SpeedKore creates $145K carbon fiber 2017 Ford Mustang for SEMA [Video]

The Ford Mustang just got a little bit slimmer in its new carbon fiber body.

Ford and SpeedKore unveiled a carbon fiber Mustang, which weighs about 500 pounds lighter than a stock Mustang, during the 2016 SEMA event in Las Vegas this week. TFL’s Roman Mica talked to Sean Smith from SpeedKore, the company that installed the carbon fiber body, to learn more about the new vehicle.

The carbon fiber Mustang is the first one Ford had built. It’s also not just a wrap around the body – it has a real carbon fiber body.

Smith said there are plans to make more of this type of Mustang, which he estimates will start around $145,000.

One of the hardest parts of installing the carbon-fiber body was making sure the weave of the carbon fiber lined up around the car. By lining it up, the weave runs in one direction and adds to the aesthetic look.
