Muscle cars seem to be prime targets for some serious tuning upgrades. Whether it’s because of loyalty to speed or to the vehicles’ history, these cars have received all kinds of modifications to boost their performance or their muscular stance. Western Motorsports knows a thing or two about these types of developments, focusing on performance parts for Ford vehicles. They even released a Ford Mustang ’Vanquishd’ in 2006 at the SEMA Show which took advantage of Ford’s most exotic engine built for Aston Martin: the 6.0 liter V12 found in the Aston Martin V12 Vanguish . That specific vehicle is now on sale for a price of $79,900.
The price tag may scare a few people off, but before anyone goes running in the opposite direction, be aware that this particular Mustang now boasts of a full 600 HP as found in the 6.0 liter V12 engine from the Vanquish. This engine is mated to a 6 speed manual Tremec T-56 transmission, custom 6-2-1 headers with Magnaflow 3" exhaust, and a special set of Baer Extreme 14" 6 piston brakes. The car also gets new KW Suspension coilovers for the front and rear.
Next to the new technical additions, Western Motorsports also hooked the Mustang up with a BASF R-M Carrizma Candy Blue paint job and a classic design glassback roof, as well as a new set of iForged wheels size 19", equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport Tires, 275/35ZR19 front and 345/30ZR19 rear. The interior gets Cobra Missano leather and Alcantra seats, an AiM Strada Dash and Datalogger, colecraft billet custom fender, and hood vents.
