New age Moffat Mustang
Fancy your very own brand new Allan Moffat Mustang? It’s a tantalising proposition, and something which will be available in the second half of 2016 as Mustang Motorsport prepares to release the Allan Moffat Edition Mustang.
The artist’s impression shown here offers a taste of what to expect, but Mustang Motorsport boss Craig Dean says the Allan Moffat Edition Mustang has been created not only to reflect the appearance of Moffat’s legendary Boss 302 Trans Am Mustang, but also its performance.
To that end, among the various performance upgrades that will be available is a 560kW supercharged option.
AMC understands that Mustang Motorsport’s special edition Moffat Mustang has been some six years in the making.
“I was doing it in 2010 with Allan,” Craig Dean explains. “But then Ford called him in to become an ambassador for them. So it became a bit complicated. That was fine; we just put it on hold, and four or five months ago I revisited the idea.”
Like the original hand-built Kar Kraft Trans-Am, the Allan Moffat Edition Mustang has been designed for go as much as show. Mustang Motorsport has called on its 20 years’ experience running Mustangs in tarmac rally competition to develop a range of option packages to suit different requirements.
“The goal with this car is to be a good, fair dinkum track car,” Dean says.
The Allan Moffat Edition Mustang is set for a mid-September release.
