Ford Motor Company and Petty’s Garage have collaborated to roll out a new limited-edition 627bhp Mustang GT. Two versions of the Petty’s Garage Mustang GT will be built this year; the Stage 1 version will be limited to 100 units, while the even more exclusive Stage 2 version will total 43 units. The limited edition is being inspired by the popular Petty’s Garage Mustang GT on display at last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas.

Stage 1 Petty’s Garage Mustang GT will feature a host of custom modifications – both visual tweaks and under the hood. A Petty’s Garage fascia at the front imparts a unique look, while a reworked rear fascia features a center-exit exhaust and prominently showcased race-inspired spoiler. Inside, custom embroidered head restraints, floor mats and Richard Petty’s own signature on the dashboard set this Mustang GT apart from the rest. A Ford Racing/Roush supercharger, cold air intake, custom engine calibration and MagnaFlow exhaust system are fitted to Mustang GT’s 5.0L engine, boosting output to 627bhp. Power is delivered to the road by custom 20-inch Petty’s Garage HRE FlowForm wheels shod with Continental tires.

Stage 1 Mustang GT can be ordered in any color, with all unique bodywork painted to match in-house at Petty’s Garage. Along with the features found on the Stage 1 car, the Stage 2 version includes a Petty’s Garage Wilwood big brake upgrade and a complete Petty’s Garage custom two-tone paint job. Stage 2 Mustang GT will ride on Petty’s Garage HRE three-piece forged-aluminum wheels. Of the 43 Petty’s Garage Stage 2 Mustang GTs planned, only 42 remain, as rock ’n’ roll legend Brian Johnson has an order in for the first car. “This Mustang has just taken my breath away,” said Johnson, lead singer for AC/DC. “It really is one of the best cars I’ve ever driven. I didn’t have an American car, but I do now!”
