Ford will have over 50 vehicles on display in Las Vegas at the 2017 SEMA Show, and seven of them will be 2018 Ford Mustang sports cars.

With the new Mustang being introduced earlier this year, it’s the perfect project car for tuners to take on for this year’s SEMA Show. This year’s projects range from mild to wild, and even a couple convertibles will see action from tuners. One of the projects we’re excited to see is the Roush Mustang featuring a custom widebody with styling cues from the historic 1970 Boss 429. It’s even finished in Ford’s commemorative shade of Grabber Green while sporting 20-inch Vossen wheels on all four corners.

Another project aims to go 200 mph, thanks to a Hellion twin turbo kit and reducing drag.

One of the most conservative projects comes from Air Design, sporting a more subtle body kit on the 2.3-liter EcoBoost-powered Mustang.

Along with the two convertible projects, you’ll also want to keep an eye out for the Drag Racing Against Gangs and Graffiti (DRAGG) Mustang, with a unique custom Guardian-themed police vehicle. will be reporting live from the 2017 SEMA Show as the Las Vegas Convention Center, so check back later this month for coverage.
