This handmade muscle car is fun sized, just in time for Halloween!
The reasons we love automotive enthusiasts are vast, but a big one is how innovative the community tends to be, as a whole. There’s nothing in the world that brings as many diverse creations and variations as the car community, and it seems to be even more so prevalent in the muscle car community. One trend we’ve been really into lately has been the mini muscle car trend. Hear us out: Big power, little body car, enough said. This build is just that, and if you’re not particularly found of the idea of driving a V8 powered go-kart, because you’re not insane, this is a great alternative so you still get the lightweight quickstepping characteristics with the thrill of the V8 rumble.
Made by a company, appropriately, called Mini Muscle Cars, the 80-percent size Ford Falcon XB GT Coupe and HQ Coupe both took some serious dedication. The mini muscle cars are made from custom fiberglass bodies in the shop, and are made so they can be removed and also to fit the standard frame chassis. The 20-percent reduction in size is not wasted on the 4.0-liter Rover V8 engines, which are backed by sequential 6-speed transmissions. To give the driver full control, they ride on fully adjustable suspensions, which is basically a necessity with these kinds of builds. The combination of a little over 1,7000 pounds and 200 horsepower is devilishly fun, for a fraction of the space.
The mini muscle car replicas are not a new trend, but these cars are particularly practically in their segment. Could they open the doors to new mini Mustangs, or Dodge Chargers? We hope so, but in the meantime, we’ll admire the craftsmanship of these prototypes.
