When you have a Lamborghini, but Mustang is life. We still... can't get our heads around this one.
One crazy guy took modifying his car to a whole new level when he seemingly woke up one morning and wanted to turn his perfectly good Lamborghini Gallardo into... a Ford Mustang.
Now we have to admit, the level of workmanship that went into this build is impressive, but it still begs the question: why?!
Above: Blueprints, you know, in case you want to follow in this man's footsteps.
Above: Impressive engineering work.
Codenamed "The Tractorri", a Lamborghini Gallardo's engine, drivetrain, and interior was transplanted to a 2007 Mustang body.
Above: Interior is retained from the lambo.
The build also involved using two Mustangs for parts and thousands of hours of labor fabricating custom one-off parts.
Above: Body panels from the mustang are grafted onto a modified mustang chassis.
The Tractorri Gallardo Mustang uses the mid-engined all-wheel-drive powertrain, a 520 horsepower V-10 monster.
Above: The car is powered by the 520hp V10.
The rear of the car was reworked with custom fabricated parts to imitate the Gallardo's rear-end, to further add to the one-off design of the car. The Tractorri Gallardo was on display at the 2007 SEMA show for all to see.
The finished result is certainly impressive, and no doubt handles and performs far better than the Mustang part of its donor, considering it retains all the same suspension, driveline and brakes.
The exterior is finished in a custom metallic candy apple red.
The main give away for a casual observer would be the lambo wheels and huge brakes... oh and the rear engine.
Above: Looks like a 'stang from this angle.
Above: The rear looks somewhat awkward, where it retains the Lamborghini's tail lights, and rear cooling vents.
Above: Functional intake vents.
In case you thought this was just a static display done simply for 'wow' value... Think again... Catch the video at the top of this article to see it running.
