One of the 57 Ford vehicles set to make an appearance at SEMA 2013 will be this beast of a Mustang. Created by Hollywood Hot Rods using a 2014 Mustang GT Convertible as the starting point, the goal was to take the classic proportions of the Stang, which already asserts “performance” in stock form, and create a truly unique vehicle that’s much more than simply adding accessories and a custom paint job, while maintaining the classic Mustang DNA.
To accomplish the goal, Hollywood Hot Rods redesigned some of the most noticeable elements of the pony car, including the roof and the entire rear end. The team spent over 150 hours on reshaping the rear, and another 250 hours hand-forming the aluminum lift-off roof. In addition, all body modifications, including the front splitter, side scoops, skirts and diffuser are custom fabricated in aluminum.
Far from being all show with no performance credentials, the show car received a Ford Racing Whipple supercharger and Banks Power water-methanol injection system, boosting the 5.0-liter V8 to an estimated 750 horsepower. Helping keep the car planted is a Cortex Racing X-treme grip track suspension system. Other modifications include:
- Handmade lift-off aluminum hard top
- Completely redesigned tail section
- One-off handmade aluminum body accessories, front grille, air splitter, rear wing
- 5.0-liter V8 with Ford Racing Whipple supercharger
- Banks Power water-methanol injection system
- Cortex Racing, X-treme grip track suspension including rear Watts linkage and torque arm
- JRI coilover dampers at all four corners
- StopTech six-piston brakes
Stay tuned as we get our hands on some more photos of what appears to be a very unique vehicle.
