This year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas had a tremendous showing from the Steeda Autosports team, with their exhibition of the Steeda Fiesta Sport, the performance tuned Steeda Fusion Sport, and the asphalt rippin’ 5.0L Steeda StreetFighter Ford Mustang. The 2011 5.0-liter supercharged Q650 Steeda StreetFighter was up on display at the Nitto Tire booth, proudly donning the latest & greatest in ultra high performance tires–the Nitto NT05.
Coupled with the NT05 rubber, the Steeda StreetFighter Mustang also received a plethora of suspension upgrades; more applied to any of their production vehicles in times past. Joining the party is also the famed Watts Link Suspension setup, permitting this Steeda Mustang to pull over 1.5Gs on the skid! As far as performance goes, the Steeda Q650 StreetFighter has ample power to brag about a 0 to 60 time under 4 seconds & a 1320ft time of resting comfortably in the 10s.
