Hennessey Performance is celebrating their 10,000th car mod with a special heritage edition Mustang GT.
In Hennessey’s case, heritage means adding a giant supercharger and making it go very fast.
Hennessey has been taking North American muscle cars and making them even more muscular for decades. To celebrate their 10,000th mod, they’ve taken the most American muscle car of them all--the Mustang GT--and given it a custom mod job that puts all other Mustangs to shame.
The 2019 Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang started life as a regular GT and it retains the factory 5.0-L V8 engine and your choice of 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic. Normally that engine puts out 460 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.
Not once Hennessey is done with it. They add a 3.0-L supercharger along with a new intercooler and upgraded fuel injectors. Once all is said and done, the Heritage Mustang gets 808 hp and 677 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty is done in 3.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 200 mph. The quarter mile is over and done in 10.7 seconds at 132 mph.
To keep things steady at such extreme speeds, Hennessey adds a CarbonAero carbon fiber front splitter, side sills, and rear spoiler with gurney lip. This has the added benefit of both looking cool and weighing less than the originals.
You can keep the stock brakes if you want, but with over 800 horses you probably should opt for the optional upgraded Brembo brakes: 15.1-inch rotors both front and rear along with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston calipers in the back.
Hennessey also adds a new set of performance forged alloy wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires to get you race-ready from purchase.
As John Hennessey himself said, “You can have the car in any color you want, so long as it’s red with white stripes.” Only 19 will ever be made, and there will be a special plaque on the inside numbering each one.
Hennessey offers a 3 year / 36,000-mile warranty with each Heritage Mustang sold. Prices start at $89,950, which is a pretty good deal for the amount of car you get.
