Driving a supercharged 700-hp Ford Mustang can make almost anyone feel invincible, but knowing buying the beast also helps children could make the driver of this muscle machine feel like a superhero. Galpin Auto Sports is building a customized Mustang for SPX Corporation, who will auction the special car off at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., with proceeds going to St. Jude Children’s hospital.
GAS is building the special ‘Stang to resemble the Mustang Boss 429, incorporating an all-metal body that stretches nine inches wider than a stock Mustang. Forgiato GT R wheels adorn the car and are fitted with Pirelli tires.
Custom red suede and black leather trim will decorate the interior, while a 1000-watt JL Audio system will provide the ultimate sound experience – that is if you’re not already trying to tune into the whine provided by a Ford Racing supercharger, which bumps the 5.0-liter V-8′s output above 700 hp. A Bassani Performance exhaust system will also be added.
Before the car crosses the auction block in Scottsdale in January 2012, the one-of-a-kind Mustang will tease Barrett-Jackson auction attendees in Las Vegas in September, and will tantalize spectators at car shows and events across the country, including SEMA 2011.
SPX is dedicated to raising money for St. Jude and hopes the Mustang will help fulfill its annual fundraising goal for the charity.
