Hollywood Hot Rods Creates 2014 Ford Mustang Supercar for SEMA
While the Mustang has always been known for speed, power, and beauty, it’s never been fitted with the term “supercar” on its own merits entirely. Looking to give it an extra boost into that rarefied air, the customistas at Hollywood Hot Rods have taken the already-superlative 2014 Ford Mustang GT convertible and reworked it into the Mustang Supercar that will bow at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Hollywood Hot Rods, based out of Burbank and known for restomodding vintage hot rods and roadsters, was out to create a Mustang that didn’t just look the part. Said HHR owner Troy Ladd, “We really wanted to take the customization of this Mustang to the next level. Instead of simply adding accessories and a custom paint job, we wanted to really change the car.”
Four hundred hours alone was spent on creating the new-look rear section and hand-crafted aluminum lift-off roof that evokes Destro. The Mustang Supercar also features custom fabricated aluminum front splitter, side scoops, skirts, and diffuser.
To round out the supercar-style performance aspect, Hollywood Hot Rods added a Cortex Racing X-treme grip track suspension system to keep all four on the floor. A Ford Racing Whipple supercharger and Banks Power water-methanol injection system were included to enhance the already-sterling 5.0L V8 found in the 2014 Mustang GT. The result: 750 furious horses.
Hollywood Hot Rods’ Mustang Supercar will make its eagerly anticipated debut at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 5-8.
