2015 Hennessey Ford Mustang GT is to be heard of a lot in the future. The reason for this is that it has been supercharged and can pump out 774 HP! Well, this is not new information, but what I'm going to tell you is simply marvelous. The tuned muscle car has been tested to 207.9 mph! To film this achievement, the TV celebrity Jay Leno visited Texas tuner and he is going to present it in upcoming TV series on CNBC.
Behind the steering wheel was the professional driver, Brian Smith, who drove HPE750 Supercharged Mustang to a top speed of 207.9 mph. As a matter of fact this is the first 2015 Mustang to break the 200 mph mark.
The record-making happened at the Continental Tire Proving Grounds located in Uvalde, Texas. The 8.5 mile track is the same one where John Hennessey drove the HPE700 Mustang to a top speed of 195 mph back in February. Both test speeds were validated with Racelogic's VBox 3i GPS data logging system.
2015 HPE750 Supercharged Mustang GT is fitted with a supercharged 2.9 liter system for its 5.0L V8 engine. It gives it superpowers so the car is now capable of reaching 774 hp (569 kW) at 7,300 rpm and 878 Nm (648 lb-ft) at 4,400 rpm. The 0-60 mph acceleration is reached within 3.4 seconds, while the 1⁄4 mile is covered in 10.9 seconds at 133 mph.
Only 500 units of this specific car will be produced. Over 50 orders have already been confirmed, so you have to hurry up if you want to own one. The pricing begins at $59,500 USD.
Jay Leno witnessed and filmed the record speed and he is going to feature it in an upcoming episode of Jay Leno's Garage. It will be aired on CNBC later this year.
