Australians completely love their utes, and these renderings of 1 based mostly on the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 showcase what would inevitably be probably the most outstanding of its sort ever launched.
Ever since Ford took the covers off the present Mustang Shelby GT500, fans have been going loopy over it – and for good cause. Powering the muscle automobile is a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that places out a formidable 760 hp and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission driving the rear wheels.
Arguably probably the most excessive manufacturing ute manufactured in Australia was the HSV GTSR Maloo. Powering this beast of a factor was a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 producing 583 hp and 545 lb-ft of torque, or 435 kW and 740 Nm in native figures. Those are actually outstanding numbers, particularly for a car that has so little weight over its rear wheels.
This render comes from designer Rostislav Prokop and grafts the entrance and rear fascias of the Mustang onto a Ford Falcon ute physique. With this in thoughts, the entrance finish encompasses a gaping huge grille and a big energy dome hood housing that highly effective 5.2-liter supercharged V8. At the rear there are regular Mustang taillights in addition to twin tailpipes, and whereas the concept of a ute with Mustang design options could sound unusual, we expect it really works fairly nicely.
