ZeroTo60 Mustang GTT Is An Alternative To A Proper Ford GT
The Mustang GTT is here to meet all your low-budget Ford GT needs
Updated October 15, 2018
ZeroTo60 Designs will ride in hard and bold at the SEMA Show floor this week. They will unveil five cars – 2017 Mustang GTT, 2017 Toyota Tundra, 2017 Alkane Dominator, 1975 Ford Bronco, 2017 Hyundai Tucson Ultimate Offroad. As for now, the Mustang GTT is a flagship of the lot. True, it looks rather strange, but ZeroTo60 designers have quite a nice story attached to it. Obviously, crafted as a tribute or an accolade to the magnificent new 2017 Ford GT. Or, in other words, if you haven’t received an invitation to buy the real Ford GT, please feel free to dial ZeroTo60 and make them build you a replacement – this Mustang GTT.
ZeroTo60 dramatically differentiated Mustang GTT from the stock Mustang. It does not look familiar looking at it from the back. The front, thanks to well-known lights is more like it, but it still is a bold piece of design. The designers wanted to translate many signature design and styling causes from the Ford GT to the Mustang GT. In this regard, they not only created a new body kit (bumpers and skirts). They went the extra mile and changed the appearance of the whole car.
The elongated new bonnet features two massive hot air extractors for keeping the engine bay cool. The front grille, along with the sharper bonnet, is nicely designed to remind us all of the Ford GT sharp nose. There sits a massive air intake of the front bumper.
The sides have some Ford GT influence as well. Not only do the skirts and small air intakes at the back of the Mustang GTT remind of those on the supercar, but ZeroTo60 succeeded in integrating large air intakes just behind the doors on the rear fenders. These, as on the original GT, lead the air to the rear brakes providing even more efficient cooling at higher speeds.
If this was not enough to link the Mustang GTT with the Ford GT, then please glance at the back. Totally different compared to anything we have seen before on Mustang cars. Double round rear lights, a prominent ducktail, a massive diffuser and a finely centered double exhaust are all supposed to be throwbacks at the Ford GT. Actually, the lower part of the bumper is almost a carbon copy. See the side air vents and interestingly framed diffuser. Ford GT inspired design causes for sure.
No, it does not look the same, but the Mustang GTT certainly has enough details linking it with the real deal.
What we would like is to see it powered by an EcoBoost engine. And no, we are not thinking about the one from the Focus RS, but about the V6 EcoBoost. ZeroTo60 Design could do it if they had more time. Yet, it seems they finished the project in only six weeks. This is not exactly plenty of time to get rid of the Coyote 5.0 V8. After it all, they should have installed a V6 EcoBoost. Luckily, they did something cool with the Coyote engine. Thanks to the magic of ProCharger supercharger and PCT Performance management system, the Coyote churns out 800hp. This is almost 200hp more than the engine in the Ford GT.
Other mods include Brembo brakes, Eibach Pro-Street-S suspension, Magnaflow dual-flow exhaust and HRE Performance P204 Brushed Titanium wheels with Pirelli P-Zero 22×9.5 (front) and 22×11 (rear) tires.
What does GTT stand for?
You see, GTT stands for Grand Turismo Tribute because this car is a tribute to the Ford GT proper. No, it’s not a typo. Yes, it is fast as hell
ZeroTo60 chief in charge, Kenny Pfitzer was so pleased that he said: “Zero to 60 sought to create an aspirational vehicle that demonstrates the performance, control, and excitement that is possible with a modern muscle car. We have poured our passion and innovation into the GTT in an effort to deliver a truly amazing driving experience, and we’re honored to present the Production Prototype of our car at the SEMA Show.”
Yes, you’ve read that right – Production prototype. They will build a limited number of them and sell them in selected Southern California Ford dealerships.
