Ford Mustang Legend Edition By Hennessey Packs GT40 Looks, 808 HP

Hennessey pays tribute to the 1966 Ford GT40 Mk. II chassis P/1046 that received the 24 Several hours of Le Mans with the tuner’s new Legend Version Ford Mustang GT. Like the traditional race automobile, this 1 wears a black physique with white stripes on the hood, roof, entrance fascia, and alongside the sides. 

Mechanically, the Legend Version Mustang GT receives a three.-liter supercharger with an air-to-h2o intercooler. For comparison, the Mustang Shelby GT500 works by using a supercharger with a 2.7-liter displacement.

Just putting in a huge supercharger isn’t enough to make extra ability reliably, though. Hennessey also installs upgraded gas injectors, a new gas pump, a substantial-move intake, and a stainless metal cat-back again exhaust.

The updates force the Mustang to 808 horsepower (602.five kilowatts) and 677 pound-feet (917.nine Newton-meters). In comparison, a normal Mustang GT has 460 hp (343 kW) and 420 lb-ft (569.4 Nm), and a Shelby GT500 would make 760 hp (566.7 kW) and 625 lb-ft (847.4 Nm).

This receives the Legend Version Mustang to sixty miles for each hour (ninety six kilometers for each hour) in three.three seconds and by means of the quarter-mile in around ten.7 seconds at 132 mph (212.43 kph). The best velocity is around two hundred mph (321.87 kph).

Outside of the powertrain, there is a lowered suspension. The Mustang rides on 20-inch, ten-spoke wheels with a black complete and Michelin Pilot Activity Cup2 tires. As an option, there are Brembo six-piston calipers with 15.one-inch rotors in entrance.

The exterior elements also contain a carbon fiber entrance splitter, facet sills, and rear spoiler with a gurney lip.

Hennessey failed to launch pricing information for the Legend Version. The organization intends to make 50 of them.
