Funkmaster Flex Tweaks Ford Taurus SHO for SEMA 2009
Furthermore, the tuner used an HR spring kit to lower the vehicle and added a Billet Grille and custom door handles.
"Here's a vehicle that has so much history and stands on its own in terms of design and attitude," said Funkmaster Flex. "It's definitely different from anything that I've ever done before. It's much more subdued and doesn't scream at you in terms of its paint job and overall effect. I really took a vehicle that already had everything in terms of its styling and design and gave it a real stealth-like feel."
"Flex really created a design that veered away from what we traditionally expect from him," said Earl Lucas, designer of the 2010 Taurus SHO. "He is amazing in what he does and what he ultimately did to this vehicle. Anytime we get a chance to work with Flex it's a big thrill because of the perspective he brings. When you get a chance to work with someone who has perspective on what's new, what's hot and what's now, it's great.”
Funkmaster Flex, however, did not bring any improvements to the vehicle's performance, so the car is still equipped with the same 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine that generates an estimated 365 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 350 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,500 rpm.
