The US-spec Ford Mustang GT just got pointier and grippier

Interestingly enough, the company made quite large changes to the exterior design, with the Mustang GT on Performance Pack Level 2 coming with a high-performance front splitter - which should deliver 24 pounds (10 kilograms) of downforce at 80 miles per hour (128 kilometers per hour) - a new rear spoiler, reworked steering and a modified MagneRide suspension.

A trained eye is necessary to glean the visual differences between the Level 2 and Level 1 Performance Packs - most obvious are the 19-inch, ten-spoke Dark Tarnish wheels and bespoke detailing on the aero devices, both exclusive to the Level 2.

The new "Level 2" pack will be available this month in the United States, building on Level 1 features such as Brembo six-piston brakes, retuned stability, braking and steering systems, a bigger radiator and a Torsen rear diff with 3.73 axle ratio by adding stiffer springs and stabiliser bars, a lower ride height, new front and rear spoiler and unique 19-inch alloys with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.

The 2018 Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack Level 2 will add $6,500 (not including the Recaro seats), but for that price, this 460 horsepower pony should be the best road racing package short of the current Shelby GT350.

That may be about to change with the Level 2 Performance Package, however, which includes a plethora of performance upgrades that make the Mustang GT more track-focused.

The facelifted Mustang is yet to arrive in the United Kingdom, but should the new performance pack become available, it'll likely be exclusive to the 5-litre GT specification mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as opposed to the ten-speed automatic. Inside, you're limited to the manual transmission only - no automatic for this road racer - and the V-8 engine is a required option, so you're starting with a GT trim level, as well.

Visually the Performance Pack Level 2 is differentiated with a new front splitter that's similar to that of the former 302 Boss model.

Ford has revealed another optional upgrade package for the Mustang, but for now it's only available in the States. "The auto has lightning-quick response and never gives up grip, ' said Cullen". Until now Ford lacked an adequate performance upgrade to beat the 1LE package offered on the Chevrolet Camaro.
