What do you get when you combine the legendary Ford Mustang with the mechanical genius of Hennessey Performance Engineering?
632 ft.-lbs. of torque
0-60 times under 3.6 seconds.
And so on and so forth.
Those are the numbers promised with the limited-edition Hennessey HPE700, a 2015 Ford Mustang GT with Hennessey upgrades. It features the 5.0L Coyote engine, but with a Roots-style supercharger that delivers 7.25 psi of boost. It also has an upgraded throttle body, injectors, and fuel pump, along with a special engine tune. You can see a more complete account of the modifications in the Road & Track story.
Hennessey will create only 500 of the HPE700s for 2015, and the price will be $59,500–just under Hellcat money. And for those of you interested in our Mustang EcoBoost story, there’s also supposedly a package for the 2.3L in the works as well.
