As it readies for a tilt at a third victory in the Great Race, Tickford has chosen Bathurst week to launch the new Mustang TA-500 Performance Pack.
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.
A range of options are also on offer, such as 750hp Tickford Roush Supercharger, Wilwood race-inspired brake package, and cold air intake.
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.
