|Steeda Q550 Mustang|
The Los Angeles Auto Show was the forum for the world debut of an all-new ultimate street performance vehicle: The 2010 Steeda Q550 Streetfighter Edition. Destined to reign supreme in the Pony Wars - this high performance muscle machine is part of our continuous evolution of Steeda Autosports building the best performing Mustangs available anywhere. Conceived as the ideal Mustang that can be comfortably driven daily, it has all the necessary equipment to be a weekend warrior on the racetrack/drag-strip without worry.
Equipped with the most extensive amount of standard suspension upgrades ever included on one of Steeda's production vehicles - including the Watt's Link Suspension system - this performance Mustang can easily pull 1.2gs, and with it's broad range of brutal power it has on demand, it can rip off 0-60 times that are less than 4 seconds with quarter mile times comfortably in the 11 second range. There is simply no other serialized Mustang available today that offers the performance, styling, and performance attitude that this Mustang has.
"The Steeda Q550 Streetfighter achieves its massive power output from the Ford Racing/Whipple Supercharger assembly. We selected the Ford Racing/Whipple supercharger application because it provides its power reliably over a broad rpm range on 93 octane fuel and is fully 50 state emission legal", commented Dario Orlando, President of Steeda Autosports. "Delivering smooth power throughout the power curve is what this power package provides and it is a perfect power source for the Steeda Q550 Streetfighter Edition. When mated with Steeda's unique performance pulley system and other engine performance enhancements, this package really delivers the mail!
Jamie Allison, Ford Racing Performance Group Manager adds: "Dario Orlando and the entire team at Steeda Autosports have been a longtime and valued partner of Ford Racing and have many aftermarket offerings to choose from. We are excited and proud that they chose the FR 550HP supercharger to power their new Q550 Streetfighter Edition".
Engine power is just part of the success story about the Q550 Streetfighter. While the exterior shares the same aerodynamic body modifications of the Q350 with the unique Steeda front fascia with openings for front brake duct cooling, the facia also incorporates unique vented openings for additional cooling.
"The real beauty of this performance monster lies underneath the vehicle. That is where we deployed every performance handling trick we have in our arsenal" commented Steve Chichisola, Master Mechanic/Technician at Steeda Autosports. "We have integrated the knowledgebase we acquired over the last 21 continuous years of building high performance Mustangs - more than any other Mustang aftermarket modifier - all into one fully cohesive package where ALL the parts are perfectly tuned to work in harmony towards delivering maximum suspension performance."
The interior is yet another area where this vehicle speaks performance. Inside you will find it's interior very sleek, athletic, and totally ready for aggressive driving. From the illuminated Steeda doors sills that greet you when you open the door, the interior includes the following performance related amenities: a thick, Alcantara leather wrapped steering wheel assures a firm and secure grip during performance maneuvers, body hugging, adjustable, leather covered, carbon fiber backed Steeda Sport Seats, safecraft Safety Equipment 6-Point Safety Harness, Safecraft fire extinguisher system, four-point, leather wrapped DOM steel roll bar with cross bracing, Steeda floor mats
