Limited Edition Mustang FR500S Race/Track Car

Ford Racing is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of the factory-built Mustang FR500S, a car designed, engineered, and built for America's road courses and open track days. A total of 77 race cars were built and last year, Ford dealers sold 40 cars in 2008. These race cars are built to race in the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge, an all-new professional road race series featuring this car. Only 37 cars remain available for purchase, making a very limited edition that much more attractive as both a track car and as a collectible piece of Mustang history. Ford Dealers who are interested in purchasing one of the remaining Mustang FR500S (M-FR500-S) are encouraged to enter their orders promptly. Cars ordered will be billed to the dealer's P&A Statement. Pricing for Part Number M-FR500-S has been reduced and is currently at $##,### Dealer Cost and $ 69,995 MSRP. Take advantage of this great opportunity on the remaining units. There are no plans to build additional FR500S once these units are sold out.

Important, Please Note: The Mustang FR500S is non-VIN non-Street Legal race car sold only through Ford Dealers thru the Ford Racing Catalog for the purposes of participation in open track days and/or the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge series ( For more information on this exciting car, please visit
