Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) has confirmed that it is teaming up with Petty’s Garage, a performance house run by Richard Petty, to build up to 143 special edition of Mustang GTs. Petty Motorsports currently runs a Mustang in the NASCAR’s Xfinity series. Stage one models will feature up to one hundred cars running on a 627 hp, supercharged Ford Racing/Roush, performance supercharged 5.0- liter V8 with a MagnaFlow center exhaust and custom upholstery.
The new Stage 1 Mustang will go on sale for $62, 410 including the price of the donor car. Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) plans to offer the remaining forty-three stage 2 models for $92, 410 fitted with petty Blue trimmed three-piece 20-inch HRE wheels. Both versions of the cars will feature Ford/Roush and Petty’s Garage warranties covering add-on parts.
The manufacture of the models is to be a one-off having been revealed at last year’s SEMA auto show; Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F) having received a tremendous amount of positive feedback about a Petty’s Garage Mustang that had been displayed at the event. The first stage of the car is to feature a number of modifications with visual tweaks under the hood. A unique look of the car is to be aided by a Petty’s Garage fascia to the front with a reworked rear fascia featuring a center-exit exhaust.
Stage 1 Mustang is to be offered in a wide array of colors with a unique bodywork painted to rhyme with the in-house at Petty Garage. Ford affirms that both Stage 1 and Stage 2 version will include Petty’s Garage Wilwood big brake upgrade. The vehicles are already attracting attention with one of the 43 Stage 2 model’s having been booked by Rock n Roll legend Brian Johnson.
Orders for any of the limited editions can be placed at any of Ford Motor Company (NYSE:F)’s dealership on a first come first served basis.
