We just told you about the brand new Chevy Camaro SS being treated to a twin-turbo setup for an excess of 650 hp and now here is the appropriate Ford-oriented tuner response, coming courtesy of Hennessey.
The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 looks to be in serious trouble since barely two months have passed since the Camaro in its sixth generation has hit the market and we already have a regular roll of tuning projects surrounding it. But fret not, the eager Mustang has its own adepts and they might just like what Hennessey has prepared for them – the GT350 now sporting a cool 575 hp. By the way, the Shelby version of this equally new generation ‘Stang is a really hot commodity after the muscle car market seems to have exploded recently (it’s a really good day for passionate of the segment, with the flurry of Hellcats, the Mustang and brand new Camaro). By the way, in case you forgot, the regular Mustang Shelby GT350 goes out the factory gates packing 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque when revving the 5.2-liter V8 engine. Hennessey meanwhile has decided a “mild” power upgrade is in order and will treat clients to 575 hp at 7,700 rpm and 511 lb-ft at 4,600 rpm.
The modifications come courtesy of the tuner’s HPE575 kit that comes packing high-flow catalytic converters, an engine management update, 1.75-inch stainless steel long-tube headers and chassis dyno calibration or the stainless steel mid-pipe exhaust. With installation, the upgrade will cost $6,950 and Hennessey will give the owner special badges and floor mats, a serial numbered plaque (production is limited to 100 units) and comes with 100 miles road testing and a three-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty.
