The Ford Mustang, fresh off its seventh generation unveiling, will soon return to Le Mans.

“Mustang is raced at all the great tracks around the world, but there is no race or track that means more to our history than Le Mans,” said Bill Ford, executive chair, at The Stampede, the debut of the all-new seventh-generation Ford Mustang.

“It’s where we took on Ferrari and won in the 1960s and where we returned 50 years later and shocked the world again. Mustang will go back to Le Mans. Once again, we will Go Like Hell,” Ford said.
