Go Hellcat Hunting in this 718hp Ford Mustang GT from SEMA
Each years, cars like this stunning 2015 Ford Mustang GT fastback are built to fill the many booths at the SEMA Show. These cars are designed to draw attention to the different displays while also showing off a spread of aftermarket components for the car in question. Cars like this Mustang GT are basically what some owners might do if they had an unlimited budget, with many of these cars offering dream car-like status for the people who share the images on their Facebook wall.
In the case of this 2015 Ford Mustang GT from SEMA, you can have one of those stunning, high performance show cars and it really only has a markup of around $25,000. Figure that a new Mustang GT Premium fastback costs around $37,000, so the $62k buy-it-now price accounts for an upcharge of $25,000 for the components and the labor that went into this car. After being displayed at SEMA, this Mustang went on to the LA Auto Show – so it has seen more show experience and it has been seen by more people than most long-time show cars.

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT currently on sale on eBay is a complete custom build, starting on the outside with an RK Sport body kit featuring a carbon fiber front splitter, a carbon fiber rear diffuser, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, new side skirts and a carbon fiber Ram Air style hood. Next, a TREX upper and lower grille insert package has been added, along with dark window tint all around and 20 inch Savini BM111 wheels wrapped in Toyo R888 tires.
On the inside, this SEMA Mustang has a unique black leather seating layout with bright red trim and an elaborate sound system with four 8 inch subwoofers.
Finally, the 5.0L V8 of the Mustang GT has been fitted with a Whipple 2.9L supercharger, a 132mm throttle body, a high flow intercooler, new fuel injectors and a 3 inch cat-back exhaust system. When brought together with a good engine tune, this Mustang produces 718 horsepower and 542lb-ft of torque. The build team also added a Wilwood brake package with 6-piston front calipers and 4-piston rear calipers, allowing the driver to bring the Mustang down from the incredible speeds that this beast is capable of with the 700+ horsepower engine.
The eBay listing only offers a buy-it-now price of $62,500, but you can make offers. This is not the type of auction where you can bid and hope to score this Mustang on the cheap, but for someone who wants a superior quality show car with monster muscle car power – enough to take a swipe at the mighty Hellcat Challenger – this is a rare chance to buy a SEMA car.
