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.

A timeless kind of cars that keeps want to drive it all the way to thousand of miles. Mustang is the best to describe a sports car.

Mustang again! I admit it has the speed performance, but it is already old. It doesn’t make any sense to me why Ford still giving Mustang a new life. We all know that most of us wanted to end that name Mustang.

Well, as we expected from Mustang, this is one of the world’s fastest. The car looks old but the engine upgrade makes it more powerful. This is a pricey one, but I think it will be fine with the buyers since it is a Mustang.

I barely notice that Mustang is giving a new life by Ford. It’s a good idea by Ford on putting up this one, since we all know that Mustang became a topic in a society with its winning ability in races.

What really catches our attention is the cars’ pricing and the name. I agree that somehow, Mustang gave a wonderful contribution in the world of cars. Did you see their latest model? The blue angels edition which is definitely awesome.

Western Motorsports have done a great job here. They give a new life to the Ford Mustang. Imagine, you can have a Mustang for spending a $80k? For me, that’s the best gift a man can receive.

Well, the good thing about the mustang is that although it looks like a vintage car still Ford manage to offer something new about this model. If not mistaken , Mustang have a higher percentage of sale compare to the Chevy and Dodge.

There’s no obvious changes in the modification for the exterior..its still look the same. BTW, what really concern me is the engine upgrade of this car. Aside from the sportiness of the tyres, I bet it adds to the speed of this vehicle.

The timeless beauty of this car really makes it sportier and a best option in the market. For a muscle car, the 600 hp is very impressive. However, I just wonder if it still have the same problem in the corner?
