Six Modded Mustangs for 2015 and Beyond

For car enthusiasts, the Mustang brings about two distinct reactions: love or hate. It seems like every lead-footed kid has his own self-proclaimed hot rod Mustang, even if it’s a V6 automatic with an obnoxious sounding sewing machine muffler, and an oily $30 cold air intake. However, advancements in lightweight body components and more efficient forced induction have brought about a new era for Mustang, and many companies are eager to leave their own unique footprint on the brand.  Below are six modded-out Mustangs from visionary builders and companies that will turn hate into love, and love into lust. Check ’em out.

1964 Holman & Moody Build
In 1964, Ford contracted Holman and Moody to build a special platform for the National Hot Rod Association’s Factory/Experimental Class to compete in the 1965 drag racing circuit. They built 10 cars powered by 427 big blocks. This was the first contract-built Ford Mustang to ever be produced.

2015 Ford Mustang Galpin Rocket
The all new Galpin Auto Sports and Henrik Fisker-built Mustang is a mouthwatering monstrosity. Boasting 725hp and a brand new body design, it’s hard to find anything that can hold a candle to its fury. The car contains a large number of carbon fiber components and gets all of its power from a supercharged 5.0L V8. This masterpiece is custom from front to back and should be available at select dealerships soon. So what makes this Mustang stand out from previous competitors? Before now, the most powerful mustang on the market was the 2014 GT 500, it rivaled its classic grandfather putting out 662hp and 631lbft of torque.

 2015 Saleen 302 Yellow Label and Black Label Mustangs
While the Galpin Rocket is a unique creation, raw power belongs to the Saleen 302 Yellow Label. This beast puts out a whopping 730hp and 600lb/ft of torque. While contract builds are intended to be a factory style production, notice the difference in the front clip between the Galpin and Fisker build and the factory Saleen Yellow Label. Saleen also offers the Black Label Edition which comes standard comes with a 450-HP 302ci 5.0L V8, but can also be special ordered with the Yellow Label’s 730hp supercharged motor.

2015 Hennessy Mustang Black Addition
Next in line for power and prowess is the all-new 2015 Hennessy Mustang Black Addition. It’s no joke with a 5.0l V8 pushing 450-HP, but can also be special ordered with the Yellow Label’s 730hp supercharged motor. From 2011-2014 the Hennessy package peaked the ponies performance at 600hp, that’s a 117hp improvement over the new model.

 2015 Roush Mustang Stage 3
Of course, a review of Mustangs wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t include a Roush powered contender. The 2015 Roush Stage 3 Mustang has just as much to offer. It is available with the standard Coyote 5.0L V8 also present in the other performance models. It has 3 way adjustable suspensions and a 2.3l TVS supercharger. This model also 3 way adjustable coil overs.So let’s draw a comparison to the old model. Mustang made its rebound with a new body and new performance in 2005. In 2005, the Roush Mustang produced 415 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 385 foot-pounds of torque at 3,000 rpm. The phase 3 “Aluminator” engine in the 2015 Model Puts out 675hp. Like all new models, this combined with adjustable suspension and carbon fiber body components makes for a faster, lighter, and nimbler muscle car.

2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost
Nobody in the car world would have thought that Ford could recover from the disaster that was the V6 and four-cylinder mustang of the ‘80’s and 90’s. From 1984 to 1986 Ford produced a 200hp, turbocharged SVO model. So they decided to give it another go. This time, however, Ford entered the game with something completely new, a 310hp 2.3L 4cyl Ecoboost turbocharged marvel of modern technology. The 6 speed GT Ecoboost even has quicker and more accurate synchros than the 5.0 V8 GT. Not to mention it gets 22mpg city and 31mpg highway. For comparison, the 3.7V6 gets 19 city and 28 highway while the GT barely pulls off 16mpg city and 25mpg highway. It may still be a 4cyl, that’s a hard argument to back up when it still puts you back in your seat with a smile on your face.
