Most of the cars attending SEMA this year wear yellow dressing. A week ago Hyundai came up with the “Yellow Cake” Night Racer Veloster. Ford is not left out in the background. It releases a new version of the Ford Mustang GT, the so called the Mustang “Yellow Jacket.” This GT is a result from collaboration between Ford and Vortech Superchargers.
Vortech is adjusting the beastly V-3 Si blower that boosts the output of the Mustang’s 5.0-liter, V-8 engine from 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque to an astounding 605 horsepower and 473 pound-feet of torque. This machine hits 60 mph in only incomplete four seconds and reaches a top speed of about 185 mph.
The Mustang Yellow Jacket, furthermore, features a Webasto sunroof, cowl-induction hood, a carbon-fiber, a new body kit courtesy of 3D Carbon, a set of 20-inch iForged Icon wheels with Falken Azenis FK452 tires, and a tuned suspension.
The Ford Mustang GT counts as one of the most legendary American muscle cars.
Some of the newest alterations to this model car are a more highlighted grille, new LED signature lighting, and a new hood. Moreover, there is an alternative GT Track Package including an engine cooler, performance friction brake pads, an upgraded radiator, and the standard Torsen differential from the Mustang Boss 302.
Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group admitted: “As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang. We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance.”
Additional upgrades are:
Webasto custom electronic sunroof
Wheels and tires: iForged Icon three-piece wheels – 20- x 9-inch front, 20- x 11-inch rear (black chrome centers with flat black lips) wrapped in Falken Azenis FK453 tires (275/40/20 front, 315/35/20 rear)
Suspension and braking: Custom powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension package and Baer 6S six-piston brakes at all four corners
