New service by UK-based luxury motor dealer will provide ground-up restorations of classic American muscle car


A custom restoration programme for the classic Ford Mustang was launched today by a UK luxury motor dealer.

Announced at the London Motor Show, the service from Clive Sutton will look to restore and improve the iconic American muscle car, with customers able to choose from a variety of options to make their project unique.

The first example – a GT500CS – was showcased at the event today.

Built on a regular and original 1967 Mustang chassis, the ‘restomod’ vehicle has been restored from the ground up. Under the bonnet sits a 5.4-litre V8 producing 518bhp thanks to racing pistons and a high-performance crankshaft.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a modern five-speed manual gearbox and is linked to a limited-slip differential. The suspension has been extensively overhauled, too, with adjustable coil-overs fitted, allowing drivers to tailor the ride to their liking. The Mustang also features power steering for easier low-speed manoeuvring.

The interior has been refinished as well. The classic dials have been modernised with LED gauges, while the dashboard has been trimmed in carbon fibre. It even features ultra-modern touches such as an Apple CarPlay-equipped infotainment system.

Commissions can now be discussed with Sutton Bespoke, with prices ranging from £190,000 to £300,000 depending on individual specification. The GT500CS on display at today’s show has a total build price of £250,000.
