SEMA is here and we’ll be seeing lots of radical car designs and aftermarket goodies that will either improve or destroy your ride if you’re not careful. Before the show has even started we are already seeing a slew of announcements, like the Mazda Kuro and Speedster concepts that will be gracing the show. But there’s another car that’s worthy of your attention during this moment of car aftermarket news vomit, and that’s the Zero-To-60-Designs’ GTT.
This is a plain old Ford Mustang that has been given a significant face lift, befitting to pay homage to the lighter, more exclusive, and MUCH more expensive bigger brother, the $400,000 Ford GT. According to Autoblog:
The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 gets a supercharger from ProCharger, Magnaflow dual exhaust, and an ECU tune from SCT Performance. These modifications are claimed to be good for over 800 horsepower. The company also upgraded the car’s handling and braking abilities with Eibach Pro-Street-S suspension, Brembo brakes and Pirelli P-Zero tires.
800 horsepower given the Ford Mustang GT’s starting weight would mean a power to weight ratio that could be enough to beat the Ford GT itself! There has been no actual figures on the Ford GT’s curb weight other than Ford’s claim that “The GT will exhibit one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car.” They’ve made that claim based on their extensive use of carbon-fiber all over the car. Regardless, 800 horsepower from the 5.0 liter engine will be plenty enough to roast the likes of the Hellcat and other supercars in a straight line.
If all of that tickles your fancy then there’s good news, as Zero-To-60-Designs will put the GTT into production starting in 2017. How much will it cost for a really fast Ford Mustang GT that looks like the Ford GT? You’ll have to wait for that when they announce pricing on Christmas. Stay tuned!
