Mustang Stampede Galloping to SEMA
Arguably Ford’s totally redesigned 2015 Mustang is one of the most exciting cars to come out in the last few years. Further hyping this important launch the company will have a whole heard of them at next month’s SEMA show.
Ford will showcase more than a dozen modified Mustangs in Las Vegas. Cars will be tweaked and tuned by companies like Galpin Auto Sports, Petty’s Garage, MRT and others.
This car’s legendary 5.0-liter V8 is of course a highlight and a darling of the aftermarket but Ford’s all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine has tons of tuning potential. Not surprisingly it will be a prominent part of the company’s display.
This turbocharged four-cylinder delvers 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque in stock form but its true potential has not been reached. Tuning companies will undoubtedly be able to extract more kibbles and bits from this little banger.
But don’t think the Mustang’s tried and true two-by-four is obsolete. Galpin Auto Sports is celebrating the car’s 50th anniversary by showing off a Mustang with a special gold motif. The car has gold trim, badges and special brake calipers. But that’s not all. It 5.0-liter V8 brandishes a Whipple supercharger and puts out 725 hp!
The SEMA show runs from November 4 to the 7. AutoGuide.com will be there in force covering the latest news and most exciting reveals.
