Naturally Breathing Hennessey Ford GT350Posted by: Lydia Siu onJanuary 7th, 2016
The name Hennessey if often associated with high power American muscle cars. Their latest creating is a naturally aspirated Ford GT350 which utilizes Hennessey’s HPE575 kit; which is a detour from the more common forced induction approach taken by the company.
Ford’s production Mustang Shelby GT350 is already quite potent making 526 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque out of their 5.2L V8 motor. After the folks at Hennessy got to tinkering with the power plant, they were able to extract some extra juice giving the GT350 a total of 575hp and 511lb-ft of torque. All of this was made possible by opening up the GT350’s airways and utilizing a custom Hennessey engine tune to make all the components work in unison. The exterior will be adorned with custom badging which gives a subtle hint that something is a bit different under the hood.
Production from the Hennessey company will be limited to just 100 units for 2016. Alternatively, interested buyers can shell out $6,950 for the HPE575 kit which includes installation and a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty, or save some money and buy the parts right out for $4,995 which does not include warrantee.
