    Don't you guys think this is ridiculous for an aftermarket company to compare their supercharger kit to our hellcat stock production factory? What's your opinion? Why would we be very afraid as stated in the first part of the paragraph below? Nothing will feel like the hellcat in terms of driving experience and raw power.

    Texas-tuned HPE700 Mustang has firepower to battle Corvette Z06 & SRT Hellcat

    Sealy, Texas- Hellcat and Z06, be very afraid. Because when that 2015 Mustang 5.0L with the Hennessey script on its decklid sidles up next to you at the stoplight, it might very well be packing 717 supercharged horsepower. Dig the spurs in, pilgrim, and she'll bolt to 60 mph in a scant 3.6 seconds. Keep your foot down, and the pressurized Coyote 5.0-liter 4-cammer will blaze to a white-hot 11.2-second quarter mile at 131 mph. It's ponycar meets supercar.

    "We're very excited about the 2015 Ford Mustang and so are our performance-minded clients," said John Hennessey. "Our HPE700 Supercharged upgrade will elevate this Motown Missile's performance to rival some of the fastest European sports cars. We can't wait to share our specially tuned Mustang with the world!"

    "This thing is uncaged, absolutely nuts," says Hennessey partner Don Goldman. "We're thrilled to offer a 2015 Mustang that will outperform some of the fastest cars currently offered, at a lower price point."

    Key to that 717 bhp (and the HPE700's deep well of torque-632 lb-ft at 4400 rpm) is the Roots-type high-helix supercharger packing 7.25 psi of boost. Helping the Coyote V8 breathe more deeply is a high-flow throttle body and stainless-steel exhaust system. Upgraded injectors and fuel pump help feed the V8, under command of Hennessey's proprietary engine management calibration.

    Just 500 units of the HPE700 will be produced for the 2015 Mustang model year. Pricing starts at $59,500 USD including the base 2015 5.0L Mustang GT. But greater personalization and performance can be had by adding options such as CarbonAero carbon-fiber bodywork (front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser and rear lip spoiler), 20-in. Hennessey H10 wheels shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport 2 tires, and a Brembo brake package with 15.1-in. front rotors. As a package, they give the Mustang improved downforce, cornering and braking to keep pace with the colossal supercharged power.

    New 2015 Hennessey Mustangs can be ordered through any of AutoNation's 37 Ford dealerships across America. A high-performance upgrade for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost-powered Mustang is also under development.

    Besides, the numbers they are quoting for 0-60 and the quarter mile, I would be willing to go head to head with them anytime

    I
    I am positive these will NOT hold up like the Hellcat will. It doesn't sound like they are reinforcing all the other parts they need to.:confused: Plus, From what we have read, 707 is conservative! Bite me HPE700, I'm not scared and neither is my sexy beast Hellcat!:p

    very weak comparison, the hellcat engine is a ground up built race engine with a 10 year 100k milage warranty.....what is the hennessy warranty? limited warranty..if it breaks we will replace some parts maybe. When the public gets to take the emissions detune out of the cat and do a few other things to it....they will be laughing in the mirror at the stang...if you have good enough vision to see that far.

    We should all remember that this Hennessey will still have the sex appeal of a dead snake on the highway. It still just a Mustang after all!!!

    Exactly plus we get factory warranty and I'm sure someone will be tuning the hellcat back to its former 825hP once they get it lol

    Lol exactly my
    Point. I'm willing to bet those mustang owners will pay a good premium and get only a 1 yr warranty at most. Can't wait to see who tunes the hellcat back to its non comforming emissions standard of 825HP lol

    I'm not even going to pay attention to what hennesy does because my local tuner can probably get the hellcat up to 900hp with bolt ons. lol.
