The Mustang Source
Ford is revving up for what will likely be one of its biggest buzz years yet at SEMA, teasing two more custom Mustangs that will be featured at the Las Vegas show.
One of the show cars includes the menacing Hollywood Hot Rods Mustang GT Convertible, which features a removable aluminum roof, custom side scoops, bespoke wheels and aluminum skirts, front splitter and rear diffuser.
The custom pony car is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine with a Ford Racing Whipple supercharger on top and Banks Straight-Shot Water-Methanol injection system that cranks out 750 horsepower.
Another variation that will be showcased at SEMA, called Mustang Flame, features BASF R-M Onyx Race Red exterior paint, the Mustang Flame with a 3dCarbon body kit, GT500-style grille, Niche Plus wheels and set of Nitto NT05 Max performance tires.
No official word yet on the numbers, but the model, which was co-developed by Ford and Nitto, is said to be equipped with a Coyote unit upgraded by Ford Racing.
The two cars will join a number of other custom Mustangs being displayed at the 2013 SEMA show, which opens Nov. 5, as momentum continues to build for the reveal of the 2015 Ford pony car.
Although the 2015 Mustang won't officially launch until next year, the new model is already all the buzz going into next month's SEMA show as Ford begins holding special viewings of the car, which celebrates its 50th anniversary next year.
