Later this week, Ford plans to reveal what will be its first-ever mid-engined Mustang, at least that’s according to a new report out of the United States.
Ford Authority suggests that a handful of individuals have already gotten eyes on the car which is expected to be revealed on August 17 (August 18 in New Zealand) at Monterey Car Week.
It is understood that the car will be built by Multimatic, the same company that manufactured the GT, which considers the mid-engined Mustang to be a new supercar.
We don’t know what platform the new model will be based on, nor what engine lies within. However, it will be underpinned by a different chassis to the one found underneath the seventh-generation Mustang.
The Blue Oval brand has been spotted benchmarking a Chevrolet Corvette (C8), the first mid-engined production Stingray from General Motors, so the new ‘Stang could be a close rival in terms of power and performance.
This wouldn’t technically be the first time Ford has dabbled with the idea of a mid-engined pony, considering it toyed with a four-cylinder model in the early 1960s before releasing the front-engined version we all know and love today.
It won’t be long until we find out more about the mid-engined Mustang as all will supposedly be revealed tomorrow.
