Hennessey's Ford Mustang GT Legend Edition Puts the Shelby GT500 To Shame

Hennessy just revealed the 2021-2022 Mustang Legend Edition

It’s basically a rehash of the Heritage Edition from 2018, but it pays tribute to the Ford GT40 that won Le Mans in 1966

It’s based on the regular Ford Mustang GT with a 5.0-liter V-8 that’s good for 460 HP and 420 LB-FT

Hennessey has added a 3.0-liter supercharger, new fuel system, new air induction system, and a catback exhaust system

The end result is a total output of 808 HP and 677 LB-FT of torque

That’s an increase of 348 HP and 257 LB-FT over the stock Mustang GT

It’s also 48 HP and 52 LB-FT more than what you get in the Shelby GT500

With this kind of power, the Legend Edition hits 60 mph in 3.3 seconds, nearly a second faster than stock

It’s also 0.3-0.4 seconds faster to 60 mph than the GT500 (as tested by Motor Trend)

Moving on, the Legend Edition runs the quarter-mile in 10.7 seconds @ 132 mph and has a top speed of 200 mph

Outside of engine mods, there are a few exterior enhancements as well

These include a carbon fiber splitter, side sills, and rear spoiler with a gurney lip

The new 20-inch wheels are wrapped in Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and the suspension system has been lowered just a bit.

Interior modifications are limited to Hennessey embroidered headrests and a numbered plaque

Only 50 examples of the Legend Edition will be built, although pricing is a bit of a mystery

The 2018 Heritage Edition started at $89,950, so the Legend Edition should start out around the same price
