In honor of their status as OE tire supplier for the 2005 Mustang, BFGoodrich(R) Tires, maker of The World's Hottest Street TiresTM, has created a one-off, custom version of this milestone vehicle. This car has been imbued with a level of style, handling, power, creature comforts and exclusivity that make it the most desirable street-legal Mustang anywhere -- The World's Hottest Mustang!
Beginning Aug. 20, the head-turning Mustang will be on display at Detroit's world-famous Woodward Dream Cruise enthusiast event. Sweepstakes registration is open to all those who visit the BFGoodrich area, located at the Woodward Hunter Shell on the east side of Woodward Avenue between 13 and 14 Mile Road. Those not present can log onto bfgoodrichtires.com/winmustang beginning Aug. 20 for a chance to win the one-of-a-kind version of this American classic car. Registrants must be 18 or older and are limited to one entry per week per person until the sweepstakes ends on Dec. 31, 2005. The grand prize winner of the Mustang will be announced early next year.
The World's Hottest Mustang was penned by today's hottest automotive designer: Chip Foose. Chip is the design guru of The Learning Channel's Rides and Overhaulin'. Chip designed the original "Eleanor" for the film "Gone in 60 Seconds" and, this year, won his third Ridler Award, the most sought after prize in the world of custom automobile design.
Fabrication and performance enhancements have been carried out by Unique Performance, Farmer's Branch, Texas, builders of the limited-production Shelby GT500E as seen in an episode of Rides.
