Ford Mustang GT-X Edition boasts 541 kW (and a higher top speed)…

German tuner PS-Sattlerei has whipped the wraps off the Ford Mustang GT-X Edition, a modified version of the Blue Oval’s 5,0-litre V8 muscle car. Boasting an upgraded interior, loads of carbon-fibre and extra oomph (and enhanced top speed!), the firm bills it as “the pony with a unique charisma”.

Dressed in Fury Orange paintwork, the Mustang GT-X Edition doesn’t want for attention, says the Bergkamen-based company. Adding to that is a “thundering” NAP-sourced stainless steel exhaust system, replete with carbon-fibre-coated tailpipes, which is coupled with an uprated version of the two-door’s V8, now featuring a supercharger. Thanks to the fitment of the latter and some choice software upgrades, the 5,0-litre engine’s peak outputs of 331 kW and 529 N.m have been hiked to whopping 541 kW and 800 N.m, sent to the rear wheels via a (purists rejoice!) six-speed manual ‘box.

PS-Sattlerei claims these figures have enhanced the top speed to 300 km/h (up from 250 km/h). Slightly revised, the speedo now indicates the 300 km/h marker, while a boost-pressure gauge has been added, too. How long it will take for the tuned Mustang to complete the all-important 0-100 km/h dash has, however, not yet been revealed.

According to PS-Sattlerei, the GT-X Edition’s party piece is its interior. Upholstered in black Nappa leather and Alcantara, the cabin is endowed with Mango Orange accents, such as contrast stitching and carbon-fibre appointments. A redesigned steering wheel, orange seatbelts and quilted mats are also included.

Riding on 20-inch alloys, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S rubber size 275/30 fore and 295/25 aft, the Mustang GT-X has also been fitted with a suspension lowering kit.
