Earlier in October, Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] previewed some of the modified F-150 pickup trucks that will be appearing on its stand at the 2016 SEMA show.
The real star of SEMA, though, is the Mustang, and on Friday Ford gave us a taste of what to expect for the personalized pony cars galloping towards the tuning fest.
One to look out for this year will be a Mustang GT modified by SpeedKore Performance Group. This is the company that built an insane 1970 Dodge Charger with 1,650 horsepower on tap. For its Mustang GT, the company installed a supercharger to help the car’s 5.0-liter V-8 pump out 825 horsepower. The company also installed its own carbon fiber body kit, track-tuned suspension, and 20-inch wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Another potential crowd favorite will be the Mustang EcoBoost by MRT. It also boasts a supercharger upgrade, and for the chassis the design team aimed for balanced performance. The real highlight is the appearance, which includes a unique color scheme as well as a subtle carbon fiber body kit.
For fans of more classic Mustangs, there will be a 1966 Ford Shelby GT350 recreation. The build was handled by Revology Cars, which has melded modern in-car electronics with the classic body. Under the hood is the stock 5.0-liter V-8 from the latest Mustang, whose output is capped at 435 hp. Revology boasts that its creation has a better power-to-weight ratio than a Ferrari [NYSE:RACE] 360 Modena. In the cabin, there’s a digital instrument cluster, LED accents, and a custom infotainment system with navigation.
The SEMA show runs from November 1-4 in the Las Vegas Convention Center. To learn about some of the other vehicles set to appear, simply visit our dedicated hub.
