A Tesla Model S Plaid Struggles to Beat A Ferociously Tuned Shelby GT500
This Cobra Jet 1400 EV Is World-Record Fast
Renowned Drag Racer, Bob Tasca III, drove a one-of-a-kind Ford Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 to a quarter-mile time of 8.12 seconds at 171 mph at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, shattering the previous record of 8.27 seconds established in its debut last October.
Because this new class isn’t that hot yet, the Mustang Cobra Jet has been breaking its own quarter-mile record for full-bodied all-electric racing vehicles.
First Ford Tried to Ruin the Mach 1 Name, Now It Wants to Ruin the Skyline Name
One could easily argue that the Skyline name belongs to Nissan. It brings back memories of cars like the 1957 Nissan Prince Skyline and, more importantly, cars like the R32, R33, and R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R – the godfather of Godzilla itself, the current Nissan GT-R. The name has been kept alive in certain markets as a sports sedan – the same car we call the Infiniti Q50 here in the States, and now it seems a new Skyline could be coming the U.S. market. The catch? If it happens, It’s not going to wear a Nissan badge but a Ford or Lincoln badge instead.
What a Mid-Engine C8 Corvette Rival From Ford Needs To Have In Order To Stand a Chance
The Ford vs Chevy rivalry is one of the oldest and biggest in automotive history. The two American carmakers have been going at it, across the lineup for decades. We have the Mustang vs Camaro, F-Series vs Silverado, and Bronco vs Trailblazer, but before all of those there was the Thunderbird vs C1 Corvette. And guess what, the Thunderbird wiped the floor with the Corvette, in the 1950s, outselling it 23 to 1.
Ken Miles’ Son Takes the Ford GT 40 Heritage Edition Around Daytona
From deep within the bowels of Hennessey comes a very unexpected project that involves a 2021 Ford Mustang, the black and white color scheme of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 of 1966, and 808 horsepower of full-on, all-American muscle. Okay, maybe I’m over-selling it a little bit, as it is essentially just a rehash of Hennessey’s Heritage Edition from 2018 with a different color. But hey, this is Top Speed, and we love go-fast cars – this Mustang is certainly that, and I want to tell you a little more about it.
Check Out This 1969 Ford Mustang With Mercedes-AMG DNA
The folks at Officially Gassed have uploaded a unique video on its YouTube channel. They showcase a lot of cars that are nowhere close to being called ‘normal’, but this time, they’ve got a whole different animal. The car in question is a 1969 Ford Mustang that’s been plonked with a Mercedes-AMG E63 engine. The engine is remapped and makes over 700 horses! It isn’t just a Ford Mustang with an AMG engine; this car even comes with Mercedes seats, dash, center console, and a lot of other things.
What If Ford Slapped The Thunderbird Name On A Mid-Engined Competitor to the Chevy C8 Corvette?
Ford versus Chevrolet is one of the most epic automotive rivalries we’ve come to witness. You’re probably familiar with the Mustang vs Camaro, or F-Series vs Silverado rivalries, but now an even older Ford vs Chevy rivalry could be resurrected. The mid-engine C8 Corvette is currently GM’s pride and joy and Ford doesn’t have anything to compete against it. At least not at this price range, as the Ford GT is way more expensive and produced in much lower numbers. However, it seems this might change very soon, as the Blue Oval was spotted testing a C8 on their home turf, in Dearborn.
This Bugatti-Powered Ford Mustang Is Freaky Cool, But Crowds Better Watch Out
The Mustang has always been one of the most talked-about cars on the internet. Whether because of its movie stardom, relative affordability, performance versions, being a crowd magnet, or simply because it’s in the hands of people who can’t drive and crash, the Mustang is one of the most celebrated cars in automotive history. Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is also capable of a very solid 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet (530 Nm). For 2020, the GT’s V-8 received dual fuel injection, revised intake runners, and larger valves, making it even more tuner-friendly. YouTube channel “Palm Beach Dyno” shows us exactly that.
This Twin-Turbo Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Is Downright Ridiculous
The Ford Mustang Shelby 500 is the poster child for modern-day muscle car performance, but Ford Performance could have pushed it easily into supercar territory. What’s my basis for that statement? Well, I’m about to show you a video of a 1,250-horsepower Shelby GT500 that will absolutely decimate just about anything on the track.
2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 By Hennessey Performance
The latest car to undergo the Hennessey transformation is the 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. The tuner has equipped its famed HPE1000 package in this car and it now makes 1,000 horses. The changes on the outside and inside are subtle, but massive under the hood. We’re yet to hear about the official 0-60 mph time and the top speed, but it will certainly outperform the standard GT500.
Is The Lexus RC-F Track Edition Any Better Than The Mustang Mach-1?
Amidst all the buzz surrounding electrification, the guys at TheStraightPipes brought in two muscle cars for an epic V-8 showdown. Well, one of them is a true-blue American muscle, but the other is a Japanese. But, before we discount it, this car has managed to hold its fort in a segment ruled by the Mustang, the Challenger, and the Camaro. I’m talking about the Lexus RC-F.
The folks at the channel compared the Lexus RC-F Track Edition with the Mustang Mach-1 in various aspects. Which one do you think came out looking better?
