PostHeaderIcon New Ford Mustang Bullitt Is Mean and Green in Detroit

Rumored to make a comeback for many years now, the Ford Mustang Bullitt returns in its third iteration at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Based on the facelifted version of the sixth-generation Mustang, the new Bullitt arrives just in time for the movies’ 50th anniversary. Launched almost a half-century after Steve McQueen created the coolest car chase in movie history, the new Bullitt came to Cobo Center alongside the original car from 1968.

Showcased in a metallic dark green color that mimics the shade of the original model, the new Bullitt follows in the footsteps of its fourth- and fifth-generation-based predecessor, sporting an understated look, a number of exclusive features, and a retuned drivetrain. On the outside, it gets subtle chrome accents around the grille and front windows, a unique black grille, and the obligatory Torque Thrust wheels, this time around in 19-inch size. A set of red Brembo calipers completes the look, but it also gets the aerodynamic extras that come with the Performance Package. Color options are limited to the classic Dark Highland Green and Shadow Black.

Continue reading for the full story.

Understated but More Powerful


“The standard seats come from the Mustang GT, but owners can upgrade to the optional leather Recaro units”

The cabin is equally understated, with upgrades including the 1960s-inspired white cue ball shift knob and green accent stitching on the seats. The standard seats come from the Mustang GT, but owners can upgrade to the optional leather-wrapped Recaro sports units. The 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster, which was launched with the facelift, features a unique Bullitt welcome screen that starts in green with an image of the car instead of the pony. A heated leather steering wheel is included as standard.

Additionally, Ford offers an optional Bullitt Electronics Package that includes navigation, driver memory seats and mirrors, upgraded sound system, and Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert.

“Output has been increased compared to the standard 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of the Mustang GT”

Under the vented green hood lurks the familiar 5.0-liter V-8 “Coyote” engine, but output has been increased compared to the standard 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of the Mustang GT. Specific figures aren’t yet available, but Ford says the new Bullitt will benefit from at least 475 horses and 420 pound-feet of twist. Expect it to hit 60 mph a tenth-second than the regular GT, so we could be looking at a 3.8-second benchmark. Top speed is also higher, up to 163 mph from the standard 155 mph.

The Bullitt comes with a manual transmission as standard, but it features a number of drivetrain upgrades on top for the revised engine. It sports an active valve performance exhaust with new Black NitroPlate tips retuned for signature burble, a new Open Air Induction system, and an intake manifold from the Shelby GT350. The optional MagneRide semi-active suspension system optimizes driving performance.

The new Mustang Bullitt is due to hit showrooms this summer, but pricing information is not yet available. We should know more as we review the pony car later this week.

PostHeaderIcon Video of the Day: Watch Hennessey Turn a Stock 2018 Chevy Camaro ZL1 into the Exorcist!

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Exorcist came into our lives in April 2017. It packed ungodly amounts of power under its hood, allowing it to hit speeds that the devil himself would be proud of. The sinful beast comes to us by way of Hennessey. To give us an idea of how it came to life, the American tuner has released a time-lapse video chronicling the creation of the Exorcist from its not-so-humble Camaro ZL1 roots.

To be clear, the Camaro ZL1 is potent in it of itself. It comes with a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that pumps out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a tick over three seconds before hitting a top speed of 186 mph. Impressive, right?

Apparently, Hennessey shrugged its shoulders at the Camaro ZL1’s capabilities. Knowing it had something better to offer, the tuner decided to swap in a bigger supercharger compared to the stock unit. On top of that, Hennessey also installed a new camshaft, added long-tube headers, freed up the flow of air through the engine, and recalibrate the engine with some fancy computer work. The result is a car that saw its output increase to a demented 1,000 horsepower.

Turning a Camaro ZL1 into the Exorcist obviously takes time. That doesn’t appear to be the case in the time-lapse video, but judging by how many people came in and out of the shot and how many times the car was lifted, brought back to the ground, lifted again, and brought back down again, it’s safe to assume that the engineers over at Hennessey had their work cut out for them.

It all ends well, though, because the Camaro ZL1 Exorcist is madness personified.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit

Less than 24 hours ago it was discovered that Ford’s service information included a shot of what appeared to be a supercharged 5.2-liter as part of a wiring diagram. Well, once you dig around, it turns out Ford has already written the book on the GT500, so consider this as confirmation: It’s coming. And, it may be coming sooner than you think. Ford has an off-site event planned just prior to the kick off of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next month, and the GT500 could very well stretch its wheels in the public eye for the very first time. Want to learn about all of this new information? Keep reading to see it all for yourself.

The Previously Seen Diagram


Supercharged Engine in Ford Wiring Diagrams Could be Proof of a Mustang GT500 with a DCT Transmission!!! - image 754628

As mentioned in our previous article, this is clearly the supercharged 5.2. It has the floating throttle position sensor due to a different design, a similar belt routing to the 3.6-liter, a cobra on the intake manifold, and there’s even a different flywheel with a unique-looking flexplate. However, this is just the tip of the GT500 Iceberg – You can read more about this initial leak, or keep reading to find out about top speed.

GT500 Top Speed Could Exceed the 200 MPH Barrier


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754871

As you dig around Ford’s service information, it becomes painfully evident that the GT500 has been in the works and that Ford has already updated most of its service information to include it. Case in point – This snippet of the speedometer verification command structure. Take a look at that final entry: 100% at 200 mph. That sounds pretty promising, but look at the indication range: 194 -214 mph! Holy Toledo – we’re talking about some serious muscle from the Shelby. And as you might expect, the GT500 will also have its own special brake setup:

Ceramic Brakes With Wear Indicators


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754869

But, that’s far from all, and it gets even more exciting. Check out this information on the new drive modes:

GT500 Drag Strip and Launch Control Drive Models


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754870

You see that right, folks. The GT500 will trade off the Snow\Wet and Track drive modes in place of a fresh setup that includes “Drag Strip” and “Launch Control.” So, to put it simply, Ford is building its answer to the Dodge Hellcats (and maybe the Demon?) as well as the upcoming C8 Vette too. The plus side to the GT500, however, is it has that Magride suspension, so guess what? It’ll be able to corner with the best of them too.

Technology and Other Bits


Ford Shelby GT500 to Get Ceramic Brakes, Bespoke Drive Modes, and 200+ MPH Top Speed – Could Debut in Detroit - image 754872

Ok, so Ford has a habit of going all out for GT models, no doubt, but this time around, it’s even giving the GT500 its own HUD. Now, the HUD hasn’t actually be confirmed yet, but service information shows it in the network message chart and tells us that there will be a shift point light. It will probably also display other important information like tach information and oil temperature. We’ve also learned that it will idle at 900 rpm – just a hair faster than that of the GT. Finally, Ford’s Vin decoder shows a Vin “Z” listed as a 5.2-liter, DOHC, Ti-VCT, Supercharged, V-8. Unfortunately, it won’t get the soul that is the flat plane crank, but you’re probably not going to care because this is going to be THE car of 2018, no doubt.

What do you guys think of all this information so far? Let us know in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Supercharged Engine in Ford Wiring Diagrams Could be Proof of a Mustang GT500 with a DCT Transmission!!!

Information leaks seem to be commonplace today, and you couldn’t be blamed if you didn’t know which was worse: Leaks from the auto industry or leaks from the U.S. Government. On the plus side, however, the leaks from the auto industry give us a little glimmer of hope and, in this case, it’s hope that a GT500 isn’t only in the works but so far on its way into production that its engine is showing up in wiring diagrams already. That’s right, the guys over at Mustang6G have stumbled upon a supercharged 5.2-liter engine that’s even sporting the Corba logo right on top. This has to be, without a doubt, the engine for the GT500. You can add that to previous leaks as well, including an image of the cobra-baring intake manifold and an internal document about engine oil requirements.

