The Revology Mustang replica is not simply a copy of the original car. Revology’s founder, Tom Scarpello, calls his version a “postmodern interpretation” of the original Mustang. He explains: “It is easy to see why the original Mustang is a classic. Fifty years later, it still looks great from any angle. But automotive technology has advanced a lot in 50 years, and from a functional perspective, these old cars are truly outdated. At Revology, we keep the style and character of the original car, while seamlessly integrating modern technology and materials to improve performance, safety, reliability, and comfort.”

Numerous details highlight the effort to maintain the integrity of the original design, including cower window switches cleverly disguised as  the original window crank handle, an electronic instrument cluster with message center and LED lighting integrated into the original five-dial bezel, along with USB and AUX jacks hidden in the ashtray.

The Revology Mustang replica is powered by a fuel injected 5.0 liter V- 8 engine, featuring a modern electronic engine management system. An electronically controlled automatic or a manual transmission can be specified. The front suspension is MacPherson strut and the rear end is a three-link design, developed by supplier RRS of Australia specifically for this application. The three-link design offers an excellent balance of performance and ride quality, which is a key reason the design was used on the Ford Mustang from 2005 until the introduction of independent rear suspension in 2015. Other upgrades include power four-wheel disc brakes and power rack and pinion steering.

The Revology Mustang replica features an all-new steel body, produced by Dynacorn and licensed by Ford. Revology makes several proprietary changes to the body in order to integrate the modern components. “We started with a licensed original body because it is authentic,” says Scarpello. “You can literally unbolt a piece from a Revology Mustang replica and bolt it to an original Mustang and it will fit.

The Revology Mustang replica base price is $119,500 FOB Winter Park, FL. It is available in both convertible and fastback body styles. Revology Cars is accepting orders now for delivery in Spring 2016. Visit www.revologycars.com for details
