When it comes to collaborative automotive partnerships, there is a bevy of progressive companies who continue to inspire; Ford isn’t one of them. But now, that’s about to change with the introduction of a powerful new pony car, courtesy of high-end Mustang proprietor, Brown Lee, and the legendary Gulf Oil livery.
The dealers at Brown Lee Ford aren’t strangers to the procurement, and sale, of the company’s high-performance muscle car — but this specialized platform steals the spotlight. After months of negotiations, Gulf Oil has decided to license its iconic 1968 24 Hours of LeMans livery to the company, providing collectors with a beautifully-refined 2019/2020 model Mustang dressed in Orange and Gulf Blue. Leather, Alcantara, Gulf racing accents, and custom components line the vehicle’s interior, while newly-implemented peripherals like a CarbonAero front carbon-fiber splitter, diffuser, spoiler, and side sill complement the Mustang’s overall aesthetic. Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.0-liter Stage 2 Supercharger System, helping to push a monstrous 808 horsepower to the car’s rear wheels, courtesy of either a 10-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual. Only 119 examples are slated for production, so head to Brown Lee’s website to pick up your own variant for $140,000.
