Back in May of 2016, we reported on an Ohio Ford dealer – Lebanon Ford – that was offering supercharged, 727-horsepower Ford Mustang GTs for just $39,995 out the door. The goal in doing so, according to the dealer, was to establish a nation-wide base of enthusiast customers.
Now, it seems that Lebanon Ford is back at it again. For the low, low price of $44,499, the Ohio dealer will built you a twin-turbo Ford Mustang GT, capable of up to 1,200 horsepower at the crank. Forget about the SRT Hellcat; that’s Bugatti Veyron Super Sport territory.
That price includes the cost of the base Ford Mustang, plus a Hellion twin-turbo kit with 62mm turbochargers, Turbosmart Vee Port bypass valves, and dual-inlet intercooler. The exhaust system is also upgraded from the cat back, and all installation costs are covered. A next-level upgrade is available for another $5,000, which tosses in a fuel pump voltage-booster, uprated injectors, stronger halfshafts, and oil pump gears.
The Hellion twin-turbo setup deployed by Lebanon Ford is adjustable from 5 to 30 pounds of boost. At the high end is where you’ll see 1,200 horsepower or so, but even turned all the way down, this twin-turbo Ford Mustang will make 600 horsepower – 165 more than stock.
Officially dubbed the LFP (Lebanon Ford Performance) Hellion, this omnipotent Ford Mustang GT might just be one of the best horsepower-per-dollar propositions in history.
