The 10,000th Hennessey Car Is A 808HP Ford Mustang. The people at Hennessey Performance Engineering in Sealy, Texas have been building fast cars since 1991. They’ve now launched their 10,000th build: the 2019 Hennessey Heritage Edition Ford Mustang.
This special edition design features Hennessey’s HPE800 upgrade for the current Mustang GT. With only 19 units being built, it also comes with a number of special features.
From the get go, the car sports a unique wardrobe inspired by the 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition supercar that Hennessey took earlier this year. Both cars even feature the same “1” racing number.
Hennessey’s Special Heritage Edition Ford Mustang also dons a bunch of unique carbon fiber elements, including it side skirts, front splitter, engine coil pack covers, and rear spoiler.
It sits on a set of 20-inch forged wheels developed in-house at Hennessey and also a lowered suspension. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2. For the braking, it comes with Brembo brakes with available 15.1-inch rotors at all four corners.
The most intriguing part of this Special Edition Hennessey is its powertrain. Why? The 3.0-liter supercharger that comes with the donor Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 and all other components. The Mustang is rated at 808 HP and 677 pound-feet of torque. It’s goes 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds and a top speed just over 200 MPH.
As we said before, only 19 examples will be built, each priced from $89,950. Each will come with a letter of authenticity, a serial numbered engine plaque and dash plaque, and a personal letter written from Hennessey CEO and founder John Hennessey.
Hennessey has been able to build a wide variety of performance cars over the past 27 years, including six-wheeled pickups and hypercars. By the company’s numbers, its vehicles have averaged about 650 hp in their power ratings over the years.
“We are very grateful to our customers, team members, dealers, family and friends who’ve shared and supported our passion for building powerful, fast, fun vehicles for the past 27 years,” John Hennessey said in a statement. “This is an exciting time for the company and we look forward to building the next 10,000 Hennessey cars and trucks in the years to come.”Categories: Auto News, Blog
