Filip Trojanek's 1966 Widebody Mustang Race Car

This 1966 Mustang coupe stood out in the crowd of show cars here at SEMA with its four-inch fender flares and huge front splitter and rear wing. Owned by Filip Trojanek, this Mustang is built purely for road racing with a CorteX SLA front suspension and watts linkage, Öhlins TTX coilover suspension, and Jongbloed 18-inch split-spoke racing wheels and Stoptech brakes both front and rear. Inside is a CorteX roll cage built by Kertz Fabrication,  OMP race seats and a Personal Racing steering wheel. The Ford faithful won’t be happy to hear what’s under the hood, though, as Trojanek has installed a Corvette LS7 V8 upgraded to 568 horsepower and 508 lb-ft torque. He will be putting the car through its paces this weekend at the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational.
