Mexican firm Rassini, which produces brake and suspension components for automakers, has been awarded a contract to make brake rotors for the current, sixth-generation Ford Mustang, according to website Aftermarket News. The rotors will be made at Rassini’s facility in Mt. Morris Township, Michigan, just outside of Flint.
“It’s an honor and a privilege to partner with our longtime customers at Ford on one of the most iconic and American-made vehicles in the history of our industry,” Rassini CEO Eugenio Madero said of the new Mustang contract. “The continued growth and success of our Mt. Morris Township facility is a result of the hard work and dedication by our employees in Michigan, and we look forward to continuing to work with Ford to meet and deliver upon their needs.”
Aftermarket News reports that Rassini’s rotors for the Ford Mustang will be 380 mm (about 15 inches) in diameter, and high in carbon content. It’s possible that these new rotors will be available with the 2018 Mustang’s new “Performance Pack 2” option uncovered last month.
