The big screen adaptation of the Need For Speed video game franchise isn’t due until March, but we got a chance to check out the Ford Mustang that plays the lead hero car role in the film during the Detroit Auto Show last week.

The film version of the iconic Ford muscle car is modified with widebody kit, 22-inch wheels, larger air intakes and twin hood nostrils; and is powered by a supercharged V8 based on the Shelby GT500.

Be sure to look out for the Ford Mustang “Need For Speed” Edition in the upcoming Need For Speed film, which hits theaters March 14.
