Hennessey 2015 Ford Mustang HPE700 was unveiled in all its glory. Hennessey Performance has come together with Ford to create the Supercharged Upgrade for the 2015 GT. The upgrade is substantial as it boasts of an impressive 717 horsepower, going from zero to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. It is capable of completing the quarter mile in 11.2 seconds at 131 mph. John Hennessey was very excited about the new car as he felt it was perfect for their performance minded clients. He believes that the car’s performance rivals some of the fastest European Sports cars. And yet the new car has been positioned at a lower price point starting from $59,500.
The HPE700 is a limited edition model as only 500 units have been planned for production and the demand is sure to be much more than that. The car is different from a standard Mustang and because it is a limited edition its dash and engine plaques will be serial numbered. The power of the Mustang’s 5.0-liter V8 engine has been charged up several notches with a Roots-type supercharger running at 7.25 psi. To cope with the added power the engine gets a high-flow throttle body, upgraded injectors, new fuel pump, stainless steel exhaust and Hennessey’s calibration for the engine management.
There are several other features that differentiate the HPE700 from a standard Mustang. The limited edition model boasts of CarbonAero carbon fiber bodywork, side sills, a rear diffuser, front splitter, and rear lip spoiler. The car also features 20-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 2 tires and 15.1-inch Brembo front rotors. John Hennessey pointed out that the suspension of the car will also be upgraded to match the enhanced performance. However the development work is still going on but will be ready in time. The new upgraded model is sure to appeal to car enthusiasts as it successfully combines racing performance capabilities with pure American muscle. It is a limited edition model and if you want to own one of the 500 units to be produced, you can place your order through any of AutoNation’s 37 Ford dealerships across America.
