Faster Five: More Mustang Muscle for SEMA

31 October 2018

Top tuners are at it again cranking up America’s favourite sports car even more for the 2018 Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association Show, showcasing why Mustang is one of the world’s most customised vehicles. Having grown into an all-around global sports car, these five tuned Mustangs will see all performance ingredients enhance to help Mustang fans make a statement on nearly any track or street they choose.

CGS Motorsports brings tasteful modifications to a 2018 Mustang GT with this clean interpretation of modern muscle. Large 410-millimeter rotors combine with six-piston Brembo callipers to deliver the stopping power necessary to properly tame this vicious steed.
