Ford Mustang Need for Speed is one-off, being created especially for the film. Its design includes a custom-designed wide body and unique 22-inch alloy wheels. It is capable of producing 900 horsepower (662 kW), and has larger intakes to feed its supercharged V-8 engine.
What keeps the engine cool is the enlarged lower grille with corner air intakes to cool the front brakes. The aerodynamic drag was reduced by the utilization of low profile mirrors and extended rocker panels.
The redesigned splitter on the other hand delivers enhanced handling at high speeds. At the rear, the spoiler and diffuser were created to improve airflow, reducing drag and giving additional traction for high-speed acceleration.
