This car would take you on one heck of a ride! With the speedometer going up to 8,500 RPMs and a top speed of 145 miles per hour, this car is a beast. It could get you into a lot of trouble with little effort. Most of the muscle cars today are v8’s like this one. What’s the difference you ask? V8’s have different timings when it comes to how the pistons fire. This car is a naturally aspirated v8 which means the pistons fire evenly; I have a link up above that will show you all about it. Just watch! In the video they show you the difference between a regular v8 and the naturally aspirated v8. It’s pretty shocking how big of a difference there is between the two of them. The video shows a drummer copying the sound each engine makes. The regular v8 fires in an uneven pattern: R R L R L L R L, and so on. This car is just a simple R L R L pattern. It’s pretty interesting to see the drummer do these patterns.
The Beauty of this Car
Another thing I love about this car is to see how much time and work Ford put in on this car, even in the tires. Up front, six-piston Brembo™ calipers and 15.5-inch SHW multi-piece rotors are cross-drilled and vented to store and dissipate energy, so they perform to track standards and resist fading. You can thank Ford Performance for that. Now for the specs of the engine: 😍😍😍 This car has a 5.2L naturally aspirated v8, which is making around 526 hp (horsepower). It is making 429 FT LB of torque. For the average person, this just means the amount of force put on the rear tires. If you really want to have it explained to you just google
“Torque for Dummies”.
If I Had this Car
If I had this bad-boy I would crank some tunes like some old rock like AC/DC, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Halen, Quiet Riot all those bands. It would be a good car to roast the tires on it definitely. It would be so fun to have a day on open track and do whatever you want burn the tires off of it that to me is what Mustang is, is to be wild and free like a wild mustang.
