Our main Steeda SSV (Steeda Serialised Vehicles) dealer, Haynes Ford of Maidstone, have put together this lovely Grabber Blue 2.3 Ecoboost demonstrator to both grab your attention and to prove that the Ecoboost is not the "lesser" Mustang, just a different beast to the GT V8.
We think you will agree they have made some stunning choices, going well beyond the Steeda Q350 Sport's base pack with some tasteful additions to create a cracking car which performs as well as it looks.
The grabber blue contrasts beautifully with the subtle Steeda Q350 graphics package of Sidewinder Stripe and colour coded windscreen decal, while the gloss black roof matches the Steeda gloss black Q Series rear spoiler and Steeda ST-R 20" wheels sitting snug on Steeda Progressive Sport Springs complete the look.
Subtle details like the Diode Dynamics smoked rear sidemarkers add to the "factory plus" ethos that marks out Steeda creations, and the rear STEEDA decklid nomenclature shows that this is a true blue (don't excuse the pun) SSV creation.
Peeking out below the diffuser is a Magnaflow Street catback - our recommended choice for the Ecoboost Mustang. It looks great and sounds great and helps free up performance from the Ford 2.3 Ecoboost turbocharged powertrain.
The interior hasn't been excluded from attention either with the lucky driver getting to grip a Ford GT350 alcantara clad steering wheel, and shift via a Steeda "Cue Ball" shift knob sitting on a Steeda billet aluminium shift collar. No matter whether you are sitting in traffic or at the track, tactile upgrades like these can be appreciated every time you drive.
The lesser weight of the 2.3 Ecoboost engine means this Mustang enjoys fantastic front end handling, allowing for a sharper turn in and later braking, all of course optimised by the Steeda suspension mods the Q350 enjoys, based around the Steeda Progressive Springs and IRS base pack, and including an optional Steeda Strut Tower Brace up front to help liven up the engine bay. Steeda hood struts help show it off, alongside the Steeda Pro Flow Cold Air intake.
Robbie Dunn, Haynes's Steeda product specialist, was very impressed after comparing the Q350 to a GT on a Steeda Driving Experience session, noting how well the Q350 performed.
So what are you waiting for?! Get along to Haynes to book a test drive and start planning your own Q Series Mustang. Q350 Sport, Q500 Enforcer or even the mighty Q750 StreetFighter. Haynes will help you choose right!
Haynes have also made this great little walk around vid to help experience the Q350. Enjoy!
