And You Can Enter to Win It
Famed custom car designer Chip Foose and Modern Muscle Design (MMD) have teamed up for a second time to build a one of a kind 2015 Ford Mustang GT. The end result, a supercharged Mustang equipped with 810 hp and sporting custom stripes, was recently unveiled at the Foose Design workshop in Huntington Beach, CA.
Like every vehicle Foose works on, his approach to the Mustang was to look at it from the eyes of its original designer. "I love what Ford has done with the car," Foose said in reference to the Mustang's redesign. "I wanted the parts to look like they could have been designed by the designers at Ford."

Foose estimates that roughly 300 hours were spent designing and building the vehicle, which is loaded with a Bama Performance tuned 5 liter V8 engine and a 2.9 liter Whipple supercharger signed by Foose.
A Magnaflow cat-back exhaust frees up exhaust flow for added horsepower and a mean exhaust tone.
To handle all that extra horsepower, a custom carbon fiber driveshaft and upgraded axles from The Driveshaft Shop were added. The Mustang also rides low to the ground with a Vogtland Sport Suspension.
Styling modifications include chin spoiler, hood scoop, rocker panels, quarter window scoops, rear spoiler, side scoops, and custom wheels and striping.
The Mustang sits on 20" Foose Design wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires, and Foose recalls test driving it with the rest of the build team back in Philadelphia. "Pirelli has been good to us," Foose laughs. "We wore out the first set of tires pretty well; we had some fun with it in the lot of AmericanMuscle and the streets of Philly."
The AmericanMuscle crew was at the unveil to announce the MMD by Foose giveaway, which the public can enter at AmericanMuscle.com until August 3, 2015.
All MMD by Foose parts will be available at AmericanMuscle.com in August 2015.
"I am so excited about the parts that MMD and I have been working on for the 2015 Mustang," said Foose. "They really enhance the factory styling while keeping that classic Mustang look."
MMD by Foose parts include:
A. MMD by Foose Chin Spoiler: $300 B. MMD by Foose Hood Scoop: $395 C. MMD by Foose Rocker Panels: $325 D. MMD by Foose Quarter Scoop: $200 E. MMD by Foose Side Scoop: $220 F. MMD by Foose Rear Spoiler: $285
This is the seventh Mustang that Foose has built, and the second with MMD.
And does the legendary hot rod designer find the vehicle hard to part with now that it's ready to be handed over to one lucky winner?
"No, because I love my green car!" Foose said in reference to his personal 2015 Mustang GT convertible. "And it's exciting to give away a car and make someone's dream come true."
The first Foose and MMD collaboration was his personal 2015 Mustang GT convertible. It was presented at the 2014 SEMA Show where it won "Best of Stand Design" by Ford.
