The crew at Ford Racing recently had the opportunity to take three examples of the 2015 Ford Mustang to the drag strip and set some hefty goals for the cars.
For starters, Ford Racing wanted to achieve a sub-13 second quarter mile in the mid-range 2.3-litre EcoBoost turbocharged equipped Mustang. When fitted with a new rear subframe kit, heavy duty half-shaft kit, drive shaft safety loops, a special exhaust, engine calibration, Hoosier drag racing slicks, Weld-Racing drag wheels and a roll cage, they managed to clock an impressive 12.56 time.
As for the range-topping 5.0-litre V8 equipped Mustang GT, the same upgrades the EcoBoost variant as well as new long tube headers saw it put down an 11.77 second quarter mile. Finally, Ford Racing created the first supercharged 2015 Mustang GT with it clocking a 10.97 time.
