Hennessey HPE700 Mustang has the power to battle Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

When Dodge unveiled the hot 707bhp Challenger SRT Hellcat we wondered when will Ford or Chevy release something similar.

We are talking about a hot Mustang or a Camaro with 700+ horsepower.

Ford or Chevy has not done it yet, though we are quite sure they are working on something. Instead the famous Texas-tuner Hennessey Performance has unveiled the HPE700 Mustang as you guessed packs at least 700bhp.

In fact the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 produces 717bhp (10 more than the SRT Hellcat), taking the Mustang from 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds. Quarter mule time is 11.2 seconds at 131mph.

“We’re very excited about the 2015 Ford Mustang and so are our performance-minded clients,” said John Hennessey. “Our HPE700 Supercharged upgrade will elevate this Motown Missile’s performance to rival some of the fastest European sports cars. We can’t wait to share our specially tuned Mustang with the world!”

Hennessey will build 500 units of HPE700 for the 2015 Mustang model year.

Pricing starts from $59,900 (£37,300) in U.S and includes the base 2015 5.0L Mustang GT. That is not a bad deal for a 700+bhp car. As the new Mustang will be offered also in right-hand drive configuration there is surely a way to have the HPE700 package on your new GT.

In addition to an upgraded engine and exhaust, additional upgrades available include CarbonAero carbon fibre bodykit with a new splitter, side sills, rear diffused, rear lip spoiler and also new 20-inch wheels.
