NASCAR legend Richard Petty launched Petty’s Garage in 2008. Since then, the high-performance speed shop out of North Carolina has been a staple at the SEMA Auto Show. That annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas appears set to continue at the 2014 running of the year’s biggest aftermarket auto show as Petty’s Garage brings its latest tuning project based on the Ford Mustang to Sin City.

Like the shop’s past projects, the 2015 Mustang will head to SEMA packed with plenty of upgrades added to the muscle car. Details are still scant at this point, but you can at least expect it to carry an extreme body kit, a new set of wheels and tires, a reworked interior, and an upgraded engine.

If you’re looking at a baseline for comparison’s sake, check out the 2012 Ford Mustang Petty’s Garage brought to the 2011 SEMA Auto Show. That bad-boy came with a body kit, an updated interior, a reinforced suspension, and a Whipple supercharger that increased the Mustang’s output to a staggering 650 horsepower.

You can be certain that the Petty’s Garage paid equal, if not more attention to its latest project for the 2015 Mustang. The fact that this particular Mustang will soon be auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson only adds to our growing belief.

Proceeds of said auction will benefit Victory Junction, a charitable program dedicated to assisting chronically ill children attend summer camp.

Ford Mustang By Petty’s Garage in detail

Except for the hood, the roof, and the body pillars, this Mustang is bathing in that dynamic blue body.

Like I said, Ford and Petty’s Garage remain tight-lipped on details about its new Signature Series program for the Mustang, but Ford did release a couple of teaser photos of the vehicle. Except for the hood, the roof, and the body pillars, this Mustang is bathing in a dynamic "Electric Blue" body. Did you at least expect anything less from a man who made blue his color-of-choice during his long and illustrious career in NASCAR?

Another detail about this particular Mustang is that it has a Roush supercharged, V-8 engine. Numbers weren’t released but it’s reasonable to expect that the Mustang at least has Roush’s Stage 1 kit, which adds another 155 horsepower and 115 pound-feet of torque to the Mustang’s 5.0-liter, V-8 engine that produces 435 horsepower, 390 pound-feet of torque as standard.

That Stage 1 kit should bring the output up to an impressive 575 horsepower and 505 pound-feet of torque.

Fortunately, we won't have to wait too long to find out the nitty gritty details.

And what if there’s a Stage 3 kit under that hood? Well, expect the output numbers to jump even further to 675 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque.

Remember, I’m merely speculating here because Ford and Petty’s Garage haven’t released the actual numbers yet. Who knows, maybe this Mustang has more than 700 horsepower under its hood? I’m certainly not throwing out that possibility, and quite frankly, neither should you.

Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long to find out the details on this Stang. The 2014 SEMA Auto Show takes place from November 4 to 7, 2014 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
