Dubai car designer Hussein Al Bagali designed and built the largest Ford Mustang 4 × 4 for Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan
Hussein Al Bagali began work on the project by receiving an order for an enlarged copy of the FORD Mustang. The designer chose the Ram 1500 chassis as the basis of his creation. The Hrysi V8 engine of Chrysler Group LLC was installed on the car. Its volume is 6.4 liters, and power is 532 hp.
The car body required refinement and Al Bagali had to lengthen it, also new front wings were installed on it so that the car received a complete monolithic look.
The result was impressive, the car is similar to the convertibles produced in the 20s of the 20th century, it even has a spare tire located on the passenger side. But there is a serious difference from those cars - it is very large. The fact is that the new Ford Mustang, like some other cars in the National Automobile Museum of the United Arab Emirates, is an enlarged copy of the original car.
Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, also known as the Rainbow Sheikh, owns one of the largest car collections in the world - about 200 copies valued at over $ 180 million. Some of them were purchased from owners, some were received as a gift, others were designed and created by order of a member of the ruling family of the UAE. Especially for the storage and maintenance of cars, the vast majority of which are on the move, a giant pyramid-shaped hangar was built in the desert in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
The most interesting specimens of this museum are enlarged copies of famous brands. Among them is the world's largest Dodge Power Wagon weighing 50 tons with four bedrooms inside - it is eight times the classic model, the largest jeep in the world Jeep Willys at 7 m high - it is four times the prototype and inscribed in the Book of Records Guinness.
