Warszawa M20 GT Is A Coachbuilt Mustang Ford Doesn’t Approve Of

KHM Motor Poland is a company founded in 2013 with the goal of building modern reinterpretations of famous Polish cars from the past. One of the most recognizable vehicles made in Poland is the FSO Warszawa M20, also known as the Warszawa 200.

Regardless of the name it carried, it was heavily based on the Soviet-made Gaz M20 Pobeda and became Poland’s first mass-produced car in the 1950s. Ironically, KHM has decided to pay tribute to the original Warszawa by using an American car as a donor vehicle for its latest coachbuilding project.

Said project is called Warszawa M20 GT and it’s based on a 2016 Ford Mustang GT — although we’ll forgive you for not recognizing the pony car hiding under the controversial body kit.

KHM Motor describes the M20 GT’s design as “modern and elegant,” and says the main goal with the car was to capture the essence of the Warszawa M20 while “not forgetting about the latest trends.”

We’ll leave it up to you to say if their goal was achieved. If you haven’t noticed by now, the LED taillights are sourced from the Mercedes-AMG GT, and the company says some Chevrolet Camaro components were used as well.

While the exterior design is questionable, the cabin is quite appealing and has a luxury GT vibe about it. The extensive use of leather and the color combination make for an inviting ambiance, while the center console has been updated with a larger touchscreen.

When it comes to performance, there’s no question the M20 GT is superior to the original car. The Warszawa M20 GT has a lot more power: the 5.0-liter V8 delivers 420 hp while the 2.1-liter inline-four unit of the M20 was only good for 52 hp.

We left some juicy details at the end. On KHM Motor’s website, prospective customers were informed that components and specific elements would be delivered by Ford, with the automaker’s logotype attached to the information. Except that wasn’t true. Following a wide coverage of the Warsaw M20 GT in the Polish media, Ford issued a statement denying any involvement.

“In connection with the information appearing in the media on the alleged cooperation between KHM Motor Poland and Ford of Europe in the implementation of the Warsaw M20 GT project, we would like to inform you that no contract has been signed regarding any Ford cooperation with the said company. The use of the Ford logotype on the KHM Motor Poland website with information on such cooperation is groundless and unlawful,” read the statement cited by Autogaleria.

Shortly after it was published, mentions of Ford’s involvement in the project were erased from KHM Motor’s website. With no supplies from the U.S. carmaker, chances are the M20 GT will remain a one-off effort.

    • Miknik

  • Bash

    Looks like it is hit from the side.

  • Bash

    Besides the color combo, everything else is ugly.

  • rodriguez256

    This looks old badly done and what with the lower link on the doors. It’s amazing that some people are allowed to design automobiles and someone approves it.

  • kachuks

    That classic one looks good.

    • IKR, it’s not the most comfortable or well build but it has it’s charm.

  • SteersUright

    Interior is 1000% improved. Exterior is 1000% ruined. Should just offer to redo mustang interiors.

  • Dave Sturge

    The designer obviously watched that episode of the Simpsons where Ho er designed a car.

  • IT’S NASTY.

  • I just don’t get the point of this, they want to honor Warszawa, which is in essence is a people’s car by making a sportscar based on Mustang, I bet the conversion isn’t cheap either. Also the design doesn’t resonate with that original Warszawa looks really.

  • Six Thousand Times

    I don’t approve of it, either.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I hope to wake up from the nightmare.

  • El de Ngaan

    There’s no polish in this Polish!!!

    the designer plays grand theft auto V too much