Want to know more? Check out our little breakdown of this latest leak:

“The apparent flex plate is a nod to the potential for an automatic transmission, or in this case, we’re probably looking at a dual-clutch unit – maybe the seven-speed”

It’s pretty clear that someone over at Ford really screwed up. Perhaps this is why the golden rule is to let writers write and designers design? Either way, someone snagged the wrong image and used it for this wiring diagram, and it’s clearly evident in a few different places. First off, you can, plain as day, make out the supercharger pulley. There’s also the Cobra logo, and the fact that the throttle position sensor is non-existent yet the wiring is still in place. The big thing here, however, is that the flywheel is completely different than that of the GT500. The engine is clearly derived from it, but that flywheel is different. The apparent flex plate is a nod to the potential for an automatic transmission, or in this case, we’re probably looking at a dual-clutch unit – maybe the seven-speed. And, for what it’s worth, that flexplate doesn’t match up with the 5.0-liter, so it’s not bolted to that 10-speed auto Ford is boasting these days either.

“The GT500 will likely use a sprung primary flywheel which, in any case, means that the GT500 will certainly be special – it will be a first for the GT”

With that in mind, the GT350 does have a primary/secondary flywheel design. It has the same three notches seen in the image above and a similar layout of eight bolt holes. The problem is, the GT350 has a secondary flywheel which isn’t seen in this image, ultimately leading to the conclusion that the Tremec seven-speed may be the transmission of choice. If so, the GT500 will likely use a sprung primary flywheel which, in any case, means that the GT500 will certainly be special – it will be a first for the GT. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Hennessey Do 174 MPH in a Hellcat Hauling A Christmas Tree!

Adding to its long list of wild stunts, Hennessey Performance decided to strap a Christmas tree to the roof of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody to see just how fast the car could run. Needless to say, the Hellcat comes perfectly equipped for speed. Its 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 makes an astounding 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque that’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

As a refresher, the Widebody version of the Challenger Hellcat has a wider track than the standard car, which allows for fatter tires. Naturally, wider tires offer better traction – something that’s desperately needed with the Hellcat’s power levels.

John Hennessey, CEO of his tuning and performance company, took the Challenger Hellcat Widebody to Continental Tire’s test track for some top speed trails, tree and all. The baseline run without the tree but with the suction cup-mounted roof rack posted a top speed of 177 mph. That means the Hellcat Wideboy only lost three mph off its top speed with a live tree strapped to its hood. That’s impressive.

PostHeaderIcon Christmas Greetings From Hennessey and a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody

Christmas day is literally three days away, and if you haven’t set up your Christmas trees yet, then you’re in a lot of trouble. Fortunately, there are ways to get a tree up and standing in your living rooms in no time. You can buy a plastic one in Walmart and set that one up, or you can go to a Lowe’s and get a natural one. If you decide on doing the latter, John Hennessey of Hennessey Performance has a suggestion on how to buy one quickly and transport it at 174 mph.

Of course, you’re going to need a fast car to do it, and that’s exactly the point of this video from the American tuning company. Part of the demonstration involves mounting temporary roof rails on the roof of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody. Once the rails are mounted, the next step is to strap the actual tree on it and head to Continental Tires’ test track in Texas to see how fast the Challenger Hellcat Widebody can go while transporting a holiday tree.

The muscle car eventually hits 174 mph, an impressive figure considering the cargo it’s carrying. It’s also just three mph slower than the top speed Hennessey achieved on the Challenger Hellcat Widebody minus the rails and the tree. And if blasting along a test track at that speed isn’t enough, Hennessey decides to throw in a bit of tire smoke into the proceedings because, well, it wanted to.

If this is Hennessey’s way of greeting us “Merry Christmas,” then I suppose it did it the only way it knows how. Think of a Christmas theme, bring in a 707-horsepower Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody, add a gimmick, and blast off on a clear stretch of road.

PostHeaderIcon Some Crazy Colorado Dealership Thinks Someone Will Pay $176,000 for a Dodge Demon

Charging above MSRP price is a common occurrence in the auto industry. It’s especially true for cars with high demand and limited supply. The Dodge Challenger Demon fits this bill. It’s limited to just 3,000 units with each model carrying a sticker price that starts at $84,995. It’s normal to charge extra for it, but one dealership seems to have taken it a little too far by listing a Demon for the rather insane price of $176,398.

“One dealership seems to have taken it a little too far by listing a Demon for the rather insane price of $176,398”

Used car dealership Custom Cars West looks like it’s feeling itself a bit here. It’s one thing to charge an extra $20,000 for a car like the Challenger Demon. Even though I think that’s still excessive, I can understand the reason given the car’s popularity. But $176,398? Not only is it absurd, it’s borderline greedy.

That said, I actually don’t blame the dealership for asking that much for the muscle car. It may not be an upstanding business practice, but if somebody is willing to pay that much for the muscle car, then that’s more money for the dealership. You gotta do what you gotta do to put food on the table, right?


Some Crazy Colorado Dealership Thinks Someone Will Pay $176,000 for a Dodge Demon - image 729181

If somebody does decide to take up Custom Cars West’s price for the car, they’re looking at a 707-horsepower beast that’s sporting a B5 Blue Pearl paint job. That color isn’t part of Dodge’s catalog, so that was probably added after-the-fact. The interior also has helpings of black leather. There are no photos showing it, so I suppose we’ll have to take the dealership’s word for it.

Personally, I wouldn’t buy this Demon for that price, but I won’t be surprised if someone else does. As much as I like the muscle car, it’s not worth $176,398. At that price, I’d rather buy a Porsche 911 Turbo S.

PostHeaderIcon Do These Leaked Images Prove a New Shelby GT500 Mustang is on the Way?

Up until now, it was largely unknown whether or not there would be a Shelby GT500 or a Bullitt Mustang derived from the sixth-gen Mustang – especially considering the fact that it just went through a major facelift for 2018. Rumors have been flying like pans from a scorned wife, but nothing official. And, there’s still nothing official, but the guys over at Mustang6G forums have posted a couple of intriguing images that point to the GT500 being a near certainty. We’re talking about a supercharger for the 5.2-liter with a Cobra emblem on it and a pair of massive rotors with Brembo calipers. Sure, security over there must suck, but the good news for us is that it looks like a GT500 is in the works. And, it could debut real soon, right next to the new Bullitt Mustang…. Say what? That’s right… two icons could very well make their return with the next few months. Keep reading to learn more.

At this point, all we’ve seen are leaked, authentic-looking images of a supercharged and a massive brake rotor. But, there’s a little more to it than that. Take a closer look at the brake rotor. Do you see the stamps on the hub? It says KR3V and, as one forum member pointed out based on the GT350 rotor codes, K would point to 2019, R3 means Mustang, and V means specialty vehicle engineering. Furthermore, there’s also an easter egg image floating around, seen below, that gives us some info than could stand for something more. See, the odometer on the image below? It reads 1121.8 or 1-12-18, which is a day before the Detroit Auto Show kicks off and an ideal debut time for a Shelby (or Bullitt Mustang) Look at the main odo – it reads 1964.5, and I really hope we don’t have to explain that numbering to you. What about that time? The 289 miles to empty and the 55 mph speed? There’s a lot more going on here than meets the eye, but the important part is the miles, pointing to a Detroit debut and something we’re really looking forward to. Or, maybe we’re wrong…

A New Bullitt Mustang


Was a Next-Gen Ford Mustang Bullitt Caught Playing in Chicago? - image 750720

At this point, you’ve probably seen those weird images of a potential Bullitt Mustang doing commercial filming in Chicago. Everybody has covered it. Hell, we’ve covered it twice. That thing is now all but confirmed by Ford as the latest images pretty much give it away. Does that mean that we’ll see a new Bullitt Mustang show up next to a Shelby GT500 at the Detroit Auto Show? Maybe the GT500 debuts there and the Bullitt debuts at the super bowl…. Now that would be something, right?

