The prototype Ford Mustang Supercar

Images of the Ford Mustang Supercar have emerged from its shakedown outing at Queensland Raceway.

The Blue Oval’s highly anticipated new Supercar has broken cover at the Ipswich circuit where it is undergoing its crucial first test, which is closed to the public and media.

Homologation team DJR Team Penske has been working on constructing the prototype for months as part of a development project that involves Ford Performance in the US and fellow Supercars squad Tickford Racing.

The car has been displayed in a camouflage colour scheme.

Drivers Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard are on hand at the test.

Following the shakedown, the car will be transported to Phillip Island for a test on Saturday, which will also be closed to the public and media. 

Supercars homologation testing is expected to be conducted towards the end of the month and into December.

The car will be matched against a Holden ZB Commodore and Nissan Altima Supercars.

Six Mustangs are expected on the 2019 grid with two fielded by DJR Team Penske, three from Tickford Racing and one from 23Red Racing, which is set to link up with Tickford next year.
