It's not that often that we get to experience that "new car smell" here in our showroom, after all, brand new cars don't exactly put the "classic" in Streetside Classics. But every once in a while, a late-model car comes along that's so darn impressive it's an instant classic. This 2018 Ford Mustang "Track King" was built by the pros at Petty's Garage specifically to steal the show at SEMA, and it highlights "The King's" recent line of limited-edition, late-model productions that are giving builders like Roush, Saleen, and Hennessey a run for their money. Built from a Champion's mold, this race-themed beauty from the mind of Richard Petty is dressed to impress and packing a unique 2.3L EcoBoost motor fitted with a 62mm turbocharger that can register a staggering 700+ base horsepower. And with only 626 miles on the clock, this exclusive Pony is basically still in the wrapper, ready to break out.
One of the best reasons to own a special edition car like this is that it instantly sticks out from the crowd. It starts with the unique BASF R-M "Track King" Ghost Silver finish contrasted with Petty Blue (what else?) and light silver accents throughout the body. The custom build used the dynamic curves of the modern 6th generation Mustang as the foundation of the build, and coupled that already dramatic styling with the addition of a hand-crafted wide-body kit and Arrow Composites' carbon fiber side skirts, front splitter, and Petty's Garage rear spoiler to match. Cervini's Auto Designs provided the custom Petty's Garage grille inserts and rear fascia, and Petty's Garage acid-etched rear windows, a custom windshield banner, and Petty Blue-painted Brembo brake calipers were added for further pop. The result is a Mustang with unmatched curb appeal, and you can see how thoughtful the designers were over every single inch of this amazing car. Ever since it dropped jaws at SEMA, this beauty has only been shown and barely driven, so everything is factory fresh with a miniscule 626 actual miles on the clock. Yes, it's that fresh!
Inside is a loaded GT premium Mustang interior that remains so new and unblemished that it smells like the factory floor. Katzkin black leather with suede inserts looks and feels like it belongs in an exotic supercar with a six-figure price tag, and the Petty Blue stitching reminds everyone that this is "The King's" domain. Mr. Petty's trademark continues on quite literally with his genuine signature on the dash, the Petty's Garage logo in the headrests, floor mats, and illuminated door sills, and the custom "T/K" engraved plaque above the glove compartment. Beyond all the true collector's items, this Mustang is also desirable because it has all the modern amenities you could want - power windows/locks/mirrors/seats, cruise control, keyless entry & ignition, electric rear defogger, dual zone automatic climate control system, and heated & cooled leather seats just to name a few. The touchscreen infotainment system means you not only get a terrific sounding Shaker AM/FM/Satellite/AUX stereo, but it also has plenty of useful features like navigation, Bluetooth, and a back-up camera. There's even voice-activated navigation, although be sure to speak up over the roar of the engine. Plus, the power steering can be adjusted between touring and performance driving right from the cockpit, and the contoured leather seats mean you can hit the corners as aggressively as you please. A modern machine also means modern safety with dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes, so go ahead and stand on it with the confidence of Ford's top-of-the-line safety standards. Out back the seats were deleted to reduce weight, and the trunk is very spacious, so this Mustang is road trip ready.
Ford's EcoBoost 4-cylinder motor has been a revelation for the brand, and it provides great performance and unbelievable efficiency in its stock configuration. But this isn't some Focus rental car here, this is a Mustang with Richard Petty's legendary name on it, so whatever's under the hood better be powerful, regardless of displacement. If someone would've told me 10-15 years ago that a tiny 2.3L 4-cylinder could be calibrated to output 700+ horsepower, I would've laughed them off as crazy. But lo and behold, the addition of a Precision Turbo 62mm snail with an upgraded turbocharger kit and a custom Petty's Garage calibration brings the little 4-banger to life with enough power to compete with all the big boys on the road. Not only is the motor powerful, it's incredibly dependable and fuel-efficient too, and can be serviced by an Ford dealer across the world. A Petty-built high-performance 6-speed automatic transmission sits behind the engine and shifts smoothly, while Ridetech fully adjustable front and rear coilovers, Ford Performance axles, Petty's Garage front and rear swaybars, and Petty's Garage upgraded
