The car is being developed by Artisan Performance in conjunction with Mustang tuner Randall Reed Ford. The car will carry the Reed Speed SE signature and will be sold as a ‘turn-key’ package through Randall Reed stores and select Ford dealerships around the country in the second half of the year.
You may remember Artisan as the company behind last year’s turbocharged IS-F SEMA show car, and the plan is to use the same tuning principles on the Lexus for the new Ford Mustang.
Some of the upgrades include a high-flow exhaust system with a race-spec catalytic converter, a custom intercooler and wastegate, and an obligatory ECU upgrade to handle the fuel mapping and boost control necessary for turbocharged cars. Customers will be able to opt for custom 20in forged alloy wheels and 14in brakes, and all the cars will come with a six-speed manual gearbox only.
