Ford Performance kicked off the 2017 race season with great success at the World Center of Speed, Daytona International Speedway this past weekend. The new Mustang and Ford GT supercar qualified on pole (Mustang in the IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge and Ford GT in the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.
Stock sucks, but we can fix that.
Not many people know this, but my favorite Ford color is Oxford White (or as I like to call it “Work Truck White”). If I were going to buy a new Mustang, or Raptor, or Focus RS (ad nauseam) it would certainly be white. Judging by his 2016 Oxford White Mustang GT, it would appear that SVTPerformance.com Member WomenBeShoppin (Ryan) may have the same sentiment.

Ford’s S550 2015 was a hit right out of the gate, but Mustang owners are always asking “what’s coming next?” Well, today is the day as Ford introduces the latest Mustang, which the Detroit automaker calls, the world’s best-selling sports coupe and the company’s most advanced Mustang ever. It seems to be inspired by the GT350, with a lower and sleeker nose, more naturally aspirated power with quad-exhaust, and Shelby suspension technology.
New Mustang certainly makes a splash.
Just a few hours ago SVTP Member StacyStangz posted up a leaked video and a couple screen captures of the newly redesigned 2018 Ford Mustang. Interestingly, the reaction from the Mustang community has been largely negative. I suspect it will look much better in person, but this is definitely not the response Ford wanted for the new version of their Pony car. Not to mention the fact that since this video was leaked it is not supported with any accompanying information.
Adding old-school style to your 6R80 shifter.
The shift lever on an automatic Stang is an often forgotten piece of interior equipment. I can count on one hand how many non-racecars a year I see with an aftermarket shift on an auto trans. Hurst looked at that dearth in the market and saw an opportunity. They have developed a dress-up replacement for the stock auto shift lever for the 2015-2017 6R60 equipped Mustangs in the form of their classically styled pistol grip handler.
