Is the 707 horsepower Dodge Hellcat too weak for you? Do you miss the 662 hp Shelby GT500? Do you love the sensual whine of a supercharger pulley? Well, a Ford dealer in Ohio has the car for you.
Lebanon FordÂ ofÂ suburban Cincinnati is a Roush Performance dealer, and has decided to offer the base 2016 Mustang GT with a Roush Stage 2 supercharger for under $40,000.
This undercuts the Challenger Hellcat by nearly $25k,Â meaning you could pick up a new Fiesta ST with the difference, or perhaps a few sets of tires. You’ll need them.
Of course, this supercharged Roush Mustang only upgrades the engineÂ â€” the suspension and brakes remain the same as the standard GT. PackingÂ an extra 292 hp above the already potent Coyote V8, this Lebanon Ford Performance Mustang could be quite scary during a track day, unless it receives other upgradesÂ at the same time.
Naturally, this supercharger can be fitted to any Mustang GT, even convertibles and those equipped with an automatic transmission.
This upgrade voids the Ford factory warranty, but there is a three-year, 36,000-mile parts warranty from the dealer. If you choose the milder 670 hp version, Roush will cover the entire powertrain for the same period.
This could be the ultimate burnout machine. The GT350 would be a better choice for a track addict, but for Friday nights at the dragstrip, or for showing off at Cars and Coffee, this is perhaps the best/worst new car you can buy.[Images:Â Â© 2016
