Mustang GT V8 engine. Displacement was increased from 4.6 to 5.2 liters, and the engine was extensively reworked. Precision-machining of both cylinder heads, installing sport camshafts and reinforcing the valvetrain are part of the power treatment as is a belt-driven supercharger with generously dimensioned intercooler. A fully stainless-steel high-performance sport exhaust system with high-performance manifold and metal catalysts round out the engine conversion.
In this guise the eight-cylinder engine produces a proud maximum power output of 520 hp / 382.7 kW, up from stock 300 hp / 220 kW. The peak torque of 563 Nm is available at 4,730 rpm. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a modified six-speed manual gearbox and a sport clutch. Mustang GT 520 delivers exceptional performance: The sprint from 0 - 100 km/h takes just 4.2 seconds; top speed is 287 km/h. For an optimal supply of cooling and intake air the Munich tuner has also developed a special hood with large air dams.
The new front fascia was designed to be easily exchanged for the production bumper, thanks to its precise fit and the retention of the original mounting points. The large oval air dam ensures ample supply of cooling air for all radiators and coolers. The lateral openings were shaped to optimize the air flow for best possible brake cooling. The integrated front spoiler reduces lift on the front axle.
The Mustang wheel houses offer enough space to fit five-spoke wheels in size 9Jx20 in front with size 255/35 ZR 20 tires. The rear axle features size 10Jx20 wheels with tires in size 285/30 ZR 20.
The interior of the show car is hardly recognizable as belonging to a Ford Mustang: The exclusive fully leather black interior features highly contoured sport seats for improved lateral support, and, most of all, a multimedia sound system from JBL that was custom-tailored acoustically and visually to the interior of the Ford Mustang coupe.
The sound system is controlled by an Alpine IVA-W200Ri head unit connected to a digital PXA-H701 sound processor from the same manufacturer. It allows the driver of the GT 520 to shape the sound according to his or her personal preferences. Thanks to the easy-to-use iPod adapter "Drive&Play" from harman/kardon the driver can enjoy the music stored on his iPod in addition to listening to radio, CD's and DVD's.
The best was also barely good enough when it came to the integration of the loudspeakers: None other than installation specialist Renato Rivic from X-Dream-CarAudio implanted the distinguished products for JBL in the Ford Mustang. His futuristic shapes and choice of luxury materials add quite a bit more style to the interior. The vehicle now features a perfectly integrated real 5.1 surround system with top-shelf hardware from JBL. The speakers are located on the dashboard, in the doors, the space formerly occupied by the two rear emergency seats, and in the trunk: Two W15GTI subwoofers as well as three C508GTI, two GTO804 and one C608 GTI loudspeaker systems guarantee exceptional listening pleasure.
