The Ford Mustang, plain and simply, is a classic, which year after year, decade after decade, never ceases to find its way onto the bedroom wall posters of many. It’s the perfect concoction required for the making of a superb muscle car, with brutish yet handsome styling, a nice whopping engine out front, and a snarling exhaust out back. Nowadays, the essence of the classics lives on the the all new GT350 Mustang, with those iconic rear lights, muscly exterior, and gargantuan engine. For the first time ever, Ford is selling the Mustang direct to the Australian public (why they never did so before still baffles me), and the stockrooms could never be so empty! There is already a backorder for them, and it isn’t hard to see why. With all those Mustangs out there, what can you do to mark your car as one above? Racing stripes? Larger rims? Make it red? Sorry, but if you really want to stand out, you need this.
Hennessey, a name strongly present in the aftermarket world, have developed a limited quantity performance package for the all new Mustang. The 392kW (581Nm) churned out from the brutish 5.2 litre V8 simply was not good enough for them, so they’ve put on a utilised some useful gizmos to give the car a bit of a boost, 36kW in fact, which brings the engine up to 700Nm of torque!!! To get to this figure, Hennessy have given the Mustang 1.75-inch stainless steel headers, high-flow catalytic converters, steel mid-pipe exhaust, an engine management upgrade, and a chassis calibration to make sure the brute can deal with the extra grunt. The results? Have a look for yourself…
