As you all know from various @motormartin1 tweets and news posts, here at MotorMartin Towers we do love the Ford Mustang, even the slightly less desirable 1980s models have something for the Mustang fan in your life to salivate over. And the release of the brand new UK spec RHD models last year definitely have that undefinable something that has always picked out the Ford Mustang as being rather special.

And now, if the 416bhp of the standard UK Mustang just isn’t enough (really?) you’re now in luck as the renowned supercar dealer Clive Sutton has revealed its Sutton Bespoke tuning programme for the new right-hand drive Ford Mustang, transforming the standard model into a true muscle car with up to 700bhp. The programme comprises a suite of packages that enhance the car’s performance, handling and styling.

Clive Sutton have shared with MotorMartin that, while the focus with many American upgrade programmes is on straight-line performance and quarter-mile times, they have carefully engineered their packages to appeal specifically to UK and European buyers. The upgraded suspension is a particular highlight, which delivers sharper on-the-limit handling without compromising comfort over broken road surfaces. 

They have Alison mentioned that the Sutton Bespoke Power Packages are offered in CS350, CS500 and supercharged CS700 specification. The first applies only to the 2.3-litre EcoBoost model, while the latter two are for Ford’s 5.0-litre V8, delivering thrilling levels of performance and response. Excellent news for all muscle car fans.

MotorMartin has been made aware that the range-topping CS700 Power Package delivers a dramatic increase in the peak power of the standard car’s V8, lifting it from 416bhp to 645bhp – a rise of 55%. This is achieved through the addition of a Whipple supercharger, upgraded intercooler and a new quad-tailpipe active exhaust system. Performance can be taken to an even higher level by specifying a larger throttle body, uprated injectors and a different pulley – which together take peak power to over 700bhp, a 68% increase over the standard car. Clive Sutton worked hand-in-hand with Whipple Superchargers, based in Fresno, CA, to develop the supercharger and tune the engine for optimal reliability and performance.

The CS500 Power Package incorporates an upgraded cold-air intake, helping to lift peak power to 440bhp. For buyers of the 2.3-litre EcoBoost, the Sutton Mustang CS350 Power Package improves the standard figures to 330bhp. These packages also share the CS700’s quad-tailpipe active exhaust system and bespoke rear valance.

All of the Power Packages feature Active Exhaust Control. Activated by a switch located on the centre console, the system allows the driver to adjust the volume and tone of the exhaust sound, choosing from Touring, Sport, Track and Custom settings. The Custom mode is programmable via a built-in WiFi module and an associated Apple iOS app. 

Customers can specify handling modifications that complement the power upgrades. These include a Sutton Bespoke Ride Package that includes KW coilovers and adjustable springs at the front, with matched dampers at the rear, reducing ride height by 30mm.

Now MotorMartin already thinks that the standard UK Mustang looks fantastic but popular opinion is that with a few tweaks here and there the UK Ford can be made to look even more spectacular. Clive Sutton have already recognised this and have made the following additions available on all models. The optional Appearance Package includes a carbon fibre decklid panel, chin spoiler, rear wing and side skirts; painted wing mirrors, gloss black ‘Pony’ emblem and – for the V8 – gloss black ‘5.0’ wing motifs. A Brake Package with uprated discs is also offered, featuring two-piece rotors that reduce mass and improve heat management. New 20-inch, 10-spoke custom finished gloss black alloy rims supplied by Vossen fill the wheel arches and look superb.

Still not enough? Further personalisation can be achieved through the Individual Options list, which includes a bespoke carbon fibre bonnet with functional ‘ram air’ scoop and carbon fibre rear window louvres. For the interior the options include an eye-catching four-piece carbon fibre dashboard and a high-power audio system.

Sutton Bespoke have said that they will also be offering a ‘tailor-made’ service, giving customers the chance to create their own unique Ford Mustang. The packages can be supplied either to existing owners or as a complete service, with the base Ford Mustang vehicle sourced for the client. Attractive funding options are available to enable the car and the upgrade package to be financed together. Excellent news and this will certainly makes things easier to sort out for those lucky enough to be able to take advantage of these fantastic additions.

It’s quite clear that Clive Sutton has been at the forefront of the performance car retail industry for over 25 years and as the founder of a renowned independent specialist car business in St John’s Wood, London, Clive Sutton has built an unrivalled reputation for supplying some of the most sought after cars in the world. The company is able to source rare and prestige new and classic cars from across the globe, often to order.

Clive Sutton have shared with MotorMartin that with more than two decades of experience in providing UK buyers with tuning packages from Shelby, Roush, Hennessy and Saleen, they have recognised the opportunity to use their team’s expertise and knowledge to create bespoke packages. After all, Clive Sutton was the first company in the UK to supercharge the 2005 Ford GT, transforming the 550bhp to a remarkable 730bhp. The Sutton Mustang performance and tuning programme is the latest offering from the company’s specialist team, and has been developed to appeal to UK and European buyers in particular.