Final Thoughts


2019 Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang - image 718145

Oh man, two special Mustangs in one year? Talk about amazing. But, maybe it won’t happen and is all vaporware mixed in with some crazy coincidences. Either way, it’s a good time to be alive, and performance cars are really making a comeback. I can’t help but mention that line after reading it on Mustang6G, as the member post made a very good point. Look at all of the cars we have for the taking… The Dodge Charger and Challenger Hellcats with crazy Hemi engines, the Dodge Demon, and let’s not forget the new Focus RS and the fact that the Civic Si has finally found its way to American shores. The point is, my friends, that while SUVs are running rampant and filling our streets, there’s still a performance car our there for just about anyone whether you want crazy power and RWD, a hot hatch with AWD, or a FWD performer like the Civic SI. It’s only fitting that Ford come correct with a car like the GT500 and it’s about damn time we get another Bullitt, don’t you think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon More Shots of a new Bullitt Mustang Provide Confirmation of its Existence

There’s been a lot of whispers surrounding a potential return of the “Bullitt” name to the Ford Mustang catalog. We first caught wind of this after seeing a window sticker back in October of what looked like a Bullitt-spec ‘Stang. That was followed by photos shared by one of the forum goers at Mustang6G last week of a car that looked eerily like a Bullitt Mustang, right down to the famous Dark Highland Green (DHG body finish. Not content with these sightings, eagle-eyed observers have once again captured a peculiar Mustang on the road, and from the looks of things, this car could very well be the 2018 Ford Bullitt Mustang.


More Shots of a new Bullitt Mustang Provide Confirmation of its Existence - image 750720
“The latest batch of spy photos taken of the car in driving around Chicago is the first definitive look we get of the next Bullitt Mustang”

I have to apologize for being a little too excited about this development. It’s been nine years since Ford launched the first Bullitt version of the iconic muscle car so you can understand why this is such a big deal for some people, especially those who have a life-long lovefest with anything related to Steve McQueen. While I don’t count myself in that group, I understand the significance of a Bullitt Mustang. It’s only been done once in the muscle car’s history, and it’s almost been a decade since we last saw it.

The latest batch of spy photos taken of the car in driving around Chicago is the first definitive look we get of the next Bullitt Mustang. It’s wearing the iconic Dark Highland Green paint finish that was made famous in the Steve McQueen movie Bullitt from which the car gets its name. It also looks to have Recaro seats, red Brembo brake calipers, black exhaust tips, and that fake gas cap that was seen on the leaked sketchboard images that we saw earlier this year.

To be fair, Ford has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of a new Bullitt Mustang. But after seeing these new photos, it’s hard to imagine this particular Mustang being anything other than the version we’ve all been waiting for. The man who took the photos even said that it was taken while the car was in a photo shoot or a commercial. It makes me wonder then if this commercial was being shot with the intent of showing it in a big event that’s coming up in the next few months. It feels a little too late for Christmas and New Year’s Day, but there is that one sporting event coming in February where all these new commercials come out.

Could we expect this commercial for the 2018 Bullitt Mustang to come out during Super Bowl LII?

PostHeaderIcon Mustangs Heading to Scrap Get New Life as Luxury Wrist Watches

Christmas is just around the corner, so the holiday shopping craze is effectively in full swing. If you’re still looking for a gift for somebody who happens to love Ford Mustangs, these new timepieces from Rec Watches called the P-51 make for perfect gifts. It may not be a Hublot or a Panerai, but they are unique for one reason: they’re made from salvaged Ford Mustangs.


Mustangs Heading to Scrap Get New Life as Luxury Wrist Watches - image 751932
“The people behind REC Watches source their materials from Ford Mustangs that are beyond repair”

The story behind the creation of these watches is as fascinating as it is incredible. The people behind REC Watches source their materials from Ford Mustangs that are beyond repair. They don’t touch Mustangs that are in good condition, or even those that can be restored, no matter how difficult that process may be. They stick to scrappers. Once they’ve identified a Mustang they can use, they take parts of that Mustang and use those parts for their watches. They use the metal panels. They use the dials from the cars. They even try to get the identification plates of the scrapped ‘Stangs, right down to the VIN numbers. From there, they start the very real process of building these watches individually depending on the materials they have in front of them.

The result is a thing of beauty. All P-51 watches carry the same design theme. The fuel gauge serves as the power dial, which shows the watch’s battery life. Just below it is the main face, numbers, and hands of the watch. All together, they resemble the components you’d normally find on the instrument cluster on an old-school Mustang.

“If the result isn’t cool enough, REC Watches also makes it a point to dig up the history of the specific donor Mustang that they’re using”

If the result isn’t cool enough, REC Watches also makes it a point to dig up the history of the specific donor Mustang that they’re using. It even tries to find the car’s previous owners, then makes a video for the watch it creates to tell its backstory.

Needless to say, the P-51 watches don’t come cheap. There are three designs available, and pricing starts at $1,495 depending on the style. If the P-51s aren’t to your liking, REC Watches also has other offerings, including watches made from salvaged Porsche 911s and Mini Coopers. Hard to imagine finding a story like this one.

PostHeaderIcon Was a Next-Gen Ford Mustang Bullitt Caught Playing in Chicago?

One of the Forum goers over at Mustang6g.com was out and about in Chicago when he spotted what could very well be a Bullitt version of the sixth-gen Mustang. Of course, there’s no word from Ford, but its resemblance to the sketch of a Bullitt in a previous promotion video is downright uncanny. It even appears to be wearing the Dark Highland Green (DHG for short) and has those five-spoke wheels with black spokes and chrome accents. You can really make out if the rear window louvers are in place, but if you look just behind the roof line, it does appear as if there’s a little turgidity there that could, perhaps, be window louvers. If not, then maybe this is just a weird coincidence, but what do you think? Keep Reading for a little more

It Could be a Trick

The Bullitt Mustang is revered. Your Ford-hating buddy probably even understands and appreciates the Bullitt Mustang. But, whether or not this one is actually real, or is even happening for the sixth-gen Mustang is a bit of a reach. See, Ford has a nasty little habit of really sticking it to its fanboys by using heritage to sell a new model but not making the said model. Remember back when Ford introduced the 2005 Mustang? Ford’s commercial had all the right nuts and bolts. It had Steve McQueen’s likeness, a farm, a winding racetrack, and even a toss of the keys to a digitally created McQueen. Of course, if you know your Ford history, there was no 2005 Ford Mustang Bullitt. In fairness, the car in that commercial wasn’t painted in DHG, and this one appears to be, but it could be another marketing gimmick to show off the 2018 Mustang and all of its new features. All I’m saying is, don’t get too excited just yet. Just as a fun look back, here’s that Mustang introduction video from 2005 that I was just talking about. Think a digital version of Steve McQueen will show up in the 2018 Mustang Commercial that was being filmed in Chicago? Let us know your thoughts… or how badly you want a new Bullitt in the comments section below.

PostHeaderIcon Corvette ZR1 Convertible by Xtomi

Chevy just released its new Corvette ZR1, and the spec sheet is just this side of insane. All told, this thing is the fastest, most powerful production Corvette ever created, with a thumping supercharged V-8 under the hood, advanced adaptive suspension components and tuning, and more wing than an international airport. All good stuff, no doubt, but what happens when you take off the roof? To find out, X-Tomi Design put together a rendering, and long story short, we approve.

The ZR1 convertible bears the same upgraded front fascia as its hardtop sibling, with aggressive, angular front intakes, a large splitter, and a taller hood to accommodate the bigger blower underneath. The wheels, fender vents, and enormous rear wing are also a carryover. Up top, though, you’ll notice the expanded headroom. If we’ve got your attention, then you’re in luck, because word has it a factory-made ZR1 convertible will break cover soon, possibly alongside the coupe version later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Read on for the details.

What Makes The 2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible By X-Tomi Design Special


2019 Corvette ZR1 Convertible by Xtomi - image 745417

While overall we like the rendering, we can’t help but point out that it looks a little silly with that carbon fiber monstrosity hanging off the tail – indeed, cutting the roof off the ZR1 would do a good job in screwing up its formidable aerodynamics package. Chevy says the coupe makes close to 1,000 pounds of extra stick at speed, a vital feature when considering the ZR1’s 210-mph top speed. So what effect would a convertible have on performance?

