 CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Ford on Tuesday became first manufacturer in NASCAR to unveil its 2013 car.
The 2013 Ford Fusion mirrors its production car. It is the third time Ford simultaneously launched production and NASCAR versions of a new model.
The first dual launch came in 1968 with the Torino. The second was in 2006 with the newly introduced Fusion.
The 2013 Fusion has a redesigned silhouette and an identifiable front end grill. The overall proportion of the race car now reflects proportions of the showroom Fusion, and the race car has brand and design cues in the side of the vehicle.
Chevrolet, Dodge and Toyota have not said when they will unveil their 2013 cars.
NASCAR allowed the four automakers to remodel their race cars to make them more brand identifiable.
