2006 Mustang GT Hits 191 with 1,507 Horsepower

By -

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.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
