First On Race Day: Ford’s Latest Go-Fast Livery

Ford Racing is revving things up by introducing a brand-new livery. The color scheme will be a prominent addition to all cars supported by the company and powered by its engines.

The decision is part of a move to unify all of Ford’s global racing efforts. A prominent blue and black identifier stripe will debut at next year’s Daytona 500 on the 2013 Fusion running in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. It will also be found on NHRA drag racers, WRC Fiestas and everything in between.

Beyond the signature stripe, cars will also feature a similar motif and color scheme on their flanks.

Ford Racing prototypes are not excluded from the company’s latest livery. The Mustang Cobra Jet Twin-Turbo shown at the 2012 SEMA Show show is finished in white with an offset black and blue stripe running from bumper to bumper.

The idea of this unified look it to make it easy for fans to identify cars that are directly supported by Ford Racing.
