This Mustang DUD the Need for Speed Mustang will be the pace car for the final weekend of NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship race.
The “Need for Speed” Mustang was created solely for the movie and features a custom-designed wide body with unique 22-inch alloy wheels capable of supporting 900 horsepower, and larger intakes to feed its supercharged V8 engine. Also keeping the engine cool is the enlarged lower grille, with corner air intakes to cool the front brakes.
Designers also worked on reducing aerodynamic drag by using low-profile mirrors and extended rocker panels. The splitter has been redesigned to provide better handling at high speeds. The rear spoiler and diffuser were created to improve airflow, reducing drag and giving additional traction for high-speed acceleration.
The movie, starring Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Ramon Rodriguez, and Michael Keaton will debut in theaters March 14, 2014, while fans of the popular Electronic Arts video game series by the same name will be able to buy the latest “Need for Speed Rivals” version later this month.
