Hitting the drag strip in an Antimatter Blue Ford Mustang GT, equipped with a set of lightweight Forgestar flow-formed D5 Beadlock drag racing wheels, might be one of the best ways to spend the weekend
If there ever was a name for an exterior finish on a vehicle that us geeks would love, then it would be Antimatter Blue. It sounds like the color choice for a Starship Cruiser or a Planet Destroyer, let alone for a car. However, since this finish is applied to an epitome of American muscle, a Ford Mustang GT, it fits perfectly even on a terrestrial vehicle like this.
To make matters even more interesting, this particular vehicle comes with a set of Forgestar D5 and D5 Beadlocks makes it a damn fine looking vehicle. In turn, this modern American muscle car is ready to tear it up on the drag strip. Or at the traffic lights. Whatever suits you.
Performance wise, the Ford Mustang GT is a beast. As it should be. The vehicle comes with a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine with port fuel injection, providing a whopping 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque. It’s all connected to a 10-speed SlectShift automatic transmission, featuring a wide-ratio span and optimized gear spacing, improving responsiveness and performance during acceleration runs. In turn, you’ll be able to hit 0-62mph (0-100km/h) in as low as 4.6 seconds.
Add the usual luxury amenities, LED lights, the snazzy new all-digital instruments, but also, the rather impressive active valve performance exhaust system, showcasing quad exhaust tips – so you can wake your neighbors up during those early-morning dashes to the airport, catching your redeye to your next business venture. For some, a perfect two-door coupe that can do the daily driving and track tearing it up equally well.
This Antimatter Blue Mustang GT comes with Forgestar D5 wheels in the front, sized 18×5 and D5 Beadlock wheels in the rear, sized 17×10, giving it a perfect track-ready wheel/tire configuration. Furthermore, the fronts come with a Gloss Black and Polished Aluminum finish, as do the rears, with the exception of the Gloss Black beadlock fasteners. A clean finish that suits most drag strip visiting Mustang owners perfectly.