“Cutting the roof off the ZR1 would do a good job in screwing up its formidable aerodynamics package.”

Luckily, recent spy shots seem to reveal that the factory convertible will get a few tweaks, including a less aggressive wing in back. The rest of it should be identical to the hardtop version, with as much as 755 horsepower and 715 pound-feet of torque on tap from a boosted 6.2-liter V-8. Magnetic ride suspension and a seven-speed manual transmission round it out, although we’re guessing convertible lovers will instead go for the optional eight-speed automatic gearbox.


2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 - image 744531
“The real question is how a roofless ZR1 will hang on the track.”

The real question is how the roofless ZR1 will hang on the track. The aero will likely be much less effective, and with no top, the car’s torsional rigidity will take a nosedive, affecting how it corners as a result. Basically, it’ll be pretty sloppy, especially with all that tire that’s stuffed in the corners. Chevy’s engineers might counter this with additional bracing in the flanks, but that’ll inevitably increase the car’s curb weight, once again hampering performance.

Either way, we’ll keep an eye out for any further developments. What do you think? Does a ZR1 convertible make sense to you, or does it neuter this latest ultimate ‘Vette? Let us know in the comments!

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000

It’s been only four three model years since the sixth-generation Ford Mustang arrived in showrooms, and the pony has already spawned an impressive number of versions wearing the Shelby badge. Although the iconic GT500 has yet to be revived, Ford has already launched the GT350, the Super Snake, GT-H, and GTE, just to name a few. The GT500 may still be a year away, but sixth-gen Mustang, but Shelby just launched yet another performance model. This time around it’s the Shelby 1000, the brand’s most menacing creation in terms of output and straight-line speed.

The Shelby 1000 is closely related to the GT500, as the first model to wear this badge, launched in 2011, was based on the fifth-generation GT500. Offered in both street and 1000 S/C track versions, the first iteration of the car was discontinued in 2012. The 1000 returned in 2013, once again based on the GT500, but now with the 5.8-liter V-8 instead of the old 5.4-liter unit under the hood. Both the street package and the S/C track package were offered. Also available as an upgrade for the GT500, the package was discontinued in 2014, after only two years on the market. The new Shelby 1000 is the first such model based on the sixth-generation Mustang, so everything about it is new compared to previous iterations. Let’s have a closer look at the car in the review below.

Continue reading to learn more about the Ford Shelby Mustang 1000.

Exterior

  • New front fascia with larger intakes
  • Bulged engine hood
  • Wider fenders
  • Fatter wheels
  • Sporty side skirts
  • “Shelby 1000” graphics
  • Trunk lid spoiler
  • New diffuser

2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742932
“The wider fenders make way for fatter tires, but also give the car a more menacing stance”

Ever since it was introduced in 2011, the Shelby 1000 made a name for itself as the most aggressive road-legal production version of the Mustang in terms of exterior design. The new model is no exception from this rule and looks even more menacing on the styling cues of the facelifted, sixth-generation ’Stang.

As usual, it sports wider than usual fenders. These were added to make way for fatter tires, but also to give the car a wider stance for increased stability and a more aggressive look. Shelby redesigned both the nose and the bumper. The grille now features a honeycomb mesh and a trapezoidal element at the bottom with “Shelby” lettering inside.


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742933
“Around back, there's a new spoiler atop the trunk lid and a more aggressive diffuser below”

Below, we can see larger side cooling ducts, a more aggressive lower grille, and a bigger splitter. The hood is new as well, now sporting a massive center bulge and big vents, both added to accommodate the supercharged engine.

Moving onto the sides, we can see a new vent on the front fender, black side sill extensions, and “Shelby 1000” lettering on the lower door area. The standard Mustang wheels have been ditched for 20-inch, forged aluminum rollers with a twin-five-spoke design. Around back, there’s a new spoiler atop the trunk lid and a new, more aggressive diffuser with wide exhaust pipes below the bumper. As usual, the black panel between the taillights comes with “Shelby” lettering.

Interior

  • Illuminated sill plates
  • Katzkin leather
  • Rear-seat delete
  • Four-point roll-bar and harness
  • Autometer gauges
  • CSM badging
  • Custom floor mats

2018 Ford Mustang - image 702221

Note: Standard 2018 Ford Mustang pictured here.

“The front seats are wrapped in Katzkin leather, while the rear seats have been removed”

Shelby has yet to release interior shots of the 1000, but it did post a list of upgrades it made to the sixth-generation Mustang. Open the door and you’ll be greeted by special, illuminated Shelby sill plates. You’ll notice almost immediately that the front seats are wrapped in Katzkin leather. Because this car was built with racing in mind, the rear seats have been removed and a four-point roll-bar and harness system was added for enhanced safety. Other highlights include an instrument with Shelby by Autometer gauges, CSM badging on the dashboard, and custom floor mats.

In addition to all of the above, customers will benefit from the sixth-gen Mustang’s redesigned interior. Despite this model being almost four years old as of 2017, I’m mentioning it because this is the first Shelby 1000 based on it. So the new 1000 will have quite a few features to stand out by compared to previous versions of the supercharged coupe, including a redesigned dashboard with a more modern design, fresh technology, softer materials, and a bit more room.

Note: Standard 2018 Ford Mustang pictured here.

“In terms of new-for-2018 tech, there's a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and Ford SYNC Connect with FordPass”

Those who opt to have the Shelby 1000 update on the facelifted, 2018-model-year ’Stang will also benefit from hand-made contrast stitching, padded knee bolsters, and aluminum door handles, rings, and bezels. You can even have a heated steering wheel if you check the option on Ford’s ordering list.

In terms of new-for-2018 tech, there’s a 12-inch digital instrument cluster with a personalized LCD and Ford SYNC Connect with FordPass. Available as an option, the latter is an app that enables drivers to start, lock, unlock, and locate their car using smartphones.

Drivetrain

  • 5.2-liter Alluminator V-8 engine
  • 4.5-liter Shelby by Whipple supercharger
  • Upgraded new, manual transmission
  • Shelby exhaust system
  • Short throw shifter
  • 1,500-horsepower rated axles
  • Penske adjustable shocks and springs
  • Ford Performance sway bars
  • Brembo braking system
  • Frame strengthening
  • Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires

Note: 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang pictured here.

“The 1000 package ditches the 5.0-liter V-8 that comes with the Mustang GT, replaced by a larger, 5.2-liter unit”

As it is the case with most Shelby muscle cars, most of the upgrades are hidden under the engine hood. The 1000 update ditches the 5.0-liter V-8 that comes with the Mustang GT, replaced by a larger, 5.2-liter unit. If it sounds familiar it’s because Shelby is using the same engine found in the cool GT350. However, while the GT350 is a naturally aspirated car, the Shelby 1000 also gets a 4.5-liter, Whipple-designed supercharger.

The assembly also gets new radiator, heat exchanger, oil cooling, and an aluminum cooling tank, as well as a Shelby exhaust with long tube headers. It mates to a new manual transmission with revised cooling parts and a short throw shifter. There’s also a one-piece drive shaft, a truple disk clutch, and a Shelby fuel pickup system. Driveline upgrades are rounded off by an oil recovery system, an ATI vibration dampener, and a high capacity oil pan.

“The new axles are rated at a whopping 1,500 horsepower”

The new axles are rated at a whopping 1,500 horsepower. Speaking of which, Shelby has yet to announce the power rating of the 1000 model, but if the past is any indication, you can specify as much horsepower as the axles can handle. In this case, 1,500 horsepower. It’s worth noting that the first-gen model developed 920 horses in road-legal specs, while the second-gen car was good for a whopping 1,200 horsepower. Assuming that Shelby will offer two power ratings, expect at least 1,000 horsepower from the base model.

But the Shelby 1000 isn’t just about engine upgrades. The chassis has been heavily modified too and now includes revised front spindle and control arms, new rear lower control arms, Penske adjustable shocks and springs, a caster camber plates and adjustable sway bar link, Ford Performance sway bars, Ford Performance half shafts, a Brembo brake system, and further frame strengthening. The wheels, which feature hardened studs, are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for enhanced grip.

