Cadillac Coupe De Ville Heads for SEMA 2011

Cadillac Coupe De Ville Heads for SEMA 2011 - Muscle Cars BlogA Harrington Park couple spent six years customizing a Cadillac that is one of only two Australian creations to be among the top 50 at the world’s biggest custom car show. Dubbed Wild Cad, the car is currently on its way to participate at the Showcase of Kustoms Motorama and will also be attending the SEMA show this November.

Mario and Catriona Colalillo, creators of the Wild Cad, hope for their one-off 1955 Coupe De Ville to grab the D-elegance category.

The Caddy boasts a 7.4-litre 454 big block Chevy engine powering a Turbo 400 transmission and 9-inch rear end, a ‘55 Desoto grille, and fully exposed chassis rails. Inside, the Wild Cad features Thunderbird seats and a center-mounted ‘59 Chevy instrument cluster. The special exterior paint is estimated at AU$200,000, bornrich.org reports.

“I had people ringing up saying: We can’t get him (Winfield) – how did you get him to come to Australia?” stated Colalillo for the local media. “There’s a lot of features on the car that are out of the ordinary. I’m still getting used to having free weekends. You have got to throw everything at it in the end. It’s like building five cars at once.”

He also estimated he had spent thousands of hours on building the car over the six years period. “The last two years got to be a bit of an obsession,” he said.

The Colalillos hope to sell the Wild Cad while traveling the custom car circuit, as ZZ Top lead singer Billy Gibbons, basketballer Shaquille O’Neal, and Metallica’s James Hetfield have already expressed their interest in the car.

Roush supercharger system for the 2011 Mustang 5.0 - Muscle Cars BlogLIVONIA, Mich. (August 26, 2010) – Since the day Ford announced the new 5.0L engine for the 2011 Mustang, people have been asking, “What is ROUSH® going to do with that engine? When will the ROUSHcharger® be available?”

The answer to those questions is finally available. ROUSH has engineered a 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit that can boost the horsepower on the 2011 Mustang upwards of 550 horsepower on stock pump gasoline with more than 470 lb.-ft. of torque. This 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit (part number 421140) has a suggested retail price of $5,999.00 and is available for shipment now.

Many people got their first look at the 5.0L ROUSHcharger in the ROUSH display at Mustang Alley during the Woodward Dream Cruise. The display car got many double takes as people walked by, looked, and then realized that car was, in fact, a 2011 Mustang with a ROUSHcharger installed.

Based on the popular TVS2300 ROUSHcharger, the 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit comes with a 90mm pulley and generates an estimated seven pounds of boost. Included in the kit are 47 lb. fuel injectors, high-flow fuel rails, a high-flow ROUSH air lid, and a twin 60mm throttle body. The heavy-duty ROUSH tensioner is included for the first FEAD belt.

This Tuner Kit includes a 90-day parts warranty, but does not come with a calibration or maintain the Ford factory engine warranty. Professional tuning and installation is recommended.

“While the new Ford five-liter engine offers amazing performance right from the factory, and the new ROUSHcharger will kick it up a level,” said Jack Roush, motorsports legend and chairman of ROUSH Enterprises. “Our engineering team has worked hard to deliver a product that will satisfy the demands of the ROUSH customer on an extremely tight deadline, and they have come up with another great solution for a powertrain upgrade.

Orders for the 5.0L ROUSHcharger Tuner Kit are now being accepted by calling 1-800-59-ROUSH. Information can be found online at www.ROUSHperformance.com.

There will be a 5.0L ROUSHcharger Kit available this fall that will come complete with a ROUSH calibration and full warranty. Pricing and details to come.

Ford Racing supercharger pumping 5.0 V8 up to 624 HP - Muscle Cars BlogDEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ — Ford Racing has announced today the availability of a new, 2.3L twin-screw supercharger for the 2011 Mustang. When mated to the all-new 5.0L 4V TiVCT V8 engine, this 50-state-legal powertrain, can produce 624 hp SAE @ 6900 rpm and 536 lb-ft SAE @ 4700 rpm. This is the first Twin-screw unit available to consumers.

The new supercharger is Ford Racing’s first power upgrade component for the new 5.0 engine. It was developed by Ford Racing engineers, in close collaboration with Ford Motor Company’s powertrain engineers, Team Mustang, and key partners in Roush and Whipple. The supercharger is being seen for the first time Saturday at the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in Ford’s Mustang Alley display.

“Superchargers are the ultimate in power upgrades for Mustang enthusiasts,” says George Goddu, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager. “Calibration for a modern V8 engine, especially one with twin-independent variable cam timing, is incredibly complex. Production calibration for the 5.0 engine took 19 months. Having that knowledge base to work from is a huge advantage.

2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 - Muscle Cars BlogMONTEREY, Calif., Aug. 13, 2010 – Ford gave the green light only once before: In 1968, management approved a special Mustang – a car that sacrificed nothing in its quest to be the best all-around road-going performance machine ever created by Ford Motor Company. That car became the 1969 Mustang Boss 302, and it remains one of the world’s most sought-after examples of American performance.

Forty-two years later, Ford has given the green light again.

The team of Ford engineers, designers and stylists – all Mustang enthusiasts to the core – that created the groundbreaking 2011 Mustang GT has distilled a new model to its purest form, strengthening, lightening and refining each system to create a race car with a license plate. Its name: the 2012 Mustang Boss 302.

“The decision to build a modern Boss was not entered into lightly,” said Derrick Kuzak, group vice president, Global Product Development. “The entire team at Ford felt the time was right and with the right ingredients, the world-class 2011 Mustang could support a successful, race-bred, worthy successor to the original Boss 302. For us that meant a production Mustang that could top one of the world’s best – the 2010 BMW M3 – in lap times at Laguna Seca. We met our expectations.” Hit Read More for the full press release.
