The 2015 Ford Mustang is pretty darn good. You're about to see just how much better it can be with some modifications under its belt.
From Mustang shop AmericanMuscle comes the video of the first-known 2015 'Stang running a rather violent sub-10 second quarter mile. It does the run in 9.91 seconds at 135.41 mph.
By comparison, a stock 2015 Mustang GT 5.0 does it in 12.8 seconds at 112.2 mph, according to Motor Trend instrumented testing.
I asked Zach Wright at AmericanMuscle what this Mustang has under the hood, and here's what he told me:
- Custom built, full exhaust system (1-7/8 long tube headers, o/r x pipe, race bullett mufflers)
- JLT Cold Air Intake
- Cobra Jet Spring and Adjustable Shocks and Struts that were custom fabricated
- Drive shaft shop 1400 HP Half-Shafts with stock IRS Bushings (stockhalf shafts broke)
- 1 piece carbon fiber driveshaft
- Boss Intake Manifold
- Nitrous Express Coyote Nitrous kit - Plate System - 150 shot
- Injector Dynamics ID1300 Injectors
- Ford Racing Light Weight Front Bumper Support
- Slicks and Skinnies - 17" Weld RTS With Mickey Thompson Front Runners, Hoosier Slicks in the back
- Weight Reduction - Removed passenger and rear seat. Race weight was 3,450 pounds with driver and half tank of FTW Fuel
- Bama Performance Track Tune
So yeah, it's had a decent amount of work done, though certainly not as much as some. But it shows the tremendous potential of the new Mustang at the drag strip.
Consider yourself on notice, Hellcat.
