AC/DC's Brian Johnson Nabs First Petty's Garage Mustang GT

OK, my head’s fairly ready to explode. Forget the Hellcat Challenger, I now want the Highway to Hell Petty’s Garage Mustang GT. What’s that? Why am I calling it the Highway to Hell Petty’s Garage Mustang GT? Because the first one was bought by AC/DC singer Brian Johnson and it’s designed by The King. There’s nothing cooler than that. Plus, “Highway to Hell” is just one of the best driving songs ever. RELATED: Ford’s Supercharged SEMA Mustang GTs The car itself is pretty damn cool. It’s based on the Mustang Petty’s Garage showed at SEMA. It features a Ford Racing/Roush supercharger boosting output to 627 horsepower. That’s almost 50 percent more horsepower than the stock 435-horsepower Mustang GT. Other performance tweaks include a cold air intake, custom engine calibration and MagnaFlow exhaust system. It gets fitted with custom 20-inch Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels with Continental tires. RELATED: See More Photos of the Stock Ford Mustang GT Only 143 of these Mustangs will be offered. Hold out for the more limited run of Stage 2 that’s only going to include 43 units. The Stage 2 version gets a Wilwood big brake upgrade and a custom two-tone paint job. (Stage 1 can be ordered in any color you want.) The Stage 2 Mustang GT will be shod in Petty’s Garage HRE three-piece forged-aluminum wheels. Actually only 42 are going to be available. AC/DC’s Johnson snatched up a Stage 2 model - yet another reason to love the Aussie. He claims it’s his first American car ever. Who can blame him with all those awesome Holdens crawling all over Down Under? RELATED: See Photos of Another Racing Inspired Mustang GT500 The Petty’s Garage Stage 1 car carries an MSRP of $62,210, while the Stage 2 car comes in at $92,210. Orders for this limited-edition Mustang GT can be placed at any Ford dealership on a first-come, first-served basis. Throw in an AC/DC CD and I’m sold. _____________________________________ Click Here to Read the Original Article on BoldRide
