It’s an equation that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anybody.

If there ever was anybody that had proverbial aftermarket dibs on a car like the Mustang, it’s gotta be Ford’s very own racing division. So now that the Blue Oval has introduced the 2013 Mustang, Ford Racing is taking a crack at highlighting the things they could to the mighty Mustang if they got their hands on one.

For this particular example, Ford Racing opted to dress up the Mustang in the now popular "Gotta Have It Green" paint finish. Together with the unique color scheme, Ford Racing also fitted the Mustang with a new Laguna Seca adjustable front spoiler, as well as a new set of 19" Mustang Track Pack Black wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero tires with a Brembo 4-piston caliper, 14" front brake kit, and a Laguna Seca brake duct kit.

Under the hood of the Mustang, Ford Racing took the muscle car’s standard 5.0-liter Ti-VCT engine and added their very own FRPP 2.3-liter supercharger system. In addition, they also installed a new Mustang GT side exhaust system, a new sport muffler kit, a Getrag MT82 six-speed manual transmission with a Boss 302 Trans Cooler Scoop, and a Copperhead PCM system, all of which have given the Mustang a more ferocious bite than ever before.

Exact performance numbers have yet to be announced, but considering the extensive tuning job done on the muscle car, we expect those numbers to be eye-popping, to say the very least.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Ford Racing’s impressive act has rubbed off on Mustang.

The “Gotta Have It Green” is a one cool color to have. Do they apply it on other Mustangs?

If only I can have this, then I’m the happiest fan on earth.

Mustang’s my favorite since I was a child, and I’m really looking forward to having one soon.

I dislike its color, and that is all to it.

The tuning seems absolutely well, but I think I started to feel insipidity on the chosen green color of the Mustang.

I don’t know if Ford Racing has given up on it halfway through the tuning for it doesn’t really seem effective.

To be honest, I have not liked it from the start, so I have no proper words for it now that Ford Racing has done a ridiculous tuning to it.

It depends upon your liking if this is attractive or not. I noticed that although it appears to be aesthetically unfortunate, the style has been carefully designed per detail.

I’m not satisfied with its looks. I thought that they did a good job of redesigning it, but they have actually made it worse.

I can’t complain on a car’s damaged image if it’s already ugly in the first place originally. It’s fortunate that Ford’s innovations are naturally powerful so at least there is something advantageous to it.

Truthfully, I don’t even know what kind of engine tuning they have done to this. I’m just really disturbed on how its exterior has turned out; it looks sloppy and cheap. Well, it’s not like the original is impressive to begin with.
