After being teased early last month, Ford's 2019 Supercars racer has made its first track appearance, albeit wearing camouflage.

As announced by Supercars today, the Mustang has turned its maiden test laps at Queensland Raceway in the hands of DJRTP drivers, Scott McLaughlin and Fabian Coulthard. 

This appearance represents one of three days permitted by Supercars for homologation testing, with a second scheduled for later this week at Phillip Island. 

The prototype is built on DJRTP’s existing spare Falcon chassis, which was last raced by Coulthard in 2016.

For the 2019 season, McLaughlin will receive a brand-new Mustang chassis and body, while his teammate will have his current Falcon chassis rebodied.

We’re still undecided about the looks and proportions of the new car, but it’s obvious significant chopping and changing was required to fit the two-door coupe body over the Supercars control platform.

Next year, six Mustangs are set to race against the Holden Commodore and Nissan Altima, with the season kicking off with the Adelaide 500, from February 28 - March 3.
