Hennessey unleashes 717hp HPE700 Mustang
American tuning house, Hennessey has turned up the 2015 Ford Mustang to 717hp helping it get to 100km/h in less than four seconds. Meet the HPE700 Mustang.
THE 2015 FORD MUSTANG has only just dealerships in the US and already tuning house, Hennessey has waved its magic wand over it pushing its output beyond that of the recently released SRT Hellcat. Hennessey says its also working on an upgrade kit for the EcoBoost Mustang.
“We’re very excited about the 2015 Ford Mustang and so are our performance-minded clients,” said John Hennessey. “Our HPE700 Supercharged upgrade will elevate this Motown Missile’s performance to rival some of the fastest European sports cars. We can’t wait to share our specially tuned Mustang with the world!” “This thing is uncaged, absolutely nuts,” says Hennessey partner Don Goldman.
”We’re thrilled to offer a 2015 Mustang that will outperform some of the fastest cars currently offered, at a lower price point.” That “lower price” will have Australians salivating with with a starting price of just USD$59,500 which includes the base 2015 Ford Mustang GT 5.0L.
Just 500 HPE700 Mustangs will be offered for the 2015 Mustang model year. Hennessey says the key to the HPE700 Mustang’s higher output is the Roots-type high-helix supercharger packing 7.25 psi of boost. Helping the Coyote V8 breathe more deeply is a high-flow throttle body and stainless-steel exhaust system.
Upgraded injectors and fuel pump help feed the V8, under command of Hennessey’s proprietary engine management calibration. This helps the HPE700 Mustang get to 96km/h in just 3.6 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds flat. To make your HPE700 Mustang look like the one in the picture a CarbonAero kit can be added which includes carbon-fibre bodywork (front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser and rear lip spoiler), 20-inch Hennessey H10 alloys wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 2 tyres, and a Brembo brake package with 15.1-inch front rotors.
