Ford Details 725HP Gold-Obsessed Galpin Auto Sports Mustang


Read more


Ford has released additional details about the customized Mustang built by Galpin Auto Sports for SEMA to celebrate Ford Mustang’s 50th birthday.

The golden anniversary car features a restyled front fascia to match the three streaks found in the factory headlights, but the latter are replaced by new headlights with integrated LED turn signals and turn on in sequence. The car also features carbon fiber front splitter and rocker panels, as well as a more aggressive rear diffuser.

The exterior is finished in paint that may appear black, but a closer look reveals that it is filled with gold metallic flakes. The 20-inch wheels, side sills, brake calipers and badging are also finished in gold. Inside, everything that is normally chrome or metallic has either been blacked-out or given the gold treatment. The Recaro seats are covered with a fabric finished in black and gold, and the headliner is black microsuede.

Under the hood, a gold powder-coated Whipple supercharger helps the 5.0-liter V8 develop 725 horsepower. Suspension components from Steeda and an all-new exhaust from Magnaflow complete the mechanical upgrades.

“We like the black and gold idea, and really wanted to get the color as close to 24-carat gold as possible,” Brandon Boeckmann, GAS operations manager, explained the gold theme.

Ford said the spotlight at the 2014 SEMA will be on the all-new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which has “much more potential for performance,” according to the automaker. Several tuners will unveil high-powered versions of the new turbo four-cylinder which produces 310 hp and 320 lb-ft (434 Nm) of torque in standard form.