“It's safe to assume that it will hit 60 mph from a standing start in less than 2.5 seconds”

Of course, you’re probably asking how fast this car is in a straight line. It’s difficult to tell without actual specs, but it should be the quickest Shelby ever created. If you really need a figure, it’s safe to assume that it will hit 60 mph from a standing start in less than 2.5 seconds. Actually, it could be almost as quick as the Dodge Challenger Demon, which needs only 2.3 ticks.

Interestingly enough, Shelby claims that the new 1000 is an entirely different car compared to its predecessors, as it has been designed to be the “ultimate road course warrior.” But this mission was far from easy, according to the firm, which said that modifying the sixth-generation Mustang was far more complication due to the independent rear suspension system and the new platform.

“Since Ford dropped the solid axle rear end, we had to take an entirely new approach,” said Vince LaViolette, Shelby vice president and head of development. “Not only did we build strength into the car with components like heavy-duty halfshafts and CV joints, we revised the entire suspension by using tubular adjustable upper and lower control arms, as well as fully adjustable coilovers. We then added 10 and 12 inch forged wheels with sticky 20 inch rubber to maximize traction with this high level of power.”
While the previous generation Shelby 1000 was offered in both street and off-road configuration, a decision was made not to pursue emissions compliance on the new model, Shelby added, which makes the newest generation 1000 “purely a track star.”

Prices


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742305

While the new Shelby 1000 package was advertised on the facelifted, 2018 Mustang, the upgrade is available for any sixth-generation Mustang GT. Production will be limited to only 50 units per year, but Shelby didn’t say whether this edition will last more than the previous ones, which were around for only two model years each. Like any Shelby out there, each car will be documented in the official Shelby Registry. Pricing for the package is set at $169,995, not including the Ford Mustang GT. Add the base car, which retails from $35,095 before options, and the Shelby 1000 will cost you a whopping $205,090!

Competition

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - image 713286

When it comes to massive horsepower and drag-ready underpinnings, the Challenger Demon is the best competitor I can think of. Developed with fast quarter mile runs in mind, the Demon is a development of the Hellcat, but with significant upgrades in just about any department. The Demon is a Hellcat on steroids on the outside, featuring a new splitter, wider fender flares, and a beefed-up engine hood. Inside, the Demon is again similar to the Hellcat, but benefits from new seats with “Demon” logos, a bespoke instrument cluster, extra performance apps, and optional leather. The standard model comes with just the driver seat, but options include two- and five-seat layouts. Power comes from a souped-up supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 that cranks out horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. It might not sound like much compared to the Shelby 1000, but the Demon needs only 2.3 seconds to hit 60 mph. However, this figure is achieved when the car is equipped with radial drag tires and used in Drag Mode. The Demon is also the fastest quarter-mile production car with a 9.65-second run at 140 mph. It’s so quick that the NHRA actually issued a ban, as regulations state that a car that’s quicker than 9.99 seconds on the drag strip (at more than 135 mph) requires extra safety equipment and a racing license. This coupe is also fitted with a large number of upgrades developed to sustain the insane performance, including the SRT Power Chiller, TransBrake, and Bilstein shocks tuned for drag racing, just to name a few. Pricing starts from $84,995 (including $1,700 gas guzzler tax, excluding $1,095 destination), which makes it $20,800 more expensive than the Hellcat, but significantly more affordable than the Shelby 1000.

Hennessey Camaro ZL1 “The Exorcist”


Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 The Exorcist by Hennessey - image 715078

Built by Texas-based tuning company Hennessey, “The Exorcist” is not a factory-built car like the Demon, but it’s put together in the same way as the Shelby 1000. And the outrageous power and its nickname make it a suitable rival for the other cars in this comparison. Built around the latest Chevy Camaro ZL1, “The Exorcist” has a supercharged, 6.2-liter V-8 rated at 1,000 horsepower and 966 pound-feet of torque and rides on drag slicks. The 0-to-60 mph sprint comes in “under three seconds” while the quarter-mile happens in “less than 10 seconds,” which should be pretty close to the Shelby 1000. The good news is that even though it’s not a factory vehicle, the upgrade can be ordered through Chevrolet dealerships and comes with a two-year/24,000-mile warranty. What’s more, the 10-speed automatic transmission is joined by a six-speed manual, whereas the Demon can’t be had with a stick. Pricing for this package starts from $55,000, not including the car, which means that the sticker actually begins from $116,140. Get all the options and “The Exorcist” will set you back a whopping $142,080. Far from affordable, but definitely not as expensive as the Shelby 1000.

Read our full story on the Hennessey Camaro ZL1 “The Exorcist.”

Conclusion


2018 Ford Shelby Mustang 1000 - image 742306

The Shelby 1000 is far from being among the brand’s most iconic nameplates. Because it’s still relatively new, having been first introduced in 2011, it will be overshadowed by the GT350, GT500 and the Super Snake for many years to come. On the other, I have to give the 1000 credit for being the most extreme Shelby ever built. And with new axles rated at 1,500 horsepower, the new Shelby 1000 will be more powerful than ever. Granted, there’s a chance it won’t be as quick as the Challenger SRT Demon on the drag strip, but it will put any production muscle car and most aftermarket upgrades to shame in terms of horsepower. And needless to say, it doesn’t look bad either. Put a big wing on that thing, and you’ll have a full-fledged race car on your hands. The only downside here is that the Shelby 1000 is very expensive. You can buy a Porsche 911 GT3 and still have some $60,000 to spend on fuel and weekends at the Nurburgring.

  • Leave it
    • Likely not as quick as the Demon
    • Very, very expensive

PostHeaderIcon AMC Javelin AMX Deviant! By Ringbrothers

The SEMA Show in Las Vegas is a great event if you like aftermarket car upgrades and various equipment for SUVs and pickup trucks, but sometimes it’s a nice place to find restomods. Ringbrothers is one of the companies that bring one or two new restomods at each edition, and needless to say, it’s doing a great job at combining classic designs with modern features and drivetrains. Well, Ringbrothers did it again this year, but unlike previous events, the 2017 SEMA Show hosted the public debut of a truly special car. While most tuners usually go with Fords, Chevys, and Dodges for their restomod projects, Ringbrothers picked a 1972 AMC Javelin this time around. Yup, this underrated competitor for the Big Three muscle cars of the late 1960s and early 1970s got a complete makeover with all the bells and whistles Ringbrothers is known for.

Granted, choosing a Javelin for such a project may seem like a weird choice with much more popular muscle cars around, but it’s great to see that big companies like Ringbrothers is trying something different for a change. And needless to say, the Defiant! turned out great. It’s not only the coolest AMC restomod yet, but it also puts most projects from this year’s SEMA Show to shame. Keep reading for the full details.

Continue reading for the full story.

What makes the AMC Javelin AMX Deviant! By Ringbrothers special?

  • Carbon-fiber front fenders
  • Bulged hood
  • Aggressive front bumper
  • Side-exiting exhaust
  • Black roof
  • Wider rear fenders
  • Custom rear diffuser
  • Machine-turned instrument cluster
  • New upholstery
  • Modified Dodge Challenger Hellcat engine
  • 1,100 horsepower!
  • Four-speed transmission
  • Modern subframe and suspension

“It's a Javelin AMX on steroids. Brutal and modern”

Much like any Ringbrothers creation, the Defiant! is a significant makeover of the stock vehicle. It’s a Javelin AMX on steroids. Brutal and modern.

Most of the car’s notable features, such as the round headlamps, the pointy grille, and the arched fenders are still there, but everything else from the windshield to the nose has been redesigned. Arguably the most interesting fact here is that Ringbrothers moved the front wheels and arches forward by 6.5 inches in order to eliminate the original car’s long overhang. But the firm didn’t modify the stock fenders. These were removed and replaced by custom-made, carbon-fiber ones. The bumper was also replaced with a more menacing element that reminds of modern race cars. Finally, the engine hood gained a massive bulge to make room for the supercharged engine.

