It appears that the theme of this year's SEMA show in Las Vegas will be "Gratuitous Tuning," the time honored art of adding plastic body kits, big wheels, lethal sound systems and origami doors to our favorite cars just for the hell of it. The latest car we've found is the Maaco Medusa Mustang, a pimped out pony car that left the fine line between good taste and garishness in the dust as fast as its 550-horsepower, supercharged engine could take it. If you look closely you'll notice that most of the Medusa's exterior mods come care of a Saleen S281 body kit. Saleen also contributes the brakes, seats and aforementioned roots supercharger. The gull-wing doors look like a pair of nachos being dipped in this most cheesiest of rides, and an air suspension farts away any hope this car could handle on its 20-inch Saleen rims. A couple of mods we do like include the Maaco-applied DuPont color-shifting ChromaLusion paint and custom installed in-car computer running Windows XP on a very large LCD screen in the center console. This question remains, is the Medusa Mustang more gratuitous than the Outrageous C6? Probably not, it would need an Ostrich leather interior to pull that off.

      the doors are my only problem with this mustang
      • 8 Years Ago
      I saw this car earlier this summer and it really does look pretty good, and certainly draws a crowd.
      • 8 Years Ago
      For having 550 hp that thing is pretty slow.

      I hate the doors on that aswell. Shit imo. Mustang's are not very good cars AT all. Yeah, good if you want to keep driving straight. They don't like to corner.

      another reason to hate mustangs.
      that lcd is sweet though.
      Whyd they put a shifter from a pickup truck in there? (things enormous!)
      i wonder if its as slow as the factory boosted mustangs

      wtf??? this is an awsome ride(exept for the doors). thir ride will be able to pull off low 12s and if you are a great driver high 11s.

      Those aren't gull-wing doors, those are scissor doors...
      • 8 Years Ago
      My only gripe about the doors is it'd be a bitch to use it as a daily driver. How much room do you need to open 'em all the way? One asshole parks too close to you and you're screwed! The Delorean only needed 18 inches to open the doors.

      I wouldn't turn down this vehicle. Granted, it'd need a new paintjob if Maaco did the work on this one. Hell, I do better work than Maaco!

      BTW, those are NOT gullwing doors. Those are closer to McLaren doors.

      Its pretty funny to watch the haters and their typical usless posts.. I have met more then my share at car shows, they love to rag on my shelby stang but when it comes time to run they are nowhere to be found.. nevermind the fact most of them drive 10 year old civics....

      I want to know who he marketing nimrod is who named this vehicle after a mythical creature that is so ugly, that merely looking at it will turn you to stone.

      very nice car !

      Not impressed by the car, ford could take a lesson from pontiac. I am, however impressed by the paint job. Awesome lines, the color is just sick, and I love the racing stripes on top. Lose the doors though, when are people gonna realize just how gay it is, biting off the super street honda's.
