Could the new 2016 Ford Mustang GT get any better? Leave it to Richard Petty to make it so. He and his famed speed shop, Petty’s Garage, have pulled out the big guns to modify 300 Mustang GTs, taking the level of performance superiority and overall refinement of these incredible pony cars to a whole new level.
Though it might be hard to imagine how the 2016 Ford Mustang could look any better, Petty and his team managed to pull off a number of fantastic appearance-enhancing modifications. The Mustang GTs feature a custom rear diffuser as well as a custom, center-mounted single exhaust. A rear spoiler and embroidered head restraints both add a nice touch of flavor.
Of course, most people are going to be interested in the performance modifications and they are exciting, to say the least. The speed shop takes a factory Mustang GT, with a stock 5.0-liter V8, and adds a supercharger. A new cold-air intake and Magnaflow exhaust helps things along quite nicely. The result is a finely tuned, well-oiled machine that delivers 670 horsepower.
According to Richard Petty himself, these King Edition 2016 Mustang GTs are exactly how he’d mod them. But what does he know? He only won the NASCAR championship seven times.
We’ve got to start off by saying this: don’t use “Mustang” as a password—for anything. As nice as it is that you would think about the car when trying to protect your privacy, it just isn’t a good password.
Okay. That being said, it is pretty flattering. But why are we bringing this up? Every year, SplashData releases a list of the top 25 most common passwords found on the internet, which—by virtue of having been found—also makes it a list of the top 25 worst passwords.
Some are perfect examples of why you shouldn’t base your passwords on the patterns of your keyboard: “11111,” “abc123,” “123456,” and “qwerty” are classic staples that reappear every year. Popular sports such as “baseball” and “football” are also common reoccurrences.
There were a few new entries this time around, including “batman” and “superman.” But the one that really caught our eye at Shults Ford of Hamarville was “mustang,” which, amazingly, was ranked higher than the two popular superheroes. So while it makes for a terrible password, its appearance on the list is pretty telling of the iconic American car’s mass appeal!
If you’re looking to turn some heads on the highway, hands down, the all-new Mustang supercharger kit is for you. Boasting over 600-horsepower, the supercharged Mustang is only being made available through Roush distributors and dealerships like us here at Shults Ford of Harmarville.
Some of you might be thinking Ford went a little overboard with this new kit, and you might be right. But since when is going overboard necessarily bad? The 2015 Supercharger Mustang kit comes with a massive 2.3-liter Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger assembly, and plenty of other great perks.
“Ford Racing and Roush are known for our winning collaborations in professional and sportsman racing,” said Doug White, Ford Racing Performance Parts manager. “By combining our mutual expertise and high-quality engineering, we are delivering an outstanding supercharger kit for 2015 Mustang GT owners.”
Aside from the enormous supercharger, the kit also includes an upgraded intake, throttle body, fuel injectors, and a software update. Another perk is the air-to-liquid intercooler system, adding even more performance to put the Mustang over the edge.
With this much power under the hood, the supercharged Mustang is sure to impress any car enthusiast.
