We have seen a lot of weird stuff in the car world, but this surely has to take the cake?!
When you have a Lamborghini, but a Mustang is life…we still…can’t get our head around this one.
Okay so this is pretty much old news, but it popped up again when it came across our desk last week.
One crazy guy took modifying his car to a whole new level when he seemingly woke up one morning and wanted to turn his perfectly good Lamborghini Gallardo into a Ford Mustang.
Now we have to admit, the level of workmanship that went into this build is impressive, but it still poses the question “WHY!!!?”.
Code named “The Tractorri”, a Lamborghini Gallardo’s engine, drivetrain, and interior was transplanted to a 2007 Mustang body.
The build also involved using two Mustangs for parts and thousands of hours of labor fabricating custom one-off parts.
The Tractorri Gallardo Mustang uses the mid-engined all-wheel-drive powertrain, a 520 horsepower V10 monster. The car is powered by the 520hp V10.
The rear of the car was reworked with custom fabricated parts to imitate the Gallardo’s rear end to further add to the one-off design of the car. The Tractorri Gallardo was on display at the 2007 SEMA show for all to see. You can see that gallery here.
The finished result is certainly impressive, and no doubt handles and performs far better than the Mustang part of its donor, considering it retains all the same suspension, driveline and brakes.
Depending on where you are standing the pony goes from looking great to looking like a kid’s drawing.
According to the seller’s agent who posted the vehicle for sale: “The crown jewel of our private collection: The Tractorri. The short version? This is a body-in-white ’07 Mustang shell with the mechanicals from a Lamborghini Gallardo underneath. From the ABS to the AWD to the E-gear transmission everything works.”
“The long version adds two more Mustangs for parts, thousands of hours of labor and enough one-off parts to make most show cars blush. Oh, and our president drives it around—he put over 1500 miles on it this summer alone! Built and maintained by our own Rick Roush this is a werewolf in wolf’s clothing! Check out the pictures for now and we’ll have a full description of the build and show history up shortly!”
