The MAHLE Aftermarket North America YouTube Channel has posted the first of a number of videos showing the build process of the MAHLE Ford Mustang at Petty’s Garage. The Mustang is the grand prize in the MAHLE “Drive with the Original” Technician Promotion, which you might have read about recently – we ran an article on it here on RacingJunk!
The customized, twin-turbo, 1,000 HP MAHLE Mustang is slated to go to a lucky technician at the 2017 Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas, taking place Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, 2017. The “Drive with the Original” promotion runs until Oct. 1, 2017.
“We wanted to have a grand prize in the ‘Drive with the Original’ Promotion unlike anything the aftermarket has seen,” said Jon Douglas, President of MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “We think technicians will enjoy seeing how the Petty’s Garage craftsmen put this dream ride together – a ride that could be theirs if they are lucky!”
The following videos will document the engine build, installation of custom Petty’s Garage suspension pieces and interior, application of a custom paint job and body panels and, finally, dyno testing the car delivering it to the MAHLE Aftermarket team.
