Shelby GT350 HPE800 by Hennessey Is a Real Beast

There is seemingly a big difference between Ford`s own products and Shelby`s customized…Ford products… if you know what I mean. Shelby has been customizing Ford models for more than 60 years now and has done that quite successfully, with the Ford Mustang in all its forms receiving high-end styling features and increase performance under the hood.

But a Shelby model was also getting its fare dosage of power, and that thanks to the aftermarket specialists from Hennessey tuner.

The outstanding project involves a Shelby GT350 HPE800, which is the top of the line version from the Mustang, the muscle car now looking extremely powerful with around 800 horsepower on board. The impressive performance can be admired in the video below.

The technicians have installed a lot of upgrades, including the lowering of the compression rate on the 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, which automatically led to 808 horsepower and 657 lb-ft of torque, which is quite an improvement from the stock 530 horsepower. This means that the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h is done in just 3.3 seconds, while the quarter mile is reached in just 10.8 seconds.
