The Texas-tuned HPE700 Mustang from Hennessey has enough firepower to battle the Corvette Z06 and the SRT Hellcat.
Key to that 717 bhp (and the HPE700’s deep well of torque-632 lb-ft at 4400 rpm) is the Roots-type high-helix supercharger packing 7.25 psi of boost. Helping the Coyote V8 breathe more deeply is a high-flow throttle body and stainless-steel exhaust system. Upgraded injectors and fuel pump help feed the V8, under command of Hennessey’s proprietary engine management software.
Hennessey claims that the HPE700 can hit 60 miles per hour in about 3.6 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds at 131 mph.
“We’re very excited about the 2015 Ford Mustang and so are our performance-minded clients,” said John Hennessey. “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!”
“This thing is uncaged, absolutely nuts,” says Hennessey partner Don Goldman.
Only 500 units of the HPE700 will be produced for the 2015 Mustang model year. Pricing starts at $59,500 USD including the base 2015 5.0L Mustang GT. The new 2015 Hennessey Mustangs can be ordered through any of AutoNation‘s 37 Ford dealerships across America.
Hennessey have also vowed to provide a high-performance upgrade to the 2.3-liter EcoBoost-powered Mustang, somewhat in the region of 375hp and we can’t wait to see how that turns out.
