New age Mof­fat Mus­tang

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

Fancy your very own brand new Al­lan Mof­fat Mus­tang? It’s a tan­ta­lis­ing propo­si­tion, and some­thing which will be avail­able in the sec­ond half of 2016 as Mus­tang Mo­tor­sport pre­pares to re­lease the Al­lan Mof­fat Edi­tion Mus­tang.

The artist’s im­pres­sion shown here of­fers a taste of what to ex­pect, but Mus­tang Mo­tor­sport boss Craig Dean says the Al­lan Mof­fat Edi­tion Mus­tang has been cre­ated not only to re­flect the ap­pear­ance of Mof­fat’s leg­endary Boss 302 Trans Am Mus­tang, but also its per­for­mance.

To that end, among the var­i­ous per­for­mance up­grades that will be avail­able is a 560kW su­per­charged op­tion.

AMC un­der­stands that Mus­tang Mo­tor­sport’s spe­cial edi­tion Mof­fat Mus­tang has been some six years in the mak­ing.

“I was do­ing it in 2010 with Al­lan,” Craig Dean ex­plains. “But then Ford called him in to be­come an am­bas­sador for them. So it be­came a bit com­pli­cated. That was fine; we just put it on hold, and four or five months ago I re­vis­ited the idea.”

Like the orig­i­nal hand-built Kar Kraft Trans-Am, the Al­lan Mof­fat Edi­tion Mus­tang has been de­signed for go as much as show. Mus­tang Mo­tor­sport has called on its 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence run­ning Mus­tangs in tar­mac rally com­pe­ti­tion to de­velop a range of op­tion pack­ages to suit dif­fer­ent re­quire­ments.

“The goal with this car is to be a good, fair dinkum track car,” Dean says.

The Al­lan Mof­fat Edi­tion Mus­tang is set for a mid-Septem­ber re­lease.
