Here at PerformanceDrive we love automotive ‘what-ifs’ – hypothetical vehicles that are an imaginative flight of fantasy. Witness the Falcon ST & RS as well as the Holden Cruze A9X to see what we mean.
Digital designer Abimelec Arallano has made a name for himself with his stellar creations garnering interest from all corners of the automotive world. These include a 1989 Jeep Cherokee given the Trackhawk treatment, a 1959 Cadillac Escalade, and a 1989 Dodge Daytona and Chrysler Imperial by Lamborghini – recalling a brief period where the Pentastar brand had ownership of the raging bull.
The 1990s was a real smorgasbord of fast Fords, no matter which part of the world you lived in. Europe had the Sierra and Escort RS Cosworth, while the SN-95 Mustang whet Americans’ appetite for the quintessential pony car.
Abimelec has mixed these two ingredients together to create a trans-Atlantic mash-up, resulting in the 1994 Ford Mustang RS Cosworth. The Frank Stephenson-designed ‘whale tail’ lends itself very well to the fourth-gen Mustang’s contours, begging the question why Ford didn’t consider this at the time.
Other noteworthy aspects include bonnet vents, white rally-style wheels, and the searing blue colour. Photos from Facebook show the car in silver, green, red and maroon as well. He has even included a how-to video (below) for budding designers to learn themselves, whereby he walks through the process on Blender, Quickshot and Photoshop.
