WTF: A Ford Mustang With an Aston Martin Engine?

There is a 2005 Ford Mustang out there with a dirty little secret:  it has an Aston Martin engine!  Yes, lurking beneath the hood of this American muscle car is a beating British heart in the form of a Ford built 6.0-liter V12 from a 2001 Aston Martin Vanquish.  This is a bizarre exotic car, indeed!

Call it a bastardized hunk of metal, or an example of sheer automotive brilliance.  This Muston, or Astang, was originally built for SEMA in 2006, and includes all oversized wheels and custom touches that you would expect from such a creation.

It also has a name (though I like the ones I made up above), ‘Vanquish’d’, which is sort of clever when compared to some custom car names out there.  What is more surprising, however, is the $79,900 asking price!
