Watch A Supercharged Mustang Unleash 780 HP On The Autobahn

Video / Comments

This thing goes like stink.

Living in Germany must be amazing. Not only do you have some of the world's best automotive manufacturers in your back yard, you also have unbridled access to the Autobahn, parts of which are derestricted. However, since this is a European country and import costs are generally rather high, we rarely get to see any American motors stretching their legs on this piece of driving nirvana. We have seen a Charger SRT Hellcat opened up on the famous road, but not much else. Sure, there are countless videos of Porsches and Audis - including the RS Q8, but now we get to see a supercharged Mustang driven hard.

The car in question is a Mustang GT with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 under the hood. According to the video, this car produces a whopping 780 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, up from 460 hp and 420 lb-ft. in standard form. By comparison, the base Mustang GT can get from 0-62 mph in around 4.8 seconds, but this supercharged one is claimed to cut that right down to 3.6 seconds. Top speed has also increased from 155 mph to 205, but sadly, the driver in the video taps off the gas before touching 160 mph. Roadworks and plenty of traffic are part of the reason, but we'd love to see him achieve the car's true potential.

This is a modified car, but we'd love to see Ford do some testing in Europe with its own supercharged cars. Perhaps the next generation of the GT500 could do some top-end runs on the Autobahn (since they're not officially selling the S550 GT500 there), but with reports of possible new legislature condemning the unregulated sections of the Autobahn regularly resurfacing, there's a chance that this kind of speed will be limited to the back straight of the Nurburgring or Volkswagen's test facility where the Bugatti Chiron achieved V-max in the relatively near future. If you have the opportunity to experience this as the driver in the above video did, we suggest you get to it ASAP.
