The Hennessey Supercharged V8 Mustang
We’ve already talked to you about the new Mustang a couple times, so what else could we tell you? Well, the Hennessey Supercharged V8 Mustang is another shot of adrenaline to add to your day. All 717 horsepower along with the 630 lb-ft of torque made us getting the driving gloves out, just thinking about it. Our hands got too sweaty to hold the steering wheel and we had to get the sweatbands out so we could see.
It’s so fast, that we can’t stop moving quickly ourselves. Everything becomes a race after you realize how fast you can really go. The Ford comes in with even more power than the Hellcat or Corvette, giving Ford the biggest muscles to flex in 2015. It just goes to show that Ford vehicles are built a little better and faster. The jump in power has given the Mustang an 11.2 second quarter-mile and it now gets up to 60mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds.
Some technical upgrades that made this possible include a better fuel pump and injectors to help keep the V8 going at high speed and the stainless steel exhaust really keeps the engine breathing steadily.
Vehicles like this don’t come along often. And there aren’t going to be many of the Hennessey Mustangs. Only 500 will be made available so it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for them. We imagine that they will probably go quite quickly.
If you’re as excited as we are, we recommend keeping an ear to the ground so you know the second they become available. If you miss out they’re will be more Mustangs next year, but do you really want to wait another year to start measuring your miles in seconds?
