CDC_Ford_Mustang_Gumball_2010

The “Undefeated” Team from Classic Design Concepts (CDC) is set to put their SEMA special to the test in the 2010 Gumball 3000 rally race.  The “Weekend Warrior” Ford Mustang , which we saw enter the stage at SEMA, is no stranger to being a dualistic track and street terror.  “The concept behind the Weekend Warrior, which we unveiled at SEMA in 2009, was to build a street legal Mustang that could also double as a track car,” said George Huisman, president of Classic Design Concepts.

The Weekend Warrior Ford Mustang is well-poised to take on the field, with add-ons including, but not limited to: Ford Racing parts, upgraded rubber on all 4 corners, Baer braking, and Maximum Motorsports suspension components.

Take a good look at the laundry list of goodies CDC has thrown onto the Weekend Warrior Mustang and wish the “Undefeated” Team from CDC good luck in the Gumball 3000 rally!

The Compilation of Ford Mustang Special Editions

2009 Ford Mustang

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past oh say, 15 years, you’d sure to realize the Ford Mustang aftermarket is something that continues to sizzle on far beyond the dreams Carroll Shelby and Lee Iacocca ever imagined back in the 1960s.  The staggering number of late-model Mustang spin-offs is something that could be seen as awesome, inspiring, or even sometimes comical.  It’s quite daunting just how many flavors of the Ford Mustang there are.  What’s more, we’ve done our best to draft up a list for you to digest, observe, and most importantly–help continue to add to it where we’ve left out!

Ready for this bitter pill?  You better be, because we’re going to take a look at the comments to see if there are any we’ve missed (to date) and then also recruit you to help build the SN95, Fox, Mustang II, and Classic special edition lists.  We’ve got the page breaks ready, so let’s hear it!

2010 Saleen S281

2010 Saleen S281

We told you just weeks ago, we’d be back to bring you more of the 2010 Saleen S281 Ford Mustang, so here we are.  With the “sanctioned” debut set for SEMA in Las Vegas, Saleen Performance Vehicles decided today to release some more images of the Saleen ‘Stang to keep the excitement rolling.  So far, nothing has been released as far as specific details on the sleek pony car, but from what we can see, this definitely appears to have the shaping of a Mustang worthy of the Saleen nameplate.  Wonder what Steve’s thinking right now…

We’ll bring more of this 2010 Saleen to you as we catch it, as the SEMA show and its onslaught of Ford Mustang madness will surely keep everyone on their toes, looking for their very own “best in show” from this fall’s aftermarket expo.  Enjoy the images for now; Saleen will have to feed us more later!

Saleen’s latest – the 2010 SMS 460 Ford Mustang

SMS 2010 Mustang 460

Mere days ago, Steve Saleen and his new(er) organization, SMS Supercars, took the wraps off the 2010 SMS 460 Ford Mustang at the “Mustangs Northwest Roundup” in Seattle, WA.  The latest modified Mustang from Steve’s dreams will be the only one officially authorized to bear the Steve Saleen nameplate as a tribute to the dedication, history, and success he has cultured for over 30 years.  Steve states the SMS 460 Mustang is “…everything I stand for.  It reflects my unrivaled tenure in the Mustang business…”.  Well, Mr. Saleen, if SMS is exactly what you say and the SMS 460 delivers what’s promised, color us excited.  We’ll be waiting to see more of this slick pony car later this year when the launch happens.  What’s more interesting is the SMS460 will come in two trims: the base and the “X”.  The SMS 460 is equipped with a 4.6 liter V8 producing 470 hp and 427 ft-lb of torque, while its bigger brother blasts out (with the help of an upgraded internal assembly and some head work) 655 hp and 600 ft-lb of torque from a 5.0 liter block.  Over 650 hp?  The story gets better and better…  Both SMS 460 flavors get their insane power increases by utilizing the new SMS 296 Supercharger to provide a healthy breath of forced induction.

There’s lots more to these cars, so keep reading for more details in the official Press Release.