The remaining side body panels were modified too. While the rear fenders became wider, the side skirts now feature side-exiting exhaust pipes. The A-pillars and the roof are finished in black, just like the upper front fascia and the center section of the engine hood. The wheels are new too and feature a twin-five-spoke, dual-color design with high-performance tires.

“The stock front fenders were replaced by custom-made, carbon-fiber ones”

Modifications are rather subdued around back, where the ducktail spoiler, taillights, and bumper were kept in stock form. However, Ringbrothers did add a two-piece diffuser and a new emblem between the thin and long taillights. Rounding off the custom Javelin AMG is a sparkly gold color that keeps some of the car’s classic vibe alive.

Interior changes aren’t as radical, but the instrument cluster gained a machine-turned metal finish. There’s also new leather upholstery, modern floor mats, and slight changes to the steering wheel and center console. Classy!

“Interior changes aren't as radical, but the instrument cluster gained a machine-turned metal finish”

Under the hood, the AMX is no longer a Javelin. While the 1972 model was powered by a naturally aspirated V-8, this modern rendition draws its juice from a modified version of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat’s 6.2-liter V-8. A bit blasphemous for AMC loyalists I guess, but hey, this is a restomod after all. The V-8 is topped with a 4.5-liter supercharger that raises the power from the Hellcat-standard 707 horsepower to a whopping 1,100 horses. All that oomph is channeled to the wheels through a four-speed automatic transmission connected to the rear wheels via a carbon fiber driveshaft. Six-piston brakes provide stopping power.

“The modified Hellcat engine cranks out a whopping 1,100 horsepower”

The muscle car rides on a custom front subframe originally designed for a Camaro and fitted with modern sway bars and RideTech suspension components. A Chevrolet 12-bolt rear end is mounted on a four-link suspension designed by the Ringsbrothers.

The original Javelin might not have been that impressive compared to the competition, but this thing is something else. But as it is the case with Ringbrothers builds, the Defiant! will remain unique. But I’m sure they wouldn’t say no to another AMC-based project should you want one.

Unveiled in 2013, the sixth-generation Mustang marked the beginning of a new era for the iconic pony car, one that brought an independent rear suspension for the first time and revived the turbocharged ’Stang after a long hiatus. Revised for 2018, it received a 10-speed transmission, also a first, and a performance package that made the GT version the quickest in history with a 0-to-60 mph sprint of fewer than four seconds. But Ford didn’t stop there, and after just a few months it launched the Performance Pack Level 2 for the range-topping GT model.

Unveiled at the SEMA Show, the place where the world’s most spectacular aftermarket upgrades are introduced to the world, Level 2 is essentially an update to the first Performance Pack. It includes everything that comes with the latter but adds redesigned aero elements front and rear, new tires and wheels, and new suspension parts and settings. The purpose of the Level 2 upgrade is to make the Mustang GT even faster than it already is and turn it into a better competitor for German coupes such as the BMW M4. Also, the Mustang GT with Performance Pack Level 2 may be a solid proposition to the Porsche 911 Carrera. Which is a big achievement for a pony car. Find our more about that below.

What makes the Ford Mustang GT Performance Pack Level 2 special

  • New front splitter and rear spoiler
  • New lightweight wheels
  • High-performance tires
  • Custom graphics
  • Optional Recaro seats
  • Includes Performance Pack Level 1
  • Custom-tuned MagneRide dampers
  • Quicker steering calibration
  • Stiffer stabilizer bars
  • Stiffer springs

“The new splitter is based on that of the Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca”

The Performance Pack Level 2 may not do much to alter the Mustang GT’s appearance at first glance, but look closer and you’ll see a new splitter below the front bumper. Designed around the splitter of the iconic Mustang Boss 302 Laguna Seca, it’s attached to the underside to fan out as much as three inches around the corners. This creates about 24 pounds of extra downforce at 80 mph, helping give the car enhanced grip. To balance the downforce, a subtle rear spoiler was added atop the decklid.

The spoiler was created with a 3D printer, which enabled quicker turnaround times, eliminating much of the time wasted on the usual trial-and-error process. What’s more, both the splitter and the spoiler were designed by Mustang veteran Jonathan Gesek, also a
former aerodynamics specialist at NASA.

“The rear spoiler was created with a 3D printer”

Other features that set it apart from the first Performance Package model are the split-fitment, 19-inch aluminum wheels and the lowered ride height. The rollers were designed by longtime tire and wheel engineer Chauncy Eggleston. Wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tire, the 19-inch wheels help provide improved steering and handling response.

Finally, the package is rounded off by black detailing on the splitter and spoiler, the tire spat on the back edge of the rear wheel wells, which are exclusive to this upgrade.

Everything remains unchanged inside the cabin, but customers who opt for Performance Pack Level 2 can select Recaro front seats in either leather or cloth.

“The bespoke wheels are wrapped in high-performance Michelin tires”

There are no changes to the 5.0-liter V-8 engine, but the unit already benefits from the extra oomph that comes with the facelift. Specifically, it cranks out 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, a 25-horsepower and 20 pound-feet improvement over the previous Mustang GT. The package is available exclusively with a manual transmission, so forget about that new 10-speed automatic transmission if you want this upgrade.

Before we move further, it’s important to note that the Performance Pack Level 2 includes all of the features of Performance Pack Level 1. That’s a unique chassis and antilock brake tuning, unique stability control and electric power-assisted steering, Brembo six-piston front brake calipers with larger rotors, a K-brace, larger radiator, silver-painted strut tower brace, and a Torsen rear differential with 3.73 axle ratio.

“Custom-tuned MagneRide dampers and quicker steering calibration provide better response”

In addition to that, it sports custom-tuned MagneRide dampers and quicker steering calibration for better response, new stabilizer bars, and stiffer springs. The rear stabilizer bar is 67-percent stiffer, while the rear bar is 12-percent firmer. Likewise, the Level 2 bundle has 20-percent stiffer front springs and 13-percent stiffer rear spring. These updates provide a more stable ride around corners with less body roll. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, usually found on high-profile sports cars, are 1.5 inches wider than those offered with the Performance Pack Level 1. They provide a firmer grip and put the car more than a half-inch closer to the ground.

There’s no word on performance yet, but this performance pack could make the Mustang GT a tenth-second quicker than it already is. A 3.8-second sprint from 0 to 60 mph seems doable and makes the GT quicker than a lot of significantly more expensive alternatives made in Germany.

Chevrolet COPO Camaro

Chevrolet has launched its 2018 COPO Camaro with an all-new, 302 cubic-inch V-8 and “Supercrush” orange paint with black racing stripes just like the 2018 Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition, which debuted alongside it. Both cars will make their first public appearance next week at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. And, while anyone can order the Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition, the COPO Camaro is a race-bred monster built exclusively for the dragstrip and limited to 69 examples per year. Hopeful buyers have to win Chevy’s lottery for the chance at COPO keys.

The COPO Camaro has a rich history that dates back to 1969 when Illinois Chevy dealer Fred Gibb ordered 50 Camaros with the all-aluminum ZL-1 V-8 from Chevy’s central office production order system, hints the COPO name. Basically, these were special-order cars that proved insanely quick. Soon, 19 other COPO Camaros in similar configurations were ordered by other eagle-eyed dealerships. Yenko Chevrolet also got in on the action, ordering 201 COPO Camaros with a 427 cubic-inch iron-block V-8 in 1969. Sadly, the original COPO Camaros were a one-year-only phenomenon – that is, until Chevy decided to build its own COPO Camaro with its all-new, fifth-generation Camaro for 2012. Since then, the COPO tradition has lived on into the Camaro’s sixth generation and into 2018. To see what changes Chevy has made for this year, keep reading.

Continue for more information on the 2018 COPO Camaro.

