We got a preview of the 2018 SEMA Show on Monday night and we have to admit the number of awesome vehicles is staggering. Sure, there are the cheesy builds that normally populate SEMA each year but the proverbial line in the sand between awesome and bad is very obvious this year. One car that jumped out at us right away was the Corruptt Mustang, built by American Legends Hot Rods. The 1968 Mustang coupe was fitted with a Ferrari 4.2 L F136 V8 out of a Ferrari F430 and it needed extensive modifications to fit in and work in the Mustang. As if the powerplant wasn’t cool enough, the group added twin Nelson/Turbonetics turbochargers.
The intake manifold was off another Ferrari and converted from a direct injection to a traditional direct port setup. A MS3-Pro, by AMP EFI, was wired into the car to make it functional. They picked up the engine off eBay and it certainly to be one of the most popular cars of the show.
Our buddy Bill Tumas of CJ Pony Parts did a walk around and talks to the car owner about the details.
