Ford Mustang Gets Stung By A Yellow Jacket
Project Between Ford and Vortech Superchargers for SEMA
SEMA is just around the corner and automakers are beginning to announce what they will have in store. Yesterday, Ford revealed a Mustang with a bit of a sting. Meet the Project Yellow Jacket Mustang: created by Ford and Vortech Superchargers, the Yellow Jacket is a stunner.
“As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang. We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance,” said Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group.
The Project Yellow Jacket Mustang starts with a 3D Carbon Boy Racer body kit, a carbon fiber cowl-induction hood, iForged Icon wheels, and a bright yellow paint job. Power comes from a 5.0L V8 with a Vortech V-3 Si supercharging system that makes 605 horsepower and 473 pound-feet of torque. Not bad when you consider the base 5.0L V8 produces 420 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.
Other changes include a tuned suspension, six-piston brakes from Baer, and a custom Webasto electronic sunroof.
