Supercharged Ford Mustang sets half mile speed record

What happens when you mix a NASCAR driver, Bristol Motor Speedway, a Ford Racing 2011 Mustang GT, and pit them against the toughest competitor out there…the clock?  An awesome display of skill & horsepower, that’s in the least!  David Ragan put down the net to his Ford Fusion and took the reins of a tweaked-out 2011 Mustang GT in an attempt to post up a serious half-mile time.  How did he fair?  He posted a new production car speed & time record of 98.497 miles per hour in just 19.481 seconds.  Pretty awesome feat!

So while that doesn’t sound all too impressive to those of us used to 1320 times, well, put it like this: the best of super bikes was only able to eek out a time just a tenth slower & a mph slower, also.  That’s nuts; a Mustang beating a bike around the track in a 1/2-mile sprint!

Video of the awesome Boss Mustang TracKey

After we showed you the 2012 Mustang BOSS 302 from Ford Racing and its awesome TracKey feature back in November, we got lots of questions on when we would see this new tech in action. Our inquisition is now pacified…

This little piece of pocket tech from Ford Racing allows for direct personality shift between street and track performance trims. The standard black key does all the regular, simple functions one expects in a carved piece of metal. The red TracKey, however, engages a software program which changes over 200 power train parameters.

2011 Shelby GT350 ripping rubber with Hot Rod magazine

While the boys at Hot Rod were busy capturing the latest batch of Shelby goodness we saw late last week, they kept idle minimized with some additional display of Ford Mustang madness.

Only a crew from the ever-popular magazine could make one like this and let it fly; it’s just awesome. Check out the video, inside!

What do you get when you take two Shelby creations, tons of horsepower, favorable power-weight ratios, and an open track?  Duh.  Smiles for miles!  The editorial staff over at Hot Rod magazine was able to pair up the 2011 Shelby Super Snake Ford Mustang against a heart-stopping 427 Shelby Cobra in order to see just which car has the stones to best the other.  The two lucky pilots, Rob Kinnan from Hot Rod & Gary Patterson from Shelby American, set out on the road course & drag strip to see just what these cars had to bring to the table.  So just which car ended up with the big W?  Keep going to find out… Continue Reading →

5.0 Coyote plus Cobra equals venomous predator

We were smitten with the Coyote 5.0-liter V8 the second we got behind the wheel of the 2011 Ford Mustang GT. We described the 412 horsepower engine as “a pot of pure honey” as well as “intoxicating,” and said that the “5.0-liter V8 pulls like a jet airliner.” With a curb weight of just over 3,600 pounds, the Mustang GT is not as bloated as the Camaro, but by no means a lightweight. Would we like the 5.0L even more if it had less mass to push around?

These guys have stepped on a limb, and quite honestly, they chose a solid footing while doing so. Being a maker of Shelby-license Cobra replicas already, the Superformance crew knew they had a good opportunity land on their dock when the coyote arrived in crate form, ready to be bled to life inside a Cobra’s engine bay.
