Ohio Dealer Sells Nitrous-boosted Mustang GTs at MSRP
Remarkably, Beechmont Ford’s bottled ponies still come with a full factory warranty.
By now, most of us know that the 5.0-liter Coyote is pretty robust. For years, tuners have been turbocharging and supercharging them to the tune of 700-plus horses. And that’s with mostly stock internals. Now, an Ohio Ford dealer will put the V8’s bulletproof reputation to the test. Beechmont Ford of Cincinnati, Ohio is offering a “Drag Pak” for Mustang GT customers. It includes a bottle of nitrous, allowing customers to run 10-second quarter-miles right off the lot.
This isn’t Beechmont’s first rodeo. The dealer already offers 700-plus horsepower supercharged GTs for under $40k. The best part? They’re covered under Ford’s three-year/36,000-mile warranty. That’s right, if something breaks, take it to any Ford dealership and they’ll replace it. If that isn’t the deal of a lifetime, we don’t know what is.
Enter the Drag Pak
The Drag Pak includes a nitrous outlet kit, remote bottle opener, Win Max WOT switch, and nitrous controller. Mickey Thompson Street SS tires keep things firmly planted, and engine modifications include DSS 800-horsepower-rated half shafts, billet oil pump gears, and upgraded crank sprockets.
In an email to The Drive, Beechmont Ford marketing manager Charlie Watson described the dealer’s decision to offer the Drag Pak. “We often see supercharged cars or other builds rolling out and have to add this disclaimer that ‘you’re only a few suspension mods and a tire away from the 10s’,” he says. “The BFP Drag Pak is designed to have the ability to be driven from our parking lot to the strip and run 10’s. No tire change, no suspension change, no fuel upgrades. It’s ready.”
Wait, it gets better. The Drag Pak is designed to be compatible with any new GT. Manual or automatic transmission? Doesn’t matter. Performance Pack? Pile it on. Just bought a supercharged GT from Beechmont? They’d be happy to add the Drag Pak to it.
Suffice to say, we love this. It reminds us of the golden era of muscle cars, when regional dealerships became performance powerhouses. Drag Pak-equipped GTs start at $47,995, and yes, that’s with a full Ford warranty. Any way you look at it, that’s one hell of a high-horsepower value.
