In recent months, long-time tuner Steeda has launched a number of new products for the Ford Mustang, including a catback exhaust system and MagneRide controller, as well as the SSV police pursuit model. Now, it has something even bigger up its proverbial sleeve – the brand new Steeda Q850 StreetFighter, which is a supremely powerful and appropriate send-off for the S550-generation Mustang GT that offers up stellar performance, to boot.
The Steeda Q850 StreetFighter is actually the most capable road-going car that particular company has ever built and sold to the public, with the bulk of that coming from a Steeda/Whipple 3.0L Stage 2 supercharger system, along with a high-flow cold-air intake and a unique PCM calibration, which helps the pony car’s Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine crank out an impressive 825 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, which will reportedly propel it from 0-60 miles-per-hour in 3.1 seconds, to 100 mph in 10 seconds, and down the quarter-mile in 10.23 seconds at 146 mph.
Customers can opt for either a six-speed manual transmission – which is treated to a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter and clutch spring assist and spring perch kit upgrade – or 10-speed automatic. Steeda didn’t leave the Mustang GT’s suspension alone either, instead treating it to a laundry list of upgrades including its own dual-rate springs, sway bars, sway bar mounts, IRS bushings, adjustable rear toe links, aluminum vertical links, bump steer kit, G-Trac K-member and IRS support braces, camber plates, subframe alignment, and performance wheel alignment.
The Steeda Q850 StreetFighter is pretty easy to distinguish from regular Mustang GT models thanks to Steeda graphics and badging, an aerodynamic front fascia enhancement package, rear spoiler, Q-Series hood blackout treatment, and 20-inch McQueen Racing Wheels by Steeda wrapped with Nitto NT555 G2 tires. Inside the cabin, the special pony car has been treated to StreetFighter door sill plates and dashboard emblem.
Pricing for the Steeda Q850 StreetFighter starts out at $34,995 – minus the donor vehicle – though a host of additional, optional upgrades are also available, such as an upgraded cooling package, slotted two-piece brake rotors, a roll cage, rear seat delete, and different wheels. For those looking for the ultimate version of the current-gen pony car, well, it’s certainly a compelling option, if nothing else, and those interested in reserving one can do so by heading over here.
