SBC Modifier’s Kamran Rasheed transformed a Kia Spectra (also known as the Kia Sephia) into a Ford Mustang GT replica of sorts, complete with Lamborghini-style doors. This particular donor vehicle started out as a 2002 model year sedan, powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine making 126 hp and 108 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
For comparison purposes, a 2020 Ford Mustang GT Premium is powered by a 5.0L V8 making 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, mated to either a 10-speed automatic, TREMEC 6-speed manual, or a TREMEC 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Considering that the 2002 Kia Spectra looks nothing like the Ford Mustang GT and has four-doors instead of two, some heavy modification was required to get everything to look right. To the trained eye, many things about this replica look off, but most people on the road definitely would definitely look twice.
