How long does it take to build a show car worthy of being in the upcoming Fast and Furious 4 movie? Well, if the fourth installment is anything like the first sequel, 2 Fast 2 Furious, we'd say about ten minutes with a paint gun ought to do it. Hopefully the new FF film will be the best, however, since the original duo of Walker and Diesel are both back. A car for this movie, then, takes about six hours according to Stangpede, a San Diego-based Mustang club. Less than a dozen members from the club turned a stock Mustang into a full-blown show car in front of a live audience at the 2008 San Diego Auto Show. The transformation took just over six hours and included the addition of a Saleen 550-hp supercharger system, custom interior with racing seats, a glassback roof from Classic Design Concepts, and a retro body kit finished in Candy Apple Red paint. You can view details of the build in the photo gallery below.

      They had to add the requisite Lambo doors...

      I love the picture with a Lambo'd Honda next to a Gallardo (both of them with doors open) that says

      "LAMBO DOORS: So played out, Lamborghini doesn't even use them."

      This takes the award for ugliest Mustang ever away from the SEMA mustang. Love them nostrils!

      Hollywood and originality have been divorced for some time, like any other couple in hollywood.

      And any time it creeps back up, like Firefly, or Journeyman, they bash it in the head again.

      Cookie-cutter crap is very much their speed. Right along with those lambo-doors.

      Originality is too risky for the big money machines. Tried and true trash is much easier to bank on, and they are much more interested in making money selling TV and Movies than they are in making good TV and Movies for their wages.

      Is it any suprise from the land of Britney Spears idolatry?

      For a FnF car, this one is reasonably tasteful. Ditch the Lambo doors and those awful racing seats and I'd drive it. Normally, I'd bash the stick on side scoops, but, I like the covering of the quarter windows.

      Looking farward to the movies, looks like the Mustang is the new tuner in term of popularity like the Hondas once where. Leave them alone just add wheels is good enouph for a Mustang.
