SEMA 2013: Vortech’s Project Yellow Jacket Ford Mustang Looks Seriously Hot In Yellow

For one reason of another, Ford doesn’t offer a yellow hue on the 2014 Ford Mustang. And that’s truly a shame, because the pony car would look so hot in a shade of bright yellow. To illustrate just that, the fine lads and lasses at Vortech Superchargers are working on a unique yellow Mustang, called Project Yellow Jacket, to display at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

“As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang,” said Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group. “We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance.”

Vortech’s custom Mustang sports the following features:

  • Boy Racer kit from 3D Carbon
  • Carbon-fiber cowl induction hood and other carbon accents from TruFiber finished in a custom paint supplied by DuPont
  • Webasto custom electronic sunroof
  • iForged Icon three-piece wheels – 20- x 9-inch front, 20- x 11-inch rear (black chrome centers with flat black lips) wrapped in Falken Azenis FK453 tires (275/40/20 front, 315/35/20 rear)
  • Custom powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension package and Baer 6S six-piston brakes at all four corners

The pony car will cradle Ford’s potent 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine paired with a Vortech V-3 Si supercharging system packing 605 horsepower and 473 lb.-ft. with 7.5 psi of boost. And while the image you see above is just a rendering, we can already tell that the real-world car will be a show-stopper.

Now if only Ford offered yellow on the production version of its sports car… here’s to hoping that will be the case for the 2015 Mustang.
