Beast of the Night: Luke Bonzell’s 2008 Mustang GT

When you have a gorgeous black Mustang GT like Luke’s 2008 model, sometimes less is more. Luke Bonzell got the essentials down, making minor changes to the exterior, the suspension and adding some goodies under the hood. His modifications include: Raxiom Smoked Halo Fogs with OEM Black Headlights, an Airaid Race Cold Air Intake, a Bama Custom Tune and a Borla Stinger Exhaust, among others. This Mustang is stealthy, yet aggressive. Take the car out for a spin when the sky turns dark and it certainly lights up the night. 

Handling of a Race Car

Luke installed an Eibach Sportline Spring Kit on his 2008 GT for maximum lowering capability and better ride quality. With these springs, his Mustang will have the sports car type handling it deserves along with a lower center of gravity. This particular kit provides improvements in acceleration, cornering and braking. Luke dropped his car low enough to have that race car look while still maintaining ride comfort. The best part is the Sportline Kit clears both stock and aftermarket wheels and tires. Luke acquired an approximate 1.6-inch drop up front and 2.0-inches in the rear.

If the Shoe Fits

To tie together the mysterious look of his ‘Stang, Luke opted for a set of Black AMR Wheels. With a flawless gloss finish and deep dish contours, these wheels set his car apart from the other run-of-the-mill Mustangs that roam the streets. AMR Wheels feature a 7-spoke forked design that provides a number of practical advantages apart from simply looking good. The finish is tough and smooth enough to withstand chipping and wear from everyday driving. This saves Luke a lot of time and eliminates the headache of swapping out wheels and tires between his daily commutes and any car shows he attends.

Retro Wing for Class

When choosing a rear wing, Luke decided to go old-school with a Modern Muscle Design Ducktail Spoiler. He even had it pre-painted to match his black GT with the same urethane paint Ford uses. Since the MMD Rear Spoiler offered a direct replacement fit, Luke did not have to drill any holes - which can be a nightmare for many modders. He also does not need to worry about added weight since the wing is made from durable, lightweight ABS plastic. Just like his wheels, this spoiler can handle the abuse of daily driving and still keep a show-quality appearance.

A View from the Rear

Luke wanted to give his competition a new view from the back as he leaves them in the dust. He opted for a set of plug-and-play Raxiom Gen5 Tail Lights because they tied perfectly into the dark theme of his GT. These tail lights feature aggressive, smoked lenses with modern LED technology and are even DOT compliant. With built-in sequential turn signals, these lights stay true to the iconic rear styling of the Mustang. Even though they were installed mostly for aesthetics, the Raxiom Gen5 Lights also improve driving safety and allow Luke to be better seen in all his stealth.
