The Blue Oval’s Racing division has revealed the first images with the 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR Sprint Cup racer. The car mirrors the production version 2013 Fusion but only in terms of appearance as under the skin the NASCAR racer will be totally different.
Jamie Allison, director, Ford Racing said that "We wanted Fusion to be the car that helped return ‘stock car’ to NASCAR" "I think fans, when they see the car, are just going to smile and cheer.
It is going to reengage them with the sport and make the sport better
because there is just something natural about seeing race cars that look
like cars in their driveways."
On the 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR Racer designers addressed the overall proportions to reflect the regular Fusion, applied brand and design cues in the side of the car, and also at the front where the most important feature is the grille.
The 2013 Ford Fusion NASCAR will debut at the Daytona 500 in February next year.
