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.”
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.
The engineering and design teams at Ford Motor Company led the development of the one-off 2015 F-35 Lightning II Edition Ford Mustang, which will be donated by Ford and sold at the Gathering of Eagles charity event. The event is held on Thursday, July 31, 2014 during the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 – the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.
All proceeds from the sale of the car will benefit the EAA Young Eagles program, which has provided free introductory flights to more than 1.8 million young people since 1992, helping inspire and motivate the next generation of leaders, aviators and innovators.
Ford is the exclusive automotive sponsor of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, held July 28 through Aug. 3 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wis.
The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang offers three great engines including a standard 300-horsepower V6, a brand-new 310-horsepower EcoBoost® or an upgraded 435-horsepower V8. Each powerplant is available with either a manual or automatic transmission that makes the pony car a great all-around performer – no matter how the equipment is mixed and matched to suit any individual driving style.
The fewer the pounds a car carries for every unit of horsepower generated by the engine, the quicker and nimbler it feels, making power-to-weight ratio a key measure of performance. A recent study by Autoblog of cars currently available in the U.S. market puts Mustang at the top of the charts in power-to-weight ratio for all three price categories a customer can specify.
Mustang extends its lead further for 2015 with the EcoBoost-powered fastback now carrying fewer than 11.4 pounds per horsepower; Mustang GT has as few as 8.52 pounds per horsepower.
