Features and Technical SpecsUnder the hood, the Giugiaro Mustang benefitted from a twin-screw supercharger that boosted the output of the GT’s stock 4.6L V8 to over 500 horsepower. Other notable performance upgrades include an all-aluminum radiator from Ford Racing, new mufflers and an X-pipe exhaust, a 95 mm mass air meter with a conical air filter, and a finely tuned engine with fuel injectors from the Ford GT. The vehicle’s refined chassis sits 1.5 inches lower than the stock Mustang and delivers sharper handling thanks to Ford Racing dynamic-tuned dampers, lowering springs and anti-sway bars.
StylingDespite these technical improvements, it was the radical styling of the Giugiaro Mustang that attracted the most attention. With a new interior, a curved glass panel bridging the windshield and rear window, and Lambo-style scissor doors, the Giugiaro Mustang sported a compact, aggressive look that is more Milan than Michigan. Other features of the Giugiaro Mustang include:
- Handmade three-piece taillights reminiscent of the first generation Mustang
- Dark brown horsehide seats and headrests
- Custom 20-inch rims outfitted with 275/40 tires in the front and 315/35s in the back
