Think German tuning, and immediately you'll think of tuning houses like AMG, Alpina, AC Schnitzer, Abt, and even Brabus to name a few. Performance is their game and they're not afraid of extracting more horsepower from engines, as well as making the exterior of each car look more unique and eye-catching
But have you ever heard of Wolf Racing? They're also a German-based tuner that specializes mostly in souping-up Fords, as well as racing in them. From the humble Fiesta and Mondeo, to the more powerful Mustang and Ranger, there's nothing Wolf Racing has done to make Blue Ovals faster and cooler.
Recently, the company celebrated its 40th anniversary by releasing a beast of a Mustang. Simply called the Mustang GT Compressor, it's powered by a heavily-modified 5.0-liter Coyote V8 that benefits from original high-performance parts from Ford, along with an Edelbrock supercharger. The result is a whopping 745 PS and a staggering 880 Nm of torque. Plus, it's available with either a six-speed manual or a ten-speed automatic transmission. Wolf Racing claims it can go from 0 – 100 km/h in just under four seconds.
Aside from giving it a more powerful powertrain, the company was also busy modifiying it chassis. It now comes with a limited-slip differential, along with a coilover suspension kit that have adjustable rebound and bounce settings for optimized handling. Ride height, on the other hand, has been dropped by some 30mm for a lower center of gravity and improved agility. Other cool changes Wolf Racing did for the Mustang include body graphics and decals, custom 21-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires, and a carbon fiber rear spoiler.
To remind everyone that this is a special edition Mustang, a special plaque bearing the 'One of 7' motif is placed on the dashboard. Beyond that, it also comes with a sports steering wheel, new sport seats with color-coded piping, and the distinct Wolf Racing logo on the headrests.
Thinking of getting one? Better think fast as only seven examples will be built in total and all have a suggested retail price of EUR 94,440 (about Php 5,490,460).
For something as powerful as the much revered Shelby GT500, the Wolf Racing Mustang GT Compressor is quite the bargain since it has supercar performance for less. All I can say is, the Americans better watch their backs for Wolf Racing.
