Given that the 21st century has seen a sort of return to the roots aspect for the Mustang, it was probably only a matter of time before the Boss 302 made a return. Over the last few years there's been steady and growing interest in the concept of a new-age Trans Am Special.
Jim Clarke led the charge with the creation of the 5.0 HO V8 for the Mustang in 1982 and was responsible for the continuous improvement of the 5.0 throughout the '80s. What Jim and his team accomplished is truly amazing.
Classic Car Overview
Dressed in similar fashion to many of its track-bred FR500 brethren of the recent past while harboring every bit as much brute force, this 2017 Ford Mustang GT is undeniably a world-class street machine. Its logged only 878 miles, so its just now broken in and ready to perform at its best. A professionally modified powerplant lurks under its hood, boasting an output few street legal cars can match and, from front to back, all the right components are in place to offer an outstanding driving experience to combine with the host of modern-day convenience options that are also on board. The Oxford white paint draped over its exterior has a great shine under its European clearcoat and, as youd likely expect from a car thats logged fewer than 1000 miles, is looking sharp. Its accented by painted Grabber blue striping running down its center that provides a sort of visual tie-in to the FR500 racers Ford created a few years back - especially appropriate considering this GTs outstanding power. With the usual GT rear spoiler nowhere to be found, this very special 17 wont give anyone the impression its a mild-mannered errand runner, but its deletion does result in a very muscular, distinctive look when viewed from the side. While this GT may sport a color scheme and power reminiscent of Fords FR500s, its ebony cloth interior offers a sharp appearance and all the features youd want for everyday driving. Having seen so little use, its in very clean condition and looks pretty much as it did when this Mustang emerged from the showroom. The contrasting white stitching against black surfaces gives the seating a great look and both the front buckets and rear bench seat are still at their best. Unlike its track-bound counterparts, there is plenty of comfort and convenience on hand here, including power locks and windows, cruise control, air conditioning, a backup camera, driver and passenger side airbags and an anti-theft device to help ensure this outstanding ride never leaves your possession. The AM/FM/CD stereo offers both iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, so there will be no shortage of audio options at your disposal. Modern day Mustang GTs offer a generous amount of horsepower in their original configuration, but the enhanced 5.0L Coyote V8 holding court under the hood here occupies an entirely different world. Armed with a Ford Performance Roush supercharger, its good for an otherworldly 670 horsepower (at the wheels!) - an output matched by very few street legal cars. This was no shade-tree modification either - the supercharger was professionally installed by a Ford dealer and is still under warranty. Of course, all that exhilarating power would be of far less use if preparations werent made to handle it properly, but that detail has been looked after here. A McLeod Racing Steel Flywheel and RAM Powergrip Heavy Duty clutch sit behind the engine, while a pair of Steeda IRS subframe connectors are in back to securely tie the rear end to the rest of the suspension while reinforcing an already sturdy undercarriage. The rear end not only features a 3.73 ratio thats ideal to take advantage of the 6-speed manual transmissions capabilities, but also fortified Torsen half axles rated for even more power than whats on hand here. A safety loop surrounds the 4 aluminum driveshaft as an added precaution. Four-wheel disc brakes that feature massive 15 Brembo rotors bring quick, low effort stops as this ultra-powerful Pony smokes the asphalt on its set of Shelby GT350 wheels outfitted with Pirelli tires. This 2017 Ford Mustang GT offers the chance to own an ultra-lightly used and superbly fortified version of Fords modern-day muscle car. Call today!
