Have You Seen Her?

November 14, 2004 7:41 pm

It doesn’t matter where you saw her first – at an auto show, in a magazine or on the world wide web. And it doesn’t matter whether you are an automotive engineer who wants to know all of the specifications, or a casual enthusiast who just digs the way she looks, we know there’s one question that’s on every enthusiast’s list is…. “How can I get one?”. We’re happy to report that the ordering process is as simple as the car is beautiful, but first, a little fodder for those engineering types.

The curb appeal of the Torch Red Q gets enhanced from the ground up – starting with the Steeda Ultralite I Wheels, wrapped in high performance rubber like Nitto NT555 – P275/40/ZR18 tires. Ride height is reduced by approximately one full inch without compromising ride quality, thanks to a set of Steeda Sport Springs. When the temptation comes to toss her hard into a corner (as you know it will), the Steeda Strut Tower Brace helps keep everything on the level. Locking lug nuts are included; chrome wheels are an available option.

Steeda’s racing heritage is visible in the body modifications. Both the Front Splitter and the Rear Wing would be at home on one of Team Steeda’s racecars; here they lend a race-hardened edge to the retro-styled ’05. Steeda’s signature graphics, plus a ‘Boss’ blackout treatment of the hood, mirrors and rear valance combine to add timeless good looks.

Steeda helps the stout, Ford 4.6L 3v engine snort more fire via a set of Underdrive Pulleys and the addition of a free-breathing Air Filter. The Steeda axle-back exhaust system aids performance and adds an authoritative tone. All this extra horsepower gets more efficiently applied via the patented, precise Steeda Tri-Ax Shifter. It makes the job of swapping cogs less like rowing a boat, and more like flipping a switch.

The shifter is topped with an ergonomically designed, Steeda Signature Shift Knob. A set of embroidered Steeda Floor Mats rounds the package out. Thus Steeda style is found in, under and around the entire car, while the price remains within reach. This full compliment of Steeda enhancements results in an MSRP of only $32,484.00, putting it on par with performance models available from the factory in recent years, such as the Mach 1. Ordering yours is easy, and can be fun as well.

Start with a visit to your favorite Ford Dealership, and order your Mustang GT. Let them know your plans, and they will schedule the car to be drop-shipped straight from the Ford Factory in Flat Rock, MI to the Steeda Campus in Pompano Beach, FL. Here, the technicians that work on your car are the same ones who turn wrenches on Team Steeda’s Racecars, so your pony is in good hands. With all appearance, performance and handling installations done on-site, the workmanship is second to none, and all Steeda parts carry a three year, 36,000 mile warranty.

Upon successful completion of a thorough road test, each car gets a pair of Serialized Badges (one for the dash, the other is applied to the firewall) identifying it as a Steeda Q, and is made ready for shipment back to the ordering dealer… or not, for those who just can’t wait to get behind the wheel! The fun starts sooner for those owners who elect to fly down to Florida, take a tour of the Steeda Campus, and then make the maiden voyage in their Steeda Q a glorious road trip home.

As you can see, the “How” can be answered easily with a call to New Vehicle Specialist Mike Morella at Steeda Autosports (954)-960-0774, or with a visit to your Local Ford Dealer. Then all that remains is the devilish question of “When”.
