From concept sketch to reality, we bring you the ROUSH Reactor Mustang. We knew this would be a killer car, but honestly it's even better than we thought in person. The olive drab paint color that covers the car's carbon fiber body panels is a nice detour away from the Highlighter Yellow and Orange colors that so many cars are wearing at SEMA this year. The Ringbrothers who built the car removed the drip rails and door handles so that those expanses of colored carbon fiber could be better viewed. The matte six-spoke wheels continue the muted color scheme and the lip on those rear rims is too wide to believe. The engine is Roush's new show-n-go 427 R crate motor that produces 552 horsepower and 535 ft-lbs. of torque, but still looks good enough to win awards under that vented hood. While there are Mustangs in attendance at the SEMA show that have more powerful engines and more sensational modifications (the Obsidian comes to mind), we'd be hard pressed to find one as well done as the Reactor. Good luck to its owner in winning the Good Guys Street Machine of the Year Award.

      I kind of like the roll hoops behind the seats, but why on earth would you go to all that trouble and expense to create billet window-hole grills and not have windows there? Muscle car enthusiasts need outward visibility, too!

      The interior's kinda goofy-looking.

      That is a gorgeous color scheme. The only other time I saw olive drab and matte black combined, it was on a Jeep. I never thought it'd transfer over to a Mustang well, but there it is.

      I was floored when I found out Doug Hoppe owns this beast, it's not often that Sioux Center, Iowa gets recognized. And then I almost soiled myself when I saw it driving down main street a couple of weeks ago.

      The designer on this car was Sean Smith.
