2006 Mustang GT Hits 191 with 1,507 Horsepower
This 2006 Mustang GT has the heart of a Terminator Cobra and the look of a 2007 GT500.
This video comes to us from the 1320 Video YouTube channel and it features what might be one of the nastiest 2006 Ford Mustang GT coupes in the world. In addition to the interior and exterior look of the Shelby GT500, this muscle car features a 4.6-liter engine from the 2003-2004 “Terminator” Cobra, with a set of big turbos lifting the output to 1,507 horsepower.
Multiple Model Years in One Car
In passing, you might assume that this is a 2007-2009 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 delivering 500 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, but you would be wrong on a handful of levels.
This is actually a 2006 Mustang GT with the exterior panels of a 2007-2008 Shelby GT500. The interior, wiring and brakes are from a 2014 GT500 and the engine is from a 2003-2004 SVT Cobra – also known as the Terminator. In stock form, the Terminator’s 4.6-liter supercharged V8 delivered 390 horsepower, but with a full build featuring a pair of 67-milimeter turbochargers, this car makes 1,507 horsepower at the rear wheels with roughly 34 pounds of boost pressure.
As you might imagine, having 1,500 rear wheel horsepower makes this Mustang an incredible performance machine, but to find out just how incredible, the owner has taken the car to a WannaGoFast event.
1507 Horsepower on the Track
In the video above, the Terminator-powered 2006 Mustang GT is participating in a half-mile top speed run at one of the WannaGoFast events. In the first run, the GT500 replica beats a Cadillac CTS-V with a speed of 188.83 miles per hour. The second run has the boosted Ford taking on and demolishing a Porsche 911 while hitting 191.65 and on the final run, the Mustang beats the tar out of a C7 Corvette while hitting 190.67 miles per hour.
The owner didn’t reach his goal of 200 miles per hour in the half-mile, but this Mustang GT is still an incredible project.
