SEMA 2011: HR Springs Project Legend Ford Mustang

2011-sema-hr-springs

The 2011 SEMA show in Las Vegas brought on special editions galore of the famed Ford Mustang, and one more that caught our spied-eye, was the 2012 Mustang “Project Legend” put together by H&R Special Springs LP.  The idea here?  Combine harnessed American muscle with a European styled suspension to make for a car capable of slithering down the Autobahn without missing a beat.

H&R took a 2012 Ford Mustang GT and added a whole host of suspension components to bolster the overall ride and responsiveness of the pony car.  Such add-ons include RSS Club Sport coil-overs and H&R Sway Bars, upgraded tires / wheels, and LOTS more goodies to bolster the power, as well as the appeal of the H&R Springs “Project Legend” Ford Mustang GT.

Paul Brown takes the #50 BOSS 302S Ford Mustang to the top

All summer long, we kept Ford Mustang fans posted on the hot racing action Paul Brown has put down in the #50 2012 Mustang BOSS 302S racer and now, he’s got even more to be proud of.  Brown recently placed first in the 2011 Pirelli World Challenge Race, solidifying the GTS Championship title.  Just one more race remains in the 2011 season, but Brown has already matched honors with the legendary BOSS 302 racer, Parnelli Jones–if he gets one more “W” in his final race at Road Atlanta, he’ll get to scribe his name in the books of Ford Mustang racing legends.

Awesome. We saw Tiger Racing’s Mustang in action back in June at Hallett Motor Racing Circuit and seriously, it put a good hurting on the track.  Brown’s got some good mojo going behind the wheel of this 2012 BOSS 302S and we wish nothing but the best for him & Tiger Racing.

ROUSH Hyper Series Stage 3 Ford Mustang

Looks like there is another 2012 Ford Mustang to hit the streets, based upon the already awesome ROUSH Stage 3 (RS3) Mustang crafted by ROUSH Performance.  This 2012 Mustang “Hyper Series” Stage 3 boasts a whopping 540hp and 465ft-lbs of torque, has a fully-tuned suspension capable of pinning over 1G of lateral force, and of course, continues to follow in the steps of warranted craftsmanship we all know well enough from ROUSH Performance products.

So what sets the Hyper Series Stage 3 apart from its vanilla namesake?  A barrage of 4 limited edition appearance packages set to mark the cars with a bit more panache and attractiveness than what’s normally expected by the ROUSH enthusiast crowd.  There are 288 graphics and paint color combos that could be had by any prospective ROUSH Mustang owner.  The Hyper-Series brings on an offering of “four spectacular and unique graphics and interior colors that provide a customized appearance to the RS3.”

New 2012 Ford Mustang customization site with “Battle Mode”

If there’s one thing for certain in these uncertain times, it’s there is no shortfall when it comes to the attention a Ford Mustang gets. Once by Ford Engineers & Line workers, more by potential buyers, and loads more once the coveted legend finds the way to its home stable.  What sets the Mustang everyone knows & loves apart is the fact it’s got a great aftermarket following and Ford knows it.  What’s more, Ford has sought to grasp some of those same alleyway customizations and bring them to the limelight as valid manufacturer-sanctioned options for the showroom.

The latest marketing montage Ford has in-pocket is another configuration / customization website for the 2012 Mustang.  The new Ford Mustang Customizer site lets enthusiasts custom-craft their very own Mustang based upon a myriad of choices & options.  Up on deck is the capability to tweak out the 2012 Mustang V6, the 2012 Mustang GT, a 2012 Mustang Boss 302, or a 2012 Shelby GT500, including three different backdrops, nearly a half-dozen shot angles, and a wide selection of options to choose from.  Also, once a custom 2012 Mustang is created, the concept can be shared via social media sites, such as Facebook & Twitter, to exhibit and optionally engage in a “battle mode” of sorts where votes are cast for the coolest 2012 Mustang.

The site officially goes live  Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011.  Until then, check out the rest of the story in the Ford Press Release that follows.
