Preview: Four Ford Mustangs Headed To SEMA
It’s that time of year again. We’re not talking about the approaching holiday season, but the annual SEMA show held in the city of sin. The show exhibitors and media look forward to as they unveil some of the sweetest cars built only for such an event and also hot new parts ready to hit the market. Not only are there awesome decked out rides, but some of our own idols wander the floor from Chip Foose to Richard Petty.
The four Mustangs will be joining the Ford party at the show with designs by Ring Brothers, Stitchcraft, DSO Eyewear and a the brand trio Mothers, AutoSport Dynamics and RTR. Other Ford models have already been announced that they will grace their presence at the show as well such as the F-150, Focus ST, and Fusion models to be displayed at SEMA. Here’s a preview of what to expect.
Up first, the Ringbrothers Mustang (as the featured photo) equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 connected to a six-speed transmission. On top of that, add a supercharger and an upgraded suspension, big Baer brakes and a body kit made of lightweight carbon fiber. It shows off big wheels with rubberband-like tires. The color is made from environmentally friendly waterborne paint that meet the newest standards in regards to low volatile organic compounds.
The next Mustang is made from Stitchcraft out of California. This company reupholsters RVs, boats, cars and obviously digs the Mustang as a demo considering its starting with a V6 Mustang convertible. Besides new reupholstery, the Stitchcraft ‘Stang has a nitrous-injection kit bolted on and Hotchkis coil-overs. The rumble comes from FlowMaster exhaust and stopping power is provided by Wilwood brakes. A slick body kit by 3dCarbon ties it all together and can’t wait to see this rendering come to life.
Another company bringing a customized ‘Stang to the table is DSO Eyeware. You’d think that would be an odd choice for an eyeware company. However, the one that is SEMA-bound is rockin’ about 750-hp. Power provided by a Whipple supercharger and intercooler help make these big numbers. Let’s not forget the Eibach suspension and the big Brembos for stopping power. Bodywork is also by 3dCarbon and audio is rockin’ by Rockford-Fosgate. This isn’t their first custom ride, either. A Chevy Camaro ‘vert and a modded Ford Explorer show up on their website. The company sells shades of course. Whether your driving or just wanting to feel glamourous, or something like that.
RTR, the company that Vaughn Gittin Jr. helped brand, is the last ‘Stang mentioned out of the four. This is a track-ready V8 car with a modified suspension, modified body kit made out of carbon-fiber, custom upholstery, Sparco seats, and a nice 650 horses.
