Pure Vision Previews Wicked Ford GT40-Inspired Mustang
There's nothing these guy won't do to a Mustang, and their SEMA 2012 Martini-liveried and Indy Car-powered 1966 T-5R Fastback is enough to prove a point. Their latest mission, designing a Mustang for "the main man behind ACS Racing", is no less challenging.
To be more precise, Pure Vision Designs is currently busy with developing a 1970 Mustang Fastback inspired by the very successful Ford GT40s that won four 24 Hours of Le Mans races in the 1960s. Dubbed "Ferrari-killer", the GT40 is Ford's most famous motorsport effort, just like the Mustang is the Blue Oval's most renowned road car. Great mix, huh?
Since a special car requires a special engine as well, Pure Vision is planning on stuffing a John Kaase-built aluminum big block 520 cid V8 under the Mustang's hood. Amen to that! The huge GT40-like powerplant will take the yet undisclosed output to the wheels through a clutch less 6-speed manual.
That sounds awesome and were dying to find out more, but for the time being we'll have to settle for a preview of the 1970 Mustang, which clearly shows some GT40 pedigree with those dual racing white stripes.
