Tickford marks Bathurst week with new Mustang upgrade package

Billed as its first modular performance pack for the Mustang, the TA-500 features a number of performance upgrades for and cosmetic enhancements both inside and out.

The base specifications for the Mustang GT (FN model only) include Tickford-engineered Cat-back exhaust, a new suspension tune, and Tickford springs which drop the car 25mm lower.

Standard aesthetic tweaks include the Tickford C stripe decal pack with TA-500 badges, race-inspired rear spoiler, and TA-500 engine cover.

The hotted up Mustang rides on Michelin Pilot 4S tyres, measuring 275/35 R20 on the front and 295/35 R20 on the rear.
