This Retro-Inspired Ford Mustang Has 700 HP And Is Heading To SEMA

Every year, SEMA attracts a wide array of modified vehicles and this Ford Mustang, designed by NASCAR Cup Series driver Ryan Blaney and photographer Larry Chen, is one of the finest.

The car has been created through a collaboration between MoneyLion and Ford Performance and started off with a Ford Mustang GT that had undergone a host of upgrades from Galpin Auto Sports. Most significantly, the pony car’s 5.0-liter V8 is now joined by a massive supercharger to churn out 700 hp and 610 lb-ft (827 Nm) of torque. Complementing the engine upgrades is a MagnaFlow cat-back exhaust and Wilwood performance brakes.

Adorning the car is an eye-catching livery inspired by the Ford GT40 race cars that competed at the Daytona 24 Hour race back in 1966. Noted designer and rendering artist Khyzyl Saleem played a key role in creating the red, black, and white livery. A set of stunning wheels also stand out.

As for the interior, it has been stripped out and a new steering wheel has been fitted as have racing bucket seats from NRG.

“Larry has an incredible eye for making cars look amazing,” Blaney said. “I don’t know how, but through the lens of his camera, he’s able to see things much differently than most people. And his creativity and passion can be seen in every aspect of the car we teamed up to build for one lucky fan.”

Prior to the car coming to SEMA, it will debut at the 500 race at Talladega on Sunday, October 13.

    Love it, thinks its gorgeous. Just wish I’d see someone do a lightweight Mustang to really let that V8 shine.
