2010 SEMA Preview: 2011 Mustang Concepts

2010 SEMA Preview: 2011 Mustang Concepts

The news coming in about the upcoming SEMA Show next week is getting hotter by the day. We are packing our camera equipment and getting ready to camp out on the show floor all week to bring you hourly updates and full show coverage. But Ford is letting us get a glimpse of what will be there this week for Mustang.

Ford Motor Company is tapping the 2010 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show in Las Vegas to showcase nine customized versions of Mustang, displaying the vehicles alongside the new Mustang Boss 302.

“The 2011 model year sets a new standard for Mustang, with everything from bringing back the revered 5.0-liter V8 Mustang GT to the all-aluminum 3.7-liter engine in the Mustang V6 with 305 horsepower and 31 mpg. And it doesn’t stop for 2012, with the Mustang Boss 302 reveal and the track-ready Laguna Seca version,” said Jim Owens, Mustang brand manager. “SEMA is a great way for Ford to not only show customers what’s new for Mustang, but what they can do to make it their own Mustang.”

While the 2012 Mustang Boss 302 is sure to impress visitors at the Ford stand, a variety of Mustangs on display also will give consumers an idea of the endless possibilities for making it a one-of-a-kind pony car.

“People understand Mustang and they fall in love with the emotion of the car, but at the same time they want to bring a little of their individuality to the table,” said Melvin Betancourt, Ford design manager. “So if you’re a Mustang enthusiast looking to set your Mustang apart from others, SEMA is like going into a toy store full of inspirational imagery. At the end of the day you have a Mustang that reflects the personality of the customer’s vision.”

A Mustang GT by Ford Vehicle Personalization shows what can be fashioned using Ford Custom Accessories items and some serious creativity. The exterior of the car is coated in a custom white tri-coat color developed by Sherwin-Williams. The paint has coral undertones, a color used throughout the car.

“This theme is a perfect fit for Mustang – it really shows off the design features inside and out that set it apart from the rest,” said Mark Conforzi, Ford Vehicle Personalization chief designer. “This Mustang works so well because it will let the customer’s imagination run wild with just how much they can do to their car.”

Ford Custom Accessories items are used to give consumers a sense of what can be done with Mustang, and include a rear pedestal spoiler, rear quarter window louvers, side scoops and a billet grille – all covered in a concept liquid silver finish. The look is rounded out with 18-inch machined liquid silver wheels, similar to the ones standard on the California Special Mustang.

The interior of the Mustang features a concept design that uses white and black Ultrafabrics material on a variety of surfaces, with inserts that resemble carbon fiber. The white material is highlighted on the seats, door inserts, steering wheel and dash appliqué. Coral accents also set the mood inside, where they are used on the steering wheel, gauge cluster, shifter knob and air vents. Interior styling also includes coral accent lighting for a unique touch.

Other Mustang project vehicles showcased at this year’s SEMA show include:

MRT always has something exciting for the SEMA Show, can’t wait to see it!

With the backing of one of the top Mustang magazines out there, this one should be killer!

This Mustang offers plenty of upgrades to fill the needs of any Mustang enthusiast. An STS Turbo patented remote mount turbo system, Air Runner suspension and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust all push the V6 Mustang into a new level of performance.

2011 Ford Mustang by Raceskinz

The team at Raceskinz took a Mustang with a 5.0-liter and started work inside, where they used a rear seat-delete package complete with new Raceskinz bucket seats. A ProCharger intercooled supercharger, Magnaflow cat-back exhaust and Baer brake system deliver on performance. Raceskinz carbon fiber accessories throughout add an extra touch of customization. Classic clean look from this first time entry from Raceskinz.

The exterior is highlighted by a Street Scene chin spoiler, main grille, lower valance grille and rear wing and valance.

2011 Ford Mustang by Tjin Edition

This Tjin Edition Mustang GT sports a custom DuPont paint job and will be outfitted with a Webasto sunroof, Unique Fabrication metal wing, Ignited LED headlights and fog lights and StreetGlow lighting. The suspension is modified with a full digital air suspension kit from Air Lift and an Eibach antiroll kit and trailer arms. The look seems to be unique and all its own. It is always great to see a fresh new perspective on the Mustang.
