Richard Petty - better known for his incredible results in NASCAR - launched "Petty’s Garage" back in 2008, a high performance speed shop that produces vehicle such as the Signature Series based on the 2010 Dodge Challenger. This vehicle made an appearance in Jay Leno’s Garage where the talk show host had his way with it, against “The King’s” orders, but we’re thinking he may regret his little rebellion if Petty decides to not let him near his latest creation. Petty’s entry into the 2011 SEMA Auto Show is a new Signature Series based on a Ford Mustang which will be displayed at the BASF booth at the show.
As with any prominent tuning figure, Petty has released little to no details on his latest creation, but the images that were released show an extreme body kit that immediately stands out, as does that electric blue paint job. The bump on the hood hides a Whipple supercharger that will increase the total output to an impressive 650 HP. The car will also be equipped with an upgraded suspension system, bigger brakes, and an updated interior.
It’s a good thing SEMA is just a few days away because the wait is excruciating!
