Hollywood Hot Rods customizes 2014 Ford Mustang GT

Article by Anita Panait, on October 28, 2013

Hollywood Hot Rods adores the 2014 Ford Mustang GT convertible so much that it decided to customize the supercar and take it to the next new level. Hollywood Hot Rods wants to recreate the already elegant style and proportions of the Mustang to come up with a unique project. According to Troy Ladd, owner of Hollywood Hot Rods, they wanted to really change the car, instead of just adding accessories and a custom paint job.

Ladd said they decided to redesign some key elements of the Mustang -- like its roof and rear section --  “to create a completely new and bold design that propels Mustang into supercar status while retaining classic Mustang DNA.” The team at Hollywood Hot Rods spent over 150 hours of reshaping the entire rear section of the Mustang project car in metal.

The team then spent 250 hours crafting the supercar’s aluminum lift-off roof. The result is a modified aluminum custom fabricated front splitter, side scoops, skirts and diffuser, paving way for the Hollywood Hot Rods Mustang. The resulting unit boasts of a Ford Racing Whipple supercharger and Banks Power water-methanol injection system that boosted the output of the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 to an estimated 750 hp.

To optimize the power generated by the upgraded engine, Hollywood Hot Rods installed a Cortex Racing X-treme grip track suspension system. Ladd remarked that Hollywood Hot Rods used extreme body modifications, serious race car handling, huge horsepower and a full custom interior “to create an American supercar.”
