Outfitting this special edition FR500S was a joint effort among SPX, Ford Racing, Miller Motorsports Park, the Ford Racing High Performance Driving School, Stand 21, SPEEDCOM Communications, Capaldi Racing and Cragar Wheels. This special Mustang is outfitted with Ford Racing Performance Parts such as high-flow cylinder heads, full race camshafts, intake manifold, competition throttle body, a race-capacity oil pan and high torque one-piece aluminum driveshaft. SPX and Ford Racing enlisted Capaldi Racing group to modify a new FR500S specifically for competing in the World Challenge SCCA Race Series.
This Mustang FR500S features a carbon fiber louvered hood, trunk, and rear spoiler for less weight and better aerodynamics, as well as Pirelli racing tires. The vehicle also includes Brembo Racing Pro Series four-piston brake calipers, 14" slotted discs with Hawk racing brake pads.
"A lot of hard work went into creating a truly unique car that will hopefully generate a great deal of interest and excitement among bidders, and raise as much money as possible for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital when it crosses the Barrett-Jackson auction block," Kearney added.
