iRacing has announced a new agreement with Ford that will enrich the online racing simulation’s lineup of cars with several new cars. The first two cars to be announced are the Ford Mustang FR500s as well as the Ford GT-R.
Powered by a 4.6l V8-engine putting out 325hp, the Ford Mustang FR500S is an assembly-line produced racing vehicle that is eligible in various series aimed at privateer drivers, including the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge for the Miller Cup which is sanctioned by the Grand American Road Racing Association.
Built by Doran Racing, the Ford GT-R is a little more professional race car, running in the American Le Mans Series GT2 class where it faces notable competition from Ferrari, BMW, Porsche and Panoz.
With the Riley Daytona Prototype already being available and the Corvette C6.R in the making, these new Ford race cars answer the call of many iRacing followers and critics for more road racing content.
