In the world of high performance tuning companies, there are few that are better known than the team at Hennessey Performance. 2016 marks the 25th year of Hennessey creating high performance monsters from American performance vehicles and to celebrate the occasion, HPE has cooked up a special Ford Mustang with their HPE800 package. This Mustang is similar to other Hennessey-tuned Ford pony cars in terms of the basic upgrades, but there is an extra spread of unique appearance upgrades inside and out.

The HPE800 Ford Mustang 25th Anniversary Edition
The HPE800 Ford Mustang 25th Anniversary Edition starts off by adding the Hennessey CarbonAero front splitter, side sills and a rear lip spoiler. Hennessey then adds lightweight 19 inch front wheels and 20 inch rear wheels and Brembo front braking package with 15.1 inch rotors under 6-piston calipers. Finally – and most importantly – the Hennessey HPE800 package adds a 2.9L Whipple supercharger, a high flow air intake system, larger fuel injectors, an upgraded fuel pump, a stainless steel exhaust system and a proper engine tune. The result of these engine upgrades is a total system output of 804 horsepower and 648lb-ft of torque.

When that HPE800 Ford Mustang GT hits the drag strip, it is capable of running through the ¼ mile in 10.7 seconds with a speed of 133 miles per hour. Also, while there is no official top speed listed for the HPE800 Mustang, we know that the HPE750 Mustang (with “only” 774hp) is able to hit a top speed of 207.9 miles per hour.

In other words, the Hennessey tuned HPE800 Ford Mustang GT is one wicked performance machine, but to enhance the car even more for the 25th anniversary, the company adds unique stripes and badging on the outside along with commemorative badging on the inside.

The price hasn’t been announced, but we know that the HPE800 Ford Mustang 25th Anniversary Edition will be limited to just 25 units, so if you are in the market for a very fast, very limited American muscle car, you might want to contact Hennessey Performance soon – as they are likely to sell out in a hurry.
