Hellcats Beware: You Can Now Get A Brand New Mustang With 727 HP For Under $40k

Dealership

Is this the best horsepower per dollar car ever?

When Ford built the Mustang, it was all about cheap horsepower. Finally, the blue-collar worker had a powerful car that they could afford, race, and belong to a cult following with. Even though a 435 horsepower Mustang GT costs $32,000 today, we think Ford would be surprised with this deal from an Ohio dealership. That's because Lebanon Ford of Lebanon, Ohio has found a way to sell a brand new Mustang for $39,995…with a Roush Supercharger kit that makes 727 horsepower and 610 lb-ft of torque.

According to the dealer, the price covers the cost of the Mustang GT on which the Roush is based and the Stage 2 supercharger kit that coaxes the extra 292 horsepower out of the 5.0-liter Coyote V8. A Stage 1 option is also available and makes a far-from-tame 670 horsepower and 545 lb-ft of torque. Both supercharger kits void the factory warranty, but the dealer adds a 3-year, 36,000-mile parts warranty for the Stage 2 kit and a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty for the whole drivetrain with the Stage 1 kit. The package is something that is great for the drag strip because it only features performance upgrades for the engine and neglects the suspension, chassis, and parts that help to control the car better.

Despite the lack of upgrades outside of the engine bay, his is a leap ahead of Ford offerings from just a few years ago and even Mopar's current option. In 2013, Ford sold the GT500 for $54,995 and it had 662 horsepower. Even with suspension upgrades, it still had the solid rear axle while these Roush offerings have independent rear axles and modernized suspension. The Roush also competes with the Challenger. Dodge has offered the 707 horsepower Hellcat for the bargain price of $62,495, although we know that demand has pushed these prices higher. With current offerings for the Mustang GT350 going up as demand skyrockets, this may be an alternative to those who just want wicked speed for cheap.
