The Vortech V-3 Si centrifugal supercharger is capable of supporting up to 775 HP. The 78% isentropic efficient compressor means cooler running, denser air, and reduced parasitic drive losses. This eliminates that “nose-over” top end power loss found with lesser, roots-style superchargers.

5.0L V8 power has long been the cornerstone of the Mustang legacy. Ford has once again evolved the platform with its 2015 GT Mustang, bringing power up to 435hp / 400lb-ft from the 2014 model’s 420hp / 390lb-ft. The 2015 ROUSH Stage 2 Mustang takes this system and adds an abundance of performance enhancements, including an all-new racing inspired front fascia and rear wing, high flow upper and lower front grilles, “ROUSH” badging and graphics, a newly-design ROUSH wheel with ultra high performance Cooper RS3 tires, and more.
Built upon Ford’s V6 Mustang, the ROUSH RS features striking styling upgrades as part of the base package, including the 2015 ROUSH Fascia, front grilles, chin splitter, decklid blackout panel and badging, and more. There are also a wide variety of optional components available with the 2015 ROUSH RS, including the all-new ROUSH hood scoop, side graphics, 20-Inch wheels and ultra high performance tires to name a few.
A muscle car holds a particular attraction for car lovers. There is an appreciation of the engineering feat behind the building of a muscle car but also of the image of vehicles that originated in the demand for speed and power, fuelled by the emergence of both stock car racing and drag racing as popular pastimes.
Muscle cars would have been associated by some people with hot rods – old, classic cars modified and fitted with larger engines by dedicated enthusiasts. However, the muscle car segment has been one dominated by the car manufacturers themselves and they take the market very seriously indeed.
Hellcat and Z06, be very afraid. Because when that 2015 Mustang 5.0L with the Hennessey script on its decklid sidles up next to you at the stoplight, it might very well be packing 717 supercharged horsepower. Dig the spurs in, pilgrim, and she’ll bolt to 60 mph in a scant 3.6 seconds. Keep your foot down, and the pressurized Coyote 5.0-liter 4-cammer will blaze to a white-hot 11.2-second quarter mile at 131 mph. It’s ponycar meets supercar.
Loaded with innovative technologies and delivering high levels of performance and style, the all-new Mustang is the next chapter in the life of one of the world’s most iconic cars.
“Ford Mustang inspires passion like no other car,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The visceral look, sound and performance of Mustang resonates with people, even if they’ve never driven one. Mustang is definitely more than just a car – it is the heart and soul of Ford.”
Hard though it may be to believe, Ford’s iconic GT40 is currently celebrating its 50th birthday and, with values of the original 130-plus cars heading ever skywards, the opportunity to own one would seem to have passed most of us by. But help is at hand, for Le Mans Coupes Ltd is the UK agent for the unique Superformance continuation cars – contemporary GT40s so accurate that over 70 percent of the parts are interchangeable with those of the original examples; not least the all-steel monocoque chassis and famous sandwich roof.
For the first time ever, a right-hand-drive Ford Mustang will roll off a Ford assembly line when global production begins. The addition of a right-hand-drive Mustang to Ford’s line-up of global vehicles will allow the iconic ‘pony car’ to be exported to more than 25 right-hand-drive markets around the world, including the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.
Mustang engineers recently finished construction of the very first right-hand-drive sixth-generation Mustang. The prototype Mustang will be used to conduct various development tests in preparation for the car’s entry into the global market in the coming months.
