Brown Lee Ford is creating the most powerful and expensive Ford Mustang you can buy brand new. The Tennessee dealership is paying tribute to the Le Mans winning GT40, which conquered the endurance race in 1968 and 1969.
Of course, this means the Mustang will be wearing the iconic orange and blue paint job. Each of the 119 planned vehicles is licensed by Gulf Oil with badging inside and out.
But this is not just a blast from the past. The Gulf Heritage Mustang is a modern Hellcat-busting muscle car.
The 5.0-liter V8 Coyote engine has received a Stage 2 supercharging kit including a 3.0-liter Whipple compressor, air-to-water intercooler, a high-flow pump, and upgraded fuel injectors.
The Mustang is dyno-tuned and produces a whopping 808 horsepower and 675 lb-ft of torque – more than the new Shelby Mustang GT500, Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye, and way-over anything Camaro has to offer.
Power reaches the ground through 20-inch aluminum wheels, finished in gunmetal grey and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tires – 285/30Z front & 305/30Z rear.
Matching the increased power are upgraded Brembo brakes with 15.1-inch rotors all around. The 6-piston front and 4-piston rear calipers are painted in the corresponding Gulf orange.
The Gulf Heritage Mustang gets a lower suspension, which is further aided by functional aerodynamic carbon fiber elements including a front splitter, side sills, a rear diffuser, and spoiler.
Inside the car, you’ll be sitting in a fully-custom leather and Alcantara interior.
What’s the price of this pumped-out Mustang? Brown Lee Ford is asking $139,995 for their masterpiece.
In comparison, the new 2020 Shelby GT500 starts at $73,995. It has just 48 horsepower less, and will surely eat this thing on the track. However, if you want it fully-optioned, you’ll have to cough up six figures as well. Furthermore, it comes only as a fastback and only with a dual-clutch transmission.
You can order your Gulf Heritage Mustang in either a fastback or convertible form with a 10-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
