For the last fifty-five years, the Mustang has captured the hearts and minds of enthusiasts all over the United States and the entire world. Since its inception in 1964, automotive enthusiasts have been pulled to its unmistakable design, relentless powerplant, and motto of fast, fun, and freedom. All of these have helped the original pony car become a timeless legend amongst the entire automotive landscape. Within the last twenty years, especially the American stallion, has pushed further to new heights than could have ever been imagined. It couldn't more true than in 2015 when the S550 Mustang debut to the world in New York just as it did in 1964. Unlike Mustangs from the past five generations, the S550 was unlike any other in design, engineering, components, and performance.
Using characteristics from all generations of Mustang, the S550 is the first pony to have an accurate fastback profile that harkens back to the 1967 stallion. With new technology such as the Gen II & III Coyote engines, SYNC 3, independent rear suspension, and better handling create the most advanced pony to ever come out of the stable. Tying all of this technology, American engineering, and prestige has helped enthusiasts take the pony to new heights. Since then, Steeda has been pushing the boundaries on what is capable of the modern pony. Working with our engineers, we have made strides to make the S550 Mustang the most capable stallion to ever come out of the stable in terms of power, suspension, style, and overall performance.
In the world American high-performance automotive, there isn't a more legendary car than the Mustang. Born in the height of rebellion in the 1960s, the original pony became the first car segmented for a younger demographic built based on fast, fun, and freedom. Upon its launch in New York in 1964, the Mustang was unlike any other vehicle ever to come from the blue oval. Named after the most prolific warbird to ever take to the skies in the P-51D Mustang, Gale Halderman and Lee Iacocca used the nameplate for imagery of freedom, power, and sophistication.
Moving forward fifty years later, Ford came at crossroads to revolutionize the legendary pony car once again. So in 2015, the Mustang team came together to come up with a stallion that would be unlike any other in Mustang history. Using characteristics from the past five generations, the S550 Mustang has become the most sophisticated pony to ever come out of the stable. Using all-new technology such as the first time to be standard in the independent rear suspension, it was the main character that helped America's favorite pony car become more capable than ever beforehand. Due to this modernization, Steeda was able to take advantage of the opportunity to push forward on making the S550 Mustang the most capable stallion ever to hit the street, canyon roads, and track. Our proprietary engineers used effective and innovative design to create a wide selection of performance parts, including cold air intakes, suspension, lowering springs, chassis reinforcement, and high-flow exhaust. All of the components combined help the S550 Mustang to become a heavyweight hitter amongst sports cars to its European and Japanese rivals.

Since 1967, the Shelby GT500 has been a legend of all-out American performance in the automotive world. The late great Carroll Shelby had a mission to take the once tame mule of a Mustang and give it the venom it needed to become an all-out racehorse. In 1965, Shelby began with the GT350 which was able to take the Mustang from show pony to race pony on the track. From this early success, he was able to take a vision of taking the Mustang to the king of the road. This vision finally became true when 1967 Shelby GT500 was unveiled with its monster 427 Cobra Jet V8, 4-Speed Manual Transmission, and upgraded suspension. The GT500 took the performance world by storm!
For over 40 years, the GT500 went on a hiatus from the world of American high-performance. It wasn't until 2007 that the Shelby GT500 made its triumphant return. Based on the new S197 platform, the new GT500 had a lot of expectations to live up to, and it sure did! With the engine derived from the almighty 2005-2006 Ford GT, Ford was keen on making sure this next generation of Shelby GT500 spit some serious venom. From there on the GT500 was available for the 8 years. The last year in 2014 was the most powerful to date making 662HP and capable of 200 MPH.
Finally, the Shelby GT500 made its glorious comeback in 2020 after much speculation for the last six years. Ford was out to make a statement amongst its competitors with this new snake. That mission was complete when Ford said that it would make 760 earth-shattering horsepower and have an industry-first dual-clutch transmission the first in any muscle in the segment.

With the S550 Mustang launch in full effect in 2015, Ford Performance knew that they had launched a goldmine. To take advantage of this opportunity, Ford Performance and Mustang engineers alike knew they had to go to new lengths to take on rivals such as the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Using lessons learned from the first decade of the Mustang and Carroll Shelby, Ford went to work, creating the first production built by Shelby GT350 constructed ever since 1965. In the early months of 2015, Ford Performance unveiled a long-awaited new addition to the long lineage of all-out track-ready Shelby's.

With that said, the all-new Mustang GT was the most powerful of any to come before it; something was still missing to the lineup in terms of a halo car. Luckily, thanks to the legendary serpent's fiftieth anniversary in the Shelby GT350, Ford took advantage of the opportunity to make it straight to the Camaro ZL1 and its competitor to show them who is the king of muscle and pony cars.
With a first-ever 5.2L FPC (Flat Plane Crank) Ti-VCT, 529 horsepower and 429 lb/ft of torque with a red line of 8,250 RPM, it was a complete first for any of the big three American auto manufacturers to build a production high-revving V8.
