    Let the horsepower wars begin !

    With its new 2015 Mustang S302 Black Label. When it was announced last year, output of the car’s supercharged version of the Ford Mustang’s 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 was pegged at 640 horsepower. But as the car spun on the turntable before us at its official debut in Los Angeles last weekend, Saleen announced that the screw-type supercharger actually brings the Coyote’s output to a monstrous 730 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. As with the Hellcat, the S302 Black Label’s horsepower-per-dollar ratio is impressive—especially for such a rare car—at $73,214, including destination. Furthermore, Saleen says it will pay the estimated $2600 gas-guzzler tax on orders placed before the feds finish their paperwork, which it expects to happen by mid-April. For an even more screaming pony car deal, the aforementioned S302 Yellow Label uses the same supercharger and produces nearly as much power (715 horsepower and 595 lb-ft of torque) and does without some of the Black Label’s body, interior, and suspension bits for just $53,484, making it what Saleen considers the ultimate sleeper Stang.

    I wouldn't be counting ford out I'm sure it will be screaming, with the torque figures it has the nads to pull quickly. Top speed, well lets see what type of transmission they drop in. You knew Ford was going to answer Hellcat's HP, now Camaro is up to the plate, the ZL1 is next.

    Honestly I wish ford would resurrect the 5.7 Cleveland, with the twin screw supercharger. That would be a game changer as the reintroduction of the hemi was.

    I bet the Hellcat is on top of the HP wars for only 1 year
