The new Ford Mustang at SEMA 2014

Plenty of tuning firms will be taking a modified 2015 Mustang to next month’s Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas. In fact, Ford is planning to have over a dozen examples on its stand alone.

Among them is going to be a 5.0 litre V8 model specially prepared by Galpin Auto Sports. Thanks to the addition of a gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger and a Magnaflow exhaust system, output is up from the stock 435 bhp (324 kW / 441 PS) to a very impressive 725 bhp (540 kW / 735 PS). That motor, which sits beneath a glazed bonnet panel, is complemented by a Steeda suspension upgrade.

Cosmetic tweaks include a restyled front bumper, bespoke headlights with integrated LED indicators, a carbon fibre front splitter and a larger rear diffuser. To ensure a striking look the GAS Mustang’s black paintwork contains gold metallic flecks, plus the 20” wheels, badges and brake calipers all have a gold finish.

Another V8-powered Mustang set to go on display at SEMA has been created by Petty’s Garage. Sporting a custom blue and black two-tone colour scheme, it uses a Roush supercharger to boost performance.

This particular car is due to be auctioned after the show, with sale proceeds earmarked for the Victory Junction children’s charity.
