This German-tuned Mustang costs more than the new Shelby GT500.
The Ford Mustang has been on sale in America for over 50 years, but it’s a different story across the pond. In Europe, the mighty Mustang has only been on sale for four years. It seemed somewhat ironic, then, that the limited-edition Mustang55 was revealed as a European exclusive.
The Mustang55 also didn’t feature any performance upgrades. To rectify this, German tuner Wolf Racing has given the special-edition pony car a massive power boost in celebration of the company’s 40th anniversary. But it doesn't come cheap.
Limited to only seven examples, Wolf Racing’s creation is based on the European-market Ford Mustang GT, which boasts 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque in standard spec, to which the tuner added an Edelbrock supercharger that increases the output to a whopping 735 hp and 649 lb-ft. The upgrade can be fitted to models equipped with either a six-speed manual or ten-speed automatic transmission. With this upgrade, Wolf Racing’s Mustang will hit 62 mph in less than four seconds and 124 in around 10. To help the Mustang cope with this extra muscle, Wolf Racing has refined the handling by installing a new limited-slip differential and an adjustable coilover suspension that lowers the ride height by 1.18 inches.
The modified Mustang sits on 21-inch rims with Michelin Pilot Sport tires and has also been fitted with a carbon fiber lip spoiler. Inside, there are sports seats with stitched black leather, a sports steering wheel, and special ‘One of 7’ badging highlighting its exclusivity.
Inevitably, the customized Mustang's rarity comes at a hefty price. Wolf Racing’s limited-edition Mustang costs an eye-watering €94,440 – that’s $106,197. To put that in perspective, that’s even more expensive than the new 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, which starts at $70,300 and has even more power on tap. Your choice.
