1,500 HP Turbo Mustang Runs 8-Second Quarter Mile

This Mustang is a freak of nature pushing out more than 1,500 hp. The car uses an improvisation of Ford's 5.0L Coyote V8.

This Mustang is a freak of nature. With more than 1,500 hp, it’s one of the most powerful cars we’ve ever seen; and it’s all street legal.

The car uses an improvisation of Ford’s 5.0 liter Coyote V8. However, this owner has increased the displacement to an “undisclosed” level. Employing a turbocharger delivering up to 21 pounds of boost and a huge trunk mounted intercooler to keep the apparatus running cool, this Mustang is certainly one worth examining under the hood.

Hitting the drag-strip, the car makes the quarter mile in about 8.15 seconds. And the best part? The license plate reads: TURBOSS.
