Ford works with Petty’s Garage to build three Mustang GT King Edition models.

  • Petty's Garage Mustang GT King Edition

Featuring up to 727 hp, the new Petty’s Garage 2016 Mustang GT King edition means that Ford’s pony will be hell for some cats.

Petty’s Garage – the in-house speed shop of NASCAR legend Richard “The King” Petty – returns with a limited number of highly modified Mustang GTs built to the specifications of The King himself.

“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. “These new King edition Mustangs are pretty much the way I’d build my own.”

The modified Mustang GT will come in three editions with small production numbers – 243 King models, 43 King Premier and 14 King Premier convertibles. Customers can order the cars through their local Ford dealership.

Starting with a factory Ford Mustang GT, Petty’s Garage adds a Ford Performance supercharger to the stock 5.0-litre V8 engine.

The supercharger adds 235 hp, for a total output of 670 h0, backed by a three-year, 36,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Other powertrain modifications include custom engine calibration, a cold-air intake for better breathing and a MagnaFlow exhaust.

Backing up that power are extreme-duty TrakPak Ford Performance halfshafts, three-way adjustable front and rear sway bars, and a rear axle upgrade.

Options for all three editions include different wheel bushings to minimize wheel hop, a coil-over racing suspension and a supercharger upgrade that results in a total of 727 hp.

Starting suggested retail prices are (US) $67,495 for the King edition and (US) $90,495 for King Premier.

More details and available options can be found at the Petty’s Garage website.
