H&R Springs FMJ Mustang

H&R Springs FMJ Mustang

Inspired the 1960's movie Bullitt, the German based automotive suspension company H&R Springs has created this stunning steed dubbed the FMJ Mustang. The FMJ namesake is short for Full Metal Jacket which refers to a specific design of Bullitt bullet. The subtle ‘less is more' styling of the Bullitt era is embodied by the FMJ project. Subtle styling cues include the custom black satin finish Shelby billet grille and California front spoiler with custom purpose built front splitter. In the back of FMJ a carbon fiber rear lip hides the factory third brake light and an integral LED brake light has been seamlessly integrated into the rear of the awesome all-glass Glassback roof. This "subtle", yet distinct, H&R built Mustang is most notably set apart from the pack of gaudily painted and stickered custom Mustangs with its restrained light grey paint - a 1950's Porsche 356 Speedster color.

The FMJ Mustang incorporates a few power upgrades including a high flow stainless steel H-Pipe, Flowmaster mufflers, MRT cold air intake system, and an SCT retuned engine control computer. To quicken acceleration times H&R also added a set of 3.73:1 gears to the rear end which is now enclosed with a new Ford Racing differential cover and powder coated body color.

The H&R FMJ Mustang isn't just fast in a straight line though. H&R has developed premium suspension and sway bars for the Ford Mustang GT that elevates the FMJ handling into a league of its own. Unmatched performance and comfort is provided by specially designed height adjustable H&R coil overs for the Mustang GT, allowing both front and rear ride height adjustment. The rear is fitted with easy to use H&R exclusive height adjusters that allow easy adjustment to the rear ride height. Huge H&R sway bars, measuring 36mm front and 26mm rear, minimize body roll and increase traction in the turns, allowing FMJ to harness the full performance potential of its massive wheels and tires; Custom O.Z. Superleggera III wheels with matching satin black centers from the Tire Rack, measuring 9 x 20 inches front and 11.5 x 20 inches rear, allow the fitment of stream roller sized Pirelli Pzero tires - 275/35R 20 front and 315/35R 20. The tread width of each rear tire measures 12.6-inches making a combined width of more than 25-inches of rubber on the ground!

To harness the full potential of the tremendous amount of rubber on the ground, massive Baer brakes were fitted with rotors that measure 15-inches up front and 14-inches in the rear. Bright orange painted calipers create a nice accent and provide a good indicator of the stopping potential hidden within.

And of course no serious project vehicle is complete without interior modifications and the FMJ Mustang is as serious as they come. The interior features an over-the-top look with its dark brown stressed leather and diamond stitch pattern on the seats, door panels, and center console. A complete Pioneer Premier Audio system was installed for optimum sound imaging. Controlled by a Pioneer DEH-P880PRS head unit, the system features three Pioneer amps for a total of 2400 watts power, interior style matched tweeters, and a 12-inch sub. All the components were chosen for their clean lines and visuals that match the FMJ project theme perfectly, controls all. A few finishing touches to the interior include a Custom gauge panel above the head unit - fitted with three Autometer Cobalt gauges: Volt, Vacuum, and Engine/Diffential Oil temperature - and an MRT orange shift knob.
