Classic Car Overview
Its not that often that we get to experience that new car smell here in our showroom, after all, brand new cars dont exactly put the classic in Streetside Classics. But every once in a while, a late-model car comes along thats so darn impressive its an instant classic. This 2018 Ford Mustang Track King was built by the pros at Pettys Garage specifically to steal the show at SEMA, and it highlights The Kings recent line of limited-edition, late-model productions that are giving builders like Roush, Saleen, and Hennessey a run for their money. Built from a Champions mold, this race-themed beauty from the mind of Richard Petty is dressed to impress and packing a unique 2.3L EcoBoost motor fitted with a 62mm turbocharger that can register a staggering 700+ base horsepower. And with only 626 miles on the clock, this exclusive Pony is basically still in the wrapper, ready to break out. One of the best reasons to own a special edition car like this is that it instantly sticks out from the crowd. It starts with the unique BASF R-M Track King Ghost Silver finish contrasted with Petty Blue (what else?) and light silver accents throughout the body. The custom build used the dynamic curves of the modern 6th generation Mustang as the foundation of the build, and coupled that already dramatic styling with the addition of a hand-crafted wide-body kit and Arrow Composites carbon fiber side skirts, front splitter, and Pettys Garage rear spoiler to match. Cervinis Auto Designs provided the custom Pettys Garage grille inserts and rear fascia, and Pettys Garage acid-etched rear windows, a custom windshield banner, and Petty Blue-painted Brembo brake calipers were added for further pop. The result is a Mustang with unmatched curb appeal, and you can see how thoughtful the designers were over every single inch of this amazing car. Ever since it dropped jaws at SEMA, this beauty has only been shown and barely driven, so everything is factory fresh with a miniscule 626 actual miles on the clock. Yes, its that fresh! Inside is a loaded GT premium Mustang interior that remains so new and unblemished that it smells like the factory floor. Katzkin black leather with suede inserts looks and feels like it belongs in an exotic supercar with a six-figure price tag, and the Petty Blue stitching reminds everyone that this is The Kings domain. Mr. Pettys trademark continues on quite literally with his genuine signature on the dash, the Pettys Garage logo in the headrests, floor mats, and illuminated door sills, and the custom T/K engraved plaque above the glove compartment. Beyond all the true collectors items, this Mustang is also desirable because it has all the modern amenities you could want - power windows/locks/mirrors/seats, cruise control, keyless entry & ignition, electric rear defogger, dual zone automatic climate control system, and heated & cooled leather seats just to name a few. The touchscreen infotainment system means you not only get a terrific sounding Shaker AM/FM/Satellite/AUX stereo, but it also has plenty of useful features like navigation, Bluetooth, and a back-up camera. Theres even voice-activated navigation, although be sure to speak up over the roar of the engine. Plus, the power steering can be adjusted between touring and performance driving right from the cockpit, and the contoured leather seats mean you can hit the corners as aggressively as you please. A modern machine also means modern safety with dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes, so go ahead and stand on it with the confidence of Fords top-of-the-line safety standards. Out back the seats were deleted to reduce weight, and the trunk is very spacious, so this Mustang is road trip ready. Fords EcoBoost 4-cylinder motor has been a revelation for the brand, and it provides great performance and unbelievable efficiency in its stock configuration. But this isnt some Focus rental car here, this is a Mustang with Richard Pettys legendary name on it, so whatevers under the hood better be powerful, regardless of displacement. If someone wouldve told me 10-15 years ago that a tiny 2.3L 4-cylinder could be calibrated to output 700+ horsepower, I wouldve laughed them off as crazy. But lo and behold, the addition of a Precision Turbo 62mm snail with an upgraded turbocharger kit and a custom Pettys Garage calibration brings the little 4-banger to life with enough power to compete with all the big boys on the road. Not only is the motor powerful, its incredibly dependable and fuel-efficient too, and can be serviced by an Ford dealer across the world. A Petty-built high-performance 6-speed automatic transmission sits behind the engine and shifts smoothly, while Ridetech fully adjustable front and rear coilovers, Ford Performance axles, Pettys Garage front and rear swaybars, and Pettys Garage upgraded polyurethane cradle bushings are just a small sample of the long list of options the sport suspension shows off underneath. The soundtrack is amazing thanks to a custom center-exit Magnaflow exhaust that sounds terrific up and down the throttle. A Brembo Gran Turismo Big Brake upgrade includes power 4-wheel disc brakes with 6-piston front and 4-piston rear rotors that bring quick, low effort stops as this ultra-powerful Pony smokes the asphalt on its set of 20-inch Forgeline Carbon forged wheels outfitted with 275/35/20 front and 315/35/20 Continental ExtremeContact Sport tires. This very special 2018 Ford Mustang Pettys Garage Track King offers the chance to own a like-new and superbly fortified version of one of Fords top modern-day muscle cars. Call today!
