2012 SEMA Preview: Ford coming with five customized Mustangs

Article by Christian A., on October 28, 2012

Ford gave us a sneak preview of the modified Mustangs that will be seen at the 2012 SEMA Show. Five custom Mustangs will be displayed at Ford’s booth alongside custom F-Series trucks, Focus STs, Escapes, and an Explorer. Three of the Mustangs feature the 5.0-liter V8 in GT form. One will be a convertible variant equipped with the 3.7-liter V6 powerplant.

Beginning with the convertible, the open-top Mustang was personalized by Stitchcraft with a focus on its custom interior. Its performance gets a boost with the use of nitrous and a FlowMaster exhaust while the exterior receives an overhaul with a 3dCarbon body kit and custom paint scheme. Hotchkis offers help by installing a coilover suspension while Wilwood provides a big brake upgrade.

The 650-hp Mustang GT is the product of a team composed of detailing company Mothers, together with Autosport Dynamics and RTR. This Mustang gets track-ready suspension, an RTR carbon fiber body kit, aggressive wheels and tires, and custom Sparco seats in the interior. DSO Eyewear built a custom Mustang GT, giving it a Whipple twin-screw supercharger with intercooler that enhances its output to 750 hp.

It is equipped with the Eibach suspension and Brembo brakes while a 3dCarbon body kit proves an aggressive look. Rockford Fosgate provides the stereo upgrades. Then there’s the Mustang GT built by Ringbrothers. It is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 and is equipped with Baer brakes, suspension upgrades, a carbon fiber body kit, and a custom ‘waterborne’ paint.

The latest model of Mustang set to be out in the spring of 2012 highlights a more rigid style paired with the famous grille. Its splitter adds more power to its look. A functional heat extractor is also added in its hood to release hot air out from the engine compartment which helps in cooling the engine down.

Mustang’s Chief Designer Darrell Behmer said that their team has been working hard to deliver a more distinct and emotional feel that represents the car’s total performance. They maintained its heritage while at the same time, it boasts a modern and more potent look.

To give it a more premium appearance, the design team improved its rocker panels including the rear panel that supports the taillamps, which have been given a high-gloss black makeover. Upholding the classic sequential turn signal known to Mustangs, this new version’s taillamps highlight a smoked look that matches its solid appearance up front. High-intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps are also available both on the GT and V6 models. It is also equipped with two light-emitting diode (LED) bars that accentuate its headlamps in the front as well as three LED ropes that form the famous three-bar rear lights.
