At the SEMA Show, no other vehicle gets more attention and fawning than the Ford Mustang. It’s just how it is, just how its always been. And this year, it’s likely how it will be again.
We’ll start with Bismoto’s 900 Horsepower 2.3 liter EcoBoost Mustang. Concept or reality? Ford tells us Bisimoto designed 14 new parts for this car’s engine and chassis this year. You don’t go to that kind of brain damage if you don’t plan to sell them.
Social media concern Motoroso built a custom Mustang to promote their site. Under hood is a Roush supercharged 5.0-liter V8 with 727 horsepower.
The red 21-inch wheels are cool, but it’s the multiple iPads in the trunk that let people interact with the Motoroso app that are important.
Sporting a drop top, the TS Designs Mustang gets wide body love for its 13-inch wide rear wheels.
Those are supported by a Steeda Autosports Stage 3 Handling Package and lowering springs in addition to a full custom interior treatment you can lean in to look at.
This black and blue Mustang convertible by MAD Industries with its brilliant blue wheels will catch your eye, but also a Trevino leather and Miko Suede interior in the same bright shade. It’s also got the obligatory 700 plus horsepower supercharged V8 which seems to be the baseline this year.
The Ice Nine Group took their EcoBoost Mustang in the styling direction of the GT-350, with an import tuner vibe.
It’s heavily-tuned powertrain has 475 wheel-horsepower by way of a bigger Garrett turbo, Corsa prototype exhaust system, and custom tuning by Dead Hook Motorsports.
The DRAGG Mustang police car might just be the ticket. With custom police lighting and a ton of performance mods to go with its stunning visuals it just makes you ask why doesn’t Ford offer the Mustang in a pursuit vehicle again.
Like their F-150 concept, CGS took a more sane approach to their Mustang concept. Set off with custom 21-inch front and 22-inch rear wheels, this show car makes its mark in subtle and high quality details inside and out.
Perhaps the most striking Mustang to look at this year might be the one by Bojix Design. And forgive me it I butchered their name. The EcoBoost Mustang gets a high contrast paint job that really pops along with its laundry list of performance mods.
This is just a taste folks. Next week, we will have a full run down of all these cars and more Ford Mustang news as it unfolds from the SEMA Show, so be sure to come back and see us for that.
