Thats What I Call Beauty

Fast cars and superbikes have been a passion of mine ever since I got my first ride...a Proton Saga of the Magma series....

Modified it to hell because I was getting sick of eating the dust fed by the famed Genting taxis on the way uphill....

Change the engine from a normal aspirated 8 valve 82hp to a 180hp Mivec coupled to a LSD ( Limited Slip Diffential ). Standard shocks were replaced with Tein dampers and coils to lower the car and increase its stability. Needless to say the damage on my pocket was really obscene...but i managed to smoke those taxis until they gave me the finger....waaahahahahahaha....wonder where is WBL 5569 now?

Neways, this post is not about my "Potong" Saga...its about another dream machine called...

The Ford Mustang....KNN, what a ride!!!!! It cost only USD19,650 in the States but knowing the stoooopid BolehLand G, its will be 6 times the price if one were to bring it in....thanks to the sohai APs ( Approval Permits ) big time!!

Let me show you guys/gals what I am rambling about here ok?


I will drive an American Muscle Car anytime as compared to a Japanese Sports Car which I feel are too nice looking and pampered for my liking....

In case you were wondering where in hell have I seen the car before?? let me refresh your memories....

Ford Mustang as Barricade in Transformers The Movie..

And as KITT in Knight Rider ( replacing the Transam )....

I know that its wishful thinking hoping that Ford Malaysia will bring in even the Saleen series ( not the GT ) harm to hope huh?

Below are the specification for the Mustang:

5.4L supercharged, intercooled DOHC V8 engine
500 hp @ 6000 rpm and 480 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4500 rpm
9.0 psi boost
Forged-steel crankshaft
Forged-steel I-Beam connecting rods
6-speed manual transmission
Dual 60-mm electronic throttle body
4-channel ABS brakes with traction control system
Modified 8.8" live axle with 3.31:1 gear ratio
Brembo® 14" vented front rotors and 4-piston calipers
11.8" vented rear rotors with 2-piston calipers
SVT-tuned suspension with unique shocks and springs

P255/45ZR18 front F1 Supercar tires
P285/40ZR18 rear F1 Supercar tires

The above has been labelled as "STANDARD SPECIFICATIONS" in Ford's catalogue....aaargg! Kindly excuse me while I go bang my head....agaian and again and again and again...duuuuh
