Hennessey Performance Producing 25 Supercharged Mustangs for Anniversary
Hennessey Performance’s latest special-edition modified Mustang offers top speeds of over 200 mph and will be limited to just 25 examples—one for every year the company has been supercharging engines, lowering suspension, and recasting car bodies in drag-reducing carbon fiber.
The result, the 25th Anniversary Hennessey Mustang, can be specified in coupé or convertible form, but regardless of preference, the car will deliver a staggering 804 bhp. The auto, based on a GT-specification Ford Mustang, also promises to go from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds, and do a standing quarter-mile time of 10.7 seconds (managing to hit 133 mph in the process).
As with all Hennessey creations, the aim with this car is to deliver reliable supercar performance in a package that’s much more comfortable, practical, and family friendly than the latest Ferrari or Lamborghini. And as production will be limited to just 25, it will also be much rarer.
The standard Mustang GT is no slouch thanks to its 5-liter V8 engine, but to push things onto another level, Hennessey has added a 2.9-liter supercharger and tweaked the engine sufficiently to cope with these extra induction demands. There are new fuel injectors; a new fuel pump; upgraded gaskets and fluids; revised exhaust; better air management and a host of exterior changes, such as front splitter spoiler; side skirts; and a new rear lip spoiler, all made from carbon fiber and added to keep the car running straight and true. If things do get a little bit too tail-out, there are huge Brembo brakes to brings things back under control quickly.
The car will ship with 25th-anniversary graphics and exterior badging, along with embroidered headrests, and each model will carry a plaque displaying its own build number. Find more information here. —Relaxnews
