While Ford engineers are working overtime to complete the development of the 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, the tuning world is having its own take at building the fastest naturally aspirated S550 ‘Stang. For now, this title goes to the pony in the adjacent clip, which proves it deserves the crown on the drag strip.
We are talking about a 2015 Mustang GT that was customised by Bama Performace and recently managed to pull a pretty neat quarter mile trick - 11.24 seconds at 121.5 mph (195 km/h).

The exact output of the tweaked 5-liter Coyote V8 isn’t mentioned, but we do know the mods installed here.

1. Full exhaust system
  • Custom 1 7/8″ long tube headers
  • O/R X pipe
  • Race Bullet mufflers

2.  JLT cold air intake (stock intake manifold)

3. Suspension upgrades
  • Custom fabricated suspension parts (will disclose at a later date)
  • Stock half shafts
  • Stock bushings

4. Minor weight reduction
  • Removed passenger seat and rear seat
  • Race weight: 3,650 lbs (1,655 kg) with half tank of fuel and driver

5. Slicks and skinnies
  • 17″ Weld RTS with Mickey Thompson front runners
  • Hoosier drag slicks
  • 6. Bama Performance X4 ECU tune with 93 track tune

The aforementioned time was achieved on the first run and while the Mustang proved consistent afterwards, the car experienced a mechanical failure later in the day. The exact problem wasn’t mention, but we’re probably talking about some broken manual tranny part.

Time for a few comparisons

In case you were wondering, the stock 2015 Mustang GT plays the quarter mile game in 12.8 seconds. This makes the muscle car slower than its solid axle-fitted predecessor, but the difference is really small, something like 0.1 seconds.

As for how the all-talked-about 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat stands, the Mopar machine requires 11.2 seconds for the job, or 10.8 seconds if fitted with drag radials.
