Ford (factory) returns to Supercars with Mustang

https://www.motorsport.com/v8superca...rcars-1027167/

Ford Australia will revive its factory involvement in Supercars next season through a remarkable new programme that includes bringing the Mustang bodyshape to the series.
The brand completed its withdrawal as an official Supercars manufacturer at the end of the 2015 season, its involvement since then based on licensing agreements with Tickford Racing and DJR Team Penske rather than genuine funding.

But that's set to change next season, with Ford Australia tying the introduction of the Ford Performance brand to its local arm with a renewed investment in Supercars.

Making Ford's return to the series even more sensational is confirmation that the two-door Mustang will debut next season.

The current Ford teams have been evaluating the Mustang as a replacement to the FG-X since 2016, this new Ford deal clearing the funding and IP permissions hurdles to allow the muscle car plan to go ahead.

It will be the first two-door model to make use of the Gen2 regulations and be powered by the five-litre V8 engine.
Don't think they are going to use a Coyote based 5.0.
