Post Germany's Reifen Koch tunes the Ford Mustang

Filed under: Aftermarket, Coupe, Performance, Etc., Europe, Ford, Design/Style


If you happen to have a stale 2010 Ford Mustang GT laying around, Reifen Koch may be able to spice it up for you. For €8,000 (a shave over $10,500 at current conversion rates), the company will slap on a Cervini body kit, composed of a revised front fascia, sills and the tail treatment seen above. The "Konquistador" package also includes a side-exit exhaust system, a full KW coilover kit and a hydraulic axle-lift system to help owners overcome pesky speed bumps and other obstacles, though it would seem those bits will cost you extra.

There's no word on whether the system can help you overcome the crippling knowledge that your pony remains powered by the stock boat-anchor 4.6-liter V8, however. For reasons that remain unclear, Reifen Koch left the lump untouched, meaning the kitted Mustang is still left with a comparatively anemic 315 horsepower. For reference, the 2013 Mustang GT pours 420 ponies to the back tires.

Speaking of rubber, the tuner seems to believe a smart set of wheels and tires are a suitable substitution for performance, saying their Mustang boasts "one of the greatest combinations of wheels and tires." Behold, the Ford Mustang Hyperbole Edition. Hit the jump for the full press blast.Continue reading Germany's Reifen Koch tunes the Ford Mustang

Ten thousand five hundred bucks and still the same engine?

I love a fast Mustang but this is nothing short of, 'a pig in a poke'.

I thought for that money, we'd all enjoy something FAST using innovative and artful German Engineering, not a re-skin.

BTW, I don't have 'pesky speed bumps and other obstacles' in my area.
