Bonkers retro-styled Mustang ready for SEMA
With the 2019 SEMA tuner show under a month away, car builders are beginning to show off what they’ve been working on. Like this, an epic Mustang wearing GT40-inspired livery and packing 700 supercharged horses.
The 5.0-litre Coyote V8 has been slapped with a Roush supercharger, pushing output up to 514kW (700hp) and 827Nm. The engine spits its exhaust fumes into a MagnaFlow cat-back exhaust system while Wilwood performance brakes keep everything in check. Ford’s six-speed manual is still there, routing power rearward.
Inside is an NRG sports seat, a NASCAR-style steering wheel and a six-point harness, as well as the regular Ford infotainment system.
As for the exterior, the red, black and white livery was inspired by the GT40 racers that competed at the 1966 Daytona 24 Hour race. There are interesting 20-inch Fifteen52 Podium Super Touring wheels, the front pair sporting custom turbo fans, with ST Suspension XTA coilovers at all four corners. A Roush Performance front lip, quarter window covers, an Anderson Composites carbon fibre trunk, deck lid and Type AT spoiler round off the changes.
The special ‘Stang will debut at the 1000Bulbs.com 500 race at Talladega this weekend before hitting SEMA in early November.
