Pure Power Motorsports has announced it will debut its line of twin-turbocharged Shadrach Mustangs with a limited run of Signature Editions commemorating Super Stock drag racing legends Hubert Platt and Randy Payne.
The Shadrach coupe, a twin-turbocharged beast built on the 2006 Ford Mustang chassis, kicks off a limited run of Signature Editions commemorating Super Stock drag racing legends Hubert Platt and Randy Payne.
Pure Power Motorsports, of Powder Springs, Ga., started with a 2006 Mustang GT then began stripping it to the point that only the Vista Blue factory paint remains. The stock 4.6-liter block is transformed into a 900-horsepower monster with a crate of plethora of performance goodies, including an advanced fuel injection system that allows a smooth idle and emissions that fall within federal guidelines! Two water-to-air turbochargers and intercooler radiators pump cool air into the aluminum V8 through a vintage eight-stack system, which is a type of flashy intake favored by old school drag racers in the 1960s and ’70s. Backed with a six-speed racing transmission means the driver can always find a gear for acceleration, whether on the street or strip.
the Shadrach Mustang’s suspension and chassis components were chosen for serious high-speed use. They include an AJE tubular K-member, control arms, shock tower bar, adjustable front sway bar, adjustable track bar and subframe stiffener; Ohlin coil-over double-adjustable shocks; Metco billet front strut tower bar, lower rear control arms and upper link bracket; and HyperCo coil springs. Brakes are beefy Brembos - 14-inch cross-drilled fronts and 13.5-inch cross-drilled rears - set behind 20-inch forged aluminum Weld Racing wheels and Toyo tires.
The interior features a six-point chromoly rollcage, leather-wrapped Recaro front seats, matching rears, G-Force five-point harnesses and a carbon-fiber dash.
PPM’s styling package turns a “cute commuter” Mustang into a dragstrip icon, with every part functional and unique to the Shadrach. The unique front bumper cover, which incorporates an aerodynamic carbon-fiber air splitter and billet grille, gives the Shadrach the face of a predator. Its raised hood is an organic sculpture that sprouts twin air inlet scoops in front, then presents the turbo engine’s polished aluminum intake like a Best of Show trophy. Side skirts molded in carbon-fiber hide all but the outlets of the side exhaust pipes. A Pro Stock adjustable wing and lower air diffuser maintain clean airflow as the Shadrach carves its way through the atmosphere.
Even the factory Ford paint receives special attention - layers of pearl protected by many coats of clear - and a unique Shadrach wings/flames logo on the hood.
