CR Supercars are dedicated to handcrafting turn-key supercars that fuse classic styling from the golden age of American muscle cars with the latest high-tech engine and chassis components. Their first offering was on display at the 2014 SEMA Show called Villain and the turn-key supercar is based on a 1968 Ford Mustang. The Villain marks an exciting departure for Classic Recreations, who are a company known for its world-renowned Shelby continuation cars.
In order to create these resto-mods 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 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 and improves aerodynamics while reducing overall 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 resto-mod.
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.
The Villain marks the next level in performance from Classic Recreations. Its CR Supercars division is developing other exciting advanced-technology tribute cars. We look forward to another CR Supercars debut in the near future.
