Revology Cars Mustang Replicas Head to Production
Revology Mustang Replica Production Ramps Up: With final production specs in place, Revology is working on filling a backlog of customer orders
The whole world, it seems like, has been waiting for Revology Cars to actually start building its Mustang replica. Early on “Internet Experts” everywhere were questioning would the company actually pull off such a monumental process of building a full reengineered classic Mustang with modern amenities, safety, and performance. We’ll freely admit we were a tad skeptical as well, but Revology Cars has started production on its first customer cars in August 2015 and is currently working through a fairly decent backlog of build orders.
The unveiling of the Revology Cars Mustang at the Amelia Island concours in March 2015 created an order frenzy, but Revology was still finalizing build parameters, options, and more at the time. Notes Tom Scarpello, Revology founder and CEO, “Now it is very exciting to hit our next milestone, the start of production” says Scarpello. “The team has worked very hard to make this happen. Launching a new car company is a significant achievement. We were overwhelmed with the customer response since the reveal of our concept car in March, but needed the past several months to complete all of the development work and gear up for production. Luckily, our customers have been very patient as we methodically follow these steps.”
The final product specifications, which vary in several areas from the original concept car shown in March 2015, have been released. These final specs show that Revology Cars will be offering two versions of their 1965-1966 Mustang replica—the Premium and the GT. “The Premium version is a well-balanced car, with excellent performance yet with a supple ride and isolation from road noise. The GT is for customers who are willing to trade off a little comfort for increased performance,” says Dan Maas, Revology’s technical director. “When you have a Mustang with the power-to-weight ratio of a Ferrari F355, you need a capable chassis to harness that performance.” Of course the Premium and GT product lines are just the beginning, as several configurations of each line are available for ordering by the customer. To see all of these configuration options, just hit Revology Cars’ website at www.revologycars.com and take a peek at the order forms, equipment package contents, and options guides there, including full pricing information.
Over the next 12 months Revology Cars will be increasing production of its Mustang replica to be able to deliver a minimum of three units per month. Currently orders are coming in from all over the globe. “The first Revology Mustang is a triple-black 1966 convertible with the Coyote 5.0L engine, destined for a customer in Ethiopia,” says Scarpello. “Right now, 40 percent of our production is going overseas. Enthusiasts worldwide love the Mustang, and they love what we’re doing with it.” As Mustang replica production ramps up Revology Cars will also be working on bringing the rest of the company’s divisions online for upgrades to existing classic Mustangs, parts sales, and service too.
