Limited Edition 55th Anniversary Heritage GT350/R Mustang Coming Soon

A year before Ken Miles set lap records at Le Mans in Ford’s famed GT40, the noted race car driver and engineer made waves on the track in the first 1965 Mustang Shelby GT350 fastback coupe. Ford is celebrating this legacy 55 years later with a new limited-edition 2020 Mustang Shelby GT350 Heritage Edition Package.

Miles made Shelby GT350 an instant legend when he drove it to victory at Green Valley Raceway in Texas on Feb. 14, 1965. Since then, the Shelby GT350 has been a Mustang icon. Click Here to Continue Reading...
More Photos From PRI 2019 Than You Probably Want to See

If you've been on SVTP very long at all you know we love the annual Performance Racing Industry Show, but hate going to Indy in the winter. This year was no different. The show was awesome as always, and I still hate the cold. Some highlights of the show are always seeing industry friends and checking out some new go-fast parts. It was great catching up with the guys from HP Tuners and @Livernois Motorsports.

For 2019, there were some truly special parts on display for the Modern Ford Enthusiat. First up, Ford Performance introduced their new 'Werewolf' Iron Engine Block for the Coyote V8 platform. This is aimed directly at the Sportsman racer who wants a block that can stand up to serious abuse, and doesn't mind the weight penalty that comes along with switching from Aluminum to Iron.

Supply is Running Out | Go Buy a New Fiesta ST Now!!!

I’m going to let you guys in on a little secret. The Ford Fiesta ST is dollar for dollar one of the most fun new cars you can buy today. However, that isn’t going to be true for much longer. The sad fact is that in a few short weeks the supply for brand new Fiesta STs on dealer lots in the US will be gone. According to SVTP Member @13COBRA, as of 11/12/19 there are only 195 new ones out there. In Ford’s infinite wisdom they have made the decision that the Stateside crowd will not be getting the updated 2020 Fiesta ST model with its heavily revamped interior. So if you want a new one, time is running out and here is why you should care.

“Life is too short to drive a car that sucks.” That simple maxim is just a fact. So why would you waste your time in something mundane when you could be driving a Ford Fiesta ST? The FiST, as owners have taken to calling it, is simply put has the best dollar-to-fun ratio on the market today. Don’t believe me? Just ask anyone who owns one, or take a look at this thread: Click Here to Continue Reading...
Ford Drops the Prototype Bronco R Baja Race Truck

It was built for this, its engine roaring through the heat of the Mojave and its racing tires spraying desert sand. As the last grain settled, the vehicle that is all at once a tribute and a test and a tease, came in to focus. It was no mirage. Bronco – in the form of a race-inspired Bronco R prototype – is back.

As a tribute, it was appropriately parked alongside the Bronco that Rod Hall and Larry Minor famously drove to an overall win 50 years ago at the 1969 Baja 1000 – a victory that no other 4x4 has replicated. Featuring a race livery inspired by Hall’s winning vehicle, Bronco R passes the torch to off-road racer Shelby Hall, Rod’s granddaughter, who will drive it for portions of this year’s prestigious race in honor of her late grandfather.
