Supercharged 2015 Mustang GT Sets New Quarter Mile Record with 9.59s Pass

While The Blue Oval’s Ford Performance arm is busy giving us 2015 Mustang track animals and Shelby American has the supercharged 750 hp area covered, small aftermarket developers are out there on the drag strip, making sure that quarter mile record is pushes further and further.

Speaking of which, the 2015 Mustang record has fallen over the weekend, when a shop called Team Beefcake Racing managed to beat their own time. Thus, the record went from 9.73s at 142 mph to 9.59s at 145 mph, as they posted on the Mustang6G forums. For the record, the 60-foot roll took 1.47 seconds. In case you're wondering, the stock 2015 Mustang GT plays the quarter mile game in the high 12-second range.

The exact output of their S550 hasn’t been announved, but we do know the Coyote five-oh V8 under the hood has received a Vortech Billet JT trim supercharger. For the record (no pun intended), their website shows they sell kits that take the muscle up to 1,200 ponnies.

Further down the power line, we find an Exedy clutch pack, as well as DSS axles. As for the Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), this has been left in stock condition for now.

The Mustang, which tips the scales at 3,935 lbs (that’s kg for all you reading this across the pond) and uses the stock IRS (independent rear suspension). While the Ford ran on 17-inch drag radials, the team reckons they could achieve similar times on street-legal tires and they’re planning to prove it soon. In fact, they’ve announced an 8-second pass as their next goal.

While the pic above is the only proof of the run, we do have a video showing an earlier drag strip adventure of their Mustang that you can watch below.
