SEMA 2009 Preview: Hurst announces the Performance Series Hurst Mustang
Hurst Performance Vehicles has devoted a ton of time to the new Chevrolet Camaro, and last year they got lots of press coverage for their awesome Hurst Hemi Challengers. Hurst has a long history of dealing with GMs and Mopars, but they are newer to the Ford world. Last month, Hurst announced the Hurst Mustang Pace Car Series convertible and yesterday evening I received an email from Hurst's publc relations group with news of a new Hurst Mustang to be unveiled at the 2009 SEMA Show. While details are limited (and no pictures exist right now) the new Performance Series Hurst Mustang sounds like it takes many of its performance cues from the Pace Car Series Mustang, but puts all of those performance upgrades in the skin of a race car rather than a pace car.
The new Performance Series Hurst Mustang being displayed at SEMA is painted bright white with black and gold Hurst graphics, sitting on 20" black chrome forged wheels wearing BF Goodrich KDW high performance tires. Inside, the Hurst Mustang wears graphite Hurst/Katzkin leather seats with gold stitching and embroidered Hurst logos on the seats and floormats. Like the other new Hurst models being displayed at the 2009 SEMA Show, the Hurst Mustangs will feature the Hurst Hard-Shift handle.
Aesthetics aside, the Performance Series Hurst Mustang is set up to run
as good as it looks. The 4.6L 3V engine is boosted by a Roush
Supercharger and the exhaust is provided by Magnaflow. Helping the
Performance Series Hurst Mustang handle the curves is an Eibach
coil-over setup and Hurst/Wilwood brakes.
There hasn't been much revealed about the 2010 Hurst Mustangs, but with SEMA only a week away, you can depend on the Detroit Autos Examiner to bring you all available specs and high resolution pictures of all of the new Hurst vehicles debuting at the 2009 SEMA Show!
