Hennessey Transforms Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Into Fearsome 1,000 HP Beast
As Hi Consumption notes, Ford’s superlative ‘Stang comes loaded stock with 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque from a supercharged 5.2-liter V8. To achieve four-figure horses and 850 pound-feet of torque (on E85 fuel), the Texas tuner upgrades numerous engine components, including the supercharger’s drive pulley, belt, and hub assemblies.
Other additions include high-flow fuel injectors, anodized billet fuel rails, a new fuel line, and a better intercooler cooling brick, along with requisite engine and transmission calibrations.
The result of these tweaks? An blistering monster of a muscle car in the 5,000-8,000 rev range especially, and a helluva roar to boot.
Apart from a few Hennessey badges and a Venom 1000 placard, the design isn’t all that different. The recommendation to customers is to opt for the Carbon Fiber Track Pack, which reduces weight with a rear-seat delete, 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, and a quad exhaust.
No prices were announced, but it’ll likely be a six-figure job for Hennessey’s work plus the price of the donor car (around $77,000.) Click here to inquire.
