With SEMA less than a month from now, we're getting advance displays of the treats to be on show. Online bank MoneyLion will have three Ford Mustang GTs in Las Vegas, every one redesigned by the team of a NASCAR driver, together with an auto world luminary.
NASCAR Cup Champion Joey Logano cooperated with Vaughn Gittin Jr. on a 700-pull Mustang to begin the trio, at that point NASCAR Xfinity Series rival Austin Cindric joined forces with the folks at Tucci Hot Rods on a 725-hp build. MoneyLion supports the Team Penske Mustang Cindric drives, just as the MoneyLion 300 Xfinity race. This third Mustang comes courtesy of Logano's Team Penske partner Ryan Blaney, who worked with photographer Larry Chen, renderer specialist Khyzyl Saleem, and Galpin Motorsports. It channels the white, dark, and red attire on the #98 Ford GT40 that won the 1966 24 Hours of Daytona with Ken Miles and Lloyd Ruby driving for Shelby American.
Improving the livery are a Roush Performance front lip, Anderson Composites decklid, and spoiler, and Roush three-quarter window covers. The main thing superior to the racy livery is a racy drivetrain, the bona fides starting with a Roush supercharger to take the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 to 700 hp and 610 pound-feet of torque. ST Suspension XTA coilovers keep 20-inch Fifteen52 Podium wheels and Yokohama Advan tires adhered to the street, those wheels parading a turbofan arrangement at the front axle. Wilwood performance brakes do the stopping, a MagnaFlow Competition Series cat-back performance exhaust makes the music.
The interior's improved for hard use, highlighting a NASCAR-style steering wheel deprived of buttons, and NRG race cans strung by six-point harnesses. With an eye on the old-school supporter, a six-speed manual shifter lies between the seats.
Blaney and Chen will make a big appearance the retro pony vehicle this Sunday, October 13 at the 1000Bulbs.Com 500 race at Talladega Superspeedway. From that point forward, each of the three custom jobs will sit under the lights at SEMA. The three 'Stangs are a piece of the MoneyLion Here We Roar Sweepstakes, and will be given away after the show. From this point until Oct. 20, anybody can enter the competition at the sweepstakes site. The three winners of the three Mustangs not just get a vehicle each, they and a guest will be traveled to Ford Championship Weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway, Nov. 15-17.
