ZeroTo60 Mustang GTT Wants To Look Like A Ford GT
Carscoops

By Michael Karkafiris

ZeroTo60 Designs revealed their new Mustang GTT ahead of its official debut at this year’s SEMA show.

The GTT stands for Grand Turismo Tribute as ZeroTo60 Designs wanted to pay homage to the Ford GT. The new bodywork blends some of the most striking design details of the Ford GT into the Mustang’s shape.

Performance was also enhanced to back the new looks; under the bonnet lies the 5.0-litre Coyote V8 which is now significantly updated with a supercharger for a total of more than 800hp.

ZeroTo60 added new Brembo brakes for better stopping power while an Eibach Pro Street S suspension and a set of 22inch HRE alloys wrapped in Pirelli P-Zeros were also installed to offer the necessary grip levels.

I wonder what happened to Ford's veiled threat of legal action against Zeroto60. Ford should instead be in hot negotiations with them to license the kit. Zeroto60 did what Ford designers should have been encouraged to do. This iteration of Mustang is HOT!

This look like an evolution of Mustang...the next gen hybrid with e-awd, 21miles of EV range(from a lightweight battery pack) especially for European cities, and a carbon fiber body.

If by "next generation" you mean the next generation of Mustang buyers then maybe. There is zero chance that S650 has any of that and virtually no chance S750 will either.

Why haven't they?
They have. It's called the new GT500. Just saw it uncovered recently. Looks better than the GT350, which looks better than this abomination.

And for the record, a Mustang needs to look like a Mustang, not a GT. Otherwise, the faithfull will protest.

Ford has already said they'll be making a hybrid Mustang.

Well, the next gen will be a hybrid set for 2020. However, Ford has not stated what 'hybrid' actually means for Mustang. Ford will have hybrid AWD by then for F-150 and hopefully Escape and other midsize and compact vehicles. So a lightweight e-AWD system is not too far fetched.

Executives expect the pony car's performance figures will improve, thanks to more low-end torque enabled by an electric motor.

"That will be the way we use that technology for this car. It will be a fun-to-drive, performance-oriented car. It's not meant to be a hyper-miler car; Mustang is all about having fun while you drive."

No such thing as lightweight electric. Without the addition of some major, and majorly expensive lightweighting you'll just end up with an overweight pig that's only good in straight lines. I could see some electrification for a Lincoln version of S650 where their ability to price it well covers the cost.

With the right tires and targeted engineering, a heavy car can handle quite well. A new 7-series BMW weighs well over 4,600 lbs. A Lincoln doesn't have to thrash Nurburgring to be fun to drive.

One minute, it "does look good" ...

It does look good, but no way in **** should Ford pay out for this design. They can do better.
... Next minute, it's an "abomination."

I agree but, IMO, the only thing that breaks the Mustang DNA code is the taillight treatment. I agree with your first impression.

On it's own it does look good.
But relative to the Shelby I compared it to when I stated it looks like an Abomination, I stand by my remark.
