In America, installing superchargers on big, brawny V8s is something of a tradition. It’s good to see we’re not alone; German tuning firm GME Performance has released details on its latest blown-V8 creation, a Ford Mustang GT (S550) with an Edelbrock supercharger, and from the specs, we think it could probably go toe-to-toe with the USA’s best and brightest tuner cars.
GME Performance’s souped-up Ford Mustang produces a hearty 705 peak horsepower with 590 lb-ft of torque. That’s accomplished through a Twin Vortices Series (TVS) supercharger system with an intercooler, upgraded fuel system, and custom mapping, along with a nifty GME stainless exhaust system with a driver-controlled valve for controlling the volume. An electronic system monitors the exhaust continuously, and can automatically open the valves without driver input if need be to prevent excess pressure buildup.
Of course, all that’s no good without a suspension and brakes to back it up. To that end, this German-built Ford Mustang GT boasts 21-inch GME FS-1 alloy wheels (multi-piece) with ultra-low-profile rubber, and an adjustable coil-over suspension with separate height, compression, and rebound controls. Floating brake discs help with heat dissipation, as does an active ventilation system, providing strong, consistent stopping power under fire. And finally, a GME aerodynamic package with a front splitter, side skirts, rear spoiler, and a diffuser help the GME Performance Ford Mustang not only look the part, but maintain grip at speed.
Four different rear spoilers are available, and GME is says that they’re happy to work with choosy customers to provide even more customization options. In that way, the Germans can have their Mustangs and thrash them, too.
