Hennessey Performance Sets Mustang Speed Record
JUNE 2, 2015
774 horsepower Hennessey Mustang tested to 207.9 mph.
On Wednesday, May 27, 2015, Hennessey Performance made another entry into the record books as the first 2015 Ford Mustang to break the 200 mph mark. You may recall that in 2014, Hennessey broke the Production Vehicle Land Speed record in his Venom GT.
With the performance that Pennzoil® Platinum 5W-30 full synthetic motor oil made from PurePlus® Technology provides, the 2015 Hennessey Performance Supercharged Ford Mustang GT reached 207.9 mph while blazing around the 8.5 mile oval at Continental Tire Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.
“If at first you don’t succeed, just add more horsepower and rpm and try again,” said company founder and president, John Hennessey.
We couldn’t agree more.
With 774 horsepower and 648 pounds of torque, the 2015 HPE750 Supercharged Ford Mustang GT’s 6-speed transmission can launch to 60 mph at 3.4 seconds. There’s a boatload of add-ons available for this beast too, including a 5.0L V8 engine upgrade that includes everything from a 2.9L Supercharger System and to embroidered headreasts and everything in between.
For just under $70,000, you can’t get much more power, performance, and hair-raising speed.
