A 1965 Ford Mustang is the show star of the latest episode of Jay Leno’s Garage. The 1,000 HP isn’t the most badass thing about thing Mustang, but the meticulous work that’s gone into ensuring that every inch is just right.
THIS KIND OF ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS HARD TO MATCH, BUT THIS 1965 FORD MUSTANG IS JUST PERFECT
Vicious is this Mustang’s nickname and it is a creation of Jason Pecikonis and his team at Timeless Kustoms, based in California. This beauty took over 10,000 hours to be built and it’s a vehicle of what the company is capable do for its clients. It’s all neat; from the interior to the positioning of the vents for the twin-turbocharged V-8 engine.
When talking about performance, the blowers deliver up to 26 psi of charge pressure to the 5.1-liter V-8 nestled under the hood. The engine is matched up with a 6-speed, paddle-shifted sequential transmission. The Mustang is driving massive 19×13-inch wheels at the rear and a 19×11-in pair sits up front.
There’s also a rear diffuser inspired by the design used on a Ferrari F430, independent rear suspension borrowed from a Camaro, plus carbon-ceramic brake discs.
We’d hate to think how much all of this must have cost but in case you’re interested all you need to know is that it’s a million-dollar masterpiece.
