"The 2009 Gran Turismo Awards winner, which brought a rare engine back to life in magnificent form."
Every year in November, customized cars from all over the United States gather at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the SEMA show, which has grown to be an event that is now on par with world-class motor shows. In the "SEMA Gran Turismo Awards" where the best customized, tuned cars in line with the "Cool & High Performance" philosophy of Gran Turismo are selected from the cars in display, Gran Turismo series producer Kazunori Yamauchi himself is the judge of the cars.
The winner of the 2009 award was a hot rod built with a 1970 Mustang body. Of course this is a body well known to all Americans, but on the inside this is a total racing car. Built with a space frame structure, the car is powered by a legendary Ford racing engine from the 1960s, mounted front midship. In NASCAR racing of the '60s where Chrysler HEMI engines were the dominant force, this SOHC engine dubbed the "Cammer" or "SOCC" (read as "sock"), was an engine specifically developed by Ford to defeat them. Though there are extremely few of these engines left today, the owner of the shop Phil Koenan just happened to come across a pristine engine in an obscure parts warehouse in California, and worked hard to bring the historical beast back to the present day; mounting it in the Mustang body which was extremely popular in the same era.
The 6,672 cc or 427ci V8 engine produces an incredible amount of power, approximately 660 HP. The drivetrain, suspension and brakes are all racing parts, and the body is made of lightweight FRP. With innovations such as the exhaust pipes that run through the side sills, the car is not just about nostalgia. This is a car packed with all the wishlist items and the passion of a true car enthusiast.
