The German aftermarket specialist has decided for an understated approach for the project, which is kind of in opposition to what’s going on under the hood, there are 705 ponies thanks to supercharging.
Ford decided this current generation needs to kickstart the next 50 years of existence for the iconic model, so it graced the model for the first time with an independent rear suspension – and most of all with worldwide distribution. This means aftermarket outlets from around the world get to have a go at it – the latest project is coming from Germany’s GME Performance, which has a knack for American performance. They already have projects for a 680-horsepower C7 Chevrolet Corvette, a 620-horsepower Camaro, and for the SUV fan, a 600-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. No surprise then having the Mustang go for 705 ponies.
They worked on a regular Mustang GT, of course, adding in a supercharger kit from Edelbrock, which also packs an intercooler, upgraded fuel delivery system, and a custom ECU tune. GME’s in-house stainless exhaust system with a sound flap system is also on point, and the still otherwise stock 5.0-liter V8 is giving the Hellcat a round for its money. The sporty coupe also gets height-adjustable coilovers with separate rebound and bounce damper settings, an in-house, race-derived braking system with floating discs as well as a set of 21-inch GME FS-1 alloy wheels.
