Here’s another tragically hip car on our rolling list of hot, custom Fords headed to this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas: a 2015 Ford Mustang convertible widebody from TS Designs.
Featuring 3-inch extensions to each of the rear wheel arches, this widebody Mustang by TS Designs ought immediately to grab a crowd with its curvy, exaggerated sculpture. That extra space also allows for wider-than-stock 13-inch wheels in the rear, meaning that no matter what, this pony should never be wanting for more grip.
Those wheels are 22-inch Forgiato Formula units, by the way, with 21-inch-by-9.5-inch wheels up front. Handling on the TS Designs SEMA Ford Mustang should further be aided by the addition of performance chassis components from Steeda Autosports. That includes adjustable toe links, subframe support braces, lowering springs (3-inch front, 2-inch rear), and Steeda sway bars. Powertrain enhancements remain minimal, encompassing a RaceTec intercooler, K&N air filter, and Magnaflow cat-back exhaust.
TS Designs hasn’t chased high horsepower figures like a lot of the other Ford-based concepts heading to SEMA – and that’s just fine by us. If the sixth-generation Ford Mustang were meant to be delegated solely to straight-line duty, it wouldn’t have gained an independent-rear suspension, and enhancing the look and cornering grip of the car with a few understated, practical touches seems like a great way to go.
TS Designs’ 2015 Ford Mustang will show alongside a whole slew of custom, one-off Ford concept cars from November 3rd through the 7th. Stay tuned for the latest SEMA news as it develops.
