NORTH PALM BEACH – Picture yourself behind the wheel of a sleek Mustang 66 GT Fastback 2+2 or a classic Mustang 66 Shelby GT350. Now imagine the stir you’d cause if you rolled up to a crowd and gunned the engine.
It doesn’t have to be a teenager’s pipedream.
Revology, of Orlando, is building state-of-the art classic Mustang reproductions that look like nothing you’ve ever seen. The cars are marketed as a combination of a classic American icon and a modern performance luxury Car. They’re retro on the outside and modern under the hood. Turn the key for the ride of your life.
“We took the car of your dreams and turned it into the car of your adulthood fantasy,” said Yoshi Amano, marketing director for Revology.
Florida Fine Cars caught up with Revology at a recent Cars and Coffee car meet to find out what makes these cars so special.
Revology Lets Drivers Navigate Memory Lane in Comfort
Revology produces two new vehicles a month and has delivered 21 since the company opened in 2014. Cost? About $160,000 apiece. The company is licensed by Ford and Shelby American to produce the cars.
On this day, an ivy green metallic 1965 Mustang GT2+2 Fastback on display was causing a stir. The car’s rich leather interior and Coyote 5.0 engine with 435 HP were turning heads. The classic looks and retro interior took many admirers down memory lane.
“The drive train and everything else is installed with all modern components, like disc brakes,” Amano explained. “Some people are (very) surprised.”
With features like sophisticated double-wishbone front suspension, precise rack and pinion steering, four-wheel disc brakes and a powerful, efficient V-8 engine, the Revology Mustang drives like there’s no tomorrow. Both models come standard with air conditioning.
Face it: driving a 50+ year old car comes with plenty of bumps and lumps. Revology cars are fun because they look like antiques but drive like hot rods.
“If someone wants to restore an older car like this to bring it backup to this level, it’s going to easily cost as much as these cars or more,” Amano noted.
And the restored car STILL won’t have the comforts, driveability, and amenities of Revology cars because they will STILL be 50+ years old.
Retro Reproductions Disguise Edgy Amenities to Retain Vintage Look
Revology customers buy the cars because they love the collectable looks AND they can drive them as easily as any other car that just came off the production line, Amano explained.
The seats, for example, look vintage, but have power controls so they can easily be adjusted. The cars have power windows, but the window control is concealed in a switch that looks like an old-fashioned window crank.
The dashboard gauges also look vintage but are illuminated with LED lights.
So who buys these stunning spot-on replicas that are equipped with all the modern conveniences of the cars of today?
People who are bored with high end cars like Ferraris and Lamborghinis and Aston Martins, according to Revology.
“Those cars are everywhere,” Amano said. “These are unique not only because they look classic but they drive like a new car. The engine is modern.”
