There are plenty of ugly Mustangs out there–but they don’t always come with such hilarious press material. Germans are known for being detail-oriented perfectionists, so it’s no clue how some of these gems slipped by the PR department. I particularly enjoyed this bold statement:“But let’s move on to the main accomplishment of the Design-World in Sundern: for example, the fact that this company can make your car look different, so no one will confuse it with other models.”
Of course, this could be accomplished with a can of Krylon and a tire iron, but seriously, “Who can imagine this free animal in a fast gallop? Without the use of fantasy.” The gallop won’t be too fast however, because there are only 23 extra ponies present, and the top speed has been limited. As the press release sagely informs us, “This condition is mandatory for such a wild horse.” Bravo to our buddies over at Autoblog for posting this–there are enough jokes here to go around. Click on the photos to expand, and the full press release follows below.
What do you think about Design-World Marko Mennekes’ handiwork? Do you love it, or should everyone involved have their beer and schnitzel rations cut? Head over to the Forum and sound off!
In a fast gallop – Ford Mustang from Design-World Marko Mennekes
Ford Mustang appeared in 1964 and became the ancestor of the Pony-Car-Class (Pony-Car-Klasse). Until now, the varieties of such bodies as Coupe, Fastback and Cabriolet is still a sensation due to their appearance.
Design-World Company in Sundern which is, incidentally, for more than six years is responsible for modeling station of CarFilmComponents (CFC-Styling Station), gave the originally equipped, a free-living prairie no weak engine with 412 hp an additional power impetus. Now the engine has 435 hp with 5-liter capacity. V8 with 6 speed manual transmission of 2011 model year is fully equipped, including Shaker 1000 CD/MP3 sound system. The above mentioned increase in the capacity is achieved by open air filter with air box (Airbox), as well as software optimization.
At the same time, the car speed has been limited, but not as in previous versions. This condition is mandatory for such a wild horse.
The alloy wheels of 8.5×20 inches with 255/35ZR20 tires on the front axle, and of 10×20 inches with 285/30ZR20 tires on the back axle are actively supported by the thread undercarriage from H&R.
But let’s move on to the main accomplishment of the Design-World in Sundern: for example, the fact that this company can make your car look different, so no one will confuse it with other models. For the beginning – the varnishing, including grinding of the plastic parts that were not varnished, such as channel bar, diffuser, radiator and bumper. The black painting of the Mustang GT remained unchanged. The foil finish with contrasting color nuances in metallic black, metallic orange, white, and the carbon foil (CFC-Black-metallic, CFC-Orange-metallic, CFC-White, as well as CFC-Carbon-Strukturfolie-Black). Who can imagine this free animal in a fast gallop? Without the use of fantasy.
The total cost of the reconstruction of the “CFC-Sundern Mustang Project” is 12.150,00 euro.
