The Yellowjacket: Vortech’s supercharged Mustang for SEMA

Admittedly this is a bit of a short article as we don’t have a ton of pictures yet. We will though, as soon as SEMA happens. In the mean time what we have is a nice teaser pic from Vortech and some details. No doubt this will be hugely popular and will serve as a great preview of what you can get from Vortech for your own Mustang.

What we can tell from the photo is there is going to be some nifty body kit work, a carbon fiber cowl hood and oh yeah a big superchager. Ok we can’t tell that from the picture but it is Vortech. If you wanna check out the press release just hit the jump.


The Project Yellow Jacket Ford Mustang created by the team at Vortech Superchargers packs a serious sting for its upcoming debut at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas.


“As a lifelong Ford fan, I was inspired to create this project car when I realized Ford doesn’t offer yellow on the 2014 Mustang,” said Brian Ellis, sales, marketing and social media manager for AirPower Group. “We wanted to create something really eye-popping with a mechanical package to match the appearance.”

The team at Vortech added 3D Carbon’s Boy Racer kit, along with a carbon-fiber cowl induction hood and other carbon accents from TruFiber all finished in a custom paint supplied by DuPont.

Under the carbon-fiber hood sits the potent 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine topped off with a Vortech V-3 Si supercharging system packing 605 horsepower and 473 lb.-ft. with 7.5 psi of boost. Other upgrades include:

Webasto custom electronic sunroof
Wheels and tires: iForged Icon three-piece wheels – 20- x 9-inch front, 20- x 11-inch rear (black chrome centers with flat black lips) wrapped in Falken Azenis FK453 tires (275/40/20 front, 315/35/20 rear)
Suspension and braking: Custom powder-coated Maximum Motorsports Road & Track box suspension package and Baer 6S six-piston brakes at all four corners
