Nine Customized Mustangs Headed to Ford’s Display at SEMA Show
Ford’s Mustang has long been a favorite target of tuners, so it’s no surprise the Blue Oval’s stand at this year’s SEMA show will be home to a range of modified Stangs. Here’s a look at how each tuning entity will tweak the pony car.
Ford Vehicle Personalization (above)
This Mustang GT shows off parts available from the Ford Custom Accessories catalog. Outside, this includes a new rear wing, faux side scoops behind the doors, a billet grille, 18-inch wheels, and louvers for the rear quarter windows. Coral—the pinkish color, not the undersea life form—accents the wheels, side skirts, mirrors, and more. Look for fake carbon fiber accents and black-and-white upholstery inside.
Hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex and Team Baurtwell prepared this Mustang specifically for rapper Snoop Dogg. It wears a 3dCarbon body kit, NC Forged wheels, smoked taillights, and Funkmaster Flex logos. Snoop will enjoy improved hizzandling thanks to a Steeda lowering kit, new anti-roll bars, and Baer brakes.
Michigan-based Mustang Racing Technologies will show off a Mustang GT wearing a new body kit and wheels, a black-and-red color scheme, and faux carbon-fiber elements for the interior and engine bay. The car scores Baer brakes, improved suspension, and a stainless-steel exhaust.
Creations n’ Chrome
This bright-pink Mustang GT convertible is meant to help the American Cancer Society raise awareness about breast cancer. As with many of the other cars, it wears a 3dCarbon body kit and new wheels. Performance credentials come courtesy of a Vortech supercharger and upgraded Wilwood brakes.
Muscle Mustangs and Fast Fords
The folks behind the Stang-fan magazine supplemented the car’s 5.0-liter V-8 with a Ford Racing supercharger kit and Kooks exhaust system. It wears a Roush front fascia and Cervini’s Auto Design hood, and gets upgraded brakes and suspension parts from American Muscle.
Mobsteel chose to upgrade the new Mustang V-6 with an STS turbocharger, Magnaflow exhaust, air suspension, massive Baer brakes, and forged wheels wearing Pirelli tires.
Outside, the Raceskinz Mustang wears a faux-carbon-fiber stripe and Corvette Grand Sport-style fender stripes. Under the hood, this GT has a ProCharger supercharger, Magnaflow exhaust, and—notice a trend yet?—Baer brakes. The rear seats have been nixed and the fronts replaced with Raceskinz buckets; carbon-fiber accent pieces adorn the interior.
Street Scene Equipment
Forgoing performance mods, this convertible wears a new splitter, grille, and fascia up front, with 20-inch wheels tucked into the fenders and a spoiler out back. The interior scores Katzkin leather, a Polk audio system, and a rollover bar.
Neil Tjin and his team equipped their car with LED head- and foglights, StreetGlow neon lighting, a new rear spoiler, air suspension, and Eibach anti-roll bars. Visual flair includes a green-and-orange center stripe and new wheels with orange accents.
