Buckets of horsepower, removable aluminum roof and Whipple supercharger are highlights of Ford’s custom Mustangs bound for Las Vegas.
So it seems the Vortech Supercharged Yellow Jacket Mustang won’t be the only custom Stang on the SEMA show floor next month, as Ford has just teased two more wild Mustangs that will form part of its 28 custom car lineup at the Las Vegas aftermarket extravaganza. First up is the supercar-inspired Hollywood Hot Rods Mustang GT Convertible, which comes complete with a removable aluminum roof that took 250 hours to make. Look closely and you’ll see that also made from aluminum are custom side scoops, skirts, front splitter and rear diffuser.
Under the hood, a 5.0-liter V8 delivers 750 hp thanks to a Ford Racing Whipple supercharger and Banks Straight-Shot Water-Methanol injection system. The so-called Mustang Flame was built alongside Nitto and features a BASF R-M Onyx Race Red paint scheme, 3dCarbon body kit and GT500-inspired grille. A 5.0-liter V8 upgraded with Ford Racing goodies sends power to the ground via Niche Plus alloys wrapped in Nitto NT05 Max performance tires.
