2006 Ford Livernois Motorsports Mustang GT

Livernois Motorsports has long since adhered to the preposition that not all project cars are created equal, and in the case of their black Mustang GT, the real beauty of this performance monster lies beneath its Tier One stamped skin.

The usual mode of operation for Livernois is to choose a vehicle that will become a calling card for the performance updates that their staff is capable of performing.

As so chosen this black beauty began its charmed life with exhaust, nitrous oxide and CNC head therapy. Not only did this breathe life into the GT, it was also representative of what Livernois customers might request when they bring in their mounts for enhancements.

These slight improvements allowed the GT to cover the tarmac in 11.86 seconds at more than 117 mph. This chapter of the story was complete and now the crew at Livernois was ready to move the benchmark several notches higher.

The goal was to build a car that made a lot of power, but was still well mannered on the street while keeping creature comforts such as power accessories, A/C, etc.

The heart of Livernois Motorsports Mustang is a built 4.6-liter 3-valve engine equipped with a centrifugal ProCharger F-1A Supercharger and 3 core air-to-air intercooler. The vehicle breathes through a set of Kooks longtube headers and x-pipe followed by a Corsa axle-back exhaust system.

The transformation continued with a critical infusion of driveline and chassis modifications to support the new found power. A Viper-spec T56 6 speed transmission was added along with a RAM 11” Power Grid HD clutch disc, pressure plate, and aluminum flywheel, Dyno-Tech 1 piece metal matrix driveshaft, Eaton Posi differential, 3.73 ring and pinion, and Moser 31-spline axle shafts.

The vehicle also features a custom Livernois Motorsports suspension package consisting of parts from Steeda, BMR, and Ford Racing to help it perform well whether it’s on the drag strip or a road course. Suspensions parts include HD boxed Subframe connectors, adjustable panhard bar & brace, Anthony Jones tubular K-Member, Competition struts, shock absorbers, lowering springs, anti-sway bars, and bumpsteer kit.

To help the vehicle stop, they’ve added a set of Baer Extreme + 15” Slotted Rotors w/ Six Piston Calipers.

The interior of the vehicle remains relatively stock with the only addition being a set of Corbeau CR-1 seats along with their 5 point restraint system ensuring occupant retention.

This mustang looks very cool. I wish I had drove it before my uncle sells this one. This mustang still preserves the good reputation and I hope they could create more mustang which was hybrid or supercars.

This Mustang GT seemed inspired by the vintage cars. The similarity makes it just another new variant of the historic vintage.

Ford Mustang will never end its production. We all know the history of Mustang and admit it. You also made a "wow" for their car. The car was very powerful and speedy that’s why it was called a monster in its generation.

hmm a price tag would be interesting

Heh the mustang will never go out of style

cool car !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

The formula for finding top speed is found on Bowling and Gripo’s Megasquirt website. I’m a citizen of New Zealand, so I use metrics system, but I’ll run the calculations in metrics, then convert to mph

There are a few details required to ensure the car is safe at even 180 mph (tires, downforce, rolling resistance), plus the frontal area, tire pressures and actual drag factor and the overall gear ratio must allow the car to ’see’ 770 horsepower at the top speed.

Technically, the calculation for rear wheel kilowatts at any given speed is

(((V*V*V*CD *A)/76176)+RR)

V is the target speed.

CD is the drag factor, about 0.38.

A is the frontal area, about 2.05 m2.

76716 is the sea level constant for dry air at 70 degrees F.

Rolling resistance is over 35 kw at 218 mph, then goes up to unsafe levels beyond that... to tire disintigration past 220 mph. On even a 3000 pound car, it would over heat tires in an instant.

Basically, to get 350 km/h, or 218 mph, you need 630 rear wheel horsepower. 222 hp takes about 770 hp....if you could make the tires survive!

The car did 179mph in the standing mile while spinning all over the place because there was an oil leak that made the car down right dangerous to drive. It should top out in 5th gear at 192 as it sits. If you changed the rear end gear from the 3.73 to the 4.56 so you could use the 6th gear it would top out around 218 or so depending on the drag coefficient.

Around 70,000. What I wanna know is the top speed? I mean, c’mon, this is , at least give us the cars performance specs. I know it made the quarter mile at 114 mph, thats all. My mom’s honda can do that. C’mon!

how much is this car going for [ford livernois mustang gt]
