CGS Motorsports FlatBack Mustang - Click above for a high-res image

The SEMA Show seems so far away, but tuners are already working hard to build the customized cars due to adorn the show floor at the Las Vegas Convention Center this November. Naturally, there'll be plenty of Mustangs and one of which will be the "FlatBack" 2010 Mustang from CGS Motorsports. The Southern California customizers has picked up quite a few design awards from Chrysler and Ford the past few years, and hope to do the same with its black-on-black-on-black 'Stang. The FlatBack will feature a two-tone paint scheme, 22-inch custom wheels, Roush body kit, Baer brakes, KW coilover suspension system, and more. Whipple is also providing a twin-screw supercharger to make the most of the Mustang's 4.6-liter V8. Get all the details in the press release after the jump.

      Can't go wrong with black, it makes you look thin

        Wow a Flat black car at SEMA, it's like it's 2006 all over again!

      couldn't I just go down to autozone and get some flat black paint myself and do the same thing?

      *yawn*

        While a lot of cars at SEMA did have flat black paint, you couldn't do it yourself. I've seen kids laugh at the prices people pay for a professional paint job when they could "do it themselves" and the blotchy finish on a homemade matte-job is just sad. I've never seen a good do it yourself matte black job.

      CGS and Sean Smith are from Southern California where I am from and I have seen there builds since the 90's. They are not "Bolt of Parts" builders. I will wait to see the car at SEMA before I make an opinion and criticize them on a public forum.

      You know what they say "Those who can't build it them selves, always criticize those who can".

      That the best part about this industry, if you can do it better... DO IT

      They aren't offering anything. it's a one-off show car...

      I am loving flat paint schemes, and love the look of this mustang...but I agree, its getting too common, nothing too special here.

      Would like to see it as an option on an actual production car.

      I think they finally decided on a Matte Metalic Grey as a main color also

      Half the cars at SEMA last year had matte paint... often black.
