Creators Of The 2015 Mustang Tell Their Story

Creators Of The 2015 Mustang Tell Their Story

We think that this is probably the best of the 2015 Mustang development videos produced so far, straight from the designers, engineers and creators of the S550 Mustang.

The new 2015 Ford Mustang is now in production at the Flat Rock assembly plant in Michigan and many of us have been lucky enough to see one of the concept prototypes that have been touring the country over the last few months, which will unfortunately (so we hear) be crushed soon once actual 2015 production Ford Mustangs come off the production line. Watch this video and see the designers and engineers bring the new S550 to life before your eyes. Meet Doyle Letson (Chief Interior Designer), Tom Barnes (Vehicle Engineer Manager), Susan Lampinen (Chief Designer, Colors and Materials), Kemal Curic (Mustang Lead Designer), Dave Pericak (Mustang Chief Engineer) and others whose hard work and passion went into the development and design of the all new 2015 Ford Mustang – A Job well done in our opinion – this is going to be the best Mustang yet.

Cars & Coffee Event – Tropical Detroit Muscle Car Club

Brothers Performance hosted the Tropical Detroit Muscle Car Club for a cars and coffee dyno event recently which actually turned out to be their monthly club get together! There were more than 75 members and their families in attendance and 45-50 American built muscle cars and trucks! We got an early start around 10am and treated our guests to freshly brewed coffee in our new Brothers Performance “Cars & Coffee Mugs” (which members were allowed to keep) along with some fresh baked pastries. During the day we were able to strap down over a dozen club member cars of all makes and models on our Dynojet chassis dyno tester and give the owners accurate Winpep printed read outs with all horsepower and torques numbers. The Club provided lunch to all members and used our new Grill, EZ up and tables to offer everyone hot dogs and hamburgers. Unfortunately the weather turned around 2.30pm and we had a storm roll through, but the members just came indoors and enjoyed our air conditioned lounge area to finish off the day’s event. We look forward to seeing everyone again at the next event.
The Tropical Detroit Muscle Car Club was founded in 2013 to further promote the simple idea of having fun while spending time with friends and sharing the love of American made Muscle cars and trucks from any era. The TDMCC as it is also known does not have a president or any board members and there are no membership fees to join – All “born in Detroit” vehicles are welcome. So if you own a Ford, Chevy, Chrysler or other American made car, The TDMCC would love to have you ride along with them and follow their one simple rule “To have fun” Follow their events by checking them out on Facebook – Twitter and their Club website. Thanks to all who attended and for making it a really great day – we always welcome our dedicated club members and car enthusiasts at Brothers Performance in Deland – If you are interested in having a Cars & Coffee Dyno Day – please email us @ events@brothersperformance.com – Click Here to See More

2015 Mustang Right Hand Drive Testing

Ford’s new Mustang goes on sale this fall in the U.S. and globally in more than 120 countries later this year and next year and for the first time in the Ford Mustang 50 year history, the Ford Mustang will be available in a factory-built right hand drive configuration.
More than 25 new right-hand-drive markets will be able to purchase the new Mustang, including the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa
For the first time ever, a right-hand-drive Ford Mustang will roll off a Ford assembly line when global production begins. The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s lineup of global vehicles will allow the iconic pony car to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world, including the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.

Mustang engineers recently finished construction of the very first right-hand-drive sixth-generation Mustang. The prototype Mustang will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market in the coming months.

While the United States is the largest market for Mustang with more than 9.2 million sales since the car’s debut in 1964, more than 161,000 Mustangs have been sold outside of North America in that time. In 2012 alone, more than 4,000 Mustangs were sold in 35 countries outside of North America, ranging from the United Arab Emirates to Chile to the Philippines.

The Final Limited Edition 50 Year Mustang To Be Auctioned

The Final Limited Edition 50 Year Mustang To Be Auctioned

As expected the final production vehicle of the special limited production 50th anniversary 2015 Ford Mustang (#1964 of 1964) will be auctioned off at an upcoming Barrett Jackson auction to be held in LAs Vegas, Nevada on September 25-27
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford Motor Company.”
That makes it all the more fitting that this final production Limited Edition 50th anniversary Mustang car will be auctioned as part of the annual Get Your Heart Racing program to raise funds for Edith and Benson Ford Heart & Vascular Institute at Henry Ford Hospital.
Each limited-edition car features a plaque on the instrument panel engraved with a serial number and the signature of Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford. But this final and very special Mustang No. 1,964 will have something a little different it will be customized into a one-of-one pace car package that includes the signatures of other Ford executives. The car will be revealed publicly for the first time at the Get Your Heart Racing Pit Party sponsored by Crest Automotive Group, Sept. 12 at Eastern Market in Detroit.
We are not sure which day this last of the limited edition Ford Mustangs will cross the auctioners block at the Barrett Jackson Auction in Las Vegas as the final information has not been released yet, but we will let you know when we hear any updates.
Ford also announced that they are also including a Pace car package with this car, which we are sure will make it very collectible for the future. The car will be turned into the official pace car for the Ford Ecoboost 400 NASCAR Spring Cup race next year and the winning bidder will receive a VIP package to attend the event and watch as his or her new vehicle leads the racing field, who knows they may even be able to ride shotgun.

