Despite the release of the 7th gen Ford Mustang, the 4th-generation New Edge hasn’t lost any of its points in, terms of popularity among the enthusiasts. The exterior design of this car seems to be aging pretty well, and its edgy and brutal shape still looks attractive. Plus, with the recent resurgence in popularity of 90s fashion, it’s no surprise that these Mustangs are becoming more popular again.
Today, we’re featuring another special New Edge Mustang build that features a lot of must-have modifications for the 4th gen owners.
As you may have noticed from the perfect stance and ground-hugging appearance, this slammed 2002 Mineral Grey Mustang sits on Airlift air suspension with 3P management, which allowed the owner to get the wheel fitment more dialed in and achieve that awesome bagged look.
The wheels are ESR CS15 sized 18×10.5 with +22 offset all around, wrapped in 225/40/18 tires up front and 245/35/18 on the rear.
The exterior of the car didn’t remain stock either. Upfront, you’ll notice the Saleen front bumper with a Magic drift lip kit, Carbon Mach grille delete, Terminator Cobra hood, and custom headlights with LED DRLs. 03-04 New Edge Cobra side skirts, Carbon window cowling, and sequential taillights continue the theme on the back of the car.
Inside, you’ll find the Villante steering wheel with NRG quick release/ hub, NRG Prisma seats and SR Performance short shifter.
Among the performance upgrades on this 2V GT are SR Performance cold air intake and BBK 35mm throttle body to improve the engine aspiration and squeeze a couple of extra horsepower.
