Classic car tuning is a very controversial topic. Some find it extremely cool to equip classic automobiles with a lot of horsepower and a sporty look, while others just shake their heads and think that a classic should be left in its original condition. The 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1, which was built by the tuning manufacturer Classic Recreations in close cooperation as part of an exclusive deal with Ford, offers 1000 good reasons for classic tuning. Further legendary Mustang models such as the Boss 429 and Boss 302 will be tuned by Classic Recreations in the future.
Brute performance thanks to biturbo conversion.
The construction of the car, which now generates 8 hp with the help of a current Coyote V1000, which is forcibly ventilated with two turbochargers and puts its power on the road with the help of a six-speed manual transmission, began with the restoration of an original 1969 Ford Mustang Mach 1 body before the engine finally found a new home in this vehicle. Other changes include electric power steering, 18-inch rims with Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires and a six-piston sports brake system with perforated discs. This means that the Ford Mustang, which was christened “Hitman”, is well equipped for today's road traffic, and above all it would be very interesting to know what time it can burn into the asphalt on the quarter mile. Information on performance and top speed has not yet been announced, but it can be assumed that the 1000 hp will keep what it promises on paper.
Classic meets modern in the interior.
While the interior has been left in the classic style, modern technology has also found its way in, which not only pampers the passengers with engine sound, but also allows them to enjoy the sound of a JVC system with tweeters, speakers and a subwoofer. Also comes through the five-point belts, the speedometer unit, which reaches up to 200 miles per hour (+322 km / h), and the Roll cage also a certain racing feeling. Unfortunately, it is not possible to like the Mustang with modern security features ESP and to equip airbags and helpful driver assistance systems are of course in vain in such an automobile.
For whom is such a classic with 1000 PS intended?
Such a classic is intended for all vintage car enthusiasts who do not want to do without power in the car. Of course, you can also cruise comfortably on the country road with this PS monster and just look at the landscape and enjoy the great engine sound of the Coyote V8. But as soon as you don't feel like driving along comfortably, you can let the pig out with the 1000 horses of the tuned pony car. Thus, this Mustang is something for die-hard people who enjoy original and purist driving and who can do without various bells and whistles that are built into modern cars as standard.
