Wide-track Ford Mustang is the most outrageous car you'll see this week
What the hell have I just seen?
When I heard that somebody had built a 'wide-track' Ford Mustang, I naturally assumed it would look like the old 911 Safari or something but no, I was wrong. It looks like a tank. This is a purpose-built hill climber with wheels that look like tracks. Awesome.
Weirdly, the ground clearance is the same as the standard car because the wheels are located alongside the car, instead of underneath it. Which is odd. But it works. Under the hood, you'll find a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 with two massive 67 mm turbos and a manual TH400 transmission. It puts out 1,200 bhp.
The owner of the wide-track Mustang decided to have a race against a stock Mustang of the same generation, equipped with the Performance Pack 1 wheels and tires. The standard Mustang copes with the mud, just, whereas the 'Mudstang' feels right at home.
The Mudstang is completely mad but I quite like it. It certainly cost a lot of money, and yeah it always feels a bit sacrilegious when you butcher a great car like that. But then again, the Mustang isn't rare or exclusive and (I presume) this outstanding build can be undone. Maybe.
