What do you do if you’re looking for a 2014 Ford Mustang GT in yellow? Sorry folks, Ford doesn’t offer that color as an option. We suppose the next best thing would be to build your own, right? Well, that’s precisely what the Vortech team accomplished this year for the 2013 Specialty Equipment Manufacturer Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 5th – 8th. This year, the Vortech project ponycar, “Yellow Jacket,” is debuting at the 2013 SEMA auto show. It’s equipped with a rockin’ 5.0-liter Coyote V-8, topped with a Vortech V-3 Si supercharging system feeding 7.5 psi of boost. This exclusive yellow 2014 Ford Mustang GT is capable of a whopping 605 horsepower, and a stump-pulling 473 lb-ft of torque.
“As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang,” Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group, said. “We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance.”
To give the 2014 Ford Mustang GT Yellow Jacket better handling performance, Vortech installed a powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension package. Doing the stopping are Baer 6S six-piston calipers at all four corners. Keeping the Mustang planted are a set of iForged Icon three-piece wheels, 20x9-inch up front and 20x11-inch out back. Of course, those wheels are wrapped in Falken Azenis FK453 tires (P275/40/20 front; P315/35/20 rear).
The Yellow Jacket also sports exterior and interior features that make it ever more distinctive. A 3D Carbon’s Boy Racer kit was installed to give the car a more aggressive look, while a carbon-fiber cowl induction hood helps reduce weight and draw more air into the engine bay. Carbon accents from TruFiber help lighten the car and give it a unique look, while a Webasto electronic sunroof gives the passengers a look at the sky. What’s most visually impressive is the custom paint supplied by DuPont that gives the 2014 Ford Mustang GT a color otherwise unobtainable from the factory.
Stay tuned, we’re sure to have more pictures and information about this car from the 2013 SEMA auto show in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 5th – 8th. We’ll be ever more interested in this 2014 Ford Mustang GT if we get the chance to see it on a race track.
