You are looking for an alternative to Mustang Shelby GT500? Either because it should be a number more exclusive, or because the strictly limited GT500 is simply not available? If possible, the pony car should also be included have more power and show a touch more understatement? Then the ultimate alternative is the Clive Sutton CS850GT with 5,0 liter V8. The British tuner has the Mustang with a good portion Magic dust sprinkled and donated him a specially adapted one Whipple compressor, there was a powerful one Intercooler, one adapted to the increase in performance Quad Active XFORCE exhaust system, a special one Chiptuning and lots of other coordinated components. The results of the efforts are incredible 859 HP / 632 kW and 902 Nm torque. And the brutal increase in performance of the 8-cylinder even comes by means of briefly graduated Six-speed manual to the rear wheels.
Ford Mustang GT as CS850GT
The manual transmission is a surprise compared to the Shelby GT500 with Tremec seven-speed double clutch automatic. It may be doubted whether the manual transmission is faster or even more effective, but it definitely ensures more driving fun in the sense of a certain purism.
And by the way, Clive Sutton's Mustang is also 89 hp and 55 Nm stronger than the counterpart with the Cobra in the grille. So far there is no information about the acceleration of the CS850GT, but since the GT500 sprints to country road speed in just 3,5 seconds, we attest a similar value to the competitor from London. And that goes for them too quarter milewhich should probably be completed in under 11 seconds. And optically, it doesn't have to hide behind the GT500. Even if he seems a tad tamer. However, this does not have to be a negative aspect.
forged 20 inch Vossen rims
The CS850GT stands on bespoke 20 inch Vossen rims, he has a revised one front section based on the GT500 with LED lights and next to the Carbon front spoiler come another powerful one Carbon rear diffuser, side skirts as well as a fixed one Carbon rear wing (optional) used. And something has also happened in the cabin. Here the Mustang shows itself with a red one Billet starter button in the dashboard, one Aluminum golf ball gear lever, athletic Recaro bucket seats, there is a newly padded one Sutton performance sports steering wheel and optionally the CS850GT can also be upgraded with a new one Leather and Alcantara upholstery including contrast stitching and different Carbon trim elements to order. Incidentally, a newly coordinated one is always included landing gear with improved front and rear stabilizers.
performance-enhanced DBA braking system
And there are additional ones too Bracing as well as new components for the subframe to achieve even greater rigidity. The performance changes are rounded off with a performance-enhanced one DBA Brembo braking system with distinctive saddles in light blue and slotted brake discs. As is so often the case, the only catch is the price. As a complete package, this is at least £ 115.000 and thus a good 134.000 euros. Compared to the Shelby GT500, which starts on the other side of the Atlantic with an MSRP of 61.000 euros, this is of course an extra charge hard to justify.
