We have the genuine boutique carmakers which usually produce sports cars and supercars, and then we have more or less-known boutique car manufacturers which earn their reputation in slightly different manner. Those better-known often work hand in hand with luxury manufacturers and are responsible for their subdivisions. Such are Brabus or Maybach. But, there are others who earn their living by refurbishing and improving classic cars that we always loved. Some emphasize on performance like Hennessey Performance, while some simply restore the old icons and fit them with modern features. We won’t separate these boutique carmakers by their type of work here. We’ll bring you the list of 15 of their extreme rides that we deem improved versions of the originals. In other words, the only criteria for a prospective boutique carmaker to enter the list is to produce a vehicle based on another car (restoration, replica, etc.) – whether modern or classic.
Revology K-GT Convertible
Based on: 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible
Revology Performance is a boutique carmaker based out of Orlando, Florida. They mostly emphasize on performance upgrades and restoration work, but their Mustangs and Shelby Mustangs are more than just simple resto mods. They aren’t exactly a new cars, but they aren’t your typical restored sixties Mustangs either. Their K-GT Convertible based on 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible might be one of their most interesting works. Some would have gone with their 1966 Mustang Shelby GT350, but let’s keep things simple at least this once. K-GT Convertible doesn’t only have the smooth paint job and completely revised metalwork. It also boasts abundance of modern tech features including those safety ones. There’s also the contemporary 435-horsepower 5.0L Coyote V8 powerplant (6.2L LS3 is optional) and push button start that goes with it. You can order it in no less than 12 exterior and 7 interior color schemes, and that pleasure will “only” cost you $154,615 without the extras.
