Special Project Yellow Jacket Mustang to make its first appearance in Las Vegas

A specially comissioned Ford Mustang will make its world debut at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The Project Yellow Jacket Mustang puts out 597bhp and 473lb ft of torque from its 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine. It was created by tuning specialists Vortech, who added a new body kit and carbonfibre trim as well as upgrading the mechanical package.

Other features of the Yellow Jacket Mustang include specially designed allow wheels, upgraded suspension and more powerful six-piston brakes.

The company says it was driven to build the car after discovering Ford doesn't yet offer yellow paint on the new Mustang. Custom yellow paint was supplied for the car.

The 2014 Mustang is expected to arrive in European showrooms next year, and will be sold with V6 and V8 engine options alongside Ford's familiar 2.0-litre four-cylinder EcoBoost engine.

Our Verdict

Ford Mustang V8 Fastback

The Ford Mustang is available in the UK in right-hand drive for the first time, but does the rest of this American muscle car fit the UK car scene?

Not a huge fan of the paint job.

The Shelby GT500 looks brilliant though, i would sell some internal organs for one of those!

It's not as if the Mustang is a Model T and only available in black. There are nine standard colours to choose from. Ford probably deliberately chose not to offer yellow as, to my eyes anyway, it doesn't suit the car. I'd go for the traditional dark blue metallic with white stripes myself.'

Well,it's a bit late really, there are so many other options,some cheaper that this Ford Special.

You could buy a base Mustang GT and modify it according to your ideal road car

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals

    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
