The Classic ’60s Mustang Gets A Modern Makeover From Revology

The Ford Mustang has never been a better performance car. With a range of powerful engines and a track-focused GT350R derivative, pony car fans should have zero complaints.

However, the performance capabilities of the current Mustang can’t stop classic car fans from fawning over the 1960s ‘stang. The iconic fastback and convertible body styles are perhaps even cooler today than they were back then. For this reason, gearheads can’t get enough of restored Mustangs, Chargers, Cuda’s, and other storied muscle cars.

There are plenty of speciality shops out there that will happily wrench on your classic car, but few that build an automotive legend from scratch. Revology prides itself on its Mustang Replicas – not just because they look cool – because they’re built from the ground up to have the presence of an original Mustang, with the performance and comfort of a modern sports car.

Revology founder Tom Scarpello ran Ford’s Special Vehicle Team from 1998 to 2004 and has been restoring and racing Mustangs since 1982. It’s safe to say he has a passion for these cars. In fact, his whole team has an unshakable appreciation for the original pony car – every employee is called a “Revologist,” signifying their resolve to make classic cars like new.


Revology Cars manufactures each Mustang Replica from its headquarters in Orlando, Florida. Five body styles are available and can be customized with a number of unqiue interior, powertrain, transmission, suspension, braking, and safety components. Replica options include the 1966 GT Convertible, 1966 GT 2+2 Fastback, 1966 Shelby GT350, 1967 Shelby GT500, and 1968 GT 2+2 Fastback.

At the heart of each Revology Mustang is a 5.0-liter “Coyote” V8 from Ford. Output depends on both the model and whether the buyer adds a Roush supercharger. Between 435 and 600 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels via a five- or six-speed manual transmission, or an automatic gearbox.

A Revology Mustang Replica doesn’t come cheap, with the cheapest model (GT Convertible) starting at $160,000. That amount of cash buys you some pretty awesome new cars, but if you want a new Mustang with classic appeal, it doesn’t get much better than Revology.

EPA plague in the U.S.

President Biden has witnessed enormous growth in electric vehicle (EV) sales since taking office, with sales tripling and the total amount of available models doubling. For example, over 130,000 public charging stations for electric cars have been deployed across the United States, indicating a 40% increase over prior years.

In addition, since Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law, the private sector has spent over $120 billion in domestic electric vehicle and battery production. Now the EPA has introduced new rules and regulations surrounding EVs to further accelerate America's movements toward more environmentally friendly automobiles.

Polestar 3 and Volvo EX90 production is taking longer than anticipated
Production delays hit Polestar 3 and Volvo EX90: What’s behind the extended production time?
Polestar 3 and Polestar 4 on stage during unveiling ceremony

Last month, Volvo unveiled the new 2025 Polestar 4. It’s an electric SUV that will compete against the Tesla Model X — but it will be cheaper with a price tag of around $60,000. The 2024 Polestar 3 and Volvo EX90 were also unveiled late last year as part of the Swedish carmaker’s plan to bring an all-electric vehicle lineup to the U.S.  

Both the Polestar 3 and Volvo EX90 were scheduled for production in mid-2023 with delivery slated for later this year. However, the production plans have changed and Polestar says we have to wait until early 2024 for the new Polestar and Volvo cars. What's the reason for the pushback? It has something to do with software issues. 
Polestar needs more time to develop and test the software
According to the Swedish automaker, it needs "additional time for final software development" before manufacturing the Polestar 3. Since the Volvo EX90 shares the same platform as the Polestar 3, it will also be affected. However, the automaker clarified that the upcoming Polestar 4 won't be affected and it will be delivered on the initial schedule.

Front view of AMG SL 43

Two years ago, Mercedes-AMG unveiled the SL Roadster, also known as the R232. Mercedes-AMG reimagined it by adding a new fabric roof, modern tech modification, and a standard two-plus-two seating layout. Two variants of the R232 were immediately available for sale in the U.S. — the AMG SL 63 and AMG SL 55.

There was just one thing missing — the entry-level SL Roadster dubbed the AMG SL 43, was not made available in the U.S. despite it being sold in Europe. Luckily, Mercedes-AMG just announced that the AMG SL 43 will be available to order in the U.S. starting this summer.
