Super-clean 2007 Ford Mustang GT S197 With a Whipple Supercharger
We often inherit the passion for some hobbies, sports, or other activities from our parents, and our passion for cars, is certainly no exception. Growing up among his dad’s old-school muscle cars, Travis from Alabama had no chance to resist this awesome hobby and one day became an owner of this super clean 2007 Ford Mustang GT.
The S197 Ford Mustang was introduced in 2004 and influenced the design key for all modern generations of the model. Unlike the SN95 it was inspired by the original Mustang Fastback of the 60s and combined everything we love about the old-school muscle cars.
Even though the car looks very nice in the stock form, Travis decided to add a couple of personal touches to its exterior, such as a custom rear spoiler, CDC chin spoiler, and Stanglights custom black housing turn signals. It sits low on a set of staggered 20×9 and 20×10.5 Verde Axis V99 rims. To eliminate the wheel gap and lower the car he installed a set of Eibach Sportline lowering springs.
“But don’t be fooled by the “almost stock” appearance of this GT build”
But don’t be fooled by the “almost stock” appearance of this Mustang GT build. Under the hood, it’s hiding a 2.3L Whipple supercharger, upgraded injectors, tuned by lito, shorty exhaust headers, offroad x-Pipe, MBPR muffler delete, and other upgrades.
