A few weeks back, Robert Romo brought out his incredible ruby red S550 Ford Mustang GT to our fifteen52 x ModBargains meet, held right here at our shop, ModAuto back on March 13th. From the moment you see this thing you know it is by no means your average Mustang.

From the moment you see that bigass intercooler, you know it’s beastly. That’s a Vortech V3 Supercharger with Air-To-Air Intercooler forcefeeding that already-angry Coyote 5.0 V8.

Even in a field of modified cars, Robert’s Mustang is the type of car that makes people stop and stare – a true ‘neckbreaker’.

Sitting on a set of Air Lift Performance Airbags, the Mustang gets impossibly low.

Wearing a wild widebody kit to accommodate massive wheels with super beefy Toyo R888 Tires with 285s in the front and 315s in the rear, this is one stanced car that still manages beefy tires, and damn does it look good.

Sitting preposterously low on Air Lift Performance bags, the Brembo brakes and R1 Concepts Rotors can bring this beast to a halt just as quickly as the Vortech Superchargers V3 supercharger and air to air intercooler gets it to speed.

Just look at how much fender he’s tucking. It’s incredible.

That’s one mean mug.

Let’s take a look under the hood and get a gander at the Vortech Supercharger.

We needed to get a better look at the details that went into Robert’s ponycar, so we brought it out of the sun and into the shop to take a few photos. Check out the gratuitous photo gallery below.

The bolt-on fender flares that give the Mustang Widebody its look are from Stage 3 Performance, not Rocket Bunny like all the widebodys seem to be these days, and the difference in style is clear, erring in a more muscular direction than JDM-tyte yo, perfectly appropriate for Mustang.

The car sports Diode Dynamics LEDs throughout, making the S550 Mustang’s lighting crisp and bright.

When you’re sponsored by Mother’s Polish, of course you have impossibly glossy “wet” paint.
