What started off as a standard 2016 Ford Mustang GT with a naturally aspirated V8 is now a supercharged beast with the looks to match its newly gained pony power. For starters, its 5.0-litre engine churns a massive 727 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque, thanks to Roush Performance's R2300 TVS kit bumping output by almost 300 hp and 210 lb-ft over a stock GT-spec ‘Stang.
And after slapping on a supercharger, Roush handed over the car to Carlex Design to give it a highly personalised makeover that better reflected the owner’s style and preferences.
The gallery below shows it in all its glory: the brief was to go with a two-tone red and white combo both inside and out, with the car’s logo dressed in the American flag. While the design certainly isn’t for everyone, the fit and finish should be; Carlex Design has a great reputation over in the States. The striking red leather upholstery applied to the seats, door panels, and the dashboard is adorned by a quilted tubular pattern created specifically for this Mustang GT to make it stand out furthermore.
The dash features a handmade mustang motif on the passenger’s side and it’s also noticeable on the floor mats. The rather extravagant interior cabin is home to white inserts and piping here and there to spice things up, while the steering wheel clad in leather adopts a partially monochrome appearance to contrast the lively theme.
There’s no word on price, but surely this sort of work doesn’t come cheap given the numerous changes this particular 2016 Ford Mustang GT has gone through. For what it’s worth, we do know the owner did pay about $7,799 (around £6,300) for the Roush supercharger kit as per the price listed on the tuner’s site.
