Forgiato, H&R Springs, Creations n’ Chrome and MRT Performance headlined Ford’s booth with four fantastic Pony creations that Henry Ford would be proud of. Showing off the versatility of Ford’s staple sports car, the four different builders/manufacturers truly created four different machines for us to enjoy.
Forgiato’s widebody Mustang did not disappoint, sporting massive 21-inch wheels in the front and 22-inch wheels in the rear. Ensuring that the wheels fit the body, Forgiato teamed up with TS Designs for a custom wide body while 3dCarbon’s Boy Racer body kit gives the Mustang plenty of bite in the styling department. To top it all off, the matte silver paint job from PPG makes the Mustang a true show stopper.
H&R’s Ford Mustang exemplifies performance while maintaining the Mustang’s classic and sleek lines. Even though we couldn’t see the Edelbrock E-Force supercharger under the hood, there’s no denying that this Mustang has the proper stance thanks to H&R’s RSS suspension kit. The Street Scene Equipment body kit and custom blue paint by Tri-Star Enterprise makes this one clean ‘Stang.
Clearly the flashiest of the four is Creations n’ Chrome’s Ford Mustang. Just one quick glance and the Spectra Chrome Boy Racer Red catches your attention like nothing else on the show floor – except maybe the Hot Wheels Camaro. The 18-inch HRE wheels nice and classy while the rest of the Mustang is contrasted by carbon fiber accents.
MRT Performance dubbed their Mustang “TKO” and clearly looks like a knock out. The orange and black two-tone paint job is offset by silver accents and the carbon fiber Forgestar wheels are a complete winner. H&R coilovers gives the Mustang a menacing stance on the show floor, backed by Baer Brakes and MRT’s brake ducts.

At least four different companies will be bringing their vision of the ultimate custom Ford Mustang to this year’s SEMA Show. Ford released some info and images of four Mustang projects that will be showcased in the Blue Oval booth this year, but our sources say that these won’t be the only ones. Nonetheless, the four that Ford deemed worthy of revealing to the public are from Forgiato Wheels, Creations n’ Chrome, MRT Performance and H&R Springs.
Starting with Forgiato’s creation, the wheel manufacturer looked to build a Mustang that clearly focused on their manufacturing of custom rollers for various vehicles. They chose to show off a three-piece staggered 21- and 22-inch setup on their Mustang while a TS Designs wide body matched to a 3dCarbon Boy Racer body kit is sure to set it apart from the crowd. Finished off with a matte pearl silver paint job courtesy of PPG and this Mustang looks to be a clear winner. Oh, and the obligatory Vortech supercharger can be seen under the hood.
Next up is a Spectra Chrome Boy Racer Red Mustang courtesy of Creations n’ Chrome. Accented by a carbon fiber hood, roof and trunk from Autosport Dynamics, this Mustang will clearly be the flashiest of the bunch. A custom chromoly roll cage was also fabricated by the folks at Creations n’ Chrome while a set of 18-inch HRE Wheels will further set off the car. Again, another Vortech supercharger can be seen under the hood while some race-inspired interior modifications will have to be seen at the show.
Third on the list is a ProCharger supercharger-equipped Mustang from MRT Performance. Further performance modifications include an MRT stainless steel MaxFlow h-pipe and half-back exhaust system while a set of H&R coilovers gives this Mustang enhanced handling capabilities. MRT then looked to the outside by giving it a custom hood and paint accents while the interior received a pair of Sparco race seats.
Last but not least, the folks over at H&R will be bringing an Edelbrock E-Force supercharged Mustang to the show, fully equipped with H&R Springs’ Coil RSS sport suspension. In addition, H&R also threw on their sway bars (front and rear) and Triple C adjustment bolts. This Mustang will have an unmistakable rumble thanks to a Flowmaster stainless steel exhaust while the exterior will feature a full body kit from Street Scene Equipment and custom paint by Tri-Star Enterprise.
