2004 New York Auto Show: Ford Mustang GT-R Concept

The new Mustang is still months away from dealerships, but Ford needed something to celebrate the car’s fortieth anniversary, not to mention four decades of Mustang racing. Hence the GT-R concept, which has a 440-hp, 5.0-liter “Cammer” crate engine from Ford Racing Performance Parts under its black carbon fiber hood and a Valencia orange paint job inspired by the orange 1970 Mustang Boss 302 Trans-Am race cars, affectionately known as the Yellow Mustangs. The GT-R uses 85 percent of the 2005 Mustang‘s body shell and, Ford says, points the way toward an actual future model that could be sold to grassroots racing teams.
