$139,500 USD is a hefty price to pay for this Hennessy-tuned Ford Mustang.
Would you pay $139,500 for a 2016 Ford Mustang? Actually… I should rephrase that. Would you pay $139,500 USD (about $183,700 CAD) for an 805-horsepower, Hennessey-tuned, one-of-25 Ford Mustang with just 18 miles (29 kilometres) on the odometer? Much better.
Though still more expensive than your average pony car, this Hennessey Ford Mustang GT 25th Anniversary Edition is for sale on eBay, and for some, it might be worth the hefty asking price. It’s one of just 25 examples built by the Texas tuning firm in celebration of their 25th anniversary, and cranks out an impressive amount of power with looks to match.
The exterior wears a stunning ruby red paint job and comes accented with a carbon fibre front splitter, carbon fibre side sills, aggressive Hennessey H10 lightweight 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P zero tires, and some 25th anniversary badging to top it all off. Handsome, but subtle upgrades when you consider everything that’s going on under the hood.
That aforementioned 805 horsepower is achieved courtesy of a Ford 5.0-litre V8 engine and Hennessey’s addition of a 2.9-litre Whipple supercharger. Other features like a carbon fibre high-flow air induction system, an axle-back exhaust system upgrade, upgraded fuel injectors, and a KW Variant 3 lowered suspension system come with the package, as well as a few other go-fast fixtures. All that comes paired to a six-speed manual gearbox.
The interior doesn’t have much in the way of upgrades - some Hennessey “premium” floor mats and embroidered headrests are enough to warn passengers of their eventual demise. While a 25th anniversary certificate of authenticity and a three year/36,000 mile (58,000 km) limited warranty is included with the purchase.
For those of you with deep pockets and a love for all things Mustang, a little over two days are left on the auction, with the seller giving you the option to "Buy It Now" for $139,500 USD, or make a relatively similar offer.