Corvette Club Of Orlando Visit Brothers Performance

 
Brothers Performance in Deland welcomed the Corvette Club Of Orlando to our facility this past saturday for as we hosted their cars & coffee morning and dyno event. The Corvette club of Orlando are a very active Corvette Club located in Central Florida and they love to have fun, their motto is simple – “Friendship, Family, Fun.” Founded in 1992, they have been providing Corvette owners in Florida a truly premier membership experience for almost twenty-two years. They have members with Corvette classics from the ’50′s to the ultra modern 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray! They are also a very social organization that enjoys fellowship, Corvette road-trips, Corvette car shows, activities & events and anything that has a common bond of support for the communities they live in. Brothers had contacted the club president a few weeks back about us hosting their club for a cars & coffee morning and dyno day and they immediately said yes, so we organized a date, and this past Saturday 20 plus cars and members drove over to our location with their rides to see how good our coffee and pastries were and to see who could put the most horsepower and torque down on our chassis dyno. We managed to satisfy ten owner’s curiousity and hand them their final “dyno” print outs that revealed the real truth about their bowtie modifications. One owner purchased a BBK cold air intake to see the before and after results, which he was very happy with and we installed it for him too! The day passed really quickly as it always does with everyone enjoying the convienience of our clean modern facility. We look forward to seeing everyone again at another event.  Thank you for visiting us – We hope you all enjoyed the day – we certainly enjoyed meeting you all – come back soon!

F-35 Mustang Concept To Be Auctioned

This fighter jet plane concept has been done on a few Mustangs over the years and now the 2015 Ford Mustang GT F-35 Lightning II themed concept car is the latest to show off the great new lines of the 2015 Ford Mustang GT. This car will push out the standard naturally aspirated 435 horsepower at the flywheel – but it is the really cool stealthy design and colors that will catch everyones eye when it is auctioned off for charity at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s annual Gathering of Eagles charity event in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Proceeds of the aution will go to a program that helps get young kids interested in aviation. We really like the colors used especially the yellow window tint, wonder if its legal?

Update August 7th 2014 This Car sold for over $200,000

The 2015 Pony Car Wars Are Heating Up

The 2015 Pony Car Wars Are Heating Up In Detroit

Now that Ford released their “Official” 2015 Ford Mustang specifications and performance details, here are the Official Detroit Muscle cars by the numbers and there are some interesting facts here that are quite surprising. First of all the big three pony cars are putting out more and more horsepower and torque every year while still getting better gas mileage and secondly the new 2015 Ford 5.0 Coyote engine is leading the pack under the hood horsepower wise beating out the Camaro 6.2L and 5.7L Dodge Hemi power plant. (see all the numbers below ) The other big announcement this week is the fact that the new soon to be released Dodge “Hellcat” will put out an insane 707 Horsepower.
These are how the numbers are shaping up so far in motor city:

The V8 Numbers
Right now, the 5.0-liter Mustang GT has the lead among Detroit’s V8 muscle cars in the power department, though there’s a caveat. The 435-hp output of the 5.0-liter ‘Stang is ahead of the 6.2-liter LS3 V8 Camaro SS, which is rated at 426 ponies. It’s also better than the 5.7-liter V8 Challenger R/T’s 375 hp.
But, it trails the 6.4-liter V8 used in the 392 Challenger, which makes 485 hp. Blue Oval enthusiasts could argue the 392 is a sort of “Hellcat Lite,” and not the GT’s true competitor.
The tables are turned in the torque department, as the V8 Stang summons 400 lb-ft, which is behind the Camaro SS (420 lb-ft), the Challenger R/T (410 lb-ft) and the 392 (475 lb-ft).
Of course, we’re just talking about the 2015 Mustang’s competition, and since we don’t know what’s in store for the SVT-tuned example yet, we’re leaving out any comparisons to the Camaro Z/28 and ZL1, as well as the previously mentioned, 707-hp Challenger Hellcat.

The V6 Numbers
Among V6s, the Camaro is the decided leader in power, boosting 323 hp, well ahead of the Challenger’s 305 hp and the now-detuned Mustang, which dropped to an even 300 hp this year.
The Blue Oval does pack the most torque among six-cylinders with 280 lb-ft, just ahead of the Camaro’s 278 lb-ft and the Challenger’s 268 lb-ft.
The Wildcard
Of course, we’re referring to Ford’s EcoBoost inline four-cylinder, which pushes out 310 hp and an impressive 320 lb-ft from a turbocharged 2.3-liter mill. Neither Dodge nor Chevy have anything similar in their current muscle car lines, and if there are any undecided potential buyers in this died-in-the-wool segment, it could prove to be a game-changer.

On The Scales:
The turbo four is also the lightest Mustang and the lightest car among these offerings from Detroit, weighing 3,524 pounds. The V6 ‘Stang is just two pounds heavier though, which puts it well ahead of the V6 Camaro (3,702 pounds) and Challenger (3,834 pounds).
This trend continues among the V8s, as the Mustang GT is 3,705 pounds – just three pounds heavier than the lightest Camaro V6. The eight-cylinder Chevy comes in at 3,908 pounds, which is still lighter than the Challenger’s weight of 4,082 pounds.
