2014 Ford Mustang V8 GT Coupe The Black Edition


U.S. based auto maker Ford has officially unveiled their latest limited edition model in the 2014 Ford Mustang V8 GT Coupe The Black Edition. This 2-door sports car is drenched in a jet black paint job, and the blacked-out theme continues all throughout. The 19-inch aluminum wheels have been finished off with black accents, and the entire interior is black as well. The Black edition Mustang also features a three-layer structured glass roof that blocks 90 percent of infrared rays along with 96 percent of ultraviolet rays. Now for the good stuff. This Mustang is packed with a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine that puts down 426 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque through a 6-speed automatic transmission (unfortunately no manual version is available). The vehicle is limited to just 40 units, will only be available in Japan, and will sell for roughly $50,000 when it releases on March 15th.

The Brand New Ford Mustang GT.

If you happen to think that your Ford GT Mustang is a little boring, look no further.  After seeing these photos provided by Autoblog we were pretty much cleaning up our own drool. Reifen Koch slaps the car with a facelift using the Cervini body kits which leaves the Mustang looking amazing. The “Konquistador” package also includes a side-exit exhaust system, a full KW coilover kit and a hydraulic axle-lift system. Check out the whole press release at Autoblog if you’d like, if not enjoy the photos below.  I just want to know what my homie Yum Yum thinks of this…

The Shelby 2-Wheel Cruiser?

Fans of automotive legend Carroll Shelby have traditionally lusted after masterpieces such as the Shelby Cobra and Mustang, but now they can get their fix from an entirely different beast — with two wheels.  This week saw a partnership of a new kind with competition bike manufacturer Felt Bicycles, to develop a cruiser which pays homage to the iconic Shelby image.  Finished in the legendary Wimbledon White and Guardsman Blue paint scheme of some of Shelby’s most iconic vehicles (including the GT350).  It is based on Felt’s hydro-formed aluminium tank frame, which is fitted with three-speed internal gears and linkage-designed springer forks which Felt says provide “fast and precise handling.”  The 36-spoke wheels, meanwhile, feature “blue dot” tires, another nod to Shelby’s auto racing history.  The two-wheeler will be produced as a limited edition model from the end of this month. The Shelby bike will be available worldwide for $999.
