Could the new 2016 Ford Mustang GT get any better? Leave it to Richard Petty to make it so. He and his famed speed shop, Petty’s Garage, have pulled out the big guns to modify 300 Mustang GTs, taking the level of performance superiority and overall refinement of these incredible pony cars to a whole new level.
Though it might be hard to imagine how the 2016 Ford Mustang could look any better, Petty and his team managed to pull off a number of fantastic appearance-enhancing modifications. The Mustang GTs feature a custom rear diffuser as well as a custom, center-mounted single exhaust. A rear spoiler and embroidered head restraints both add a nice touch of flavor.
Of course, most people are going to be interested in the performance modifications and they are exciting, to say the least. The speed shop takes a factory Mustang GT, with a stock 5.0-liter V8, and adds a supercharger. A new cold-air intake and Magnaflow exhaust helps things along quite nicely. The result is a finely tuned, well-oiled machine that delivers 670 horsepower.
According to Richard Petty himself, these King Edition 2016 Mustang GTs are exactly how he’d mod them. But what does he know? He only won the NASCAR championship seven times.
