Since April this year, Ford Trade Club Members have had the opportunity to win a 2019 Ford Mustang GT. The new, sleeker design, more advanced technology and greater performance ensures the 2019 Mustang makes a powerful impression. There’s a wider, more aggressive mesh grille, re-profiled bumper, new air extractor bonnet vents and new LED headlights with signature tri-bar lighting.
The Mustang’s 5.0L V8 engine has been expertly engineered to maximise power from every compression by utilising a dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port injection system. Boasting 339kW of power and 556Nm of torque, the Mustang GT’s engine roar and wide-eyed performance are the stuff of legends.
As we have reported as the competition drew to a close, this no ordinary Ford Mustang, as the striking “Need for Green” beast (with black racing stripes, of course) is fully factory optioned. The RECARO sports seats provide the perfect balance of support and comfort, the MagneRide suspension damping system responds at an amazing 1,000 times per second to smooth out the roughest of roads, the 19″ forged aluminium wheels not only provide a sporty look, but are stronger and lighter to improve handling and a rear spoiler just gives it that special finish.
And the winner is: Jason Treleggan from Southern Collision Repairs in Seaford, South Australia. “When the team from Ford visited the site, my first thought was that it seemed like a rather large group for a visit to a relatively small business. When they told me I had won the Mustang, I just couldn’t believe it. For a small repairer in South Australia winning a national competition, it’s just awesome,” said Treleggan.