Exterior

  • Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Package
  • Supercrush orange paint & black stripes
  • Purely for drag racing
  • Limited to 69 examples

“The 2018 COPO Camaro can be ordered with a bright Supercrush orange paint with the black racing stripes and Hot Wheels fender badges”

To understand why the 2018 COPO Camaro looks the way it does, we’ve got to check out the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition. This car honors the long history between the Camaro and the famed toy car builder, Hot Wheels, by throwing on a highly visible paint color, racing stripes, unique 20-inch Satin Graphite wheels, Hot Wheels badges on the front fenders, and a slew of added Hot Wheels details on the inside. It can be had in both coupe and convertible form and with either the 2LT or 2SS trim packages. That means it’s available in only the highest trim, but with the 2.0-liter turbo-four, the 3.6-liter V-6, or the 6.2-liter V-8.

The 2018 COPO Camaro can be ordered with a similar exterior treatment that includes the bright Supercrush orange paint with the black racing stripes and Hot Wheels fender badges. But that’s where the similarities end between it and the road-going Camaro. The COPO wears an airbrushed-style copy of the “Hot Wheels 50” logo on its rear haunches, has a tall ram-air hood, and drag racing equipment that includes skinny front tires massive rear slicks, wheelie bars, and a parachute. You’ll also notice the missing side mirrors and low-buck headlights. Those changes are meant to save weight. There’s no denying the COPO is meant to live on the drag strip.

Interior

  • NHRA-certified to race
  • Gutted cabin for reduced mass
  • Pro-level gauges and controls

2018 Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition - image 740872

Note: Chevrolet Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition pictured here.

Speaking of saving weight, the COPO Camaro’s cockpit barely resembles the production car. The dashboard, steering wheel, and door panels are about the only stock pieces still in place. NHRA-rated racing seats and five-point harness replace the standard seats. A full roll cage keeps the driver and front passenger protected. Controls include a set of aftermarket analog gauges, an A-pillar-mounted tachometer, a shift light, and a rocker switches in place of the infotainment screen that controls the ignition, fuel pump, radiator fans, and the starter motor. A ratchet shifter controls the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and beside that is a lever to release the parachute. It’s all business inside the COPO.

Drivetrain

  • New 302 cubic-inch V-8 built for high revs
  • 427 cubic-inch V-8 with 470 horsepower
  • Supercharged 350 cubic-inch V-8 with 580
  • Quarter-mile times in mid-8s at 160 mph
  • TH400 three-speed automatic
  • Solid rear axle

2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro - image 740877
“The 2018 COPO Camaro has three engine options”

The 2018 COPO Camaro has three engine options. There’s the 427 cubic-inch, 7.0-liter V-8, the supercharged 350 cubic-inch V-8 (5.7 liters), and the new 302 cubic-inch V-8. The new 4.9-liter replaces the 410-horsepower, LT1-based 6.2-liter found in the 2016 and 2017 COPOs. Technically, the 4.9-liter is a de-stroked 6.2-liter LT1 that’s build to hit higher revs. Chevy didn’t get into the exact details, but expect to see the 302’s redline well past 7,000 rpm. Likewise, horsepower and torque figures haven’t been published, but expect it to be competitive with the outgoing 6.2-liter.

The returning 427 is also naturally aspirated and is based on the LS7 V-8 found in the fifth-generation Camaro Z/28. In this application, it should make 470 horsepower. The supercharged 5.7-liter is an LSX small block race mill with a 2.9-liter roots-type blower force-feeding it cool air. Last year, the engine made an NHRA-certified 580 horsepower and boasted a redline of 8,000 rpm. That’s no joke.
In fact, the 350-powered COPO will do the quarter-mile in the mid-eights at a blistering 160 mph.

“Regardless of engine choice, the transmission is an ATI TH400 three-speed automatic with a ratchet shifter”

Regardless of engine choice, the transmission is an ATI TH400 three-speed automatic with a ratchet shifter. Super strong with crazy fasts shifts, the turbo-hydramatic 400 is a legendary transmission that’s been used for decades.

And unlike the standard sixth-generation Camaro with its independent rear end, the COPO uses a solid rear axle with a multi-link suspension system. The front suspension is also adjustable to suit track conditions. That just goes to show, sometimes old technology works just fine.

The COPO is designed to compete in the NHRA’s Stock Eliminator Class.

Pricing


2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro - image 741105

The exact pricing for the 2018 COPO Camaro has not been announced, but 2016 and 2017 COPOs sold for between $90,000 and $110,000, depending on what options were ordered. Expect those prices to continue, though Chevy is likely to charge more for the Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary paint job.

On the road-legal 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition, the package adds $4,995 to the MSRP and is limited to 2,500 cars.

Competition

2016 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet


2016 Ford Mustang Cobra Jet - image 653934

Ford is in on the NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock class action, too. The 2016 Cobra Jet is a special-built drag car with 1,000 horsepower from a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 that shares nearly 75 percent of its internal parts with the stock Mustang GT. It has a solid rear axle, massive drag slicks, and the all-important parachute. Inside, the cabin is stripped of all unnecessary parts and fitted with a roll cage and race seats. Basically, it’s Ford’s direct answer to the COPO Camaro. Ford even limited the Cobra Jet to 50 examples. Sadly, 2016 is the most recent example Ford has produced.

2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon


2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon - image 729184

The Demon has gotten plenty of press over the last year thanks to Dodge’s incredibly slow yet methodically planned rollout. The car was well worth the wait, though, thanks to its insane level of go-fast drag strip technology. Its powered by a modified Hellcat engine that displaces the same 6.2 liters of Hemi goodness, but with 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque when ran on race fuel. An eight-speed automatic transmission is the same ZF gearbox found in the standard Challenger Hellcat. Dodge somehow makes this four-seater hit 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 9.65 seconds at 140 mph.

The best part, of course, is the Demon is completely street legal and comes with a VIN – something no COPO or Cobra Jet can boast. Better yet, Dodge is building 3,000 of them for 2017. The price is even comparatively reasonable at $86,090.

Conclusion


2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro - image 740876

The 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is a helluva car, though only if you’re planning on living life a quarter-mile at a time. Vin Diesel has met his match. The COPO offers a factory-built dragster to anybody with six figures in their bank account and enough luck to win the independently moderated and randomly drawn lottery. Remember, only 69 COPOs are built each year.

And should you want your Camaro to do more than drive straight, Chevrolet also has you covered with the Camaro GT4.R track car. This ZL1 1LE-based GT4 car is designed to out-turn, out-stop, and out-accelerate the best from Germany, all for $259,000.

2018 Ford Mustang RTR

Part of the Ford Mustang’s appeal lies in its ability to be easily customized. We’ve seen so many versions of the ‘Stang over the years, and there are a handful of them that are head and shoulders above the rest, including the Ford Mustang RTR. Created by Ford in partnership with Pro Formula Drift driver Vaughn Gittin Jr., the Mustang RTR stands tall as one of the sickest interpretations of the iconic muscle car. It’s essentially a Mustang on steroids, accomplished in part because Ford is always looking for ways to improve the car’s status as one of the best pony machines in the market today.

Those of you who are familiar with the RTR badge will know that it’s become somewhat of a tradition for Ford and Gittin Jr. to collaborate on this specific kind of creation. In fact, the past decade has given birth to a good number of Mustang RTRs, ranging from the subtle to the over-the-top. Hard to think of the 2014 Mustang RTR as anything but outlandish, but that’s the whole point on why the RTR badge has become synonymous with Ford’s legendary muscle car. This year, a new version of the Mustang RTR is set to make its debut at the 2017 SEMA Show, and really, where else would it do it? Ford and Gittin Jr.’s aftermarket firm are once again heavily involved in its creation, and the result is nothing short of our expectations. Improved looks, more power, and a seal of approval from one of the best race drifters in the world. This is what awaits us when we get a hold of the latest version of the Mustang RTR.

