We just did an article on a Twin-Turbo 1970 Pontiac Firebird that was going up for auction in Chicago. That Firebird is an 1100hp beast. Now lets take a look at the modern 2015 Hennessey Supercharged Mustang ($60K) to see how it matches up. Just 500 of these will be built so if you want one you may need to hurry. The cars feature over 700 horses and 632 lb-ft of torque at 4400 rpm thanks to the HPE700 Supercharger that feeds a Coyote 5.0-liter 4-cammer. This setup will get you 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, with the ability to produce an 11.2 second quarter mile at 131 mph. It's nice to know you can get near Supercar speed without spending millions.
