Do you do that? We can actually answer this question ourselves with a clear "NO". Since this vehicle is only a virtual copy, we are really relaxed and would like to introduce you to our 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Fastback (Eleanor). A vehicle that should cost at least € 200.000 in its well-maintained series condition. There is even one right now Ford Shelby GT500 * Eleanor * Super Snake with 770 PS for whopping 999.999 Euro in the net. Crazy… Our copy, incidentally, in cooperation with the graphic artist Rotislav Prokop (Artstation) is particularly characterized by the extensive widebody kit. We designed the body kit so that it is seamlessly integrated into the body and not with exposed screw connections a'la Liberty Walk was attached.

The front mask was also changed and got a new grille. The often seen additional headlights in the middle we have completely omitted. There was a particularly large spoiler lip including splinters and a lot of new shows also at the rear. Here, the widenings for the fenders open into a clean tailgate and further exists the central rear center part which also acts as a rear apron. In contrast to the series but our variant has a centrally located sports exhaust system with large tailpipe. Also darkened taillights and a black Shelby emblem in the middle.

We only made the round reversing lights disappear. Many small details such as the side gills, the darkened windows or the cool rearview mirrors have also grown on our dung. And we changed the bonnet really hard. This is permanently open and shows in the style of "Variant 2 of the HOONICORN RTR Ford Mustang“Part of the engine. While Ken Block's 1.400 PS bullet is particularly the turbocharger, our Mustang has a large sports air filter on the right and left. But we also rely on a turbo conversion and certify that the V8 BigBlock under the hood has at least 1.000 hp. And so that this power can also be adequately implemented, a significantly larger wheel set was of course required. We have decided on a glossy black painted rim from the shelf of Vossen Wheels.

It is special, in the format 20 inches, the VFS1 which we already at one Chevrolet Camaro SS or a 2015er Mustang have seen. And of course, the wheelset only sits so precisely in the wheel arch due to a significant lowering. This lowering could be achieved either with an Airride air suspension or with a special coilover suspension. Finally, the entire body was still in a shiny gray (similar to standard gray) and should not be missing the classic Shelby war paint in black on the entire vehicle. Surely this conversion would hardly be responsible for an original, but if you take a replica for it, would it be worth a try? We wish you a lot of fun watching the pictures and the video.
