So, what makes them so special besides being limited? First of all, the drivetrain system. Petty's Garage enhances the Ford Performance stock 5.0-liter V8 engine. The additions are 235 hp (172 kW) that result on total of 670 hp (492 kW), custom engine calibration, cold-air intake and MagnaFlow exhaust. Furthermore Petty's engineers added extreme-duty TrakPak Ford Performance halfshafts, three-way adjustable front and rear sway bars and a rear axle upgrade.
And in addition to the performance-oriented additions, the crew also included custom rear diffuser with Richard Petty-designed central exhaust, shift know, sill plates, floor mats and of course, the King signs on a special dash plate.
In fact, the King Premier edition comes with HRE/Petty's Garage wheels and a special brake modification that includes a total of six-piston front brakes and four-piston rears and custom leather interior. The vehicle also comes with custom tri-color stripe package that includes blue, red and white stripes. There are also optional fine-tunings for the wheel bushing, coil-over racing suspension and the supercharged engine.
