Steeda "The Need for Speed Matters!" - NFS Feature Film Mustang Hero car!

You may remember summer blockbuster "the Need for Speed!" featuring a specially constructed and modified wide-body GT500 hero Mustang.

You may also know that the film eschewed CGI for ALL live action stunt work.

But did you know who Ford and Hollywood turned too when they need to create a killer action Mustang with suspension that can deliver incredible handling and amazing durability? Now you do. It was Steeda.  

Need For Speed Feature Film Steeda equipped hero Mustang

The movie is filled with action packed stunts and fast-paced driving as the starring Mustang holds its own against a variety of supercars from around the world. Steeda Autosports was actively involved with the preparation of the movie, supplying all of the various upgraded suspension components that turned the stock Mustang into an asphalt-carving performance machine.

When you need a car to hold up to the rigors of abuse and harsh performance driving that is demanded by a thrilling action packed Hollywood movie, you can count on Steeda Autosports to provide the level of performance and reliability that can take the most severe punishment possible… on the street, track, and even in a Hollywood movie!

For the lovers of speed, Need for Speed is loaded with both crashes and car chases. Best summarized as a high-octane epic, this exciting and often funny movie more than delivers enough intense car chase entertainment to keep gearheads ecstatic. With its car chases, crashes, wild jumps and gas-guzzling sense of adventure, the film is a throwback to car classics such as Bullitt and Vanishing Point.

It is a story that chronicles a near-impossible cross-country journey – one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. Based on the most successful racing video game franchise ever with over 140 million copies sold, "Need for Speed” captures the freedom and excitement of the game in a real-world setting, while bringing to life the passion for the road that has made our love of cars so timeless.
