Ford Mustang в классической лемановской ливрее Gulf можно будет купить. Правда, если у вас есть желание переплатить в четыре раза.

Построена очередная итерация масл-кара с реверансами в сторону истории марки Ford силами специалистов ателье Brown Lee Performance из Теннесси. В этом году мы уже слышали о "Мустанге" с классической сине-оранжевой окраской – его анонсировало тюнинг-бюро Roush. Но на этот раз кастомайзеры утверждают, что смогли договориться с Gulf Oil и подписать все необходимые лицензионные соглашения. Так что их спорткар носит фирменную окраску настолько законно, насколько это вообще возможно.

Эта ливрея вошла в историю мирового автоспорта в конце шестидесятых – после побед окрашенного в этом стиле Ford GT40 на трассе "24-х часов Ле Мана". И Mustang в этом же "костюмчике", который Brown Lee Performance представит 18 августа на Конкурсе элегантности в Пеббл Бич, будет выставлен на продажу – по цене в 139 995 долларов. Весомая сумма, учитывая, что стандартный Mustang GT с пятилитровым V8 продается у штатовских дилеров всего за 35 630 долларов.

Однако, тюнеры предлагают переплатить не только за лицензионную раскраску: спорткар прошел целый комплекс доработок. К примеру, его восьмицилиндровый компрессорный мотор развивает чуть более 800 л.с. и 915 Нм крутящего момента, а сагрегатируют его в Brown Lee Performance хоть с 10-диапазонным автоматом, хоть с 6-ступенчатой механикой.

Помимо этого, усовершенствованный "Мустанг" обзавелся более суровой подвеской с уменьшенным дорожным просветом, карбоновыми аэродинамическими элементами на кузове (включая, к примеру, сплиттер, пороги, диффузор и так далее) и кое-какими другими мелкими деталями.

Ателье собирается выпустить лишь 119 экземпляров Gulf Heritage Edition Mustang в кузовах купе и кабриолет, и сопроводит каждый собственной гарантией на три года или 36 тысяч миль пробега.

Brown Lee Performance OFFICIAL Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition
LEGENDARY performance, iconic FORD LeMans livery, & 800 horsepower to celebrate 50 years!

Morrison, Tennessee (August 12, 2019) — We have all heard the inspiring story of how the Ford GT40 hit the track in 1966 and went on to secure four consecutive victories for the Blue Oval. Fast forward 50 years to the present and few racing liveries remain as iconic as the blue and orange Gulf Oil paint scheme worn by both the 1968 and 1969 winning Ford GT40. Today, we honor the feats of teamwork and determination displayed by the winning ’68 and ‘69 teams half a century ago with the arrival of the Brown Lee Performance OFFICIAL Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition, which is being introduced at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday, August 18, 2019.

The Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition is derived from three core elements – Power. Speed. And a Legacy. Under the hood of this performance machine is a supercharged 5.0L Coyote V8 boasting an industry leading 800-horsepower and a vision-blurring 675 lb-ft of torque. This tire shredding power is fed through Ford’s 10-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission and can be had in either a coupe or convertible.

In addition to power, the Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition receives a completely new performance suspension, carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser, and wicker bill spoiler. But more notably, the car receives a full custom painted Gulf Oil licensed exterior racing livery identical to that which was displayed on the ’68 and ’69 GT40 and more recently, the 2019 Ford GT. When an owner climbs inside their limited production, licensed Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition, they will be greeted by an interior just as impressive as the engine upgrades and exterior paint scheme. Gulf orange and blue accent a full black leather and alcantara cabin to make this car truly feel special inside and out.

“We are incredibly proud to have this opportunity to honor the Ford and Gulf racing legacy in such a special build.” said Global Specialty Vehicle Manager of Brown Lee Performance, Brock Patterson. “With over 800 horsepower carrying this licensed icon from 0-60 mph in under 3.5 seconds, the Gulf Heritage Edition Mustang pays homage to the accomplishments of the Ford and Gulf racing teams from 50 years ago, on all levels.”

Production will be limited to 119 units globally - The 119 serial numbers signifyBe the 50-year anniversary of the ‘69 24 Hours of LeMans victory.
