The folks at Hennessey Performance have built and tuned their 10,000th vehicle, and Hennessey Performance Engineering is commemorating this milestone with the production of a limited production car, the Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang.
The Mustang draws inspiration from the Ford GT Heritage Edition, whilst the Hennessey Mustang’s 5.0-litre supercharged V8 engine has been modified to now produce 602kw at 7,200rpm and 918nm of torque at 4,500rpm. And because of this, the Heritage Edition is capable of sprinting from 0-100kph in 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of over 320kph, while a 1/4 mile will take just 10.7 seconds at 213kph.
The Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang is sold as a complete, turnkey vehicle, which includes the base Ford Mustang GT and is available with the factory 6-speed manual transmission or 10-speed automatic transmission, and is only available in factory Race Red with the white livery graphics.
It isn't only specific to the US-market and can be purchased from US$89,950 (ZAR 1.2 million). Sadly, the facelift Ford Mustang on which it's based will only be imported by Ford South Africa in 2019, meaning the Hennessey Heritage Edition Mustang will not be available to SA.
