The blown Coyote motor sounds awesome.
For most people, the Ford Mustang GT is all the muscle car you'll ever need. But if you want more power and a spine-tingling soundtrack, Hennessey can take Ford's popular pony car to the next level. In stock form, the Mustang GT's 5.0-liter Coyote V8 pumps out 460 hp and 420-lb-ft, but Hennessey's HPE800 Supercharged Upgrade package increases the output to 808 hp at 7,200 rpm, making it even more powerful than the 760-hp Shelby Mustang GT500.
To show what its 800-hp monster can do, Hennessey took a Mustang HPE800 for a spin at the Penzoil Proving Grounds to test how it performs before it gets delivered to its new owner.
All that extra muscle comes courtesy of a 3.0-liter supercharger system, which transforms the driving experience. Combined with a stainless-steel exhaust system, the Mustang HPE800's supercharged whine sounds incredible. This example is fitted with a six-speed manual, but Hennessey also offers the HPE800 package with an automatic transmission. As you would expect, the colossal power bump has a profound effect on the performance. With the automatic transmission, the 0-60 mph dash takes 3.3 seconds and it will cover the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds at 132 mph.
Unusually, this customer example also has cloth seats with Hennessey-embroidered headrests instead of leather. Other upgrades include a high flow air induction, a retuned ECU, upgraded fuel injectors, 15.1-inch Brembo brake rotors, and lightweight alloy wheels available in 19- or 20-inches. It's safe to say the Mustang HPE800's new owner is going to have a lot of fun in this beast.
Hennessey also offers tuning packages for the F-150, F-150 Raptor, F-250, and Ranger as well. The Texas tuner will also soon be transplanting the Mustang's 5.0-liter Coyote V8 into the Bronco to create a hardcore 750-hp off-roader, which we can't wait to see in action.
