Is Ford getting ready to announce a 750 HP SVT Mustang?

Written by StangFreak Technical Editor Jul 18, 2014 at 11:43 AM

CNN released an interesting quote the other day while discussing the new Dodge SRT Challenger Hellcat. Apparently, CNN has mentioned that a Ford rep has told them that the next ‘SVT Mustang’ will have ‘more HP than the Hellcat’.


If that is the case, then we should all invest in firesuits and race helmets, because this next generation SVT should be stupid Freak'n fast – and it is already rumored to weigh less than 3,500 lbs – , which is close to 1000 pounds less than the Hellcat Challenger – and the Hellcat just ran a 10.80 @ 126 in the 1/4 mile. Also, it appears as if the once-rumored-dead 5.8L ‘Trinity’ motor, found in the 13/14 GT500 – could possibly make an appearance in the next gen SVT. It would make sense, because this engine already cranks out a dizzying 662 HP from the factory, and seemingly it wouldn’t take much for Ford to ‘tweak’ this motor to break the 750HP mark, which would re-establish Ford as king of the street legal land rockets. Could we potentially see a 3500 lb, 750 HP SVT Mustang in 2016? Could we finally see a Mustang that runs a 9 second quarter mile from the factory? If you are a fast car guy, this is a great time to be alive – especially if you are financially wealthy; Expect the next-gen SVT to be over the $70,000 mark, while the new Hellcat Challenger is rumored to be closer to $60,000. Regardless, we will keep you posted as StangFreak find's out more.
