As much as we love the Mustang in its stock form, for anyone reading this site, the as-delivered Mustang is just a starting point. When it comes to personalizing vehicles, there are even stats that support the concept that the Mustang is the most modified vehicle. However, no matter what the vehicle, it is usually the exterior of a car that gets the most attention because it’s what we see first.
From wheels and tires to body mods, tweaking the looks of a Mustang is the easiest way to make the car your own. In the case of the SVTP GT, we were generally pretty into the car’s looks, especially its distinct Yellow Blaze paint.
However, unlike most people, we concentrated our modifications in the drivetrain and suspension. For us, performance is the most important way to customize our Fords. However, as much as we love raising the bar on performance, we aren’t immune to the siren’s song of better looks.
To that end, we put together a strategy to bring some aspects of our favorite parts and pieces to create our own unique look for the SVTP GT. We always had a soft spot for the Saleen grille, so we picked one up a while back, but never installed it.
Instead of adding just one mod, we decided to add the rest of these mods to complete the look. Fortunately AmericanMuscle.com offered one-stop shopping for the rest of our exterior makeover wish list. So we spent some time reading, researching, and clicking our way through the site to put together a combo.
In the end, the dark accents and new parts really added an aggressive edge to the 2012 GT’s personality. It now offers the outward personality to back up its near 600-rear-wheel horsepower credentials and Boss-level handling.
