In mid 2022, Walkinshaw Andretti United shocked the Australian motorsport industry when they announced that they would be racing the Ford Mustang GT in the 2023 Supercars Championship with the introduction of the new Gen3 platform.
A team with a long, proud and successful history racing Holden’s since the 1990s, including a long stint as the factory backed Holden Racing Team, many fans expected WAU to carry on racing a General Motors product - the Chevrolet Camaro - under the new rules in the next season.
But with Holden sadly no longer existing, it was the perfect time to make the switch to the Blue oval. While initially, many red-blooded Holden fans were incensed at the decision, ultimately the feeling was the majority accepted the reality that it was time for a change, especially with Ford bringing manufacturer support to the team.
And of course, Ford’s army of fans were ecstatic to see a team as prestigious as WAU join their ranks. It was an exciting prospect - a new powerhouse Ford team, led by star driver Chaz Mostert (who enjoyed success racing Ford Falcons and Mustangs earlier in his career) would be competing in the Supercars Championship in 2023.
Authentic Collectables are excited to present the Walkinshaw Andretti United Ford Mustang GT S550 Prototype Gen3 Supercar featuring the Ford Performance Switch Livery unveiled to fans as part of the news of the team’s change to Ford in 2022.
Dressed in incredible Walkinshaw Andretti United war paint, this Mustang represents the first step in a new partnership with Ford for the team.
