Ford Set To Unleash Five Custom Mustang Builds At The SEMA Show

Fall is in the air and that can only mean one thing, it’s time to start looking forward to the SEMA Show. Held the first week of November in Las Vegas, Nevada, it brings forth the entire automotive aftermarket to Sin City. Ford has long supported the event with a host of custom vehicles. This year the company will have more than 50 vehicles around the convention center, and five of those will be custom Mustangs.

Among the builders creating these flashy S550s are Bojix Design, CJ Pony Parts, CGS Motorsports, Galpin Autosports, and TJIN Edition. These companies started with EcoBoost- or Coyote-powered Mustangs and modded them to stand out on the crowded trade-show floor.

Bojix Design

A regular SEMA builder, Bojix Design has created a bold, blue Mustang for this year’s show that is designed for all-around performance headlined by a generous dose of ProCharger boost.

“Subtlety be damned, this flashy 2018 Mustang GT will draw crowds everywhere it goes even amongst the wild designs of the SEMA Show,” says Ford. “Bojix brings us another showstopper in stimulating two-tone blue and gray with wide, 20-inch Savini wheels putting the appeal to the pavement. A rear seat-delete and upgraded aero elements emphasize this pony car is both show and go.”

CGS Motorsports

Clean and more subtle than is prior, pro street-inspired SEMA Stallion, CGS Motorspots’ latest build is another all-around performance packing boost. This example rocks the Ford Performance/Roush TVS unit.

“CGS Motorsports brings tasteful modifications to a 2018 Mustang GT with this clean interpretation of modern muscle. Large, 410mm rotors combine with six-piston Brembo calipers to deliver the stopping power necessary to properly tame this vicious steed,” says Ford. “Nighttime driving in this supercharged Mustang is a well-illuminated affair thanks to unique LED lighting from a complete conversion by Diode Dynamics to Rigid undercar lighting. Everyone from night owls to track rats can prowl or stalk tracks in this stylishly sinister Mustang.”
