If you're sick of Eleanor knock-offs, then you'll love this villainous Mustang.
Oklahoma-based Classic Recreations just introduced a sinister restomod based on the 1968 Ford Mustang, and its name, appropriately enough, is Villain. If you have at least $154,900 to drop on a custom Mustang (or more with options), then you'll want to check this bad boy out.
Starting with a '67 or '68 Mustang fastback, Classic Recreations transforms the body with cool fiberglass accents including a dual scoop hood, a larger side scoop, deleted fastback windows, a cool duck tail spoiler and wider fenders. Those fender extensions are necessary to accommodate the massive Forgeline 18x9.5-inch front and 18x12-inch rear wheels. Standard color combinations consist of Orange/Matte Black, Black/Orange, Blue/Silver and Red/Matte Black, but custom color options are available as well.
Backing up its mean, menacing looks, this '68 Mustang is rocking a Ford Racing 5.0-liter Coyote V8 helping to lay 475 horsepower, and for an extra $10,500, this engine can be topped with a Ford Performance Roush supercharger resulting in a tire-shredding 770 horsepower. A Tremec six-speed manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels through nine-inch rear end with 3.89 gears and posi traction.
To handle all this power, the engine gets an upgraded cooling system with aluminum radiator and dual cooling fans, and the chassis has been strengthened with subframe connectors. To ensure this car handles as good as it looks, Villain has coil-over shocks at all four corners with a four-link rear axle, and he brakes consist of six-piston Wilwood calipers with massive slotted and cross-drilled 14-inch rotors.
Inside, this Mustang gets sport bucket seats, five-point harnesses, custom gauges, Sparco steering wheel, modern air conditioning, six-point roll bar and a JVC Bluetooth audio system. The trunk is clean and finished as well, and that's where you'll find the relocated battery and the Kicker stereo amp. In addition to the custom color options, there are plenty of options available to customers including leather seats, a flip-out DVD screen and there's even a right-hand drive conversion (for an extra $12,500).
All in, this 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback is one mean-looking restomod, and it's sure to get attention wherever it goes.
