2005 Foose Stallion
Together, Foose Design and Unique Performance are launching a line of limited edition muscle cars based on the current generation Ford Mustang.
Unique Performance and Foose Design announced a formal agreement to create limited edition performance cars. The two companies initially launched a series of super cars based on 1960's era vehicles and this is their first production vehicle program.
Chip Foose of Foose Design penned the Stallion Mustang's bold styling. Unique Performance, a leader in limited production American muscle cars, will assist in the engineering and development of modifications, as well as manage all marketing activities.
The Stallion is scheduled to be available through select Ford dealers nationwide in early 2006. Production will be capped at only 3,000 per year with an MSRP projected to begin at $38,000. ''I've always dreamed of creating a limited edition streetcar,'' stated Chip Foose, president of Foose Design. ''Ford's Mustang is an extraordinary platform for a custom muscle car. We wanted to stay true to what makes the Mustang special but, to create a distinctive new look, we revised the styling cues to include a custom front grille and hood, new front and rear fascias, added some discreet scoops and lowered the stance. Each car will include custom designed wheels and interior touches. It's the ultimate cruisin' machine that stands out from the crowd.''
This exciting program began when Foose was bombarded with requests to recreate his stunning one-off vehicles. His company, Foose Design, is not structured to build production cars while Unique and Tecstar are experts in this field.
''We've stiffened the chassis, uncorked the exhaust, tightened the handling, improved the induction and upgraded the stopping power. Working closely with Ford Racing, we plan to offer even more performance options sometime next year.''
