We have some news that just might make the Challenger SRT Hellcat and Corvette Z06 shake in their boots. The after-market tuners at Hennessey have taken their hand to the 2015 Mustang GT, creating a monster. The tuning company recently announced that their 2015 HPE700 Mustang, a supercharged beast whose 717 horsepower and 632 lb-ft of torque, has put its rivals to shame.
“We’re very excited about the 2015 Ford Mustang and so are our performance-minded clients,” said John Hennessey, partner in the aftermarket company. “Our HPE700 Supercharged upgrade will elevate this Motown Missile’s performance to rival some of the fastest European sports cars. We can’t wait to share our specially tuned Mustang with the world!”
To give the HPE 700 Mustang a boost, Hennessey took the standard Mustang GT with its 5.0-liter V8 and cranked up the power with a Roots-type supercharger running at 7.25 psi. With this type of power, the Hennessey Supercharged Mustang can reach 60 miles per hour from a standstill in about 3.6 seconds, while covering a quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 131 miles per hour, two figures that are similar to the Challenger Hellcat’s numbers.
If you’re looking for the upgrade, all you need is $59,000. The price, which includes the base 2015 Mustang GT fee, will give you plenty of ponies, though the company is only producing 500 units of this special ‘Stang, so make sure you put in your order soon!
