MutangFoose20150609Modern Muscle Design (MMD), the leader in aftermarket Mustang styling, along with the renowned vehicle designer, Chip Foose, last week unveiled a one-off 810-horsepower supercharged MMD by Foose 2015 Mustang GT at the Foose Design Inc. headquarters in Huntington Beach, California.

The reveal comes ahead of the annual AmericanMuscle Mustang Show in Pennsylvania where the custom-built Mustang will be given away. The 2015 AmericanMuscle Mustang Show is the 7th annual charity all-Mustang car show in which more than 10,000 spectators and nearly 3,000 Mustangs gather to benefit this year’s charity, Make-A-Wish.

At the heart of MMD by Foose is a 5.0-liter V8 engine producing more than 810 horsepower at the crank courtesy of a specially tuned version of Bama Performance’s 2.9-liter twin scroll Whipple supercharger. After being routed through the transmission, a custom carbon fiber driveshaft and upgraded axles from The Driveshaft Shop, 650 horsepower reaches the custom 20-inch Foose Design wheels wrapped in Pirelli tires. Additional performance enhancements include a Magnaflow Competition Cat-back exhaust system built to optimize exhaust flow and performance for the MMD by Foose 2015 Mustang, as well as Vogtland Sport Suspension. These assure the perfect stance and handling to cope with the car’s increased acceleration.

Starting first as a simple sketch months prior, Foose incorporated his signature design aesthetic into every aspect of the Mustang, complementing the car’s high performance and bringing eight new MMD by Foose components to life that will be available as standalone parts to order later this year. Using an advanced system of sculpting and prototyping, MMD and Foose developed the new parts to become seamless additions to the Mustang’s factory design. Each new part was further refined to ensure world-class OE-spec fitments and customer satisfaction when they go on sale in the fall, sold exclusively through www.AmericanMuscle.com.

The new MMD by Foose products installed on this 2015 Mustang GT include: a chin spoiler, a sleek chin-spoiler that adds a cleaner, lower appearance to the front bumper; a hood scoop, which is a dual ram-air styled hood scoop that adds an aggressive look to the front end of the car; a Foose Rocker Panel that elegantly matches the side profile of the vehicle that gives it a lower overall look; side scoops that accent the vehicle’s factory body lines and draw inspiration from the performance pony cars of the 1960s and 1970s; quarter window louvers that perfectly compliment the creases found in the hood scoop and side scoops; and rear spoiler that looks sleek and elegant enough to be original equipment, yet aggressive enough to turn heads.

“I am so excited about the parts that MMD and I have been working on for the 2015 Mustang. They really enhance the factory styling while keeping that classic Mustang look,” said Chip Foose. “We started by looking at the factory design language of the car itself and I really wanted to translate that into all of the parts that I designed. I didn’t want them to look like an afterthought or obviously an aftermarket part, but something you could get right from the factory.”

Starting today and through August 3, 2015, fans can enter online up to once a week to win the MMD by Foose. AmericanMuscle will fly the winner to its 2015 Mustang Show in Mohnton, Pennsylvania.  Chip Foose will be on hand to deliver the keys to the lucky winner on August 15.
