Many aftermarket companies have gotten their hands on the new 2015 Mustang. We’ve seen plenty hit the drag strip, but Hillbank decided to take theirs to the track. Here’s what they discovered.
Chalk up another win for Bama Performance. The company has broken the world record in the quarter-mile for a naturally aspirated 2015 Mustang with a time of 11.2 at 121 mph, and they’ve got the paperwork to prove it.
Although the title of the video on the YouTube channel states “Whipple and Turbo Cobras,” we can’t see a turbo Cobra … anywhere. Maybe we’re blind; then again, maybe we’re not, but I digress because you don’t need turbos when you’ve got blowers this big.
I can’t quite put my finger on it, but for some reason this video reminds me of what would happen if the TV crew from the show Cops decided to do a “Mustangs gone bad” reel, “Bad Boys” theme music and all.
The dragstrip is a hell of a way to enjoy a Mustang Cobra with 730 horsepower and 800 lb-ft of torque, but the ol’strip does have a few drawbacks … like the risk of crashing and flipping your ride.
