The automaker says the Interceptor celebrates the modern American muscle car with the sporty elegance of 1960s sedans and “Built Ford Tough” attitude.
Based on the Ford Mustang, the Interceptor features traditional rear-wheel-drive proportions. Its Ford Racing 5.0-liter Cammer engine runs on E-85 ethanol and produces 400 horsepower. This engine powered the Mustang FR500C to the 2005 Grand-Am Cup Championship in its first year of competition. The performance engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission.
The Interceptor incorporates Ford’s patented four-point “belt and suspenders” design in the front and rear seats. In addition, inflatable safety belts are included for rear seat passengers.
Ford said the customer target for the masculine sedan is a man with a family who loves power and performance but is responsible to the environment and the safety of his family.
