Brown Lee Performance solo construirá 119 unidades de este Mustang de temática retro.

Este año en Pebble Beach no verás uno, sino dos Ford Mustang con la icónica decoración azul y naranja de Gulf. La semana pasada, Roush mostró una imagen a medias de un unidad única construida para un cliente especial, pero aún no hemos visto todo el carro. Hoy, tenemos otro Mustang Gulf, preparado en Tennessee por Brown Lee Performance, y este si puedes comprar. Siempre y cuando no tengas inconvenientes en gastar $139,995 en un Mustang GT 2020.

De hecho, eso es un tremendo dineral para un carro como este, lo que se obtiene es más que una decoración emblemática en un vehículo moderno. Entre otras cosas, Brown Lee Performance dice que es un 'Mustang Gulf Heritage' oficial, aparentemente gracias a un acuerdo de licencia con Gulf Oil que imita la pintura del Ford GT40 ganador de las 24 Horas de Le Mans en 1968 y 1969. Como tal, el Mustang también porta la marca Gulf, aunque lamentamos la ausencia de rines anaranjados.

En cuanto a lo que hay debajo de la decoración, se puede decir que no hay ausencia de potencia que lamentar. El V8 5.0 litros del GT fue equipado con un sobrealimentador produciendo no menos de 800 caballos de fuerza que pueden pasar por una caja automática de 10 velocidades, o por una manual de seis. La suspensión fue modificada pero no sabemos cómo, aparte de que es una 'suspensión deportiva' que reduce el despeje con el suelo, no nos dieron más detalles. Los complementos de carrocería incluyen un divisor delantero de fibra de carbono y faldones laterales, un alerón trasero con 'labio Gurney', un difusor trasero y, por supuesto, una insignia especial que lo identifica como un vehículo de producción limitada.

Su tuneador, Brown Lee Performance es una rama de Brown Lee Ford, un concesionario de la marca en Morrison, Tennessee. Se fabricarán 119 Mustangs Gulf Heritage Edition, disponibles en versión coupé o convertible y cada uno de ellos estará cubierto por la garantía regular de Ford de 3 años o 36,000 millas. El carro hará su primera aparición pública el domingo 18 de agosto en el Concours d’Elegance de Pebble Beach 2019.

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.”

Interested in owning one of these special builds? The Brown Lee Performance Gulf Heritage Mustang – Limited Edition costs $139,995, which includes a 2019/2020 Ford Mustang GT Premium. 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. Each Gulf Heritage Edition Mustang comes with a 3 year/36,000 mile limited warranty as well as an official letter from Gulf Oil congratulating the owner with signatures from Gulf and Brown Lee Performance executives.
