It looks like the bastard child of a Mustang GT and a Ferrari. Some angels look good but others look like A$$... I still say

Mustang goes Italian with special concept for L.A. show
Posted 11/28/2006 12:54:06 AM by motortrend_online

Automotive icons such as the Mustang have long captured the attention of Fabrizio Giugiaro, Italdesign’s styling director. So in early 2005, when Giugiaro pitched his idea to work his magic on a Mustang with the help of his legendary father Giorgetto Giugairo, Ford group vice president, Design and chief creative officer J Mays was only too happy to oblige.

Fabrizio Giugiaro led the 2-D design process on the concept and delivered a complete exterior model in four months. Visually, the concept appears more compact than the production Mustang, thanks to a reduction of the rear overhang and a signature Giugiaro design que of tapering the angles on the car to the limit of its mechanical outlines.

The bright orange concept is wider than the production version and its longer hood and barely visible trunk lend it a fastback look at the side view angle. Among the notable exterior and interior design touches outlined by Fabrizio Giugiaro:

The interior – featuring a dramatic instrument panel that sweeps the width of the car; circular gauges that project from behind the steering wheel; dark brown horsehide-covered headrests with horse logo accents; and seat cushions and backrests elaborately upholstered in dark brown mottled horse hides.

The single curved glass panel that bridges the windshield and rear window, serving as the concept’s roof. Produced by Solutia of Detroit, the panel is made from a special type of crystal that filters out 100 percent of UVA rays while providing unfettered vista views.

Doors hinged at the base of the upright A-pillar and open vertically at the touch of a button.

Bespoke taillights, which are three separate elements as found on the 1964 Mustang – but reinterpreted into a more dramatic arrow shape that links to the louver panels that replace the rear side windows.

The visible curl that sweeps into the crest of the concept’s carbon fiber fenders, hinting at tail fins that defined American cars of the ‘50s.

The unique 20-inch rims, fitted with 275/40 tires on the front and larger 315/35 tires on the rear.

While the exterior design is clearly much of the concept’s story, this Mustang is all business beneath its Italian exterior thanks to a powertrain and chassis enhanced in conjunction with Ford Racing – the outfit responsible for Ford Motor Company motorsports development and operations.

Ford Racing’s race-prepared version of the Mustang, the FR500C, a turn-key race car sold to privateers, provided the inspiration for the Mustang by Giugiaro concept’s performance and handling.

For the concept, Ford Racing added an intercooled twin-screw supercharger to the all-aluminum 4.6-liter 3-valve V-8 engine in the production Mustang GT. Additional improvements included fuel injectors from the Ford GT and a unique engine calibration. The engine’s air intake was increased and its exhaust performance enhanced by new Ford Racing mufflers and an X-pipe. An upgraded radiator was also added. The upgrades helped the concept’s powerplant to reach an estimated 500 horsepower.

Under the car, the chassis tuning was accomplished with a tailored Ford Racing Handling Pack, available through Ford Racing for the Mustang GT. The package adds new Dynamic-tuned dampers, lowering springs and anti-sway bars. The changes give the concept a lower stance and help sharpen its handling response. The car rides approximately 1.5 inches lower than the production Mustang GT.

Looks like the Camaro won't have much to worry about in 2010 if they produce this pile of crap. American muscle cars aren't supposed to look European! This is one of the ugliest concepts I've seen in a long time. I'm trying to find something on it that I like and the closest I come to liking anything is the front fascia. NOT THE HOOD, just the very very front.

Lame.

One more thing...

Can you imagine how expensive it would be to replace that glass if a rock from a truck nailed you?

No thanks.

Talking

idk but i hate this ****in ugly thing, the other mustang concept was ugly but this one is even worse. Well at least I know one thing they are not impressing anybody with it and the Camaro will still walk all over it no matter what and if Ford does produce it I hope they fall on their face. I would then laugh my ass off at Ford!!

I like the car also.

I hate conservative car designs that are intended to please everyone. For example, the Viper used to have a wild body design, but now it is conservative and boring looking.

i have seen it on a bunch of stang forums, and i hate it. i really think they should kind of leave the mustang alone now, they really got it looking good finally, and focus more on the hurricane/boss motors, so they actually can compete with the new camaro.

I saw it this past Saturday at the LA Auto Show - wasn't that impressed with it… It looks better in print than live.

It was pretty good. I went to the guy behind the info desk and said, "I'm probably crazy for even asking, but do you have ANY brochures on the new 'Maro?"

He looked at me and said "Yeah - you're crazy," then bent down, opened a cupboard and pulled out poster which he proceeded to hand to me.

I walked around with it in my hands until I got to the Nitto display and got one of their cool bags to put it in. Before that, my Bro kept asking me if I wanted to put the poster in his bag. I kept saying no - no one was gonna touch my Camaro poster but me (ain't I a stinker?).
