FlatBack Mustang to debut at SEMA
Last year the American automaker Ford asked the guys at CGS Motorsports to put together a very special version of the company’s Flex model called “Reflex” for the mother of all tuner car shows, SEMA. They did such a good job smoothing out Ford’s newest box car, that the blue oval has commissioned another creation from CGS for SEMA 2009, and this time it’s going to be a modified Mustang with a flat black feel.
Even if the show is still a few months away, it is evident by the images that have made their way onto the internet that the crew at CGS are already working on the flat black fast back play on words for SEMA. The project will be called Flatback and will feature a pair of glossy hockey stripes on top of the matte bodywork. Everything from the hood scoops up front to the rear window deletes in the back, this appears to be another smooth show winning design that gives the 2010 Mustang a stealth appeal.
CGS Motorsports will build the customized pony car that was designed by Sean Smith of SS Designs. While CGS will put in the man hours, companies like 3M and BASF will be supplying the custom paint that will cover the Roush body kit. The modified high performance mustang will wear a set of one-off Colorado Custom wheels wrapped in Pirelli Tires connected to the chassis by a KW coil over suspension. Inside, the driver will sit comfortably in a custom Recaro racing seat which will be necessary to stay in place when the blower from Whipple Superchargers goes full tilt. Bringing everything to a halt will be a big brake kit from Baer Brakes. Judging from what CGS did with last year’s rendering, there is no doubt that Fastback will not dissapoint.
