Hennessey 25th Anniversary Edition HPE800 is Absurdly Awesome

Hennessey 25th Anniversary Edition HPE800 is Absurdly Awesome

Cross absurd power and ridiculous rarity and you get the new Hennessey 25th Anniversary Edition HPE800 Ford Mustang GT Ford Mustang.

What do we mean by absurd power? 804-horses of pure muscle. What do we mean by rare? Only 25 of these super powerful Mustangs will go into limited-production. That’s sad for a majority, but super cool for those who get their hands on one of these monsters.

Hennessey Performance plugs a 2.9-liter supercharger to the GT’s 5.0-liter V-8. On top of that, it adds a high-induction intake system and axle-back exhaust system. It also gets an upgraded fuel injectors and fuel pump, plus carbon fiber coilpack covers. Torque comes in at 648 pound-feet. The model shoots to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and has a top speed of 208 mph. If the quarter mile lights you up, it clocks it in 10.7 seconds.

Aerodynamically, the suspension is lower with KW Variant 3 coilovers. Carbon-fiber aero aids from the front splitter, side sills, and spoiler help get those numbers too. Hennessey notes the above numbers come from driving with ideal track conditions and a professional driver. In other words, you might not get those exact numbers. But hey, with that much power, no biggie.

The cool part is you can add the HPE800 package to any combination of the GT. That includes the coupe, convertible, automatic, and manual. Each model comes with special Hennessey floor mats, embroidered headrests, exterior graphics, and name on the decklid.

No pricing info yet, but expect it to be in the range of the horsepower though. In other words, high and fitting of a one of 25 edition.
