Lot #508.1 - #32 of 75. This vehicle saw track time in 2008 promoting the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup. Features a 325hp 4.6 Liter 3V V8 with the Ford Racing power package, a 6-speed manual with upgraded clutch and 4-piston Brembo brakes. Driven first at the Road Atlanta debut of this year's inaugural season by 1989 Mustang Trans-Am Champion, Dorsey Schroeder, this car served as an evaluation vehicle. "This car is balanced, forgiving, and predictable, and the brakes are great. Everything you could ever want in a race car," said Dorsey Schroeder. Dorsey will be on hand to auction off this unique vehicle. This car also served as a hot lap car for journalists including editors from "Car Craft", "Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords", "5.0 Mustang and Super Fords", and "Modified Mustangs and Fords". This "media car" was also raced successfully by guest drivers including JG Pasterjack from "Grassroots Motorsports", Brian Smith from SPEEDtv.com and Team Falken Ford Racing Mustang world champion drifter, Vaughn Gittin Jr. This car was also featured on the cover of the August 2008 issue of "Grassroots Motorsports" magazine in which the Mustang Challenge series was covered extensively. Offered by Ford Racing, the exclusivity, notoriety, and track pedigree of this special car make it perfect as a collector car, a Mustang Challenge race car, or a track car. Like all FR500S race cars, this "media car" features the following: a sealed 325 hp 4.6L 3V V8 engine with Ford Racing Power upgrade package, 6-speed manual transmission with upgraded clutch, stainless steel long tube headers with X-pipe, high-capacity radiator, torsen differential, adjustable dampers, FR500C 4-piston Brembo brakes, racing steering wheel with quick-release hub, complete safety equipment including fire suppression system and Grand-Am spec roll cage, AIM data acquisition system with transponder, Lexan backlight and rear quarter windows, front splitter and unique rear wing and BFGoodrich G-Force R1 DOT tires. Sold on a Bill of Sale only.
