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!

A phased approach to the ROUSHcharger

roushcharger

It’s no secret that to get more “go” for your money, you have to stick to what works best and match up with the top players who can provide the means to an end.  The world of forced induction has seen a lot of players come and go, yet many have stuck it out to be proven, reliable resources in the Ford Mustang aftermarket.  One key player, ROUSH Performance, is back to bring another series of superchargers to the forefront and demands attention for the engineering & design behind the R2300 ROUSHcharger lineup.

It’s not just about a new series of blowers coming to market, it’s about a whole new approach to getting your 2005 – 2010 Mustang to be fed well and produce.  A base level “Phase 1″ ROUSHcharger starts out with a rating of 475hp /435tq and shows a sticker of about $5800.  “Phase 2″ takes it up a notch to 550hp / 500tq and hits a price point of about $6700.  Finally, for the serious enthusiast, ROUSH offers up “Phase 3″ which is a dual-belt setup pumping out 625hp / 565tq, slated to be yours for $13K.  That’s a lot of power!

All of these setups are (of course) covered by ROUSH Performance warranties and are made from the highest quality materials around.  Check out more in the official Press Release that follows.

Ford Unwraps AV-X10 “Dearborn Doll” for EAA Auction

2010_Mustang_AV-X10_intro

After seeing just how successful the last Experimental Aircraft Association  auction of the Ford Mustang AV8R was, the powers-that-be decided it best to bring about another pony car spin-off to the block for this year’s gathering. Oshkosh is the scene for the auction of the 2010 Mustang AV-X10 which is treated to a star-and-bar glass roof, GT500 wheels, spoiler, and lower rear fascia, as well as some World War II inspired lacquer. With orange trim on the nose and tail, a snow white AV-X10 tail stripe, and an official “Dearborn Doll” fuselage pinup, the AV-X10 is in no doubt a great continuation of respect and honor to the US Armed Forces, just as the Roush P-51B was. Aside from the decor and paint, the AV-X10 is also packed with plenty of punch to compliment its patriotic appearance. The based 4.6-liter V8 has been nudged upward by the Ford Racing Performance Parts 550 horsepower supercharger kit, a tuned FR500S exhaust setup, and is equipped with the FRPP Handling Pack. On the inside, a few nice touches help the pilot keep the pony on the road [course]. A short-throw shifter, an aircraft-themed instrument cluster, seats done up in bomber-jacket leather, and aluminum dash trim all give this 2010 Mustang AV-X10 the official USAF feel from times past.  So how do we bring this glory of the past to the present? Couple up this nostalgic glory and decor with a push-start button from today and the cash you’ve been saving since the past.
