Zero to 60 Design's Mustang GTT riffs on the upcoming GT's styling.

Zero to 60 Design has revealed a custom Ford Mustang that has been styled to look like the upcoming Ford GT supercar.

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?
