Default Sneak Peek: 2010 Steeda Q Series Mustang

Legendary, Florida-based Ford tuner Steeda is best known for its quality Mustang transformations and aftermarket parts. The perennial centerpiece for its potent pony line has long been known as the Q, as in Q Ship, or to quote Lightning McQueen, “Quicker than quick.” Following tradition, the high-octane mechanical maestros have prepared a 2010 Steeda Q Series Mustangs, and the potent pony’s formal unveiling will be at the November Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas.

With hundreds of hours of computer-aided design (CAD) work completed, and extensive computer and wind tunnel analysis completed, as well as vigorous road coarse testing, Steeda is confident they have pushed the boundaries for its fabled Q Series.

Dario Orlando, the founder of Steeda Autosports, said, “In all of our Q Series of high-performance Mustangs, we never compromise or take shortcuts, our customers who demand maximum performance, bullet-proof reliability, and class-leading, race-honed styling wouldn’t have it any other way.”
Steeda is mum on details, but we know from past Q cars that their approach is thorough, with exterior and interior styling wrapped around serious powertrain and chassis upgrade. Given that the updated Mustang changed more in appearance than under the hood for 2010, it is safe to assume the previous round of power enhancements available last year will be offered, right up to (and possibly beyond) the 5.0-liter, 650-horsepower engine offered in the 2009 Q650.

No doubt, the production creation will be inspiring, and a good contender to face off against the 562-horsepower 2010 HPE550 Camaro from Hennessey Performance Engineering.

We’ll have to wait another month for the full scoop, but thought you’d appreciate a sneak peek now.

I always though Q-ship was a term for a Sleeper.

Q-ships came from WWII, where allies armed merchant ships to near battleship levels. They would lure German submarines to surface, and then unload on them.

'04 FXT is a proper Q-ship. Pretty much no Mustang could ever be one, especially painted red with huge graphics.
