If you have followed our coverage of MAHLE’s Drive With The Original promotion, you know the engine-parts manufacturer commissioned Petty’s Garage to create a one-of-a-kind, 1,000-horsepower 2017 Ford Mustang fitted with two turbos and adorned in MAHLE’s signature colors.

“Four finalists will be randomly selected from all entries to receive an all-expense paid trip to Las Vegas to participate in the special grand prize ceremony,” says the company. “The ‘Original,’ Richard Petty, will be present when the finalists each select a key fob – one of which will unlock the doors of the customized, twin-turbo 1,000 HP Grand Prize MAHLE Ford Mustang from Petty’s Garage.”

The contest, which also awards over 2,400 instant prizes, began late last year and ends this Sunday October 1, 2017. The contest is only open to professional automotive technicians, so if you are one or know one, be sure to enter or tell your friend to enter.

Leading up to the contest entries closing this Sunday, the company has released a series of videos documenting the construction and tuning of this amazing prize. Most recently, the company shared a glimpse at the paint and bodywork as well as the chassis-dyno testing, which should definitely get potential winners excited.

MAHLE will present the grand-prize Mustang to the winning auto tech on October 31, 2017 at the 2017 Automotive Aftermarket Product Expo, which is held in conjunction with the better-known SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The contest is only open to professional auto techs, but if you are one, or know one, it’s not too late to get those entries submitted. You can enter right here, but the contest closes on October 1, 2017 so don’t procrastinate.
