2023 Ford Bronco DR with mystichrome paint surfaces for sale

A 2023 Ford Bronco DR with throwback paint has surfaced for sale on Bring a Trailer.

Announced in 2021, the Bronco DR (short for Desert Racer) is a turnkey race truck intended as a spiritual successor to Broncos that competed in the Baja 1000 in the 1960s and 1970s. Just 50 are thought to have been built, all as 2023 models with a mid-$200,000 price tag.

The truck up for sale stands out even more thanks to body panels finished in Mystichrome, the color-shifting paint only offered from the factory on the 2004 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra.

The rest of the truck appears to be factory-spec, meaning it sports a Coyote 5.0-liter V-8 delivering an estimated 400 hp. The V-8 drives all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission and independent electronically locking front and rear differentials, pushing 6,200 pounds of vehicle in race trim.

Ford also gave the Bronco DR unique bodywork to cover widened 73.7-inch front and 73.3-inch rear tracks, along with a roll cage and serious chassis upgrades. Highlights include Positional Selective DSSV Dampers from Multimatic and 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM3 tires with 17-inch beadlock wheels.

When it announced the Bronco DR, Ford claimed the race truck boasted 55.1% more front suspension travel, at 15.8 inches, and 58.6% more rear suspension travel, at 17.4 inches, compared to a stock four-door Bronco Badlands. Ford also quoted approach, departure, and breakover angles of 47, 37, and 33 degrees, respectively.

The interior includes only the basics. Two seats are squeezed between the roll cage, with a Motec C187 display and CAN data acquisition system in the center of the dashboard. A 65-gallon fuel tank and spare tire are housed behind the driver and passenger.

Because this is a race vehicle not intended for road use, the Bronco DR is offered only with a bill of sale and does not have a title or registration. For those that want a road-legal Bronco with some desert-racer character, there’s always the Bronco Raptor.
