    Introducing the TVS 535R





    The Tickford TSV-535R vehicle enhancement package is our latest evolution of race-inspired engineering for the road.
    The bold blue stripes over a white body were made famous locally by the XC Falcon hardtop are a nod to the iconic American racing colours, recognisable on numerous historically significant racing cars since the 1950s.


    To continue this tradition this special vehicle has been released in conjunction with a one-off Tickford Racing livery to be raced by Mark Winterbottom and Dean Canto in the 2018 Supercheap Auto Bathurst 1000


    The TSV-535R package itself – applied to a white 2018/2019 Mustang Coupe GT, includes a carbon fibre aero kit, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres, unique seven spoke wheels, build specific Alcantara and nappa leather interior, a carbon fibre/leather steering wheel, and the classic blue American racing stripes, along with a plethora of performance upgrades, most notably the newly introduced ECU re-calibration, bulking the GT package to produce 400kW (535HP) of power and 632Nm of torque to the road. The engineering-led package also includes a 3-year/100,000 kilometre Tickford driveline warranty, and an individual special vehicle build plaque for each package sold.

    It makes it a 110k purchase or commitment and the second special or limited edition offering thats based on a white base.

    The 400kw kit can be had for a significant saving.

    Definitely one of the best looking out there. The blue accents above the wheels might be a touch too thick but that's part of the look. That's part of the package.

    I will reserve judgement till seeing it in the flesh and indeed the carbon treatment and interior but so far so good.

    I suppose the other thing too is that without the blue side treatment it's a very common mustang look.

    OTT twins white/blue, it's not exactly uncommon.

    It comes down to price and how much you want that look. It would not be a 78 special without it so I guess that's the point.

    It can be a cobra to some people but to others it might be something more traditional to mustang itself.

    Looks like they've introduced a different suspension supplier for the first time too.

    And the stripes. Other than that it will be very interesting.

    So for $2750 you get 400kw. This will sell its arse off.
    I for one will order this on my Mustang assuming of course it is still appropriated in 2 years.

    I could be wrong, but the "400kw" tune is $2750, the rest of the Cobra tribute is an extra $35K on top.

    Or for $10K you can get the 400kw tune, 20" wheels/tyres, and adjustable H+R suspension.
