Ever want to own a 627 horsepower Mustang GT with Richard Petty’s signature on the dashboard? That might be an interesting item if the owner is ever pulled over for speeding. At any rate, Ford and Petty’s Garage have teamed up to build a limited edition GT with a Ford Racing/Roush supercharger. AC/DC’s Brian Johnson has ordered the first one. The car will be built in two stages with the Stage 1 version limited to 100 units, and the second will total just 43 units. The Stage 2 units will offer an upgraded suspension and brakes, special paint and exclusive three piece forged aluminum wheels. The Petty’s Garage Stage 1 will carry an MSRP of $62,210 with the Stage 2 coming in at a rather pricey $92,210. It is one mean looking Mustang.
