If you happen to have a stale 2010 Ford Mustang GT laying around, Reifen Koch may be able to spice it up for you. For €8,000 (a shave over $10,500 at current conversion rates), the company will slap on a Cervini body kit, composed of a revised front fascia, sills and the tail treatment seen above. The "Konquistador" package also includes a side-exit exhaust system, a full KW coilover kit and a hydraulic axle-lift system to help owners overcome pesky speed bumps and other obstacles, though it would seem those bits will cost you extra.

There's no word on whether the system can help you overcome the crippling knowledge that your pony remains powered by the stock boat-anchor 4.6-liter V8, however. For reasons that remain unclear, Reifen Koch left the lump untouched, meaning the kitted Mustang is still left with a comparatively anemic 315 horsepower. For reference, the 2013 Mustang GT pours 420 ponies to the back tires.

Speaking of rubber, the tuner seems to believe a smart set of wheels and tires are a suitable substitution for performance, saying their Mustang boasts "one of the greatest combinations of wheels and tires." Behold, the Ford Mustang Hyperbole Edition. Hit the jump for the full press blast.

THE KONQUISTADOR by Reifen Koch

In 1964 Ford let the first Mustang come into the world. The model took its place quickly as an alternative to already legendary Thunderbird and became an ancestor to a new generation of the Pony-Car Class. Through different intermediate states and countless niche models and at last we came up to the Mustang V, a model created in 2004.

In this article we will speak about this kind of V8-daredevil with 4.6 L engine capacity and 309 kW. In order to significantly improve the Optics of the advanced Retro-Design vehicle that belonged to the popular movie stars for a long time, we installed the Cervini-Bodykit for 8,000 Euro. We also installed a specially featured exhaust system which included side pipes at both ends to ensure the smooth operation of the hard bar. Moreover, this tomboy is equipped with KW-coilovers with electrically lifting axles and HLS (Hydraulic Lift System) Kit, which solved such well-known problems caused by its smaller ground clearance as emissions on the roadway, problem garage entry and covered parking entry and also problems with so-called speed-blocker. We also installed the Brembo braking system so that the Mustang could slow down well.

But what would it be – and here we come up to the highlight of our program – without one of the greatest combinations of wheels and tyres that provides the strongest contact between the car and the street, the Hause Schmidt Revolution (www.felge.de) in Schleswig-Holstein Bad Segeberg? This time the image is accomplished by the four Gotham wheels with the dimensions of 9Jx20H2 at the front axle and 11Jx20H2 – at the back axle with Dunlop tyres in 265/35R20 and 305/30R20. The alloy wheels and wide tyres cost together 4,500 Euro!

      I think the the pre-facelifted version (05-09) fits better with a Eleanor kit. More retro looking than the outgoing model.

      Boat anchor, huh? 0-60 in five and half seconds not fast enough for you?

        300+ hp in anything as light as a Mustang is plenty quick enough.

          Not sure what you conder light, but a 3600+ lb Mustang by most accounts does not count as "light". With Mustang's like this driving around Europe it's no wonder European's laugh at American sports cars.

      I appreciate the work they put into it but from the looks of it, the grills, hood and body kit look straight out of JC Whitney.

      Bad attempt at an updated Eleanor, at least in the front. I'm gone way before 60 seconds. Looks like Predator from the front...too many movie references in one comment???

      Not bad, like the taillights, but those rims are wrong.

      Those taillights remind me of the 2003 Mustang GT and GT-R concepts, all these years I said they should have been featured in the production version. Only reason why I would tune a Mustang, if I had one, would be to get those taillights.

      I'm SO GLAD someone came up with yet /another/ Eleanor look-alike!

      I'll take the Boss, GT, or Shelby stock please. This looks hideous. Hardly anyone does tasteful bodykits these days. Kaminari and TRD made some real nice ones years ago.

      I stick with my Vettes; every teen punk that thinks they know how to drive has a Stang :-( The real Mustang died in 70s!

        Queue video of two corvette owners racing on a straight road wrecking. Don't act like Vettes are on a different plain. They're just as obtainable to the masses since they drop like a rock in value.

        It sounds like you've been asleep since the early 90s. I remember when the 2005 came out, and it seemed it was Baby Boomers who were buying them up left and right.

      Oh and my comment on the car? I think Cervini's kit looks better, including their new taillight conversion. They look much better because they seem to have the original '67-'69 GT500 look. These just look overgrown. But that might because this is a rendering, and those taillights are just stretched.
