Ford Racing Takes the 2015 Mustang 2.3L EcoBoost Into the 12s!

That’s right—the engineers over at Ford Racing did some experimenting with three new 2015 Mustangs. And in this case, the 2.3L Ecoboost model stole the show.

While V8 die-hards are undoubtedly more interested in Ford Racing’s two GTs—a naturally aspirated version that clocked 11.77 seconds, and a supercharged version that hit 10.97—the four-cylinder EcoBoost exceeded everyone’s expectations. Outfitted with only a subframe kit, half-shaft kit, driveshaft loops, custom exhaust, roll cage, bucket seat, and Ford Racing engine calibration, the EcoBoost Mustang registered a 12.56-second pass.

Check out more details on all three cars and watch them all run through their paces at the dragstrip here:
