I don't think there's anything to stop a team putting a car into a tunnel before homologation. The rules state you can't use a tunnel, but no reference as to what point in the life-cycle of the car.

The Mustang would have had a tonne of CFD done on it, and then verified on track. But we have no idea what Ford Performance in the US did behind closed doors to verify CFD data.

However, with Supercars having clarified from 2016 that chassis must be built in Australia, the car had sat idle at Penske until Rushbrook’s request for a Mustang display car.
Also seeing Ford Head Office acknowledge their Australian racing efforts is long overdue.

Clearly it's spent 3 solid years on a shaker rig and the last 12 months in a wind tunnel.....

It seems like there's now people at Ford that actually give a damn. We should make the most of it while it lasts.

All manufacturers go through the ebb and flow of varying levels of interest in motorsport. All largely depends on who's steering the ship at the time. Some CEOs and managerial types see motorsport as a large waste of time and money, because it doesn't always directly translate to profit on paper. The smart ones are able to tie it into all facets of the business, and leverage like crazy. They employ Simon McNamara-type people to build passion for the brand through motorsport, and to facilitate with marrying up drivers, sponsors and teams.
