StangNet.com is putting the finishing touches on its latest project car, and it's a doozy. Of course it's a Mustang, a modified GT500 to be exact. Teaming up with Classic Design Concepts, a mini-automaker all its own, takes the StangNet GT500 to a place average tuners would usually fear to tread.

For starters, the StangNet GT500 sports CDC's Glassback roof, which looks like a painted piece of sheetmetal from a distance, but upon closer inspection reveals itself as perforated metal that allows occupants inside the car to see right through the roof. The car also sports a custom made ducktail spoiler, new lower front grille/spoiler, body-colored mirrors, MY2008 HID headlamps, louvered scoops over the quarter windows and a hand-painted pair of blue racing stripes.

The car's performance has been enhanced with a new suspension from Steeda, functional brake ducts in place of the standard GT500's foglamps, CCW SP20 19-inch wheels (deep dish in the rear) wrapped in BFGs, and a Magnaflow catback exhaust coupled to an MRT H-pipe. The interior is largely unaltered so far, save for the addition of a Ford GT push button start system.

The car will be present at the Mid-America Ford Performance and Shelby Meet in Tulsa, OK around mid-June. Come November it will also appear at the SEMA show in Las Vegas where we'll likely see additional modifications made for the big show.

      "upon closer inspection reveals itself as perforated metal"

      Really? looks like perforated vinyl to me, same stuff they use for ad wraps on buses and promotional vehicles.

      I could be wrong but I dont think that perforated metal would do very well directly on top of glass.

      I couldnt find any specific info on Stangnet.com so I hope that Autoblog didnt just make this part up.

        My thoughts exactly. I'd expect flexing to scratch the hell out of the glass if it were perforated metal.

        It's probably the best tunerfied 'stang I've seen in a while.

      It is a duesey indeed.

      Not a "doozy."

      Tastefully done, but you can kiss the front nose/spoiler gone in one week's worth of real-world driving.
