Zero to 60 Design's Mustang GTT riffs on the upcoming GT's styling.
Dubbed GTT (Grand Turismo Tribute), its bodywork has been heavily remodeled. The hood is stretched forwards to a sharp edge, and below is a gigantic air intake. Up above, a pair of large extractors of a similar shape to those on the GT are molded into the hood. The fenders are stretched out, too.
Massive side skirts become scallops in the doors, feeding air into a pair of huge inlets ahead of the rear wheels, recalling the aero tunnels on the GT. At the back, the center panel riffs on the GT’s exhaust surround, and there’s a large, flat wing hung off the top edge. An enormous diffuser housing a pair of drainpipe exhausts finishes the car off.
Under the hood, a ProCharger supercharger has been bolted onto the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 motor, which is controlled by a PCT Performance management system and realizes at least 800 horsepower (597 kilowatts).
The GTT rolls on 22-inch HPE Performance wheels, wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero rubber. Brembo brakes and Eibach Pro-Street-S suspension complete the running gear.
According to Zero to 60, the GTT “is not just another pretty show car; both track ready and programmed for all-out competition performance, the GTT is also a comfortable touring sports car ready for a road trip to Vegas.” It’s a bold claim - that combination has eluded many an OEM.
The GTT will debut at SEMA, where Corona, California-based Zero to 60 will also show off four other customs. The company has plans to put the GTT into limited production through a small number of Southern California Ford dealers from early next year.
Designer and Zero to 60 CEO Kenny Pfizer, formerly of West Coast Customs and Foose Designs, said: “Zero to 60 sought to create an aspirational vehicle that demonstrates the performance, control, and excitement that is possible with a modern muscle car. We have poured our passion and innovation into the GTT in an effort to deliver a truly amazing driving experience.”
Another bold claim. So what do you think - is this a successful fusion of muscle car and supercar, or hackneyed tie-in?
