At first glance, this Mustang might look fairly standard, besides the racing decals and paintjob. But it hides a truly stratospheric amount of power. Texan tuning company Hennessey has squeezed 808hp into the car - a fair chunk more than the 2018 Ford Mustang you can buy from our dealerships! The car has recently been filmed unleashing its massive amount of power onto a rolling road - watch the video at the bottom of the page.
This Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang has been built to celebrate the company building 10,000 cars since its inception. Its team has extracted eye-watering horsepower figures from a range of performance cars, including Chevrolet Corvettes, Dodge Vipers and the slightly ridiculous Ford F-150 VelociRaptor. It's like one of our MS-RT Rangers on steroids! Hennessey has also gained internet notoriety for its Venom supercars: the Lotus Exige-inspired GT with 1,244hp and a 270mph top speed, and the 1,600hp F5, which has a claimed top speed of over 300mph.
Compared to those last two, 808hp suddenly doesn't sound like much. But it’s a huge amount, and capable of sending the Mustang from 0-60mph in just 3.3 seconds. Keep your foot down and you'll hit the other side of 200mph. Only 19 examples are being made, all painted in Race Red with these classic racing car graphics. Both the Ford standard transmissions, the six-speed manual or new 10-speed automatic, are available in the Heritage Edition.
Sign on the dotted line and your Mustang GT will feature a massive supercharger (with a 3.0-litre capacity!), upgraded fuel injectors, a stainless steel exhaust, lowered suspension and super sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup2 tyres. A full CarbonAero kit is fitted – there's carbon fibre on the front splitter, side sills and the spoiler – and 20-inch alloy wheels. Incredibly, these performance alterations don't affect the car’s warranty!
“This is one of the most beautiful Mustangs we’ve ever built, and it has the power and performance to match its gorgeous looks,” says boss John Hennessey. “We are very grateful to our customers, team members, dealers, family and friends who’ve shared and supported our passion for building powerful, fast, fun vehicles for the past 27 years.
“This is an exciting time for the company and we look forward to building the next 10,000 Hennessey cars and trucks.”
You’ll see that gratitude first hand – the boss will send you a personal letter to thank you. All 19 cars will also feature unique numbered dashboard and engine plaques, and a letter of authenticity.
