Who wants a Lamborghini Gallardo-Ford Mustang crossbreed? A one-of-a-kind SEMA creation from the past – the 2009 Ford Lamborghini Tractorri Custom Coupe – is now for sale.
Well, it takes some courage, lots of free time and tons of wild thinking to pick up the all-American Ford Mustang coupe and put everything awesome about the quintessentially Italian Lamborghini Gallardo mechanicals into it. What you see in the images is a 2007 Ford Mustang coupe. But underneath those custom fabricated body panels one will find the engine, transmission, and mechanicals of a Lamborghini Gallardo. And its makers call it the 2009 Ford Lamborghini TractorriCustom Coupe. Fancy owning one?Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale 2019 auction will be the place to show up.
According to the description provided in the Barrett Jackson page for this weird Mustang-Gallardo crossbreed, it says the whole project cost a whopping $700,000. There is no reserve as to heads to the auction floor. Buta call to the bidder may fetch some info on how many briefcases of cash to bring if you are an old-fashioned drug lord in need of a fancy car for the garage.
The “Tractorri” is a reference to the humble tractor manufacturer beginnings of Ferrucio Lamborghini before he got pissed off by a certain Enzo Ferrari. The 2009 Ford Lamborghini Tractorri Custom Coupe is a rather loud tip of the hat to what Lamborghini used to do before it became the mighty Italian supercar maker of today.
It has got under 2600miles on the odometer. At least the new owner will put some more miles on this crazy build.
From a styling perspective, the Tractorri keeps most of the 2007 Ford Mustang design intact. But the story changes at the rear, with the entire rear section paying homage to the Lamborghini Gallardo. It doesn’t gel well with the overall design and to be honest it isn’t what we would have loved to see at the back. But, this is a madcap build to begin with and the weirdness factor really got a boost with that bizarre choice of rear fascia. We love the custom Tractorri Red color, by the way.
Mechanicals feature the 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V10engine from the Gallardo, mated with the same 6-speed automatic transmission of the Lambo. All wheel drive and front axle lift are in place, should you need them around. Interiors have got the same dashboard of the Italian supercar, only that it has been chopped and trimmed a bit so that it fits in the Mustang’sreal estate.
Final thoughts on the car. Do we like it or do we hate it? Not sure. You got to be in Joey’s shoes here. It’s like him having that dessert which Rachel made. “Custard, good. Jam, good. Beef, GOOD!”
