2010 Hurst / Austin Hatcher Foundation Mustang Pace Car

Hurst Performance, a company with a long standing racing history, announced today that it will build 50 limited production replicas of its 550 HP supercharged 2010 Hurst/Austin Hatcher Foundation Mustang Pace Car.

The stunning Hurst/Austin Hatcher Foundation Mustang Pace Car replicas are distinctive, with painted gold racing stripes and gold official “Pace Car” logos on a traditional black paint scheme. The exterior delivers a solid Hurst identity with subtle detailing features including real metal badges and a Hurst AIR-SPEED rear deck spoiler. Other special Hurst details include a Hurst leather interior with contrast top-stitching, embroidered logos, and Hurst-logoed floor mats.

The engine pounds out 550-horsepower, nearly 200-horsepower more than the FR500S race Mustangs and 542 lb.-ft of torque, courtesy of the Ford Racing polished supercharger, Ford Racing FR500S stainless-steel cat-back exhaust and K&N filter. Helping keep all four wheels on the ground is a special race bred suspension by Ford Racing. Going fast does no good if one can’t stop—an upgraded braking system featuring 14″ rotors and 4-piston calipers, also from Ford Racing, helps bring this special car to a standstill.

The cars come equipped with 20″ BFGoodrich g-Force™ T/A®KDW tires for maximum performance and attitude, 20″ HRE/Hurst polished, forged aluminum wheels and a Hurst Competition/Plus shifter with a gold handle, centerpiece of the interior for both manual and automatic cars.

Each limited edition production car comes with a commemorative edition etched metal dash badge, autographed signatures from the Hurst Team in the trunk and a Certificate of Authenticity confirming its collectability and provenance. Every Hurst buyer is invited to take delivery at the Hurst Performance Center in Irvine, Calif. to meet the Hurst team and tour the facility.

“At Hurst, we try to build vehicles that are fun to collect and even more fun to drive. In this case, we are quite privileged to have the opportunity to build a car that will also embrace our long-standing history in the world of racing,” said Nate Shelton, President and Chairman of Hurst Performance Vehicles.

The original Hurst/Austin Hatcher Foundation Mustang made its debut as the official pace car at the season opening Ford Racing Mustang Challenge race on April 25 at Virginia International Raceway. After its run with the Ford Racing Mustang Challenge, this unique and highly-collectible Pace Car will make special appearances at the Hot Rod Power Tour, at numerous Larry H. Miller dealerships across the country and even at SEMA, before being auctioned for charity in January 2011.

Proceeds of the auction will benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer, to fund the Foundation’s landmark group of educational, emotional and social skills development programs that are essential to helping cancer stricken children and their families succeed within their community.

The Hurst/Austin Hatcher Mustang Pace Car replicas are available immediately for purchase. Please visit Hurst Performance or call (949) 261-5500 to order your car or make inquiries.
