NASCAR pilot Ryan Blaney and car photographer Larry Chen presented their coupe version

NASCAR pilot Ryan Blaney and car photographer Larry Chen have prepared a retro version of the Ford Mustang GT for the SEMA show. The inspiration for the fastback livery was the coloring of the racing GT40, and under its hood was a V8 5.0 with a Roush mechanical supercharger.

The famous British concept artist Hizil Selim worked on the exterior of the “retro coupe”, and all the work on re-equipping the coupe was carried out in the Los Angeles workshop of Galpin Auto Sports. The red-black-and-white livery of the Mustang is inspired by the coloring of the Ford GT40, which took part in the 1966 Daytona Hours. Wheels – 20-inch Fifteen52 Podium Super Touring with special aerodynamic lining and tires Yokohama Advan.

Under the hood, the Ford Mustang GT has a five-liter V8 Coyote family with a Roush compressor. Its return instead of 466 forces and 569 Nm of torque is 710 horsepower and 827 Nm of torque. The fastback is equipped with ST Suspension XTA coilovers, MagnaFlow Competition Series exhaust system and Wilwood brakes. Inside the car, NRG Race racing buckets, a NASCAR-style steering wheel and FIA-certified six-point safety belts with a beam mount are installed. The luggage compartment and its lid are made of carbon fiber by Anderson Composites.

The custom Mustang GT became part of the MoneyLion HERE WE ROAR Sweepstakes project, which launched in April. In total, it was planned to present three special versions of the pony car: the first was built by drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr. and the youngest NASCAR winner Joey Logano, the second by Austin Zindrich racer and auto enthusiasts Dave and Tucci House.

In August this year, Brown Lee Performance, an American workshop, introduced a special version of the Ford Mustang in the Gulf’s historic Lehman livery. Under the hood of a sports car, they hid the compressor 5.0 V8 of the Coyote family, the output of which was increased to 811 forces and 915 Nm of torque.
