the car is a fitting tribute to the continuing 50-year celebration of the iconic pony car. The version making a debut as a pace car at MIS will be the 2015 Mustang GT fastback. It will lead the field to the green flag. Joe Hinrichs who is Ford Motor Company president of The Americas will be the person behind the wheel, and he will drive the Race Red fastback around the track in Brooklyn.
The GT version is equipped with 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine. This means that it is perfect for the job it is appointed for. The powertrain generates more than 420 horsepower (310 kW) and more than 529 Nm (390 lb.-ft.) of torque. Two other engines will also be available when the car hits showrooms later this year, namely – the 3.7-liter V6 and 2.3-liter EcoBoost.
The sixth generation Ford Mustang is all-new from the ground up. It is driven from its rear-wheels and has its emblematic long hood and short rear decklid proportions. Key for it is the low and wide stance, its contemporary design characteristics and state-of-the-art engineering and technology.
Among the many new features on the 2015 Mustang GT is an independent rear suspension. It was engineered specifically for the new platform on which the car is built. This means that it is bringing about some introductions to the model such as the featured new front suspension.
