Say Hello To The Bad Guy: CR Supercars Villain

Jason Connor November 3, 2014 All Things Hoon 1 Comment

You probably recited this in your heads with your best Scarface Tony Montana impersonation, and I don’t blame you one bit. Classic Recreations is best known for its 1967 GT500 C.R. variants. The fact that each vehicle is entered into the Shelby Worldwide Registry demonstrates how high the quality is in each and every vehicle Classic Recreation produces.

The latest creation is no exception. Dubbed the CR Supercars Mustang Villain, it debuts at the 2014 SEMA Show and is the first model in the new CR Supercars lineup. Classic Recreations teamed up with Centerforce Clutches to create and debut the Villain and it’s sure to be quite the hit at this years show.

Once my own Mustang is done, I think we should line up for a little race. That time is not now though, so hop past the break for a bit more on this Pony car.

From CR Supercars;

The CR Supercars Mustang Villain starts life as an original 1968 Mustang Fastback. CR Supercars strips the car to a bare shell then updates the iconic sheet metal with new composite body panels that are crafted using the latest 3D mold making technology. Accented with subtle carbon fiber trim, the design accentuates the Mustang fastback’s timeless lines but improves aerodynamics and reduces weight. Once the new panels are fit to the car, it undergoes a 2,500 man-hour transformation. The car is rebuilt using cutting-edge performance tech, hand-rubbed custom paint and a custom-stitched interior. All of that creates the ultimate sports car: more unique then an Italian exotic and faster than anything from Detroit.

The Mustang Villain will be offered in four models, each increasing substantially in power rating. The Villain will be powered by Ford Racing’s 420-HP all-aluminum DOHC 5.0L Coyote engine, which will be mated to a Tremec T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission through a Centerforce DYAD.

The Villain performs as well on a canyon road as it does in the quarter mile, thanks to a Detroit Speed Engineering suspension system that includes a hydro-formed Aluma-Frame fitted with Corvette-based A-arms, a QUADRAlink 4-link rear suspension and fully adjustable DSE/JRi coilovers. CR Supercars utilizes massive Wilwood six-piston 14-inch brakes at all four corners and sits them behind a custom set of 18-inch Grip Equipped Series Wheels by Forgeline.

Award-winning coachbuilder Classic Recreations have been modifying and custom fabricating high-performance vehicles for more than 10 years. Using that expertise, Classic Recreations founder Jason Engel created CR Supercars, a company with the mission of delivering a global, turnkey supercar that combines the modern reliability and performance of today’s high performers and the character of classic American muscle design.

    You'd think that they'd put IRS on it for that much money.
