Extreme modified Mustang is more powerful than a Super Snake.
The Ford Mustang is the embodiment of American muscle, and for the last 50 years Europe has been deprived of the iconic muscle car. That finally changed with the current-generation model. Since launching in Europe last year, the Mustang has been a monumental success with over 15,000 units delivered. Officially, it's the best-selling sports car in Europe. Unsurprisingly, the 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V8 model has proven popular with tuners.
While we've seen plenty of insane modified Mustangs from American aftermarket tuners, Germany's Schropp Tuning has offered its own unique interpretation of how a modern Mustang should perform. Using the 5.0-liter V8 model as a base, Schropp's upgrade package comes in two flavors. Opt for the SF600 engine conversion, and Schropp will fit a supercharger and ECU remap that boosts the power output from 421 hp to 600 hp. Yes, that's more power than a Shelby GT350R. If that isn't enough power for you, Schropp is also offering a SF600R package that "guarantees major league supercar performance."
This upgrade requires significant internal upgrades such as a new Coyote engine block with uprated cylinder liners, race grade low compression pistons connected to a steel billet crankshaft by stronger connecting rods, and numerous other modifications. With appropriate fuel, spark and boost curves mapped into the ECU, this pony packs a startling 807 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque, delivering more power than a Shelby Super Snake. Of course, a car with such monstrous power needs to sound suitably savage. Included with the SF600R package is a custom sports exhaust with four branch manifolds, HJS 200-cell free flow sport catalytic converters, and 76-mm diameter pipes.
With this setup, exhaust back pressure is significantly reduced to give the car a "deep, powerful voice." To make sure the modified Mustang can handle the extreme power, a propshaft and driveshafts are installed, along with KW V3 coilover suspension, and a carbon-fiber front suspension tower brace. Of course, an 807-hp Mustang was never going to look subtle. It's finished in a brash white, green and grey color scheme with 'Schropp Tuning' adorning the car's flanks. Other modifications include a carbon-fiber front splitter and open grille, and a FM-05- R rear wing reduces lift over the rear axle at speed. It also rides on massive black 9.0 and 10.5x21-inch alloys wrapped in 255/30R21 and 285/30R21 tires.
