Hennessey gives 1,221 hp to the Mustang

hennessey he is a trainer who has no problem working with any type of brand, but he does have a certain predilection for Ford. He has modified both the Bronco and the F-150, and now it’s the turn of the Ford Mustang.

As usual in the company, it has not been satisfied with the standard version, but has transformed the sportiest of the range, the Shelby GT500. Said variant, when leaving the factory, mounts a block 5.2 V8 that delivers 771 hp and 847 Nm of torque.

The firm has kept the engine, but has subjected it to a major renovationwhich includes the installation of a 3.8-litre capacity supercharger, new injectors and a high-flow induction system.

The result has been a considerable performance increase, as the drive now develops 1,221 hp and 1,223 Nm of maximum torque. In addition, the settings of the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission have been recalibrated.

With this new combination, the benefits of Hennessey’s work must be spectacular, but the trainer has not officially revealed them. Thus, for reference, the stock GT500 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

No aesthetic changes

It is curious that the brand has focused solely on the mechanical section and that it has not introduced even the slightest change in aerodynamics or aesthetics, the only novelty in this aspect being the specific decorations for the bodywork. The one worn by the presentation copy is inspired by the Ford GT40 that won the 1966 24 Hours of Daytona and costs $4,950.

It is an extra to which we must add the 79,420 euros that the base model costs and the 59,950 euros that the preparation costs. They will only be made 66 units of the Hennessey Venom 1200 Mustang GT500.
