Designer Fabrizio Giugiaro

In 2005, Italian car designer Fabrizio Giugiaro, from the world renowned Giugiaro car design family, went to the Ford Motor Company with a passion to design a future concept inspired by the fifth generation Ford Mustang. As the styling director of Italdesign – Giugiaro S.P.A., Fabrizio is continuing the Italdesign design tradition known for his bold designs for Fiat, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Volkswagen, Mazda, Lotus and Bugatti. The original Giugiaro, Giorgetto, was instrumental in designing the 1965 Bertone Mustang and the Chevrolet Corvette Moray.

The result of Italdesign’s years of experience in car design and collaboration with Ford is the Giugiaro Mustang concept car that debuted at the 2006 Los Angeles International Auto Show.


Styling

Bringing European styling to this All-American icon, Italdesign has turned the Mustang into a refined and intimidating sports car. Minutely larger than the current Mustang, its angular lines flow into one another creating an aggressive modern feel. A single piece of high tech glass forms the windshield and roof. Made of a special type of crystals the glass is able to filter out 100 percent of UVA rays while still providing perfect visibility. The doors are touch operated and when opened raise from the A-pillar at a 45 degree angle. Inside, the interior harkens to the Pony Car’s name with furred horsehides covering the seats.

Engine

The Giugiaro Mustang is powered by a the same 4.6L V8 from the Mustang GT, but it receives additional power from a twin-screw supercharger. The engine is also uniquely tuned by Italdesign and fitted with fuel injectors from the Ford GT. The engine is given more fresh air through an air intake with a 95mm larger mass air meter and a conical air filter. Exhaust flow is improved using an X-pipe and Ford Racing mufflers.

All these power improvements add up to the cars ability to produce over 500hp at 11psi of boost from the supercharger.

Technical Details

The Giugiaro Mustang lives up to its performance heritage. Equipped with a custom Ford Racing Handling Pack, the Giugiaro Mustang features new Dynamic-tuned dampers, lower springs, and thicker anti-sway bars. This allows the car to handle extremely well and lowers the ride height by 1.5 inches.