“The RTR Design Package features a steady stream of design pieces meant to enhance the muscle car’s visual looks”

If pictures painted thousands of words, the Mustang RTR is going to turn some serious heads. While it’s somewhat true that almost all of the signature elements from the last RTR remains here, the underlying appeal of the special edition Mustang still holds weight. The name of the game in this section is the RTR Design Package, which features a steady stream of design pieces meant to enhance the muscle car’s visual looks. The triangular-shaped LED accent lights on the grille count as one of the most distinct exterior features, but there’s also a new front splitter and a more sculpted hood in the mix now. Combine these aero parts with black accent striping on the hood and side profile and a new set of 19-inch Tech 7 wheels wrapped in Nitto 555G2 tires and you have the makings of a Mustang RTR that does its predecessors proud.

It’s admittedly not as flashy as some of the past Mustang RTR’s we’ve seen before, but remember, those versions Gittin Jr. created with the help of Monster Energy and Nitto tires were race-spec units of the RTR. This one, like the more subtle RTR-spec versions that have also come out, are road-production models. If you want to see the difference, check out the photos below.

“There are some noteworthy pieces like the Recaro sports seats and the signed dash plaque by Gittin Jr. himself”

Judging by what we’ve come to know about past Ford Mustang RTRs, the road-spec versions are lacking in terms of exclusive interior goodies. There are some noteworthy pieces like the Recaro sports seats and the signed dash plaque by Gittin Jr. himself, but for the most part, the most you can expect are throw-in items like the RTR shift knob and if you really want to go all-out, the RTR-branded floor mats.

That’s likely the extent of what we can expect from the RTR unit, though Ford may still have a few more surprises up its sleeve once the special edition Mustang makes its official debut at SEMA.

Specific details surrounding the power and performance credentials of the Mustang RTR are still shrouded in secrecy, we can at least expect it to hit the magic number of 700 horsepower. That’s the indication Ford has given us as it pertains to the Spec 3 state of tune that the Mustang RTR will have at its disposal. On the other end, details about the Spec 1 and Spec 2 tunes are expected to be announced at SEMA, so that’s two things we can at least look forward to. Regardless of their specific states, the 2018 Mustang RTR should come with noticeable power and performance improvements over its predecessor. Not by much, but still something worthwhile. My best guess would be that the Spec 1 RTR will simply be a design and aero-focused tune. That means it’s going to carry the same output as the stock model, or about 460 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque at the tilt.

As far as Spec 2 is concerned, the previous road-spec version of the RTR carried over with a 30-horsepower increase from the standard unit so given what the 2018 Mustang has at its disposal, somewhere in the territory of 500 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque is a possibility. The incremental gains will likely be credited to software upgrades.

“Adjustable sway bars and a sports exhaust system should also be featured elements.”

Last but not least is Spec 3. This is where a supercharger and a few other fun bits, including an intercooler and an upgraded fuel injection system, were thrown into the mix and the result of that on the last Mustang RTR was an output of 670 horsepower. If Ford decided to adopt the same approach using the Mustang’s new engine configuration, 700 ponies is definitely attainable.

On the suspension side, lowering springs are a lock to be included, owing to the fact that they’re included in the RTR Design Package. That said, adjustable sway bars and a sports exhaust system should also be featured elements.

Pricing


2018 Ford Mustang RTR - image 741087

Ahh, yes, The question that trumps all manner of features and oddities for each and every car. How much is it? Well, Ford hasn’t released a price tag yet, but we were hinted on the likelihood that the Mustang RTR will carry a price tag of somewhere in the neighborhood of $65,000.

That figure came to our attention because of a giveaway being sponsored by American Muscle. Yep, one lucky Mustang aficionado will win one of the first Mustang RTRs to come out of production. The drawing isn’t taking place until April 6, 2018, but the giveaway did mention that the special edition Mustang carries an “approximate retail value” of $65,000. It’s far from a slam dunk that the figure is the exact price, but at least it’s somewhere in the neighborhood of that.

Those who miss out on the giveaway will still get a shot at owning the car as it’s scheduled to become available at select Ford dealerships sometime in the spring of next year.

Conclusion


2018 Ford Mustang RTR - image 741086

It’s Ford. It’s Vaughn Gittin Jr. It’s the new Ford Mustang RTR. Really, what could go wrong? I certainly don’t expect any hiccups as far as the new ’Stang RTR is concerned. We’ve seen what the protagonists are capable of in the past so there’s no reason to believe that this new version is going to be a letdown. Regardless of what we see at SEMA, I fully expect the new Mustang RTR to be a hot-ticket item when it goes up on sale next year, as it should since Ford and Vaughn Gittin Jr. have been doing this racket for almost a decade now with no let-up in sight. Seems like they’re doing something good so why mess with that?

    • Not much happening on the interior
    • Expected bigger and more profound improvements from previous version

2018 Ford Mustang RTR

Part of the Ford Mustang’s appeal lies in its ability to be easily customized. We’ve seen so many versions of the ‘Stang over the years, and there are a handful of them that are head and shoulders above the rest, including the Ford Mustang RTR. Created by Ford in partnership with Pro Formula Drift driver Vaughn Gittin Jr., the Mustang RTR stands tall as one of the sickest interpretations of the iconic muscle car. It’s essentially a Mustang on steroids, accomplished in part because Ford is always looking for ways to improve the car’s status as one of the best pony machines in the market today.

Those of you who are familiar with the RTR badge will know that it’s become somewhat of a tradition for Ford and Gittin Jr. to collaborate on this specific kind of creation. In fact, the past decade has given birth to a good number of Mustang RTRs, ranging from the subtle to the over-the-top. Hard to think of the 2014 Mustang RTR as anything but outlandish, but that’s the whole point on why the RTR badge has become synonymous with Ford’s legendary muscle car. This year, a new version of the Mustang RTR is set to make its debut at the 2017 SEMA Show, and really, where else would it do it? Ford and Gittin Jr.’s aftermarket firm are once again heavily involved in its creation, and the result is nothing short of our expectations. Improved looks, more power, and a seal of approval from one of the best race drifters in the world. This is what awaits us when we get a hold of the latest version of the Mustang RTR.

Exterior

  • Front lip spoiler
  • Sculpted hood
  • RTR signature LED grille lighting
  • RTR Appearance Package
  • RTR graphics
  • RTR 19″ Tech 7 wheels w/ Nitto 555G2 tires

“The RTR Design Package features a steady stream of design pieces meant to enhance the muscle car’s visual looks”

If pictures painted thousands of words, the Mustang RTR is going to turn some serious heads. While it’s somewhat true that almost all of the signature elements from the last RTR remains here, the underlying appeal of the special edition Mustang still holds weight. The name of the game in this section is the RTR Design Package, which features a steady stream of design pieces meant to enhance the muscle car’s visual looks. The triangular-shaped LED accent lights on the grille count as one of the most distinct exterior features, but there’s also a new front splitter and a more sculpted hood in the mix now. Combine these aero parts with black accent striping on the hood and side profile and a new set of 19-inch Tech 7 wheels wrapped in Nitto 555G2 tires and you have the makings of a Mustang RTR that does its predecessors proud.

It’s admittedly not as flashy as some of the past Mustang RTR’s we’ve seen before, but remember, those versions Gittin Jr. created with the help of Monster Energy and Nitto tires were race-spec units of the RTR. This one, like the more subtle RTR-spec versions that have also come out, are road-production models. If you want to see the difference, check out the photos below.

Interior

  • Recaro sports seats
  • Signed dash plaque by Vaughn Gittin Jr.
  • RTR shift knob
  • RTR floor mats

“There are some noteworthy pieces like the Recaro sports seats and the signed dash plaque by Gittin Jr. himself”

Judging by what we’ve come to know about past Ford Mustang RTRs, the road-spec versions are lacking in terms of exclusive interior goodies. There are some noteworthy pieces like the Recaro sports seats and the signed dash plaque by Gittin Jr. himself, but for the most part, the most you can expect are throw-in items like the RTR shift knob and if you really want to go all-out, the RTR-branded floor mats.

That’s likely the extent of what we can expect from the RTR unit, though Ford may still have a few more surprises up its sleeve once the special edition Mustang makes its official debut at SEMA.

Drivetrain

  • Three Spec options
  • Around 700 horsepower for the Spec 3 tune
