2015 Mustang - 2.3 L Performance Prototype!
This 2015 Mustang 2.3L comes with a great story. When the new Sixth Generation Mustang was launched, we approached world famous COBB Tuning about building a prototype performance Mustang using the EcoBoost 2.3 L engine. Our goal was to deliver V-8 performance from the twin cam, 4 cylinder engine without modifying the internals. COBB accepted the challenge and created the components to make it happen.
The 2015 Mustang was purchased new with the Ford Performance Package option (wheels, tires, brakes and prototype components, hand-built by COBB Tuning's R&D Center) and installed at their tuning facility in Dallas. The end result was amazing. Over 400 lb. ft. of torque at the rear wheels makes this dyno tuned Mustang quicker than many cars with more than twice the displacement.
Originally created as a prototype for models exported to Asia, this one-of-a-kind Mustang was used to demonstrate the performance potential and quality that COBB builds into all of their components. Hand-built prototype components, manufactured by COBB's research and development team in Austin, were installed and dyno tuned by COBB Tuning in Dallas to create this prototype 2.3L EcoBoost Mustang.
Ford factory options include a 2.3 L EcoBoost engine, six speed automatic with paddle shift, air conditioning, power seats, power locks, back up camera, power rack and pinion steering, bigger 4 wheel power disc brakes, 20” wheels, sway bars, shocks, and springs,
COBB upgrades include a much larger intercooler, which solves the “heat soak” problem with the stock unit, a larger 3” exhaust system to reduce back pressure, and a new cold air induction to improve air flow. What makes it all work is COBB Tuning’s expertise in 4 cylinder performance.
Along with the purchase, you get COBB’s AccessPort TM, featuring a variety of custom “tunes” allowing you to choose from three custom dyno tunes, plus the original Ford factory tune. Select the tune and fuel grade you want to match the type of driving you are doing; a performance tune using 93 octane, or an economy tune using 87 octane for maximum fuel economy on the highway.
Now, you might think that with these modifications, the car was driven hard. Actually, it wasn’t. Just over 15,000 miles are on the odometer, and the vast majority are highway miles. Never abused, always garaged and well cared for, this Mustang is in like new condition. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind prototype Mustang!
This Mustang is located in Phoenix, AZ and is available for inspection.
