Ford Mustangs are stampeding at the SEMA show. Check out this MEGA gallery highlighting the 2015 model.

The new ‘Stang is pretty hot all on its own but when the aftermarket gets a hold of this iconic machine there’s no telling what can happen. Las Vegas is literally overrun with these things this week, which shows you just how popular this all-American performance car really is.

The black-and-blue beauty highlighted above was customized by Richard Petty’s Garage. It will be auctioned off to help Victory Children’s charity. It’s powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine. Spent gasses exit through a unique center-mounted exhaust tip in the specially designed rear fascia. Among many other upgrades it rides on 20-inch wheels and features numerous other styling enhancements.

The folks at Full-Race Motorsports have hopped up an EcoBoost-powered Mustang with pretty impressive results. The car’s 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine has been massaged with a new intake and exhaust system, a larger turbocharger, an upgraded downpipe, a new intercooler and lots more. Output has exploded to 500 hp and 450 lb-ft of twist. In comparison a stock model puts out just 310 ponies and 320 lb-ft of torque.

And these two cars don’t even scratch the surface of the Mustang madness at this year’s SEMA show. There’s the new King Cobra, a 725-hp ‘Stang from Galpin Auto sports and a Ken Block drift monster. Is there a better way than to celebrate this car’s 50th birthday than with awesome aftermarket enhancements?
