While it may not be a purist’s cup of tea, for anyone else that’s in love with the vintage Mustang but does not want the shady reliability and performance of an old car, it might qualify as a dream restomod. Albeit a virtual one, as – quite unfortunately – there is no indication this black beauty will ever become real.

But what a glorious ride it might have been, complete with the shiny black finish, custom widebody kit, lowering suspension setup, rad side exhaust, and the traditional Mag wheels.
