Brown Lee Ford in Morrisson, Tenn., has designed a custom Mustang GT with an 808 hp V8. The dealer specializes in high performance models and is offering a 119-car run of its creation, which wears an officially-licensed Gulf paint job as homage to Ford’s 1969 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning car. The iconic blue and orange color combination has been used on special edition sports cars before, but rarely with the authentic Gulf logo.
The Gulf Heritage Mustang features a 3.0-liter supercharger and intercooler to boost the power of its 5.0-liter V8, a choice of retuned suspensions for sharper handling, carbon fiber body extensions to improve aerodynamics and add visual menace, plus a set of Brembo brakes with massive 15.1-inch rotors to stop it all on a dime.
You’ll need more than a few dimes to buy one, because the car starts at $139,995. It’s available with either a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission, and Brown Lee says it can cover a quarter-mile in just 10.7 seconds.
Car #001 will be making its debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 18, but the order book for the rest of them is already open.
