The story about this crazy B is for Build’s widebody mid-engine 1967 Mustang Fastback starts with the Bugatti Veyron which was set for the Need For Speed movie (2014). A custom project builder, Chris Steinbacher from B is for Build, YouTube exhibited this crazy mid-engine 1967 Mustang at the SEMA Show held on last month and was able to create wild excitement.
It became famous enough to go here and there on the internet like wildfire. So, Let’s talk about B Is For Build’s widebody mid-engine 1967 Mustang Fastback and how much did it cost.
This mid-engine 1967 Mustang was a Bugatti Veyron before
For review purposes, this crazy build was not scheduled for the 2022 SEMA Show. However, this mid-engine 1967 Mustang was a Bugatti Veyron during the filming of the Need For Speed movie. Have you seen the film? Do you remember the black and orange Bugatti Veyron? Yes, That’s the Bugatti Veyron that is t-boned by a police car in the final race. This is it!
However, it wasn’t a real million-dollar Bugatti Veyron. It was a replica with a fiberglass body. Actually, Nobody wants to destroy a car worth millions of dollars for a few minutes of a scene in a movie. After completing its role in the movie, it was almost completely destroyed. Chris Steinbacher said that the entire body was broken, and a few other parts of the donor car were also broken. Chris bought it for $15,500 and began the project of converting it to a mid-engine 67 Mustang. But that wasn’t enough for him.
Karan Adivi’s Ford Mustang BOSS 302 rendering art
This is where Karan’s BOSS 302 rendering art relates to this. With Chris’ attention to Karan Adivi’s Ford Mustang BOSS 302 rendering, he was able to turn digital art into a reality. It’s not easy to turn rendering art into something in the real world. There should be a lot of work and enthusiasm for it. Just like theF1-inspired 1930 Ford Model A Rat Rodwe presented before.
Finally, Chris did it anyway. This widebody mid-engine 1967 Mustang Fastback is powered by a Chevrolet LS V8 Crate Motor. And also, this amazing build is the final artwork of hard work and dedication by Chris Steinbacher and his team at B is for Build.
