The SEMA show is all about aftermarket suppliers, right? And it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that
one of this year's favorite showcase cars for these independent companies will be the instantly popular new-generation
Ford Mustang. Sure, Roush and Saleen make complete, re-engineered specialty cars from the Mustang platform, but there
is a thriving network of less well-known companies specializing in aftermarket support for Mustang enthusiasts. One of
these companies is Michigan-based Mustang Racing Technologies.
The "Cherry 6T6" is the latest in MRT's line of Mustang show cars for SEMA. This year's car is a nicely tricked out convertible, featuring a full-spectrum of off-the-shelf parts and accessories for the new-generation Mustang.
The car is powered by a twin-turbo version of Ford?s 4-liter V6, delivering a stout 300 hp at the rear wheels. The interior includes stock seats reskinned with a Sparco leather kit, and a 6-monitor audio/video system. Chassis mods include an adjustable H&R coilover kit, new brakes, and 20-inch Foose wheels wrapped in Pirelli PZero rim protectors. Lots of pictures of the build-up and specs at MRT?s website.
