WD-40®/SEMA Cares Mustang Build

wd40 sema

With a 5.0-liter V8 engine that produces about 600 horsepower and a paint job that truly represents the WD-40® brand, the WD-40 /SEMA Cares Mustang has both power and style. Leading automotive aftermarket manufacturers and other companies from around the world pitched in to give this custom 2011 Ford Mustang GT exceptional performance and a distinctive WD-40 look!

After its unveiling at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas in November, the vehicle appeared at select West Coast auto-related events and was auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Classic Car Show and Auction Jan. 22 in Scottsdale, Ariz. The vehicle sold for $100,000 with several additional donations, and all proceeds are going to Childhelp®, an organization that provides services to abused and neglected children, and The Victory Junction Gang® Camp, which provides life-changing camping experiences for disabled and chronically ill children.

The Build

A lot of work goes into building a custom vehicle, and the WD-40sub>®/SEMA Cares Mustang is no exception. We wanted to build a one-of-a-kind vehicle with a dynamic look and exceptional performance to be auctioned off to help children in need.
