No doubt the new 2015 Ford Mustang is the hottest car at this year’s SEMA Show.
To showcase the customization possibilities for the new generation Mustang, Ford teamed up with a select group of aftermarket shops and car builders to create some unique Mustang concept vehicles. Here are our nine favorite on display at the show:
MRT Mustang Fastback
This 2.3L EcoBoost-powered car is a street-legal track day road racing car that features some lightweight components to enhance the turbocharged powerplant’s output. It has a Vortech air-to-air intercooler, MRT 3-inch exhaust, and JMS boost controller. It also has an MRT custom hood with heat extractors, custom paint, and carbon fiber accents.
Chip Foose Mustang Concept
This elegant convertible has two-tone BASF green paint with orange accents and plenty of custom Foose goodies, including one-off 22-inch rims, MMD body accessories, and leather upholstery. The car was also lowered by custom Eibach springs, and the 2.3L is outfitted by a Full Race turbo.
“Outlaw” by Classic Design Concepts GT Convertible
Classic Design Concepts gave this convertible V8 a Ford Racing/Roush supercharger and Ford Racing cat-back exhaust system. The exterior features Classic Design Concepts’ “Outlaw” package, which includes upper performance grille with inserts and formed mesh, lower performance grille with formed mesh, front chin spoiler and splitter, hood struts, side rockers with vortex intake, side rocker splitter, rear deck lid spoiler, and exterior emblems and graphics.
Petty Edition Mustang GT by Petty Garage
The team at Petty’s Garage paid homage to their racing heritage, giving this GT the signature Petty Blue finish. And oh yeah–it’s fast. The team outfitted the 5.0L V8 with a Roush Roots-style supercharger, which bumps the power level over the 600 horsepower mark.
CGS Performance Products GT Fastback
CGS Performance Products put a lot of focus on chassis upgrades, so this Whipple-supercharged GT offers nimble handling and can stop on a dime.

Other suspension parts include Strange Engineering ST axles and third member link, Eibach front springs and sway bar, and Brembo monoblock brake calipers and 15-inch rotors.

Featuring a Roush-Yates 777 Hp “high roller” powertrain package with a Roush/Ford Racing supercharger, this daily driver has the soul of a race car.
