While everybody loves a good Ford Mustang, having one that is unique with more power is even better. That is why Ford joined up with Petty’s Garage to produce three 2016 Ford Mustang GT King Editions.
These special models start with the factory 5.0-liter V8 engine and add a Ford Performance supercharger to add 235 horsepower, for a total of 670 horsepower. But, you can opt for an available level two upgrade that uses a smaller supercharger pulley, to take the total output to 727 horsepower.
In addition to the output upgrades, the Mustangs will feature a cold-air intake, MagnaFlow exhaust, extreme-duty TrakPak Ford Performance halfshafts, a rear axle upgrade, three-way adjustable front and rear sway bars, custom wheels, and some unique Petty’s Garage appearance parts.
“I’ve always liked the look of the Mustang, and the 2016 model gives us a great base car to work with,” said Richard Petty, in a statement. “These new King edition Mustangs are pretty much the way I’d build my own. They are great fun to drive, and have a signature single exhaust. With the new paint on the Premier edition,” he added, “that’s how you know we built it. They look pretty sharp.”
Petty’s Garage, owned by NASCAR legend Richard “The King” Petty, will produce 243 King models, 43 King Premier models, and 14 King Premier convertibles. All models can be ordered through your local Ford dealership.
