Farley Takes Australian Ford Mustang GT3 To The Track: Video

It’s a well-known fact that Ford CEO Jim Farley has long been not only an automotive executive, but also an avid enthusiast and part-time racer. Aside from campaigning in – and winning – various vintage racing events, Farley has also spent some time behind the wheel of everything from the Ford Puma Rally1 to the Ford Pro Electric Supervan in recent years. Now, Farley can add the Ford Mustang GT3 to that list, as the exec was able to get some track time in the brand new Supercars racer when he visited Australia.

The all-new Ford Mustang GT3 was just revealed back in June, and is one component of larger global motorsports push following the launch of the next-generation S650 2024 Mustang. The new GT3 is destined to compete at various events all over the world – including next year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans – as well as other stops on the FIA GT3 circuit. Ford teamed up with longtime partners Multimatic and M-Sport to create the new Mustang GT3, which is powered by a fortified and enlarged version of the naturally-aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote, in this guise displacing 5.4 liters. It sends power to a rear-mounted transaxle gearbox, while a bespoke short-long arm suspension resides beneath carbon fiber bodywork and a unique aero package.

The Blue Oval just revealed its factory-backed Ford Mustang GT3 driver lineup for the coming season, which will aim to leave a mark on that series over the coming months. However, even though this effort has yet to begin, the Mustang GT3 has thus far proven popular enough to garner higher-than-expected demand, as Ford Authority previously reported.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
