Superformance MKIII roadster powered by the Mustang's 5.0L V8

by Drew Phillips

We were smitten with the Coyote 5.0-liter V8 the second we got behind the wheel of the 2011 Ford Mustang GT. We described the 412 horsepower engine as "a pot of pure honey" as well as "intoxicating," and said that the "5.0-liter V8 pulls like a jet airliner." With a curb weight of just over 3,600 pounds, the Mustang GT is not as bloated as the Camaro, but by no means a lightweight. Would we like the 5.0L even more if it had less mass to push around?

That's what Superformance had in mind with its latest creation. The maker of Shelby-licensed Cobra replicas has installed a Coyote 5.0-liter crate motor into one of its MKIII Roadsters, creating a combination of classic styling with the best of Ford's modern powertrains. The engine wedges snugly into the front of the car, and only a custom air intake and headers are all that are needed to make everything fit.

We stopped by Superformance to get a closer look at the car, and came away with some photos and even some video of it in action. Check out the high-res gallery of the car below.

We can think of countless combinations that, even though they haven’t been tried before, just sound right. You know, stuff that really show the meaning of “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” saying. Today, we are here to offer you an automotive example of this.

We are talking about the Superformance MKIII Mustang-powered roadster. This is a four-wheeled creation that mixes an AC Cobra replica with the ‘Stang GT’s 5.0-liter V8.
