They say good things come to those who wait.
It’s a cliché that will most certainly live true to members of Australia’s Supercar Club.
Despite waiting some 15-months for the privilege, Melbourne Supercar Club members were tonight (Thursday) introduced to the second of just two Right Hand Drive (RHD) Ford GTs in the world.
The exclusive feat undertaken by Melbourne tuning house Mustang Motorsport has converted the Supercar Club‘s 2004 Ford GT track car into a road legal, RHD monster.
Having no driver aids will probably scare off some punters, but the true enthusiasts will be enthralled by the GT’s aggressive demeanour and raucous engine note. Sitting on 315-wide tyres at the rear, the supercharged 5.4-litre V8 is good for 550BHP and moves from 0-100km/h in a smidgen over 3.3-seconds.
If that wasn’t enough, this specially tuned Saleen version can be legally driven on the road if you’re a member of the exclusive Supercar Club. CarAdvice went along to the Melbourne launch and the atmosphere associated with this vehicle was enthralling.
Prospective members and current members were itching at the chance to drive it. We have the next best thing though, click here to check out our Facebook page for a listen of the GT’s ground-trembling supercharged V8.
Stay tuned for a full story on the Supercar Club detailing the entire operation, along with how to become a member, in the coming week.
