Peregrine Automotive has developed a carbon fiber body for late-model Mustangs, and their Revenge GT is 6″ wider than a normal Mustang. The roof and doors are the only parts not altered, to keep the passengers safe. Having seen the renderings, we were blown away when they stopped by our Cars & Coffee show
Shaving several hundred pounds makes it ride like a dream, and the 345/30/20 rear tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. The fronts are 295/35/20 to provide just enough oversteer to keep it predictable. Working with Forgeline & Brembo, the Revenge GT retains the stock offset at all corners.
You will never have such a nimble & enjoyable experience, as the Whipple supercharger delivers over 800 horsepower to this featherweight Ford. The Revenge GT is the brainchild of two brothers: Armen & Alex. Their goal was to move the center of rotation closer to the driver, and this is the first Mustang that rotates through corners with the driver, with minimal G-forces sent into the cockpit.
Both the convertible and coupe are orders of magnitude better than a Mustang GT. From the hand-stitched leather to incredibly tight panel gaps, this is the one you have been waiting for.
Before the first molds were made, the entire build was evaluated for drag and downforce in the virtual world. This allows the front and rear spoilers to keep the center of downforce near the center of gravity. Lessons learned became reality in a full-scale clay model, a critical coachbuilding process that many builders can’t or won’t do.
Their rear wing alone adds 121 lb-ft at 140 mph. In doing so, it only generates 2 lbs of drag. Due to the complexities of forming such large & complex panels, only 35 coupes and 15 convertibles will be offered. The Revenge GT represents the ideal blend of modern composites and handbuilt perfection.
