Different versions of the 2015 Ford Mustang modified by various tuning companies will be showcased at the 2014 SEMA Auto Show. Here are some of them.
2015 Ford Mustang by Petty’s Garage
The first model has been modified and tuned up by Petty’s Garage, which is owned by Richard Petty, a NASCAR driver. This new 2015 Ford Mustang comes not only with revised body kit, but with engine upgrades as well. As you can see in the photo posted below, this model is painted in beautiful electric blue color (comprised of crushed and tumbled glass), with black roof and hood. The custom wheels are also painted in black with blue lips, to match the body color. The car is not much different than the production version, but it does have a different spoiler and center exhaust tip. The interior has been redesigned as well.
As for the performance, the Mustang by Petty’s Garage is powered by a supercharged 5.0L Roush V-8 engine. Figures were not given, but with Stage 1 kit this engine should deliver at least 590 horsepower and 505 lb-ft of torque. And with the most powerful Stage 3 kit it can produce even more power, expect no less than 675 horses and 585 pound-feet of twist.
I hope the tuner will reveal official numbers during SEMA. Soon after that, the car will go on sale at Barrett-Jackson auction. All the funds will go to Victory Junction Gang Camp for chronically ill children.
2015 Ford Mustang by Galpin Auto Sports
Guys over at Galpin Auto Sports decided to release the 2015 Ford Mustang painted all in black, with addition of gold side skirts, wheels, and Mustang emblem. They also redesigned the front bumper to match the styling of the new headlights, and added carbon-fiber splitter. The LED turn signals are also new. This black and gold combo looks so perfect.
The car also received performance upgrades. It is powered by a supercharged Coyote 5.0L V-8 engine that can produce a total of 725 horsepower. It also received Magnaflow exhaust system and Steeda suspension system. Unfortunately, this model won’t go on sale, but you can admire it at this year’s SEMA Show.
2015 Ford Mustang TKO by MRT
Now, this is something different. Guys over at MRT did a great job with the 2015 Ford Mustang TKO. They upgraded literally everything, from exterior and interior design to engine and chassis. The car is mostly painted in black, with orange roof, custom hood, 3D Carbon rear spoiler, and 20-inch Forgiato wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich tires. Other design updates include new front grille, front bumper with wide splitter tinted glass, and Hitechfx carbon-fiber trims. As for the interior, the tuner added sports seats and trims by Racetech, while the audio system has been provided by Kicker.
TKO in the car’s name stands for Technical Knock Out. With the Air Lift suspension kit and engine upgrades by Vortech and SCT Performance, the Mustang’s 2.3L EcoBoost unit can produce more than 400 horsepower and about 415 lb-ft of torque. It’s not so impressive compared to the two models mentioned above, but it’s still an improvement over the production model.
Full-Race Motorsports Mustang
Next model has been redesigned and tuned up by Full-Race Motorsports. This model offers a number of high-performance components, including a spring suspension kit, adjustable shock absorbers, new brakes by Brembo, limited slip differential, new air intake, intercooler and oil cooler, BorgWarner turbocharger, exhaust modification, as well as some ECU tuning. All these components allow the Mustang’s 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 engine equipped with the FreakBoost package to produce up to 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Also worth mentioning are the racing seats approved by FIA, front splitter made of carbon fiber, and large wing spoiler on the back.
Mustang Outlaw by Classic Design Concepts
The 2015 Ford Mustang Outlaw by Classic Design Concepts painted in red is mostly based on the GT convertible model. This model is characterized by a unique front spoiler, redesigned front grille and hood, side rockers, and 20-inch forged aluminum wheels wrapped in Nitto Invo tires. Optional components include a high-performance exhaust system, new supercharger package, brakes from Wilwood, shock absorbers and lowering springs by Steeda, and axle shafts by Ford Racing. Interior is equipped with leather accents and Kicker Car audio system. The Outlaw is powered by a 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine that can deliver an impressive 625 horsepower.
CDC will also present the coupe model painted in yellow that features the same visual and performance upgrades as the convertible model, but it also adds a small roof spoiler. You can see it in the picture below. The good news for everyone is that the Outlaw package will be serialized and go on sale through CDC distributors. The sale will start in early 2015.
2015 King Cobra Mustang
The best of all these models is the new Mustang King Cobra which can develop more than 600 horsepower. It’s really a beast. Powered by a 5.0L supercharged V-8 engine, it can produce 625 horsepower and it can finish a quarter-mile run in almost 11 seconds. The car is painted in a three-tone combination, consisting of black, gold and red paint, wrapped in scale-like skin. It also has a big cobra on its hood. Of course, many high performance parts were added to increase its performance and handling.
All three 2015 Ford Mustang models presented above will be making their debut at the 2014 SEMA Auto Show which takes place in Las Vegas from November 4 to November 7.
Update: Not surprisingly, Mustang once again has been named the “Hottest Car”. Congratulations to Ford.
In this image gallery you can see even more different models tuned up and redesigned by various aftermarket companies that were presented at the this year’s SEMA Show. I don’t even know all the names of these companies, but that doesn’t matter, we can all enjoy in these beautiful muscle cars.
