The twin-turbo Ford Racing Mustang Cobra Jet Concept was undoubtedly the star of the 2012 SEMA Show, not just for those in the Mustang community but for the automotive industry as a whole. To be honest, though, it’s what was under the hood of the car that got people truly excited. The twin-turbocharged engine is Ford’s first application of EcoBoost technology for an eight cylinder engine and potentially represents what we could be seeing in future Mustang models, both on the track and on the street.
While we were able to …

Earlier this year Falken Tire announced that they would be giving away a 2013 Ford Mustang customized by Formula Drift drivers Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Justin Pawlak. Seven months and over 100,000 entrants later, the lucky winner has finally taken delivery of the car.
The one-off Mustang featured a custom Hot Lime Green, selected specifically by Justin Pawlak and applied by Creations ‘n Chrome, as well as HRE wheels, a Ford Racing supercharger kit producing 624 horsepower and a Ford Racing adjustable suspension system.

SEMA 2012: Carroll Shelby Tribute

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

Much of SEMA is about looking forward – to new ideas and new products. However, at least one part was dedicated to looking back. This display of Mustangs (and one Cobra) was put together as a tribute to the late Carroll Shelby who passed away in May of this year. While we would have loved to have seen more classic Shelby Mustangs – represented only by a single 1966 GT350, the collection of cars is still impressive. The recently introduced 2013 Shelby GT500 Cobra, a tribute to the man in …

This 2013 Ford Mustang Convertible was on display at the TruFiber booth at SEMA in Las Vegas, and not since Vaughn Gittin Jr’s RTR-C Mustang have we seen so much carbon fiber. The car was fitted with just about every carbon fiber part offered by the company, from the front splitter to the hood to the rear diffuser. Even the convertible top cover was made from carbon fiber.
TruFiber’s Mustang had more than just cosmetic upgrades, though. Under the hood is a Paxton supercharger system, and the suspension system has been …

Of all the Ford Mustangs we were looking forward to seeing at SEMA, this chrome blue Fox Body Mustang built by Creations n’ Chrome of Valencia, CA topped our list. While the Spectra Chrome blue paint job certainly catches the eye, it’s what’s underneath that really impresses. Creations n’ Chrome has taken a race-prepped 1990 Mustang Coupe chassis and squeezed in a Ford Racing Aluminator 5.0L V8 fitted with a Vortech JT-Trim supercharger system that should produce around 700 horsepower. The V8 is set an incredible 17 inches back in …

Classic Design Concepts was out in full force at SEMA this year, proudly displaying their Deep Impact Blue 2013 Ford Mustang featuring the company’s latest body components. You might notice that several of the pieces are similar to Vaughn Gittin Jr’s RTR package, and that’s because they are both made by CDC. Of notable difference is the hood graphics package that flows nicely with the shaker hood system as well as the grille with the GT badging. Finishing things off are the gorgeous RTR 19-inch wheels, which have us debating …

Earlier this year Ford and SEMA announced that they would be teaming up on Mustang project completely designed and built by women. Three concepts were initially created, with the winning design, seen here, being chosen via an online poll. Nicknamed “High Gear”, this Mustang was designed by Jennifer Seely of Ford and is inspired by jewelry, couture clothing and architecture.
Built at Source Interlink’s headquarters in El Segundo, CA under the direction of SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN), “High Gear” features a custom black satin finish with Rose Gold accents, a 3dCarbon …

The name Kenny Brown is legendary in the Mustang community, although the company has been relatively quiet in the past couple years. That’s starting to change, though, with the recent resurgence of the brand. Last year at SEMA Kenny Brown debuted their GT-4T Mustang Convertible, and they’ve followed that up this year with the GT4-RS Autobahn Edition Mustang you see here.
Designed for the track day enthusiast, the GT4-RS features Kenny Brown’s GT4 suspension package and plenty of race-spec equipment including Baer 6-piston front and rear brakes, transmission and oil coolers, …

We’ve already shown you plenty of photos and videos of the 2012 Shelby 1000, which made its debut at the New York Auto Show earlier this year, but with the supercharged V8 producing up to 1,100 horsepower it’s definitely a car that deserves a second look. Or third. Or fourth.
The car pictured here, sporting Kona Blue paint and bare aluminum wheels, is the same exact one that debuted in New York and was on display in the Wilwood booth at SEMA. Under the hood is the aforementioned supercharged 5.4-liter V8 …
