Ford tuning specialists Steeda Autosports have been teasing the 2010 version of their Q-Series Mustang for quite some time, and apparently for some of their customers, it can't come soon enough. To help deal with requests, the Florida-based company has introduced a Sport Edition model that utilizes an array of parts already in the Steeda catalog.

This particular steed is tweaked to handle, with upgraded billet lower control arms, sport springs, and 20-inch chrome wheels wrapped with Nitto NT05 high-performance tires. Other modifications include a sport shifter, underdrive performance pulleys, a performance air cleaner, and distinctive Steeda graphics. At $8995 $6,995, the pricing seems pretty steep, especially without any significant power upgrades, but we have to admit it's one good looking pony car.

*UPDATE: Steeda representatives have contacted Autoblog with correct information regarding the new Sport Edition, including a different, wallet-friendlier package price of $6,995 (the source article cited incorrect information). The full, official press release has been added after the jump.


PRESS RELEASE:

While work is progressing at a feverish pace for the upcoming launch of the 2010 Steeda Q-Series Mustang, we have been flooded with requests from those that just cannot wait wanting us to make available a special "Steeda-ized" version of the 2010 Mustang. To respond to these many requests, we are proud to announce the immediate availability of the 2010 Steeda Sport Edition Mustang.

Using a donor 2010 Mustang GT as a sound foundation to build upon, the Steeda Sport Edition provides for an immediate injection of power and increased handling that only the Team at Steeda Autosports can provide. With a MSRP of just $6,995 (not including the cost of the Mustang GT), the Steeda Sport Edition elevates the overall vehicle's performance to an entirely new level of performance.

Equipped with a bevy of Steeda performance parts made especially for the 2010 Mustang, the 2010 Steeda Sport Edition includes the following special equipment:

* Steeda hood paint treatment
* Steeda sidewinder stripes
* Steeda underdrive performance pulleys
* Steeda performance air cleaner

      I like the stance, black hood, and lack of spoiler, but the graphics and wheels would have to go. Regarding the price, yes it's a bit steep, but at least the focus is where I would put it: handling performance. IMO the GT has plenty of power already, what it needs is suspension upgrades to balance things out.

      I realize it doesn't say in the story, but I suspect the $8995 is the cost of the UPGRADE not the total cost of the car :)

      That "steeda" logo will look real good behind the license plate.

        Then again, a plate may look better than a cheesy vinyl logo.

      "nice" aftermarket wheels from the last decade...

      I never really liked the previous Steeda Mustang models...

      ...but this looks pretty darn impressive.


      I still prefer the regular GT coupe over the Steeda. lol
