DEARBORN, Michigan — Ford has provided the first look at its 2014 Ford Mustang GT Project Yellow Jacket that will debut at the upcoming 2013 SEMA Show.
The yellow pony car was created by Vortech Superchargers and has a variety of external and internal modifications. Ford said the idea is to create a "serious sting" at SEMA.
The exterior is dressed up with a body kit, carbon-fiber cowl induction hood, carbon-fiber accents and custom yellow paint supplied by DuPont. Other details include 20-inch iForged wheels wrapped in Falken tires.
"As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn't offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang," said Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group. "We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance."
Vortech Superchargers started with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that is found in the 2014 Ford Mustang GT. Vortech then added its V-3 Si supercharging system that increased output to 605 horsepower and 473 pound-feet of torque while running 7.5 psi of boost. The suspension and braking systems were also upgraded to handle the extra ponies.
The only other modification listed is a custom Webasto electronic sunroof, but we spy a roll cage and Vortech logos on the headrests.
Ford isn't the only automaker bringing the yellow heat to the 2013 SEMA Show. Hyundai recently unveiled its 2013 Veloster Turbo "Yellowcake" Night Racer that will be making an appearance as well.
Edmunds says: The flood gates are starting to open — for yellow cars and others — at the 2013 SEMA Show.
